“In my Neighborhood…” A Child’s Dream.

My 7-year-old daughter is truly becoming a little mini me. This could be good and bad, but I am so proud of her and my other children. They love God. They are determined, kind (most of the time), and always dreaming. The other day while we were watching Curious George on PBS, one of the commercials announced a kids writers contest. As I said, my daughter and I are very much alike. She…

Becoming the Answer in Haymarket, VA. Carried To Full Term.

  Last week I had the pleasure of spending my evening in a home I have come to adore. Carried to Full Term’s Haymarket House is not only an outwardly beautiful house in a quaint little city, it is a house of beauty, joy, second chances, and mercy on the inside. Pregnant mothers over the age of 18 are invited to live in the house and begin a program that helps them adjust…

A Room Full of Differences…LOVE WELL

I HAVE BEEN OVERWEHLEMED the last few weeks, as I have faithfully met with an amazing group of people every Wednesday night. Our paths have crossed because they are seeking a natural childbirth, and I just happen to be certified and able to teach them how to achieve that.

I mean, I feel like I was made for it. But, I have to be honest with you. I did not always feel “made for it.” You know what? I didn’t even want to do it. We…

Between My House and My Mailbox

Every day at about 1:30 pm I step outside my front door, walk over the dirty baseball cleats on my porch, and navigate myself through the landscaped jungle to my mailbox. My big kids are either outside playing or watching a movie on a rainy day. My baby is still singing in her crib to keep herself from napping. With everyone occupied, I go to check the mail. On the sunny days I let…

When God Does the Work for You

Life has been a bit crazy busy lately. A good crazy, but it has left little time for “extracurricular” activities. To be honest, I have enjoyed the pace. The past few months have been productive, intentional, and fulfilling. Yet, last week I hit a wall. I was tired. Life gave me a breather, and I was thankful. Resting, sleeping, and hanging out with my crew at home has been my rhythm. I LOVE…
