I have struggled with the sin of comparison on several occasions. I always depend on God’s word to bring me back to my senses. There are several verses in the Bible that remind me of my uniqueness, royal identity, and God’s plan for me. Whether we compare ourselves with others just to feel like we […]
Stay-at-home moms who take their kids EVERYWHERE and working Moms that never get a break, this one is for YOU! I KNOW you are…tired, flustered, question your own sanity, feel like you are surviving most days. We have traded sweats for nice outfits and messy “mom buns” for clean, dry hair…. We eat standing up […]
I looked on in amusement as my daughter slid her cute little right foot into my black ballet flats, and after countless attempts, had her first success! Her foot slid to the front of my shoe and she clack-thudded the width of our master bedroom with surprising grace. How her one foot managed to stay […]
Over the years I have experienced countless ways God has provided for my family. He has provided for us in miraculous ways but also in subtle practical ways. Every time a need has come up in our family, we do what we did…………….
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 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, […]
My Daughter’s Walking Adventure I imagine that like myself, most parents cannot wait for the moment their baby learns or starts to walk independently. My daughter first used her playpen as a safe space to test the limits of gravity as well as practice her pulling up. The moment she could pull herself up at […]
If you spent two hours after dinner bouncing and shush-shush-shushing a fussy swaddled bundle because the books said it would calm him and please Lord you just need the noise to stop—somebody else shushed, too.
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.
My 2 year old is OBSESSED with 2 things- swords and my house shoes.He doesn’t like wearing his shoes… or socks… or the slippers we bought him for Christmas. BUT if my house shoes aren’t on my feet, we all know where to find them. But here’s the problem. They don’t fit him. They weren’t made for […]
I think a lot of moms have been in my shoes. Let’s be honest. There was a time you had to or there will be a time you will have to take your child to the bathroom while you do number 2…except you are Hollywood type of rich or have a 24/7 nanny, family assistance, and husband services.
My heart today is burning for moms who feel defeated. Moms feeling alone. Listen to me… You aren’t supposed to be her, your children aren’t supposed to look exactly like those children…
I have gotten to a point where I clean my phone and hand it over to him when the fight for my phone gets real. He thinks cell phones and everything belongs in the mouth. I am beginning to think he is the second in command after God in our home.
Happy New Year!! Thanks for visiting this blog. Having New Year’s Resolution(s) is a thing most people do yearly. A new year presents us with the opportunity to start afresh, adopt better lifestyles, be better people, and do things better than the previous year. This year, I want to daily keep my eyes focused on […]
Mommas, we are not helpless in this situation. We can do something. We can pray, sign a petition and/or donate to make a difference in Asia Bibi’s case. Asia Bibi’s children have gone to bed for nine years without their mother’s smile or kisses. That’s way too long!
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!
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.
My child is only making baby sounds right now but I must have this in my parenting tool box because he will surely talk. Here is a good read on how parents can handle “talking back”. Perhaps we should call it “feedback” : My husband and I were working on a project around the […]
From parental termination to the celebration of adoption you will cry, laugh, hurt, and cry some more. It will crush your heart to see the pain of a mother walking away while simultaneously planting love as you step in. Don’t allow yourself to judge anyone or any situation. You don’t know as much as you think. If you aren’t sure what to do, do the thing that scares you the most. Hope is a vital part of this process.
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….
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………..
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.
“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!
Some days ago, I came across a video where individuals were told to replace the phrase ‘I have to’ with ‘I get to’. My sense of appreciation for life and motherhood was heightened by the video.
16th September 2018, My husband and I made a special commitment before God in the presence of our friends and family……
Seeing or watching my child serve the living God will be my greatest joy and accomplishment as a mother.
