Fighting Diaper Change

I don't know where the little one learned the combative skills he uses during diaper change. Most times, I have to give him a preferred item to prevent him from taking off or kicking my face during diaper change. Certainly, soaking wet and poopy diapers are not comfortable. Fresh diapers must feel so good. But,…

They Hear God

Early in March, we visited grandma. After spending the day and saying a 10 minute emotional goodbye, we finally got the kids in the car. One child was having an exceptionally hard night and acting in an unusual way. We decided to take a few minutes and everyone in the car had to say one…

Off to Daycare with Faith

Today, we left our little one in the care of people we don't know. It takes a lot of faith and courage to do that. Please don't judge parents for enrolling their babies in daycare, it's not an easy thing to do. For me, faith in God made leaving the little one in daycare bearable.…

Postpartum Problems 2

Two months ago, my fitness coach shared this powerful devotional by Joseph Prince. I decided to revisit it because I need a testimony and a reminder that sound mind is my inheritance. Dare to believe this with me! I am desperately in need of a perfectly functioning brain at this time in my life. It…

This Day Last Year: Supernatural Birth Story

I must confess that I once thought that I didn't have the supernatural birth experience I desperately desired. I forgot that the birth of a healthy whole baby via a successful C-Section was in fact supernatural. This day last year was the scariest day of my life so far. Mentally preparing for an unplanned C-section…

The Power of a Sandwich Picture

I snapped a photo of my adopted daughter recently and something new hit me. You see the way she is holding that sandwich? That’s how I hold a sandwich. Adoption is a funny thing. For me, identifying similarities is a blast. I love to watch my birth daughter and see my mother in law or…

Four Strategies For Dealing With Chaos

Each of us have different levels of tolerance and I believe this also applies in our ability to handle "chaos" that may occur in form of a messy house, piled up laundry, other housekeeping problems, and work-family conflict. I assume that in less than a year into parenting some mamas have their house operating as…

Fertility and Supernatural Birth Testimony

Fishers of Moms

Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” Matthew 4:19 In December 2018, I was introduced to "soul-winning through motherhood".  After church service, a sweet older momma walked up to me to give motherhood advice. She said I was getting close to a phase where communicating/connecting…

Greater Works than Jesus?

As I do this thing called parenting, every doubt about God's will for me to live the best life is being erased. Haaaaa, it's so wonderful! One of my deepest desires is that my children will be greater than I would ever be. That they will achieve a lot more than I ever could and…

You are NOT Alone

Clothes piled up, toys everywhere, and little people running in and out of the photo. I know life is really never “perfect”, but something about this season for our family makes me see “perfect” differently. I have had the privilege of speaking to several foster moms who are ready to throw in the towel and…

Postpartum Problems 1

Motherhood truly changes many things. This is an undeniable fact I have come to embrace. However, I have a choice- accept the things I cannot change and courageously change the things I can change. Motherhood has brought to light hidden insecurities and fears I never felt before. I have gone from being military fit to…

Bringing a Smile to Mommy’s Face

One of my greatest pleasures as a mom is that my baby girl thinks I am the funniest human ever. My smile is contagious and her face lights up when I'm happy. When she sees me happy, she starts giggling and doing her jiggly dance. It works both ways as well. My heart swells with…

God Knows Your Story

It is always exciting to hear my husband's parents say our little one is doing most of the things DH did when he was a baby. They know my husband's childhood stories and I am grateful they are alive to tell us about the similarities between their son and grandson. That's a beautiful thing and…

This Little Piggy

These days I can be found jamming to nursery rhymes. The little one enjoys watching me jump and twirl while playing nursery rhymes. Those songs are addictive but thankfully there is a lot to learn from them. Apparently, "This little piggy" has controversial interpretations but let's stick with the happier one. The interpretation everyone grew…

Becoming HIS Tapestry

Hey friends, how are you today? It has been raining since Sunday.The Lord and I talked about that, this morning.Of course, He already knew, but I thought I would just remind Him that it has been dark, gloomy, dreary and rainy since Sunday.I said I would be most grateful for a sunny, 70° Tuesday, instead of a rainy, 42° one, but He said, “Look up, child”.

‘still cloudy, Lord, but I will be thankful in spite of the clouds”

So, I did, and I said, ‘thank you, Lord for the rain.I will wear my boots instead of my opened toes heels and my umbrella and I’m sure it will be a good day. I will be thankful, it isn’t snowing.What’s the weather like, in your neck of the woods?

Dear Mommas, You are Enough!

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…

Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey Diddle Diddle is one of my favorite Nursery Rhymes. Perhaps, I am drawn to it's simple and illogical content. My favorite lines are "The cow jumped over the moon" and "The dish ran away with the spoon". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkJ9Htuzc68 In my perspective, the lyrics of this nursery rhyme reveals the faith-filled and oh what possibilities…

Mama, you are SO brave!

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…

Monkey See Monkey Do

While DH and I have experienced a lot of monkey see monkey do moments with our little one, the most thrilling of them all is watching him lift up his hands when we worship. It brings me so much joy. Someday soon, the little one will understand why we lift our hands in worship and…

Messing up baby's sleep schedule is a No Go. https://youtu.be/gBLWpKbC3ww The discourse of abortion is very personal to me because my mother was given the option to abort me due to the complicated story behind my conception.
