73 Questions

Answering these questions was a bit difficult for me because I like being mysterious. However, I think it's a good thing for readers to know a few personal things about me and other authors on the blog. Bukola Orry, one of Christian Mommas' top readers nominated me to answer the following questions 1. What’s your usual…

No Worries, No Fear

Lately, I have been learning how to trust God and pray instead of worrying. Two days after a message in church about the importance of turning our worries/heart desires into prayer points, my family went through a minor gas fire incident at home. I captured the incident in a poem titled Flames and Fury. After…

Testimony Time

I posted this on my Facebook few hours ago and I thought it would be a blessing to share this wonderful testimony here. My prayer is that my testimony will challenge you to rest in God's love and faithfulness. Long post because I am thrilled, grateful and wohooo!! I just received my first text book…

First, Pray

It may sound ridiculous but worrying is the easiest and hardest thing we can do when faced with trials. It's the easiest thing because it comes naturally and sometimes gives us a false sense of control. It is also the hardest thing because it has negative impacts on our spirit, soul, and body. Philippians 4:6…

Praying for your Kid’s School, Teachers and Students

There is one thing I really like about the little one's school, they use WEBCAM. So, my husband and I get to check on the little one remotely anytime. Whenever the little one cries during drop off, I quickly call my husband and ask him to check on our little one. It feels so great…

5 Creative Ways You Can Still Give Your Child A Memorable Summer On A Budget

August is here and summer break is almost over. To some moms this is great news, because it means the kids will soon be off to school and no longer complaining about how bored they are. To other moms (like me), it’s somewhat sad news. Back to school means back to hectic schedules, more restrictions…

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…

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…

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…

A Walking Testimony

From one step to five steps and finally countless steps, we have been cheering the little one along like the cloud of witnesses. DH and I have been waiting for these days. Honestly, I have been imagining the little one holding my legs while I workout and moving all over the house with HIS OWN…

Reblog:The Season of ‘No’

Wonderful spiritual lesson by another Christian momma raising a toddler. My little one is only 9-month-old but I am already using the words, “Don’t” and “no”. One major take-away from this article is that God doesn’t keep things from us, He keeps them for us. This is why patience is important in our walk with God, parenting and doing life. Jess encourages us to accept the fact that some prayers we tag ‘unanswered’ or ‘NO’ from God may be for our good. Personally, the beauty of every NO is that they challenge me to seek God’s best in every situation. Enjoy this short article and be blessed!

“We don’t swim in the toilet!” No.

“Don’t feed your breakfast to the dog!” No.

“Don’t eat MY breakfast!” No.

“Don’t pee on the floor!” No.

Whew! You guessed it: these are some commonly overheard phrases in my home. Life with a toddler- what a season! Some days I feel like all I do is utter the word ‘no’ to her in one way or another. It’s a frustration to constantly speak it, but I can, in fact, accurately imagine that it’s frustrating to be on the receiving end of that word as well.

But why do I tell her no, or forbid her from doing things? Is it because I’m a big ol’ bully who just wants to be boss? Of course not. I don’t let her splash in the toilet because, germs. I don’t let her feed the dog because she needs the fuel herself. I don’t let…

Training My 10-Month-Old Infant

Some may argue that my attempts are futile as she cannot understand what I am saying. However does that stop parents from talking to their babies? Isn't it from our talk, describing the world around them and constantly telling them who daddy and mummy is that our baby's first words come from those s/he hears the most. We are already training our babies in so many areas: eating, using a car seat, table manners, talking, walking, biting is bad and so on.

The Joy and Pain of Sleep Training

I don't  know what to call the sleep training method my husband and I have been using since the beginning of the year. The cry-it-out method??!! I am not sure. This is because we don't leave the little one in the room to cry till he falls asleep. His father is always with him. I…
