Fighting Diaper Change

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,…

They Hear God

Early in March, we visited grandma. After spending the day and saying a 10 minute emotional goodbye, we finally got the kids in the car. One child was having an exceptionally hard night and acting in an unusual way. We decided to take a few minutes and everyone in the car had to say one…

Off to Daycare

Today, we left our little one in the care of people we don't know. It takes a lot of faith and courage to do that. Please don't judge parents for enrolling their babies in daycare, it's not an easy thing to do. For me, faith in God made leaving the little one in daycare bearable.…

This Day Last Year: Supernatural Birth Story

I must confess that I once thought that I didn't have the supernatural birth experience I desperately desired. I forgot that the birth of a healthy whole baby via a successful C-Section was in fact supernatural. This day last year was the scariest day of my life so far. Mentally preparing for an unplanned C-section…

Four Strategies For Dealing With Chaos

Each of us have different levels of tolerance and I believe this also applies in our ability to handle "chaos" that may occur in form of a messy house, piled up laundry, other housekeeping problems, and work-family conflict. I assume that in less than a year into parenting some mamas have their house operating as…

Greater Works than Jesus?

As I do this thing called parenting, every doubt about God's will for me to live the best life is being erased. Haaaaa, it's so wonderful! One of my deepest desires is that my children will be greater than I would ever be. That they will achieve a lot more than I ever could and…

You are NOT Alone

Clothes piled up, toys everywhere, and little people running in and out of the photo. I know life is really never “perfect”, but something about this season for our family makes me see “perfect” differently. I have had the privilege of speaking to several foster moms who are ready to throw in the towel and…

Bringing a Smile to Mommy’s Face

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…

Becoming HIS Tapestry

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 for a sunny, 70° Tuesday, instead of a rainy, 42° one, but He said, “Look up, child”.

‘still cloudy, Lord, but I will be thankful in spite of the clouds”

So, I did, and I said, ‘thank you, Lord for the rain.I will wear my boots instead of my opened toes heels and my umbrella and I’m sure it will be a good day. I will be thankful, it isn’t snowing.What’s the weather like, in your neck of the woods?

Did you know kids are a gift from God Almighty Himself? In spite of the circumstances surrounding their birth; all kids…

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…


“Mom, I am so glad you adopted me. We all fit together so perfectly. ” My biological son has no idea that he isn’t adopted. In his mind adoption means you were added to our family and that addition can happen through delivery or the front door. In a culture where words like biological and…


Unplanned is next on my “to watch” list. I enjoyed reading this review by Anne and Brooke. I encourage every mom to check out this amazing blog for teen girls. To call abortion a human right is to classify the unborn as not human or non-living things. Mommas, let’s raise or voices and do something about the unjust killing of babies.

“I Knew You Before I Formed You In Your Mother’s Womb, Before You Were Born I Set You Apart.” ~Jeremiah 1:5 NLT

The Pureflix film, just newly released March 29 of this year, is the true story of Abbey Johnson, the youngest director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas.

Even after working for Planned Parenthood for over 8 years, Abbey had never actually seen an abortion procedure, even though she had had two of her own. Until this particular time where she was asked to assist in an ultrasound guided abortion.

Abbey administered the ultrasound, as instructed by the abortionist doctor, only to be horrified as the tiny baby on the screen was ripped from it’s mother’s womb, despite the baby’s weak efforts to fight for it 13 week old life.

This is Abbey’s story of her gullible belief that abortion was a woman’s right because a baby wasn’t…

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.

Black History Celebration: Beauty in Our Differences

I, without thinking grabbed a dark brown crayon and started coloring the girl's skin. Without skipping a beat, the little boy asked me why I would use that ugly brown color because my real skin was so nice and white. I didn't know if I wanted to cry or hug him more in that moment.
