Are You Content To Sit In Your Own Mess?

In Faith, Phenomenal

As a mom of twins, I change a lot of diapers, and often my twins are not about that diaper change life. The interesting thing is when one of the twins poops and I go to change their diaper I am met with one of the following:   A quick about face to run in the other direction A child who is flailing around to resist getting the diaper changed A child who decides to hide under the table to escape the diaper change   During this entire ordeal, I calmly explain, “it is just a quick time out and…

God Loves Single Mothers Too- An Open Letter to Single Moms on Mother's Day

God Loves Single Mothers Too: An Open Letter to Single Moms on Mother’s Day

In Faith

I really wanted to write this post to celebrate the single moms on Mother’s Day. I think that it is extremely important because unfortunately, we can experience judgmental, condescending, and critical attitudes from others because we are single moms. Sometimes people say, “They must have done something to deserve it,” “they made a bad decision,” etc. However, in all of the criticism, these judgmental attitudes fail to address the elephant in the room – we, mothers, chose to stay and parent our children. We didn’t choose to leave. In 1 Timothy 5:8, the Bible says, “But if anyone does not…

In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your path.” – Proverbs 3:5–6 (ESV). But what does that mean? What if you are stressed, worried, facing financial struggles, or things just don’t seem to be working out? We know that we need to trust in the Lord and get out of our own strength, but how do we do it? This post will show you 5 ways to get out of your own strength,…

Why You Need to Be a Good Money Mentor for Your Children

Why You Need to Be a Money Role Model For Your Children

In Faith, Finance

As a new mom, I knew that my twins would depend on me to meet their physical and emotional needs. However, I didn’t know just how much they would study, observe, and mimic me, even this early. Thus, I am very careful to model the behavior and attitude that I want to see in my children. I believe that parents understand intuitively that they need to watch what they say and how they act around their children. Think about it: When you teach your children how to eat solid foods for the first time, do you show them how you…
