We often say “family comes first”. Yet, we find it hard to put it into practice. Sometimes, we find ourselves having to choose between work and family. Parenting makes choosing between career and family more complex. The time change or daylight savings exercabated the guilt I feel each time I pick up the little one […]

Colossians 4:2 NLT, “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.” Yesterday I had to go visit the GYN for my annual exam. It’s a very busy place, so when I go, I always know that I’ll be waiting at least an hour before…
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 […]
These days I can be found jamming to nursery rhymes. The little one enjoys watching me jump and twirl while playing nursery rhymes. Those songs are addictive but thankfully there is a lot to learn from them. Apparently, “This little piggy” has controversial interpretations but let’s stick with the happier one. The interpretation everyone grew […]

Hey friends, how are you today? It has been raining since Sunday.??The Lord and I talked about that, this morning.??Of course, He already knew, but I thought I would just remind Him that it has been dark, gloomy, dreary and rainy since Sunday.??I said I would be most grateful…
Happy Mother’s day to the waiting moms, single moms, foster moms, belly moms, spiritual moms and future mommas. You are worthy of daily celebration because your love is selflessness and enduring. There is a lot to reflect on as I celebrate my first mother’s day with a child I birth through pain, sweat, joy, and […]
Today I celebrate moms. The ones fostering, adopting, birthing.. the ones who have lost, the ones who chose life, the ones who are still waiting. All of us deserve to be celebrated.
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 […]
Hey Diddle Diddle is one of my favorite Nursery Rhymes. Perhaps, I am drawn to it’s simple and illogical content. My favorite lines are “The cow jumped over the moon” and “The dish ran away with the spoon”. In my perspective, the lyrics of this nursery rhyme reveals the faith-filled and oh what possibilities mind […]
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!
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 […]
When I realized joining the military was something, my son wanted for his own life, I began to relax and God was then able to work on my heart. It was revealed to me in my time with God that I was perhaps praying against God’s will for my son’s life.
God has a humorous way of showing us He cares. My prayer is that my testimony will encourage you to trust God with your life and open your eyes to this truth, You Matter To God! And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to […]
“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…
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.
Brain regions that respond more strongly to the mother’s voice extend beyond auditory areas to include those involved in emotion and reward processing, social functions, detection of what is personally relevant and face recognition.
I have been intentional to guard my children from any word spoken against them, and yet in that moment I was the one speaking negative. I know that this is easily a situation where you can get hyper “religious” but for me it was eye opening.
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.
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 […]
Wow! It’s the third month of the year already and the last day of the 5 days of prayer for my children challenge. Day 5 of the reading plan encourages us to study our children. This will help us pray uniquely or specifically for each child and build a good parent-child relationship. We are wrapping […]
Today’s message is titled “fight for your family”. You can listen to the entire message here and watch a short clip below. I love this. It got me fired up! Stay blessed!
Day 3 of the reading plan reminds us our children are gifts from God and that’s one reason for us to celebrate our children. The plan encourages us to model gratitude, be grateful for our children and express our gratitude for the opportunity to be parents. Emphasis on Psalm 127:3-5. With reference to yesterday’s blog, […]

I’m assuming my kids are no different and share a common enthusiasm with other like-minded boys and girls—the electronic obsession!!?? These kids of mine would eat, drink, and sleep electronics if my husband and I allowed it, but thankfully for the sake of healthy living we’ve put a cap…
