7 Tips after 17 Years of Marriage

   Today my husband and I celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary.  As I’ve considered the years and the journey we’ve been on together, I realize that it’s only by God’s continuous grace and mercy that we are not only still together, but also continuing to grow in our marriage.    I recently have met some younger couples on their own treks through building lives together and in our conversations as I’ve sought to offer wise counsel, a few themes recur.

20 Lessons As I Turn 40

In a couple of weeks I turn 40.  How crazy to even type that.  As I reflect on the reality of entering a new decade, I’m truly excited.  My 30s have been wonderful and amazing and full of raising babies and little boys and building Momsanity.  That said, I am so grateful for the wisdom that comes with age and have no desire to go backward. My husband and I also celebrated 20 years together this year on his 40th birthday.  It’s a big year for us and an important time for reflection. As I ponder the last decade, twenty...

The Sanity Saver That You MUST Prioritize

  It's November.  Holiday season is upon us.  The schedules are packed. This is the time of year that life gets busy and moms are on overdrive with everyday routines, waking up before dawn, chasing the school bus, scrambling to pack lunches, and chauffeuring kids to all-the-places.  Then at night you're shopping, planning travel and food and all the things.   While I’m grateful that this year provides a bit more normalcy for our kids, I KNOW that it’s extra tough on the mental and physical energy of moms.   We know that you might need cheerleaders to help you...
