Let’s start with the backstory, shall we? Two years ago, I would’ve sworn that I would NEVER be a homeschool mom. I could rattle off every reason (excuses for me, really) why it just wouldn’t work: I’m not disciplined enough. I’m terrible at math. My kids are 3 different ages/grades. I couldn’t run my business […]

Just about every friend I know has at least a book or two that they’ve been “meaning to read.” Sometimes it’s one they started and just got distracted with life things or maybe it’s one that had great reviews, was a list topper, or the newest release from their favorite author. Me? I’ve got a […]

Have you ever watched an artist at work? Let me clarify first: I’m not necessarily referring to an artist with a canvas on an easel and a palette of paint in their hand, although that may be what first came to mind when considering that question.

It’d be easy to sit here on my couch surrounded by reminders that Christmas morning was just shy of a week ago and think about all the awfulness that 2020 brought.

It’s strawberry season in Georgia and there’s nothing better than some farm-fresh berries! Yesterday, I discovered that our favorite local orchard had a Roadside Market pickup option and I jumped on it! I grabbed a flat of freshly picked strawberries for just $20! I would’ve easily paid $4-5 for a pound at the grocery store […]

“Get me, mama!” The pitter patter of sweet little feet has grown into the thundering stomps of a rambunctious six year old daring me and his daddy to try to catch him as he races down the long hall, around the kitchen island, and into the living room. Did I mention it’s usually accompanied by […]

“Maybe God is just showing me that I need to cling to what He’s shown me – what He’s called me to – and just OWN it. What if He’s just waiting on my obedience?” Even hearing the words come out of my mouth made me feel determined and anxious all at once. Sometimes the […]

I have a confession… I’m not perfect. I know, it’s probably super shocking, right? *insert eye roll emoji here* You see, I’ve always been somewhat of a perfectionist. The first time I really knew that label applied to me was in 4th or 5th grade, when we had to write our standard info at the […]

It was a humid, mid-summer day in the South. I can remember it like it was yesterday and not 30-ish years ago: I was maybe about 8 or 9 years old and I remember standing on the high dive at the local public pool. I had watched other kids jump – seemingly fearlessly – off […]
