You Aren’t Enough

“You are enough.” I see this everywhere and as a mom, it really just irks me. I know that’s the opposite of the intended effect. It’s supposed to encourage me, but—and maybe this is just me—it makes me feel so condescended to and very very frustrated. I live with me, oh valiant mom influencers with […]

And if not… He is still good

I know there was no rational reason to think I was actually pregnant. With some extenuating medical circumstance, the chances of us getting naturally pregnant are 1 out of 1,000.

Heart of the Homemaker

“How does a homemaker care for her heart, so that she can maintain her home with a life-giving rhythm?” So read the writing prompt from The Homemaker’s Club Instagram page I enjoy. I immediately thought of a Bible verse I had drilled into me as a kid in the Kingdom Seekers girls’ group. “How can […]

A Question for the Moms

Okay, moms, I’m about to become one of you, so I think you can let me in on the secret. When do the superpowers kick in?  Don’t act like you don’t know. You totally have superpowers. When will I get that ability to find literally anything? I get frustrated trying to find information online, never […]
