Change

Change is essential to growth. As the brisk air blows I can sense it. The climate is changing and so am I. As a mother I’ve been given the incredible opportunity to watch our children grow. Day by day, night after long night. I watch them change a little bit more each day. It isn’t…

Cold Coffee

PINKBLUSH Collaboration Motherhood: A story about coffee getting cold. All Moms laugh at jokes like this because it’s oh so relatable! From the moment I found out we were going to become parents my brain started to swirl with questions! I read all the books on what to expect, pinned my Pinterest boards with mommy…

Transparent

I’ve been scared to let anyone see me but today I hope you see right through me. I’m terrified. I’ve felt my heart thumping in my chest from the moment I felt the Lord nudge me to share. I didn’t want to tell my testimony and share my story. You see, until recently I wasn’t…

Uprooted

Do you feel like you’re just not nailing this whole MOM LIFE thing?! Can I tell you a secret? Me too. Guilty as charged! Can I tell you something else? Conviction is…

Warrior not Worrier

I’ve always been a worrier but after having our second daughter Charlotte I struggled with postpartum anxiety. Fear had taken over. I vividly remember getting ready for a Target run. I packed the diaper bag, loaded up the girls and started the car but when I made it to the stop sign at the edge…

Strength in the Struggle

I might crumble. I gotta be honest. Between buying a new home in OKC, selling our home here in Texas, bringing Everett home from the NICU and doing it all while my husband is hard at work in Oklahoma. It’s a lot to handle and it’s getting harder for me to hold it all together….
