You know those times they fall and get an owie? It's a REALLY BAD owie? The kind that only your kisses can fix?? Those are the best. Sometimes the best solution for tears are kisses.

It's truly the BEST medicine. ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy Motherhood"! I will post bits of encouragement for moms everyday throughout the … [Read more...]

i’m just getting started {an #influenceconf linkup!}

As I sat in a room full of 200 amazing, inspiring and completely breathtakingly beautiful women I felt so out of my league. What am I doing here God?? How are you going to use ME?? Little me who tends to blog more about poop than Jesus. Who has dark circles under her eyes and still probably smelled like a dirty diaper. I'm "just" a mommy blogger. I don't have a story. When I think I'm done, or my story means nothing He gently whispers in my ear "I'm just getting started with you". Oh … [Read more...]

Day-17

I needed this today. Yesterday was a lose-my-patience-cry-with-my-kids kind of day. Some days are just much harder than others. I'm in the midst of a tough journey with my 2 year old. She whines, she yells at her sister and is struggling to handle her emotions. It makes for a LOT of crying and a TON of emotions flying through my house. Moral of the story? Everyone makes mistakes. It's how you pick up and move on from the mistakes that is important. You may yell at your kids and get frustrated, … [Read more...]

I started out the weekend at Influence Conference sitting in the back of the room at Emily Freeman's talk. I have always adored Emily, but wasn't sure what to expect walking in to my first blogging conference. It couldn't have been a more perfect place for me in that moment.Β Emily smacked me in the face with such inspiration and truth, my fingers could barely keep up with my brain as I frantically typed out notes to try to remember as much as I could. "Our influence is wrapped up in what makes … [Read more...]

And sometimes those are the BEST days. We will go days at a time without getting out of our pjs and I love it! Sometimes it's those snuggly, stay inside kind of days that end up being the most fun. Don't think that you always HAVE to do something fun everyday. You don't. Embrace the pjs. Embrace the snuggles. ---- Follow along with my "31 Days of Messy Motherhood"!

I'm sitting here trying to wrap my mind around this past weekend. How my world was rocked. I attended a blogging conference. But not just any blogging conference. This wasn't your "learn about SEO and network" type of event. Yes, I walked away with a LOT of great information, but I also walked alway with my heart completely overflowing. I loved and was loved. I saw JESUS in the faces of each the women I met.Β  And their hearts were exploding with the good news. About 6 months ago I was … [Read more...]

Day-15

Never EVER think you are doing this thing alone. There is always someone that gets it. That has been there. That IS there. Someone knows. Changing diapers and making corndogs on 2 hours of sleep is not an easy task, but there is always someone else doing it too. Don't be afraid to ask for help, to pour your heart out to another mama. We get it. We know. Never let it get it too far, or let yourself think that you can't do it. You can.Β  You are NOT alone in this journey. Allow someone to come … [Read more...]
