I’m so glad you stopped by. I’ve compiled a bunch of posts about motherhood that may be helpful to you.

Keep in mind that I’m only 14 years into my motherhood journey, so I have a limited view. Our home is a work in progress and each person in our family is only human after all – with strengths and weaknesses, joys and sorrows – and in great need of Jesus’ love, forgiveness, and grace. But along the way, I’ve been enriched by God’s guidance, my mom’s wisdom, and wisdom from other people. I’m learning how to love my children… and I love sharing what I learn with you.

I hope you find something up-lifting and helpful here.

I’m cheering you on!
