So, I definitely hijacked this blog post idea from Chelsea's post on her blog, A Lunderful Life. When I saw her post, I immediately fell in love with her and her beautiful family + I knew I wanted to do a similar post for Malik! A few differences though because Chelsea is a first time mom...

I've written about the chaos, and it's easy to let the chaos take over all that goes well.. I want to never get stuck in thinking about the chaotic things and focus on the good. I did feel compelled to share a little of my chaos because it is easy to think that someone else's... Continue Reading →

Hills and valleys. High and lows... I've felt led to post on this. I'm not sure why, but hopefully someone reads this and finds some peace. This topic was the focus point during a sermon at church awhile back and then that week while I was doing Hannah Brencher's bible study, First Be A Follower, the... Continue Reading →

This early morning situation gave me a lot of time to think and got me thinking of things I have learned being a mom... here's five things I came up with: 1. The Wonder Weeks App is the bomb. It wasn't until I had my second child and a friend of mine, who just had her first child, introduced me to this app. 2. Awareness. No one points out all your bad habits quicker than your children. I've always heard the phrase, "kids are like sponges" but never appreciated it until I had children of my own.
Have a boy and everyone asks you when you're trying for his sister. Have two boys and everyone says third times a charm. Three boys later and everyone says you HAVE to try just one more time! The pressure is real y'all. I just can't win. Wait, scratch that I am winning. Yea, sure me... Continue Reading →

I've recently been trying to dig deep into my bible studies and relationship with the Lord. In this moment, this is one of my favorite bible... Continue Reading →
I almost lost my middle child at the zoo. Let me paint the scene here for you. This was a free event with free stuff. So yes, everybody and their mommas were there. I'm talking packed. And if you know my middle child or me well enough, you know he is my "wild child". And this day, he was off the chain. He was constantly running off and not listening to me, maybe it was the dipping dots? HAH!
