Book recommendation

I just read the book The Brave Art of Motherhood by Rachel Marie Martin. I had the blessed opportunity to be selected as a part of the Book Launch team. I’ve posted my review to goodreads and would definitely recommend it to any mother who doesn’t have enough me time. Or feels like their failing….

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…
