The Sacrifices Mothers Make …

Jones Onigbinde - Great Mother Heart ... Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching, but just for a moment let’s forget about the cards and flowers and hastily purchased presents and think about what Mother’s Day really means. About what your mother has really meant in your life, how much she has shaped the person you are today. As we prepare to celebrate another Mother’s Day, take a moment to step back and ponder [...]

One Mom’s Faith Journey

Certain thoughts are prayers. There are moments when, whatever be the attitude of the body, the soul is on its knees.  -Victor Hugo I saw this quote years ago and it has stuck with me. Faith and prayer are hard topics for me to talk and write about. Not because I don’t have thoughts about them – because I have plenty! – but because it can just be a hard thing to articulate. Sometimes faith is [...]

Why, why, why?

Kids are curious. It’s one of the most entertaining and frustrating things about raising them. When my son was little he asked questions about everything. Some days it felt like he asked about 3,295 questions a day. When he was about four, he started asking so many funny questions that I eventually started keeping a list of some of the funniest things he asked: [After asking what our driveway is made out of] “Well, [...]

But because moms are rock stars, we all make it work. It always interests me how other moms actually make it work every day. So let’s take a sneak peek! I’ve documented a pretty typical day in the life of my [...]

Devotions for Mothers

Some days I feel like I’m in the trenches of motherhood. It’s the days where I have seven loads of laundry to do, the floor is caked with dirt, I forgot the field trip form again, and I have about 1.5 hours of free time in the next week to get it done. On those days I sometimes feel a bit alone, overwhelmed, and in need of some encouragement. On overwhelming days there are [...]

Moms Need Support, Too

Most parents would say that having kids is incredibly rewarding and brings them happiness. Mothers especially take a lot of pride and draw their identity from being a mom. So if parenting is so great, why does it feel so stressful sometimes? A 2016 study actually found that parents in the U.S. have a “happiness shortfall” when compared to adults who don’t have kids or even parents in other countries. Researchers were able to [...]

Seven Apps to Make Mom’s Life Easier

Technology has changed our lives in so many ways. It has made it easier to connect with the people we care about, to find information, to read and watch TV, and play games. Parenting is no exception! We’ve heard many grandparents say that they’re jealous of all the technology available to parents today. So while of course it’s important to set limits and monitor your children’s “screen time,” it’s also okay to embrace the [...]

Thank You, Mom

The words of those great men in history are a testament to the place of influence mothers hold in our lives. Celebrating mothers and the institution of motherhood should be important to all of us. The influence a mother wields on her child cannot be over-emphasized; it is timeless in its impact and powerful in its life-changing capacity.
