Milestones Lesson 2: One Reason NOT to Worry About Needs

The changes I have seen the little one go through are pointers to the fact that God knows our needs and He is able to provide all we need exactly when we need them. Teething, babbling, crawling, and other baby milestones occur exactly when they become important. My son's teeth are not visible at the…

How a Momma’s Partnership With God Freed Her Teenage Daughter From a Toxic Relationship

It was a drawn-out elongated journey where the beginning of a dating relationship with a boyfriend began to slowly change my daughter. When a teenager becomes quiet and stays in that distance, to me that meant her mind was loud and busy. For a young daughter to go from doing her hair and putting thought into her style of clothes to just putting her hair up in a bun and wearing lounge around clothes. Something was wrong!

Mommas, what are you stirring up in your home?

As a wife and a mother I spend a lot of the time making sure everyone is taken care of and things are accomplished. I am in the daily details, but if at the end of the day the things I am reflecting are ugly and poisoned I am doing no-one any good by having a clean house and folded laundry.

One Reason Babies Vomit and What I learned From It

The little one threw up twice after feeding. As a professional Googler, I turned to Google to find out why he was vomiting..... I learned that I shouldn't expect to receive more gifts/ideas/revelation from God if I am not effectively utilizing or doing all He has deposited in me so far....

What I learned From Goofing Around With The Little One

My baby has presented me with the freedom to be myself without feeling self conscious.  I make weird noises and faces to entertain him and it doesn't matter who is watching or where I am. I just want to communicate with my baby. I don't care if it makes me look ugly or silly in private or public spaces...........

Lessons From Breastfeeding and Complementary Feeding🍼🥛🍜

My baby's transition from solely needing breastfeeding/breastmilk to complementary feeding is a call to spiritual growth for me. It also reminds me of the scripture where Paul chastised some believers for not growing spiritually.

Mothers are Important for Many Reasons But This May Be the MOST Important Reason…..

"Antibodies are passed from mother to baby through the placenta during the last three months of pregnancy. This gives the baby some protection when they are born. The type and amount of antibodies passed to the baby depends on the mother’s own level of immunity......" While our children are still under our spiritual covering, they must not be overcomed by that which cannot overcome us!

Learning Forgiveness and Patience From the Little One ❤

It's hard, difficult and pointless to be mad at my baby because he is yet to develop the ability to differentiate between wrong and right. In fact, he smiles when I tell him he has done something wrong. Forgiveness becomes easy when we understand that those who have wronged us or hurt us do not truly know what they are doing........

My Biggest Fear about Having Children and How I Overcame It

This past weekend, I visited a sister-friend who gave birth to a baby boy three weeks ago. She shared her concern about raising a child in this cold/evil world. I had the same fear and concern in July, so I could relate. We discussed the fact that our generation is faced with raising children in a more complex world compared to generations before us.

Reasons My Husband and I Can’t Afford to Be Spiritually Lukewarm Parents

Our decision to be more spiritually sensitive and seek God's help isn't out of fear that something bad will happen if we are not rightly positioned or don't do things right. We are simply acknowledging our dependence on God.

Are babies Selfish,Needy or Just Dependent?

My transition into motherhood has given me the opportunity to reflect on the numerous ways my mother expressed her love for me before she died more than two decades ago. More importantly, this transition has brought me on a spiritual journey where God’s love is revealed through my son. It has awakened a new sense of daughtership in my walk with God.

My Mother Loved Me but I Didn’t Know Until Now

My sudden awakening to the love of my mother has brought me wholeness and has given me the closure I needed. I encourage every orphan and anyone who was abandoned by a parent to reflect on the love that 'perhaps' existed. Reflect on the times you shared, the moments you remember, and let your heart feel love.
