A much needed vacation

See you on the flip side....

Until next time...

Motherhood is the most rewardingly stressful job in the world. As mothers, we spend most of our day in blissful chaos. We are responsible for shaping our children into the best they can be. That is a responsibility that we should never take lightly. We need to embrace this job that God has given us. These tips can help you be the mom your children need. 

How To Be The Mom Your Children Need

  • Pray for them daily
  • Ask them what they want from you. 
  • Have a Hide-a-way day. (Stay in your pajamas all day and just have some indoor fun)
  • Spend time individually with each of your children
  • Do devotionals together
  • Let them play in the mud
  • Encourage them
  • Show them that people make mistakes (that's why pencils have erasers)
  • Make time for them
  • Put them in groups that will grow their relationship with God
  • Say "I Love You" daily or 2 x a day or 3 (you see where I'm going here?)
  • Show them how to have a servants heart. 
  • Go on vacations together
  • Discipline them separately from their siblings
  • Teach them to love unconditionally
  • Make a home that they want to come back to.

I hope these can inspire you to make your children's lives full of fun, love, acceptance and most importantly The Lord. 

Until next time....

How do you make the memories last?

We had a blast today! It got muddy but the kids had the time of their lives. 

Today made me think about how so many times I get caught up in the craziness of life and forget to stop and enjoy the memories. 

I want to start taking the time to relish in the small moments that mean the most to my sweet kiddies! 

How do you make memories with your kids? I would love to hear some fun ideas since summer is coming up. 

Until next time...

Date your spouse

Remember when you first started dating your spouse? That feeling of excitement and fireworks? Why can't you still have it? 

Let's face it, life gets in the way sometimes. But, there is still no excuse to stop dating your spouse. Whether you have been married 1 year or 50 years. 

Below are a few cheap and last minute dates ideas that The Hubs and I have come up with. 

  1. Go for a walk somewhere new. 
  2. Rent or buy a new movie and watch it at home (they have $5 movies at Wal-Mart)
  3. Get in the car and go get lost
  4. Go tour a open house (never done this but have always wanted to, and pretend you have British voices)
  5. Run an errand together (seriously just the 2 of you it will be fun)
  6. Go bowling
  7. Go the local farmer's market 
  8. Go to Medieval times (2 people get in for the price of one on your birthday)
  9. Go to your local roof top restaurant and play some pool (we did this last night)
  10. Go to the drive-in
  11. Go on a motorcycle ride to some historical sites
  12. Let your hubby pick the date (might be a fun adventure)
What ever it is that you do, the time together is the best part. Do what you love and have some fun!

Until next time....

A Week Of Memories

This past week was a whirl of excitement. 

My 2nd daughter Sophie turned 7 (WOW how did that happen already?)

Then she lost 3 2 days time! 

We had her birthday party on Sunday. 

I am a tired mommy but, it was worth every minute when at the end of the night, Sophie looks at me and says "You're the best mommy ever!". I would say that is a win!

Until next time...

New Season of Motherhood - Part Five

Join me as I start the new season of motherhood! A 5 part series that examines how we, as mothers, can begin to find ourselves, AGAIN!

Part Five - Hold on to your faith

Now I don't want to offend anyone but, my faith is something that grounds me. That is why as I go through my journey in this world I know that my God will always walk me through it. 

That is why through your own journey holding on to your faith is essential. You will keep a sense of peace. When everything is changing around you, your God will be there to hold you still and walk with you on your path. 

So as I wrap up this series remember. Let go of perfection, enjoy the moment, choose joy, reclaim your hobby and hold on to your faith. I pray that all of you find my series helpful.

Until next time...
