I am an advocate for self-improvement and self-care. This is no secret. I recently got my tail back to the gym and I felt better. I got one of those Fitbit things, I have walked more miles than I ever have in my life, and I am tracking my macros like they're a tropical storm. … Continue reading Fitbit
I have a scar from a recent trauma. My entire family does. I have struggled as a Christian. I have delighted in every misfortune that the perpetrator has faced since the attack that was unleashed on my family. I have laughed every time they lost. That is so not who I am.

I spent the last weekend at the beach with my best friend. It was the perfect girl's trip and I laughed and relaxed. There was no one to care for or chaos to manage.

I often find myself struggling to promote myself in a way that enables my dreams to come true. I try things other people have tried. I see women … Continue reading Reddit Kicked My Butt
Last night Ryder shut his hand in the car door. Do not ask me how he managed to do that. I just know that his little shriek will haunt my heart for years to come. Cue the Mom Guilt. I should've operated the car door. Let's face it. We cannot protect them from everything. Sometimes … Continue reading The ER
A few months ago, the kids were playing outside. My husband and I tell the little ones all the time to wear shoes outside, but they do not always keep their shoes on when they finally get out there. Oh, the struggles of owning a trampoline. Robert and I often find random socks and shoes … Continue reading The Bigger Picture
I don't know about you, but I am the kind of woman who loves to overthink things. Was that right? Why didn't I say that? Am I really doing what I was called to do? Am I worthy? Should I be here? My thoughts have sub-thoughts and even my sub-thoughts have sub-thoughts. My wheels will … Continue reading Am I Getting Warmer?
