Our First Foster Placement:  Part 2

On January 6th I received a message. It was in our closed group of Foster parents. It said something like this. “Placement needed today for 4-year-old and 5-month-old. Both boys. Call the on-call worker if interested”. I had just finished the MOST fun girls’ lunch after church with two of my best girlfriends. They both have huge hearts. I was SO filled after church and the opportunity to introduce these two servant leaders. I saw the message. My heart stirred. It was wild. I was also nauseous. On the way home I called my husband and blurted out. “There are...

Fitness Myth:  Short Workouts Don't Work

by Coach Debbie   Most people think that the longer you workout, the more effective the workout.   We tell ourselves more equals better.  More minutes each day, more minutes each week.  Surely that will fast-forward results and deliver a dream body, right?   False.   The truth is, if you want results from exercise, work harder and give it your all, but go for LESS time!     In our Momsanity Sisterhood workouts, THIS is our primary focus: short yet effective workouts!  Our workouts result in an accelerated metabolic afterburn, which means you’ll be burning fat around the clock!  For...

Why are we no longer humbling ourselves to consider the point of view of others? When did...

Stop Being a Lawnmower Mom

by Coach Debbie   I used to teach fourth grade.  I love that age so much!  They’re independent yet not hormonal.  At the start of every school year we held an Open House where students and parents came to the classroom to meet me and get a vibe of how the year would be structured.  You could always tell that kids were nervous (and so was I).   I’d stand at the door to greet families and introduce myself and extend my arm to shake hands with each member of the family.  Here's what bothered me.  Immensely.  Mom or Dad...

Our Foster Care Journey:  Part 1

Have you ever made a hard decision in your life that only God could have orchestrated? Something that maybe you fought for YEARS or decades and then one day you finally said a hearty and willing YES? That’s the short story of our decision to become foster parents. But I know many of you have requested the longer story so here goes: I grew up playing orphan Annie. I know, weird. But I have always been a tad bit obsessed with adoption. Several of my childhood friends were adopted and I just kind of always had it in my heart...
