On the Road to Fit Mamahood

I  have a love-hate relationship with fitness.  My fitness track record is sporadic, at best. It turns out that I’m too wimpy for Jillian Michaels.  I’ve tried her Ripped in 30, and I can’t make it past the first week.  🙁 When I had my first child, I dropped weight VERY quickly.  I could eat […]

Where Is God In This Mess?

I have a confession to make.  As you probably know, I’ve been really struggling with depression. I’ve been out-of-control irritable and angry. I haven’t had patience with my kids. I haven’t shown my kiddos a lot of grace lately. I have been allowing myself to “shut down” mentally & emotionally and thereby spending waaaaaay to […]

Finding Joy In Depression {ebook & a giveaway for you}

Hey friends, If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you’ll know that I’ve written a couple of posts about depression.

My piles […]

What Do You Know About Depression? {It Isn’t Just About Sadness….}

I haven’t written a WHOLE lot about my journey with depression here.  I do have this post, Journey to the Dark Side {aka Depression Is….}.  I encourage you to read it, if you haven’t already. When I first acknowledged my depression, I didn’t want to be the first one to use the “D” word.  I […]

Journey to the Darkside {aka Depression is…..}

I love Mama Dweeb, and while I agree with her sentiments on this post, I felt the need to add my 2 cents…. For starters, I would NEVER EVER condone hurting or – heaven forbid – killing your child.  But in a way, I do understand the despair and sometimes the desperation that these moms […]

Garbage In, Garbage Out

“But the things that come out of the mouth come from the heart” -Matthew 15:18 I am not terribly proud of the things that have been coming out of my mouth lately. I have been feeling an urging to assess the things that I read & watch lately, as well.  I really like the suspense […]
