Does life ever go as planned? I don’t think so. Mine certainly has not gone as planned. In the past 6 years, my life has been anything but boring. I’ve gone through a divorce, gave birth to a wonderful daughter, faced the scariest day of my life when she had surgery, got engaged, went through […]
Sibling rivalry, it’s such a joyous thing isn’t it? Do you remember fighting your sibling to get the toy out of the box? How about the not so friendly games of monopoly. Yet, at the end of the day, you know they had your back. I am the youngest and do not like admitting that […]
Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding. Remember, the Lord in all you do, and he will give you success. Not many people in my “online world” know that I’ve been through a divorce. It’s something I tend to gloss over in conversations unless it’s […]
Do you struggle with writer’s blog? I believe that all writers have at one point or another. When I first started blogging, I struggled with coming up blog post ideas.

For prolonged survival mode, I highly recommend reading “Say Goodbye to Survival Mode” by Crystal Paine. She gives wonderful tips and suggestions to break the cycle of survival mode.
Why is it such a common thing to “be real”. Seriously, what were you before? I don’t get it. Everybody is going to have different sides that they show different people. You best believe that a different mom shows up at the elementary school than who shows up at home. For one thing, the mom […]
I’ve been meaning to blog about this topic for a while now but haven’t because it’s difficult for me. The day my baby had surgery has terrifying to me as a mother. On February 20, 2012, my daughter very suddenly developed a large red lump on the side of her neck along her jaw line. We were […]
After the response to my rant the other day, I realize that other people are in my financial position too. In honor of all of us struggling, I’d like to share what I did to survive financially this week.
