Cheers to new beginnings! Cheers to new adventures! Cheers to a new decade! It is a good day to be alive, and I am thankful you are alive to read this! We are breaking limits this year!
I used to think including people into every part of our family life was a must do. The older I get though, the more this truth becomes clear- I don’t owe anyone the gift, that is, my life. I don’t owe friendship. I don’t owe relationship to others with my children, those things are gifts. […]
This is the miracle of Christmas: 2000+ years ago, God became flesh and dwelled amongst us for 30+ years, and today, he dwells in those who open up their hearts to him. We can celebrate and experience this miracle forever! The miracle of having a personal relationship with God. I pray that you will experience […]
Wow! What a wonderful day to be alive! My joy is full and I am content. Jesus, the reason for the season lives in the heart of every Christian Momma. That is an awesome privilege! May the love, joy, and peace of the Lord rule and reign in your heart and home. My family planned […]
The holiday season is upon us. For many, it’s not the “most wonderful time of the year”, including new single moms. The pain of breakup, no matter how amicable, can feel exponentially greater during the holidays. Especially when you add the fact that, your children will be spending the holidays with their father. How are […]
After a curious Google search, I discovered one of the little one’s daycare caregivers is a lesbian. Honestly, I felt uncomfortable. Why was I feeling uncomfortable that this nice openly homosexual lady was taking care of my little one? For a split second, I thought she would spread this homosexual spirit to my child. That […]
Faith is ridiculous. People will ridicule you for having the audacity to believe God can make an exception for you. The momma who lost her 2 year old daughter does not want to let her daughter go. She has chosen to believe that the God she serves can resurrect her daughter…..
“Sleep in Heavenly peace” is a beautiful melodic phrase taken from the timeless Christmas Carol classic, Silent Night. Baby Jesus, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords slept peacefully in his makeshift crib in a humble stall, while Herod and Jerusalem were troubled about his birth (Matthew 2:3). The fully grown Jesus slept so […]
Christmas songs make this season merrier. Haaa! They warm my heart. I currently do not have a favorite Christmas song. However, I always look forward to singing” Baby it’s cold outside” whenever it snows. Do you have a favorite Christmas song?
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.
Gesturing and saying “mine, mine, mine” have become the little one’s thing for a while. He is declaring his independence and making demands already?! He came to the world naked with no clothes, shoes, food, toys, etc. Then suddenly, he is saying “mine” to access whatever he wants without differentiating between what belongs or does […]
This was not the post I planned to publish today, but this is where I found myself few hours ago as a mother. I felt like screaming and crying after spending almost 3 hours trying to put the little one to sleep. I had a paper to write with little time to spare. Spouse traveled […]
There is something interesting about the women/mothers mentioned in the genealogy of Jesus Christ. Tamar disguised as a prostitute to have sex with her father-in-law, Rahab was a prostitute, Ruth was a Moabite (a descendant of an incestuous relationship between Lot and his older daughter), Uriah’s wife (nameless in the genealogy, her husband was killed […]
It is interesting that I started writing this post on the 14th of May, 2019, and I am finally posting it almost seven months later. I wonder if there are other bloggers with a lot of drafted posts containing one or two sentences waiting to be completed. I am excited to complete this post today […]
Have you ever found yourself thinking or saying, “I don’t owe anybody anything “? I have. The Bible says you and I owe something. We owe humanity the gift of love. Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbor, you will fulfill the requirements of God’s law. […]
There are millions of ways to help a foster family, but you know what all of those apply to people in every situation. The woman down the road that just had surgery, the man who lost his wife, and the new momma. I believe the most important thing you can do to support a foster family or any family is to……
My life would have been different if my grandfather and aunt did not give me the gift of opportunity. That is what children in institutions need, an opportunity to be a child, have a family, to be loved and have somewhere they too can call home…..
Two days ago, My dear sister, kim Petitt shared her personal experience as a mother raising a Black son in the 21st Century. Please read her short post HERE. We can’t trust our governments to protect our children. They are failing every child regardless of race. While some local churches are speaking up through the […]
The goal of this post isn’t to condemn Christians who celebrate Halloween. My intention is to help Mommas/parents who don’t want their family to participate in Halloween or don’t know if it’s okay to join the celebration. We spread love and truth on this blog. This book is available on Amazon. It helped me understand […]
A young person asked me recently what is was like to adopt a child, “is it different?” That question got me to thinking just how similar adoption is to marriage. One day I didn’t know my husband, the next I did. A unique encounter that set us on this path of connection. We don’t have […]
The perfect marriage is the united relationship between an imperfect man and an imperfect woman serving a perfect God. This man and woman are after God’s heart despite their flaws. They work on their flaws while celebrating the beauty and uniqueness of each other. They forgive each other daily and do each other good everyday […]
If God has called you to the awesome stay-at-home mom life; enjoy the season, grow in faith, build your home, give it your all, see it as a privilege to fully give yourself to your family, and don’t get caught up in comparison……
“Bye, I will see you on …………”, that’s what I tell my clients at the end of every session. Sometimes, I don’t get to keep those words because they are not a hundred percent mine to make happen. In August, I had a week of forced rest. I was too sick to work. I couldn’t […]
For two years, my husband and I have been intentionally sowing seeds of affirmation in our girls. One of our adopted little girls had so much hurt even as a baby she wouldn’t look at herself in the mirror without crying. It was heartbreaking and something we absolutely refused to receive as ours, so we […]
The little one says thank you before and after he gets anything. I believe he thinks saying ‘thank you’ will get him anything. I am not surprised that the little one says thank you a lot. After-all, mommy and daddy say ‘thank you’ a lot. Thank you is not just a polite expression. It is […]
