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.

Contentment and Joy

It’s Monday, which means I’m once again following a prompt from The Homemaker’s Club. This week’s was, “How does a homemaker maintain a joyful heart, so that she may seek beauty in the small and humble acts of homemaking?” How does a homemaker maintain a joyful heart? Gosh, I wish I knew! I’ll be 100% […]
