Perseverance

Jones Onigbinde – Great Mother Heart … Have you ever had a truly awful day – whether it’s work or school or personal issues, whatever the case may be – where you felt like giving up and railed against the unfairness of the world?  How did you deal with it?  Did you wallow in self-pity, anger, and/or resentment?  For how long?  What did it take for you to get up and get [...]

Influence

Jones Onigbinde – Great Mother Heart … I am often asked what my greatest influence is, and I can never choose just one.  My answer is invariably, “God and my mother.”   I thank and pray and speak to both daily and am ever grateful for the inspiration and character building and life-lessons that both have and continue to impart on me. What would your answer be?  Who or what had the most [...]

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 [...]

A Day in the Life

Moms are B-U-S-Y. No matter if they stay home, work full time, work part time, homeschool, it’s hard to shuffle the day-to-day needs of kids, your spouse, work, the housework, all of it. 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 [...]

Easy Side Dishes and Appetizers

I’ve been working from home for seven years now and one of the best perks about working from home is having more time to cook. I never realized how stressful it was, being a full-time working mom and trying to get a decent dinner on the table before 7 pm, until I had a job with a bit more freedom. Not having enough time to cook all too often results in my family having [...]

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, just do it!

“What do you want to do? You keep talking about how much you hate your job but you’re not doing anything about it.” I look at him in the driver’s seat, one hand on the wheel, the other leaning on the console. So relaxed as he asks me what I want to do with the rest of my life. Which, as a 28-year-old mother of two, I should have probably already known. “I don’t know. I feel [...]

On Books and Reading More

I am a voracious reader. For as long as I can remember, books have been my escape and my most reliable friend. My husband always jokes that we’re in trouble if our house ever catches on fire because of all the books we have packed in boxes and sitting on shelves. I think as moms we all agree that reading is a really important part of our children’s growth and development. But I have a [...]

Parenting Tips

I think all moms would agree that being a parent is a lot of work. Rewarding work – but still tough! Some days it feels like my to-do list is about a mile long and I’ll never get everything done. So I’m always looking for ways to make my life just a little bit easier. Lucky for us, the internet is full of great (and, let’s be honest, some not-so-great) tips and tricks that [...]
