I've been battling getting caught up in the commercialism of Christmas (hey, don't judge me... there's nothing wrong with enjoying gift giving and happiness and an excuse to bring families closer together) and keeping in mind the true reason for why we celebrate Christmas. I've also been trying to teach my children what Christmas is all about: Jesus' birthday. Today, while trying to think of how to explain it better to my kids, my thought wandered to the Virgin Mary. I've thought about her…Continue

Life "introduced" me to a woman named Heather Von St. James recently. Her posts on www.mesothelioma.com let me get to know her a little better. I have been incredibly touched by her story. So much so that it made me take a closer look at my own life. Her…Continue

Maybe it boils down to poor parenting. Maybe it has nothing to do with parenting. Maybe I'll do my…Continue

Disclaimer: This blog is my opinion. Every one has one. This is mine.
I think that vaccinations are a good thing and I'm happy that I have the freedom and the opportunity to take my kids to the doctor to get them.

So my poor husband has been gone since mid September on a very demanding project for work. He gets to come home for 5 days for Thanksgiving and I've been trying to come up with some new yummy treats for him to enjoy while he's home.

I gave it a shot but I really bombed. If any one that reads the following link can…Continue

Its funny how God puts people in your life to help show you the answers to questions that you've been asking for a while. All it took for me to figure out a few things was a substitute Sunday school teacher this past weekend.

I have enjoyed reading for as long as I can remember. Tonight, at bedtime, when my daughter told me she couldn't fall asleep with out a stack of books in bed with her, I realized that she shared my love of literature.
Here's a list of my favorite books and some that I'm looking forward to reading:
