Thanks everyone for attending the meeting last night and what a treat to have Eric the new Chef at Church Cooks stop by with samples of his Big Noodle Soup. Our little town truly needs a upscale restaurant and chef like him.
As we discussed with him, he would like us to select 4 – 6 recipes…

It all starts with a promise, as most of us know small child promises are like mud pies, they mean SO much, look appealing, tempting but you know better than to take a bite. But since they come from their hearts just as mud pies do you want to accept them with a smile & believe they will be wonderful.

Mary and Emma returned from their mission trip to Peru late last night. The original plan was for a Saturday return, but the flight was canceled, rescheduled, then canceled again.
They boarded the plane in Lima on time for a midnight departure on Friday, but the pilot soon announced there would be a delay due to a broken windshield sensor. "Four hours later, we were allowed off the plane. We had had half a cup of water, no sleep and some stress," Candie, the team leader,…Continue

Many parents often times pressure their children to start potty training their child before they are fully ready. Potty training before your child is ready can cause unnecessary stress for both you and your toddler. With all three of my kids, I waited until they were ready to potty train before I even attempted it. A…Continue

A few weeks ago, I went to a single dad event held by a non-profit organization I'm partnering with for future workshops. Upon leaving, all the single parents were given gifts to take home, some were food items. I was given a large package of hamburger patty meat. As I left, the lady handing the food to me said, "Just stick it in the freezer." When I got home, in typical A Clueless Mom fashion, that's EXACTLY what I did. I was deciding what to make for dinner tonight when my mom suggested…Continue

My eldest son's flatmate played a (not very funny) practical joke on him this week - he hid something which my son then frantically hunted for, not understanding how it could not be where he had left it.
When I saw him later that day he was distraught about his "loss" - so I offered to take his keys and look for it for him.…

People often ask me what it is like to be mum to 7 children and I generally answer that it's not as hectic as you'd think, quite calm really, you just have to be organised. I look at my schedule today and think that last statement has never been so true.…

First, let's discuss my guns.
I've worked for weeks on these wings and they are finally getting where I want them. Perfect timing since I have a trip to Savannah next weekend and maxi dresses are in my future.
I posted this pic last…

Many parents wonder when is the perfect time to transition their baby from their crib into a toddler bed or regular bed. As a mom, I can’t give you a perfect answer because each child is different and is ready to move into a regular bed at different ages. You know your child best and can gauge when you…Continue

I follow those whom I admire on Twitter, and Anne Graham Lotz is one such individual. Yes, she is the reverend's daughter, but an impressive Bible teacher apart from her famous father. (www.angelministries.org)
Recently she tweeted a blog on Thanks-living. It struck a chord with me. It challenged me, dared me, compelled me to operate out of gratitude every day. I am finding that when I let gratitude be my guide, I cannot…Continue
