A couple of weekends ago, Joe put on a VEX Robotics competition for his school! He has been working really hard to bring VEX to where we live, and this was the first of many. Actually, he wrote his dissertation … Continue reading Wednesday Walk Along: Chasing Dreams and Throwing Leaves
Today I want to thank Dawn of Drawing Closer to Christ for nominating me to receive a Sunshine Blogger Award! I am sorry I’m so late to the game, Dawn. If you haven’t met or been inspired by Dawn yet, you have only to visit her blog and you will see what a truly faithful encourager she truly is. Due to timing, I won’t be able to pass this tag on today, but I wanted to honor Dawn and answer her questions for my walk-along today. Continue reading Wednesday Walk Along: Sunshine Blogger Award
First things first, I am NOT the best parent out there 😂. In fact, I am a BIG believer that there is no “best” way. You are simply the best parent for your child because you love and know them best. Whatever your methods, as long as you have that, don’t let anyone else call the shots! That said, I developed this acronym earlier in the year for some of my own parenting goals, and I would love to share it with you! Take and leave what you will.

I love to bake! But when it comes to cooking, I leave it to my husband — the expert. However, soup is one meal I can cook, and feel fairly confident in serving afterward. Especially if the recipe uses a slow-cooker (my favorite kitchen appliance before and after kids 😂). With winter already on its way here in our little town, we are breaking out all of the cold-weather soups, and this recipe has quickly become a new favorite.

Morning, everyone! Happy Wednesday! Today, on assignment from my dietitian, I am trying to define what “healthy” means for me. How about you? Healthy living can have so many connotations, but the great thing is: you get to decide. What does healthy mean for you? Continue reading Wednesday Walk Along: What Does “Healthy” Mean to You?
I want to thank my friends at jesusluvsall and Herry Chic Counsels for tagging me to participate in the October “What Kind of Pumpkin Are You?” Tag.

Sometimes, you put your kids to sleep; other times, they put you to sleep. Shucks, sometimes nobody sleeps. But one thing is for sure: parenting is a full-time job. Today, I’d like to share with you three tips that I use when the day winds down and the tired/hangry hits our house in full gear.

On Sunday, we held our annual children’s program at my church. The kids sang beautifully, and they shared simple truths about their faith in Jesus. We gave them a few prompts, and here is what they said: Continue reading Wednesday Walk Along: I Feel My Savior’s Love
We made these the other day, and they turned out so well! Our neighbors love it when we share, too. In fact, if you were here, I would bring you a plate. But, alas, the recipe will have to do. Continue reading Wednesday Walk Along: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
When stress makes its way into my bones, I thank God for the laughter in my life. Often, that laughter (and stress, admittedly) comes in the form of my children. So, if you are walking a rough road today, this one is for you. You can thank my three year old.
Happy Labor Day! I feel like it’s been a while. How was your holiday? We Furses celebrated with a busy, fun-filled weekend. Continue reading Wednesday Walk Along: Peach Days 2019
Good morning! I’ve been looking forward to our walk. So many firsts took place in the short time since we last talked; I don’t know where to begin.
Let’s go for a walk and get to know each other. Maybe we can be friends. It will also give me a chance to atone for all of the vacation food I enjoyed this weekend.
