Recently, my 5 year old son asked me ,“When is God going to talk to me?”I answered, “Well, He talks to us every time we read the Bible, bud.”Apparently, that wasn’t exactly what the answer he wanted.He further explained himself, “Mama, I mean, when will He use His BIG VOICE? …. Like with Noah!” While […]
Yesterday, my son- Jose said: “The Bible is like a bag of potato chips. Once you start reading it, you want more.” How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Psalm 119:103(NIV) When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart’s delight, for I […]
I get asked all the time, “How do you find time to take care of yourself while raising 5 little ones and homeschooling?” Truth is, we make time for whatever is important to us. Our physical bodies need attention just like souls do. If we want to be healthy spiritually, we need daily nourishment through […]

Stay-at-home moms who take their kids EVERYWHERE and working Moms that never get a break, this one is for YOU! I KNOW you are…tired, flustered, question your own sanity, feel like you are surviving most days. We have traded sweats for nice outfits and messy “mom buns” for clean, dry hair…. We eat standing up […]
So…… I was recently asked to share my testimony about God’s faithfulness through fertility issues and miscarriage… Honestly, I didn’t feel like it. It’s painful. It’s vulnerable. It’s not a happy topic. While I have shared these deep scars with other sisters in private, it’s not something I have ever done “publicly.” Partly, it is […]
Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a Mama. God has gifted me with 5 babies earthside, and a few I will meet in heaven.By society’s standards, we are considered a “large family.” By my standards large is always 2 more kids than what we currently have. What’s it like having […]
God continues to speak to me and show His love for me THROUGH this boy. ❤️ You may be thinking or asking, “Huh? How can The Almighty use a 2 year old to minister to a grown woman?” I am glad you asked! The other day I was feeling quite defeated and my thoughts were […]
God has a humorous way of showing us He cares. My prayer is that my testimony will encourage you to trust God with your life and open your eyes to this truth, You Matter To God! And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to […]
My 2 year old is OBSESSED with 2 things- swords and my house shoes.He doesn’t like wearing his shoes… or socks… or the slippers we bought him for Christmas. BUT if my house shoes aren’t on my feet, we all know where to find them. But here’s the problem. They don’t fit him. They weren’t made for […]
Anyone want to guess what my son, Carlos is pretending that big plastic spoon is? If you guessed sword, you are correct! He has been obsessed with soldiers and swords for months now. He watched a few episodes of “Bible Man” with his siblings and now that is just about all he wants to play. […]
Do you feel like most days you are in survival mode? Do you long for a good nights sleep? A shower in silence? Or better yet, a nice hot bath… alone?
I think we as women, especially, tend to want to be all things to all people and do it all perfectly. But guess what, we can’t!
Binge eating, emotional eating, skipping meals…. why do we do these things? Pain. We are trying to numb or avoid pain. It is because we feel unloved, not valued. Many times, Food issues are our “drug of choice” when dealing with past and present hurts and fears. So, how do we find freedom from this bondage? […]
