we

This post goes in the mom journals. Lord give me the words to express this in a way that best encompasses who we are and not what we do. Having a family changes everything. Living through health problems puts life in perspective. I am going along with a bit of a theme right now as […]

this year…

Grateful for: My life. My actual physical life. There is a lot going on under our skin that makes the body function. Little intricate cells and fluids that work together normally… or they don’t work like their supposed to and they cause pain. They cause the body not to work properly.

journey through christianity

Oooh, tricky topic. I’ll try to tread lightly as I make way through the experience I had from meeting Jesus to, well, now. When I met and fell in love with Christ I was 17. In the years to follow I would fall deeply in love with him, relapse into opiate abuse, come to fall more deeply […]

Homeschooling for Excellence

I have been joyful and at peace pertaining to my health in spite of not feeling physically great, and examining myself in search of a better outlook on motherhood and homeschooling.
