When the Greyness is Darker than the Dark
*I wrote this as I was coming out of PPD, and thought I'd share it with you all. Dark times and trials are awful, don't get me wrong.  But at least when you're in them, you know they're in them.  And you feel justified to be sad, upset, or at a loss to know...

The Bakers and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
*Disclaimer: This story is completely true and happened about a month ago.  It is not fabricated or elaborated upon. When we went to bed last night, we were expecting a good nights sleep, but when we woke up this morning, we wondered if we'd even gone to be...

You Are My Greatest Adventure
To My People, Recently we were hanging out with a group of married friends when it dawned on me that Daddy and I were the old-marrieds of the bunch.  Everyone else had been married two years or less...and here we are fast-approaching our 5th anniversary.  W...

Dear Single a Girl: Don't Waste Time; or How Who I Am Factors into being a Stay-at-Home Mom
Miles and I have started doing "school time" together a few days a week.  I know, I know...he's only two.  Let me assure you...it's really simple and laid back and only takes about 20 or 30 minutes.  And we're both loving it. Admittedly, I may be loving it ...

MSOI: My New Favorite Budgeting Tool
Little confession here:  I enjoy money.  Not in a wealth-craving, materialistic way or anything.  I just really enjoy working with numbers and budgeting.  When I say I'm an on-again-off-again administrative assistant at Stone County Ironworks, what I really...

Dear Single Girl: Think Outside the Box
As long as I could remember, I was encouraged by youth leaders and well-meaning mentors to make a list of what I "wanted" in a husband and to stick to my standards.  While some of the things on my list were good, like "Christian" or "honest", I've come to b...

Taking Motherhood for Granted
The other day Miles crawled up into my lap while I was feeding Nora and said, "Mama, you've got your big boy and you've got your sister."  I smiled, knowing what he meant.  Sometimes, in the midst of wiping bottoms and cleaning up smoothies spilled all over...

Because the First Step is Admitting that You Have a Problem
Nobody would have known from the outside that something was wrong.  If you asked me how I was doing I would have said “good” or “fine”.  And wasn’t I really?  I had a wonderful husband with a steady job, a cozy house, and two beautiful children that I got t...

Bitterness
It's like a cancer deep down inside of you.  Nobody sees it.  Nobody knows it's there.  Except you...and, of course, God. I've known the nagging pain of it far too well.  It began with a valid reason.  A blunder.  Somebody did me wrong.  The fact that I had...

Modesty Revisited
A few weeks ago, an anonymous person commented on one of my old posts from my newlywed days .  I had to laugh and cringe a little bit when I reread it, both at my writing style and a few of my thoughts.  Over the three years since I wrote that post, I've de...
