Water

“The generous soul will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.” ~ Proverbs 11:25 ~ Watering is time-consuming, and it can be expensive. It can seem like a waste, quite frankly. However, there’s something refreshing about the healthy green of a yard, feeling the soft grass under my feet instead […]

A Clarification (to my previous post)

I want to clear things up just a bit, though I don’t know if my efforts will do much good. Nevertheless, it is being said of me that in a recent blog post of mine I am “bashing working moms. ” However, I want to make it known that it certainly wasn’t my intent to […]

Daycare Dilemma

First of all, let me just say, I hate what the term “childcare problems” implies about our children.  Unwittingly, this subconsiously sends the message that our children are hassles and inconveniences.  Children that need care-taking are problems.  Why don’t we instead gather together as communities to discuss “parentcare problems?”  Why is it so hard to […]

On Being a Stay At Home Mom: It’s Not a Competition

Far too often, it seems like life  is about trying to prove to others our worth, our success, our identity.  We buy into the idea that because we can buy a bigger home, we should; because we can afford a new car, we need to buy a new car; because our promotion at work affords […]

On Being a Stay At Home Mom: Blessing of Nothing Too Pressing

As a SAHM, there’s very little that hurries my life except for what I decide gets packed into it.  If I’m too busy, I have no one to blame but myself.  This is really true for all of us–the pace and rush of our lives is no ones responsibility but ours–but for a SAHM, it’s […]

On Being a Stay At Home Mom: It’s NOT About Me

Okay, so I said that being a SAHM is all about me, and in one respect that’s true.  Everything I do comes from who I am; therefore, if I’m terribly broken and incomplete, my role in my home and family will be severely fractured and out of balance. But if I’m strong, emotionally healthy, and However, if […]

On Being A Stay At Home Mom: It’s All About Me

I’m an avid reader, for those of you who don’t really know me.  I’m no way the bookiest person out there, but I average about 3 books a month.  But the crazy thing is, honestly, I can count the number of parenting books I’ve read on one hand.  Truly, I can only count 5 books […]

On Being a Stay At Home Mom: The Beginning

Lately I’ve been feeling a need to help women who happen to be SAHMs (Stay At Home Moms) or will be transitioning into such a position or even hope to be living their work in the home at some point.  This is no way meant to exclude SAHDs (Stay At Home Dads) but these series, […]

Naughty UnNapping Horse

Last week, on my way home from Montana, I drove past an expansive area of pasture land which was home to hundreds of horses, truly.  And being that the road was absolutely straight, I was afforded the privilege of watching these beautiful four-legged creatures while I tooled along.
