Fun with friends last night…God Made YOU!

As my weekend of soccer games is about to start, I am taking a minute to reflect on my night last night. I joined my mommy friends at a MOPs meeting! I was so honored to be the speaker, speaking on “Balancing Being You, A Mom, and A Wife.” I learned so much from the other ladies and left encouraged! The night reminded me of how valuable I really am in the eyes…

8 Keys to Successful Leadership In Your Home

Recently, I have found myself in several new leadership roles. It is exciting but terrifying at the same time. The more I study the scriptures, the more I realize that leadership is not glamorous. Like not at all. When I read about our greatest example of leadership, Jesus, it humbles me to know that leadership is about, going low. It is NOT about being at the top. Regardless of what kind of leadership role I…

Anticipated Season of NEW

Good morning. It is so good to be back on the blog. I missed you! No more boxes in this girl’s life means writing can commence. Yes, every bone in my body is type A. It is so hard for me to function at my best when my house is unorganized! Can anyone relate? The clean house smell is still lingering. I love the “everything is clean” feeling. There is a…

I am a very disciplined person, so I expected this to come easy for me when kids came a long, but boy was I wrong. I have ridden the roller coaster. Just when I would get in a good groove, I would…

Celebrating my journey and the Court’s Decision on June 12, 1967. Praying for my children’s journey and the Court’s decision in June 2015.

When I was a young girl, my family moved repeatedly. I was actually born in the deep south and made my tour around Arkansas and Mississippi. We eventually made our way up through the Carolinas and ultimately landed our ship on the shores of Connecticut where I graduated high school. As much as I loathed the moves in many ways, the move Northward opened my eyes to a life that I would once live and…

What Do You Do That Makes Your Heart Come Alive? Let’s Have a Real Conversation!

What do you do that makes your heart come alive?  This is one of my favorite “get to know you” questions! It is diving deep fast, but I LOVE knowing what people just love to do. What is the that thing that you do, or wish you did, that just ignites your soul? It’s the thing that makes you grin from ear to ear when you talk about it. It is…

Focus On The Things ONLY YOU Can Do

I was sitting on my couch star gazed and tired. My husband looking at me with that “not really sure if you are happy or sad” look in his eyes. Poor guy. Life might be easier for him if his poor wife was not so confusing. Like the sweet husband he is, he sat down beside me and asked, “can I do anything for you?” He at least figured out that…
