A confident expectation

April 30th was a one year anniversary of the start of the biggest trial of our lives. The news we received that day was so dark, so absurd, and shattering. It’s been one year and our lives are forever changed and so different now. Betrayal was a word that I thought I was familiar with…

City Farming across from QuikTrip

Chickens are addicting. Now I’m not just referring to chicken tenders from Chicken Express, I’m talking real live chickens. My husband and I were blessed with a rental property of an acre where the landlord let us get animals on the land. The funniest part is we are in the busiest part of our city…

That Girl

Reflecting on the teen years in high school, we can all remember that girl. You know, that girl that always needed a boyfriend, validation from a guy, and would flirt with your crush because she always desired to be desired. Yep, you know that girl. Especially if you were best friends with that girl and…

Word of the year

One of my favorite things about the new year is it always feels like a refresh. Even though it is really no different than another day, another week, another month, it still has the empowering effect on every person to re-create themselves or make new goals or finally do what they’ve been aspiring to do….

A little lie here and there

One of the best snippets of advice I have ever received in life was “honey, if a boy can lie to his mom, his first woman to ever love, than what makes you think he won’t ever lie to you?” Let me give you some back story to how I got this advice. I did…

What’s your worship?

This morning on my way to work I listened to a sermon from Life.Church about True Worshippers. It really got my mind moving. The message was clearly about how we worship the Lord and he used an example of different types of worship we do and aren’t even aware we doing. Look at our behavior…

This mom says no more…

I despise homework. Not just homework I used to have in general, but my child’s homework. I did not like homework growing up, and I most definitely hate it even more as a parent. Yes, I said hate. Because I’m ok with homework dying and never returning. Homework is not just work for the child…

Never too far gone…

Yesterday my husband taught the Sunday School lesson. Seriously there is no prouder moment for me as a wife than seeing my husband preach the word of God as eloquent as he does. His voice is strong and it carries across the room. His posture is always upright, and I already think he’s incredibly good…

Going on 17 years…

I’ve been a Patriots fan since 2000, when I first really learned about football. I remember I would play NFL blitz on my ps one and I learned so much about football. Patriots were my team. I’d always win when I played them. Then in 2001 when they went to the Super Bowl and won,…

Missing the memo

So the big march is happening today. It’s pretty incredible to see a lot of people all over join together for something their passionate about and be mostly peaceful. I’m just one of the rare amount of people that don’t really understand what results they are expecting from it? Maybe I missed the memo but…

Blogger blogging about other bloggers’ blogs.

Is this thing on? I don’t write because I expect anyone to actually read them. I would totally love for people to read my posts. But I write because it’s relaxing for me. I love getting lost in writing and sometimes I learn more about myself when I am writing. But I’ve noticed I’ve hardly…

Busy Bee, busy me…

I’m one of those people who love to be busy. I honestly feel like a part of me is dying if I don’t have anything to do. It sometimes can depress me. I’m weird like that. You know what my favorite type of work is? I love working in the restaurant industry! I’m one of…
