Sixteen and Pregnant (Take 2)

Sixteen and Pregnant (Take 2)
  I was also 16 when I found myself in the same situation as Dee (If you do not know Dee, please see previous blog). But my story differs from hers in the fact that I did not seek the resources of a local pregnancy center. I honestly didn't know they existed at the time. But I would like to think my story would be different if I had known, and...

Sixteen and Pregnant

loneliness-1879453_640
At sixteen I found myself in a situation I never imagined I would be in, I was pregnant. Where do I go from here? What do I do? How do I tell my parents?

The Many Roads of Motherhood

The Many Roads of Motherhood
Motherhood as I knew it, is so far away from where I am now, that I likely wouldn't recognize it! I know it is definitely God's spirit and His love within that allows me to throw self-preservation and a longing for being emotionally safe and to embrace whatever He calls me to do for my babies.

Back to School: How to organize and keep you're sanity!

Back to School: How to organize and keep you're sanity!
As August arrives, so do thoughts of back to school, mounds of papers, and daily routines. Although Ken and I now are technically considered empty-nesters, we do have a daughter that teaches elementary school, so we are still well aware of the endless needs of those starting back to school. As organizing is near and dear to my heart, I used a binde...

Might The Story Have Changed

window-view-1081788_64_20190620-133426_1

The Why

Recently while driving down the road I asked God why, why does my son have so many challenges to overcome? Why can't he just be "normal?" I've seen drug addicts have perfectly normal kids, that they have completely taken for granted. Why him? Why me? I did everything right during my pregnancy! And I had to stop myself, what was I saying? Was I sayi...

Go Home and Love Your Family

I've noticed that sometimes I treat my family and friends (those closest to me) with far less respect than I do others. When I go into a store to purchase something or into a restaurant to be served, I'm usually pretty polite. I thank the cashier or my waiter for their service. I give a pleasant smile. I might even spend a little time encouraging a...
