Boundaries on Social Media

Last Monday, I was talking to my therapist about the recent upset caused by my investigative opinion article on gorilla care as a Christian. As someone who rarely follows the news, 1) I had no idea this subject had been so controversial or done to death. This put me in the unfortunate place of speaking to [Read More…]

Psalm 118:28-29

17. A good nights sleep. 18. A fantastic sermon. 19. Good Kokomo mocha. 20. SUNSHINE!! 21. Sleepy 4-year-olds. 22. Pizza. 23. Boots to wear with your sundress because your dog ate all your flip flops.   24. For not caring that the boots don’t match. 25. For my dog, Max. 26. For messy houses, and [Read More…]


I’m ok. Honestly. I spent all day hanging out with my family, we went to a food truck for lunch. The girls have been begging me to try one since they started watching Food Truck Wars. We went to the hardware store. We came home and I napped and then Ben and I worked outside. [Read More…]

Thinking About Social Media

Today has been rough. My kids got up before 5:30 this morning, so I did, except I went to bed much later, crying. People can be ruthless on the internet. It doesn’t bother me when people who I don’t know take a swing at me, but the people I do know, like really thought I [Read More…]


I love picking titles! So much fun! This morning, I took the boundaries quiz on the Boundaries Book website. I know that I have trouble upholding my personal boundaries. So I took the quiz and…… I got a lousy 4!  A 15-20 would have been ideal. Apparently, I have a lot of work to do! But [Read More…]

Psalm 9:1

For accidentally sleeping through my alarm and it not being a huge inconvenience. For last night’s nightmares not being real. For a working fridge, garbage bags to clean it out and cleaner to wipe it down. That I don’t throw up anymore when I clean the fridge. #HGaware For brooms that sweep the crumbs away. [Read More…]

Trump Supports the Murder of Harambe

“If you could choose between bliss in life or bliss in death, which one would you pick?  “If four people are stranded in a snowstorm starving, which person do you kill?”  “If a boy falls into a gorilla habitat, do you save the boy or shoot the gorilla?” To me, the answers to these questions come [Read More…]

Laughing at Monday

Here we go again, a new week is upon us. For me, that means driving my kids to school, doctor visits, and gymnastics. It means more laundry, more dishes, more cooking and cleaning and therapy and reading my Bible. It means finding time to be alone with my favorite guy- all the while trying to [Read More…]

Don’t Be That Guy

Ah, yes. We knew it was going to happen. Zealous Christians treating bathroom drama with fire and brimstone. It really is a grand time to be a post-millennial. As these videos demonstrate, this kind of premeditated tantrum is not the best way to open the eyes of the hurt and needy to Christ’s mercy and [Read More…]

HG Made Me a Better Mom

I know I talk a lot about HG. Particularly here, here, and here. But, you have to understand, having Hyperemesis Gravidarum changed my life. It changed me. Even before I got that first positive pregnancy test, I had so many ideas about what I wanted my pregnancy, labor and delivery to be like. I was excited [Read More…]
