God’s Call to be Nice to Everyone… Even Those With Opposing Views on Facebook

God’s Call to be Nice to Everyone… Even Those With Opposing Views on Facebook

Is this my longest blog post title? Perhaps. But I wanted to discuss this very specific topic, because I see it all the time. Facebook is a huge source of social interaction for stay at home moms and mom groups have exploded. But you know what I see a lot of? Cattiness, snarky comments, and general unkindness. Even Especially in Christian groups. I know that religion inspires a lot of passionate feelings within us, but the nastiness is just unnecessary. In fact, God calls us to a much higher standard. Let’s take a peek at God’s call to be nice to […]

God’s Grace: When Grace, Mercy, and Forgiveness are Ugly

God’s Grace: When Grace, Mercy, and Forgiveness are Ugly

Today I want to spend a little bit of time discussing a true example of God’s grace. This post is inspired by a video on Anna Duggar’s Instagram in the beginning of March regarding her husband, Josh Duggar’s, birthday. Before we dive into the meat and potatoes, I want to be clear that this post isn’t about whether her decision is right or wrong – this is about the fact that her decision exemplifies God’s grace, mercy, and forgiveness. I don’t want people to get the idea that Christians in any way, shape, or form condone what Josh Duggar did. […]


Favorite Lipsticks for Summer | 2018

Favorite Lipsticks for Summer | 2018

I’m pretty solid in my makeup ways, especially when it comes to complexion products. However, one makeup product that I like to switch up, especially with the seasons, is my lipsticks. I don’t even do it consciously or intentionally – it just naturally happens as I’m inundated with trends, vibes, and color palettes on social media. I have this nifty, little, heart-shaped acrylic organizer that I use for my most-used lipsticks of the season. Let’s take a peek at my favorite lipsticks for summer… You’ll notice that not all of these are lipsticks. I have lipsticks, glosses, liquid lipsticks, and […]

5 Lessons I’ve Learned After Being Married for 5 Years

Tomorrow is my 5 year wedding anniversary and it has me reflecting on the last 5 years a lot! Derek and I got married when I was 22 years old and I’m currently 27, so lots of things have changed and we’ve both done a lot of growing and developing.

5 Things Christians Say That Aren’t Actually In the Bible

5 Things Christians Say That Aren’t Actually In the Bible

If you’ve been a Christian for any significant amount of time, then you may have noticed some things that fellow Christians say that aren’t exactly in the Bible. These things are usually said with very good intentions and meant as encouragement, but I feel like it’s important that Christians spread biblical encouragement. I’m well aware that this post may ruffle some feathers, so I’m praying that this can be received with open hearts and minds. Please understand that I’m not here to shame or condemn, just simply to educate. Let’s get into these 5 things Christians say that aren’t actually in […]

Motivation as a Stay At Home Mom and a Momprenuer

Motivation as a Stay At Home Mom and a Momprenuer

I think everyone would agree that stay at home moms have a lot on their plates. Cooking, cleaning, managing schedules, making meals, refereeing, etc. It’s a lot to handle! But moms are so amazing and have added even more to their plates by becoming stay-at-home-momprenuers, too. Moms are flocking to direct sales companies and blogs in order to be able to provide income to their homes. As you can imagine, this makes things even trickier for moms. Makes managing their schedules even more precarious. And sometimes things get really rough. Kids get sick, burn out sets in, emotions run high, and […]
