  • Money Lessons: Mommy is Learning, Too

    Every week $3 goes into Savings and $2 goes into Spending. Technically, our child who’s actually willing to work in order to earn money has a new framework for the wages she earns by doing one daily chore and, one chore, which occurs on a weekly ...

  • If a Friendship MUST End, Let it go like a Baby Tooth

    There are things that tempt us to change our minds. We’ve decided to take a certain approach – hopefully, with prayer and after giving ourselves the quiet and time to hear what God the Holy Spirit is teaching us, how He’s pointing to Jesus Christ in ...

  • I’m a Mom Learning to Understand her Children

    What does it mean that my son walks in shadow? Is it a middle child thing? Neither my husband nor I remember him being born. I mean…we both laugh about me putting my husband on patrol at the nursery to keep and eye on him, laughing ...

  • The Unicorns of Life: Jesus isn’t One of Them
