Jeremiah,

This week you turned 3. I have yet to write your birth story down. Part of that is life with two can get away with you, but the truth is your birth was painful. It was hard. Mommy still cries when she talks about it. And that’s ok. I hope I always do. Your gre...

In my last post we talked about the importance of creating a home where our entire family thrives. How the tasks of our everyday life stem from a heart to love and serve those closest to us. Our to-do list looks less like drudgery and more like cultivation.

Pinterest is a beautiful place. There are gorgeous pictures, tons of ideas. It is amazing how quick a couple minutes can turn into 30 so easily. It is nice having a one stop shop to gather anything from decorating ideas to recipes to birthday party plans. As the pins s...

It was another morning where I didn’t wake up exactly 30 minutes prior to my 6 month old. I wanted to get back into reading my Bible, spending time with God. My thoughts started coming fast, You failed again Marie. How are you going to instill Bible reading to your chi...
