I grew up in the way most white people do from small towns. Our family lived a simple life not dirt poor, but sort of at the bottom of middle class when true middle class existed. My dad worked a blue collar job and my mom had two teaching jobs to put my sister through… Continue reading My Privilege
I've had a few requests to start posting my budget shopping list and meal plans again now that money is tight and we are all at home more. Since I am not shopping regularly and I am sort of at the mercy of what is in the store I am going to post my weekly… Continue reading Pantry Dinners April 12-18
This photo has nothing to do with the post, but it is calming and pretty and I think we can all use that in our lives at the moment. After graduation I was a little lost for what to do with myself. I knew I was supposed to be relaxing but I didn't relax in… Continue reading Here we go again…
Big hugs and fist bumps to all my kids! I love you and miss you like crazy! I've put a bunch of links down below for some children's church fun. But first a little prayer for us all...

In this time of bustle and hurry, I have been playing this Advent Affirmation we were introduced to at church on repeat. It is a great reminder to slow down and enjoy the wait. To enjoy the small things, the everyday things, the ordinary things. It is a reminder to slow down and remember why… Continue reading Enjoying the wait

When fear grips me tight and I feel I cannot move, Free my heart and help me to take things one step at a time. When I can’t express the turmoil inside, Calm me with… Continue reading A Prayer for Confronting Fear
Are you met with grunts after school when you ask what did you do today? I have been lately. I don't know whether it is because I no longer have the little girls in this photo, they are all grown up and in the teenage years...but since I have been asking different questions I have… Continue reading How was your day? What did you do?
