“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you” (Ephesians 5:14) How much more will it take before the Church wakes up and open her mouth? What kind of a future are we preparing for our children? Every time I pray about all that is happening in the world right now, […]

Please share your thoughts on prenatal yoga and yoga generally.

Yesterday, I wrote about how this season has shifted our focus back to what matters, God and family. Please check the post here. As I reflected further, it began to click even more that this season is a wake up call for the body of Christ. We have gone the ways of the world, tolerating […]
WE SHOULD NOT COMPARE OUR CHILD WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S CHILDREN. NEITHER SHOULD WE COMPARE OUR CHILDREN WITH EACH OTHER. EVERY CHILD IS SPECIAL. EVERY CHILD IS DESTINED FOR GREATNESS. THE JOB OF A PARENT IS TO NURTURE A CHILD’S DREAM AND BRING OUT THE BEST IN A CHILD. MAXIMIZE THE STRENGTHS OF YOUR CHILD. MARY […]
In seasons of discomfort, it is psychologically difficult to see the big picture….
“Mommy, Mommy, Mommy“…It sounds so good in my ears. May I never lose this excitement. I was told that hearing mommy repeatedly for 20 seconds gets on mommy’s nerves later on in life. Well, I will cherish this moment and hope it does not get on my nerves later on in life. I am still […]
Dear friends, please join the prayer chain. Thank you. Update 12/22/19: We will see Little Olive in heaven. Thank you for praying for this family. God bless you. While God doesn’t need thousands of people to answer a prayer, we are called to pray for one another and stand in unity.
The beauty of being a Christian mom is that I serve a God who loves my child more than I do. I serve a God who heals and I can trust this God for my child’s healing when the enemy comes in like a flood. The greatest physician is the Lord of my home…
When I had my babies, one of the hardest things for me as a mother was when they began to fall sick. By God’s grace, my children are healthy. But when they do fall sick, it often brings to my mind parents of children with serious life threatening illnesses, and disabilities, and my heartbreaks for them. The pain they go through as parents is something My God knows all too well….

I am a wife and mother of 2 wonderful boys: a 3 year old and an 11 month old. It has taken me 4 years to say that with dignity and gratitude. 4 years of repenting, cleansing, molding before the Lord, to truly own up that role of a stay at home mother. 4 years […]
I grew up being a perfectionist, often times to avoid criticism from within the family. As an adult it carried over to my everyday life. Its caused problems in my workplace and relationships. Which carried over into areas of uncertainty in the form of self-doubt. I sought out affirmations from everyone and anyone…..
I had a dream last night that I feel impressed to share. In my dream I was walking around the city. With each store I passed, my mind was being invaded with thoughts. Thoughts of hopelessness, disappointment, anxiety, insecurity, there wasn’t anything off limits. My mind was filled with thoughts of death, thoughts of affair, […]
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 […]

Mary watched people turn against her son. She could not defend her child. She must have heard of Judas’ betrayal, Simon’s denial, and the disciples’ abandonment. What a pain!

“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…
