Tidal Rest: Finding Rest In The Phase You’re In

Rest was my word for the year, however if I were to judge myself on progress, I am failing at this rest business pretty badly. I knew it wouldn’t be easy. Sure I have read books about rest, taken a few naps, and stressed over not resting on the Sabbath, but overall not getting anywhere solid. Since March this Mama… Continue reading Tidal Rest: Finding Rest In The Phase You’re In

My 2017 Word – A Quest for Real Rest

If there is one thing most Mamas can universally agree upon, it is that they are tired. We can argue about breastfeeding vs bottle feeding, homeschool vs public school, electronics vs the real world or co-sleeping vs independent sleeping all day long but you bring up tired and everyone just nods their heads in understanding.… Continue reading My 2017 Word – A Quest for Real Rest

Becoming An Unlikely Feminist: Empowered To Serve Others

I’ve never thought of myself as a feminist until recently. My entire life the word itself felt like a curse word, it had always left such a bad taste in my mouth. Feminism. EW! In my generation it can be an excuse for all kinds of sin & selfishness all in the name of being a woman, therefore I had written it… Continue reading Becoming An Unlikely Feminist: Empowered To Serve Others

Surviving To Thriving: My Stay At Home Mom Summer

Last week I had my four kids in the backseat, the lake breeze rolling off the water drifting into our van windows as we listened to music, the beach toys hardly had time to shake the sand from our previous trip just two days before and we were already back for more fun with friends at the beach. When… Continue reading Surviving To Thriving: My Stay At Home Mom Summer

7 Habits For A Fearless Homeschool Mom Life

It’s the lazy part of my human nature that tells me there is a secret formula I can follow for perfection in motherhood and my homeschool. Unfortunately for most(all) of us, that simply isn’t the case. We strive for perfection, yet God doesn’t call us to that. He calls us to rely on Him in… Continue reading 7 Habits For A Fearless Homeschool Mom Life

Daring Mom Guilt To Become Fulfilling Motherhood

When you’re in the trenches it’s easy to write off what you feel powerless to stop. From babies, toddlers, kiddos to teens we will find ourselves at many moments of conviction when we roll our eyes at ourselves, write it off as “Mom guilt!” and grab the closest piece of chocolate we can find. I have felt these points of… Continue reading Daring Mom Guilt To Become Fulfilling Motherhood

Standing Fearless: When Kindness Takes Courage

My word for this year is Fearless. What does this mean? Sometimes it’s more than being a Fearless Mama Bear, taking a brave adventure or starting a new phase of life you are unsure you are ready for.

Please Stop Blaming My Child’s Personality On Homeschooling

As a young child I was bullied nearly everywhere I went, even as a young tween in youth group I was the one people snickered at even when I said nothing at all. For a long time I thought I would be hated my entire life and I had no idea why. It would take me years to realize the… Continue reading Please Stop Blaming My Child’s Personality On Homeschooling
