A Little Bit of My Story

Who We AreHave you ever wondered how in the world my family and I ended up halfway around the world from home?

Do you ever wonder why I started writing?

Well today, dear friend, you’re in luck because all your questions will be answered! Well, maybe not all, but I’m telling a little bit of my story over at The Better Mom. Our June series over there is Who We Are. It’s a chance for all of us who contribute there to share a bit about who we are – and hopefully learn a bit about who you are, too!

When Beauty Takes You By Surprise

Have you ever been to a particular place upteenmillion times, and on the upteenmillionandfirst time you go, you notice something absolutely amazing? Something that had been there the whole time but you had been so immersed in you own stuff you had never seen it?Look-Up-768x1024

I had one such experience recently and it was such a good and valuable reminder for me, I just had to share it with you.

Join me today at The Better Mom as I remind us all to take time everyday to look up!

If you’ve just joined us here from The Better Mom, welcome!! I’m so glad you’ve come over to hang out for a little while. Grab your favorite culpa (if it happens to be a half-price Cherry Limeade from Sonic, please to tell me because I can’t get those here), make yourself at home and look around.

Parenting, Transition, and Working Without a Net

It seems as though much of what we hear about in Christian circles these days is balance. Balance in our homes, balance in our Spiritual lives, balance in our health.

I’m over at The Better Mom today addressing what we can do in times when balance is just not possible – to keep things from spiraling too far out of orbit. I do hope you’ll join me there!

If you’ve just landed here from The Better Mom, I want to extend a warm, spring Viennese welcome to you! Grab your cafe latte, pull up a chair and make yourself at home!

This post is part of the Time Out: Finding Balance as a Busy Mom series.

Unexpected Life Lessons from A Foot

Have you ever had a God speak to you so clearly there was no doubt it was His voice you were hearing?

Has He ever used a totally random, completely unlikely source through which to do it?20140315-205406.jpg

How about a pair of water-wrinkled feet with chipped nail polish?? Join me at The Better Mom today as I share How An Old, Chipped Pedicure Made Me a Better Mom!

What unlikely ways has God spoken to you?

If you’ve just clicked over from The Better Mom, I want to extend a warm welcome to you. I do hope you’ll stay awhile and make yourself at home!

Do you need a time out?

When Mom Needs A Time OutHey there, fellow moms. Have you ever put your kids in a time out when either their behavior or attitude wasn’t matching up to your expectations? Or what you knew they were capable of?

How about yourself? Have you ever felt the tensions rising, temper shortening in your own heart? Have you ever put yourself in a time out?

Join me at The Better Mom today as I talk about what we can do When MOM Needs A Time Out.

If you’ve just clicked over from a The Better Mom, I want to welcome you! If you were in my living room, I’d hand you a nice, hot cuppa and fresh-baked biscuit. Feel free to make yourself at home and have a look around!
