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

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.

Everyone says that the first 5 years are the hardest […]


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 […]

If you’re a mom, then you know just how busy life can be sometimes. Between school drop off/pick up, making meals, cleaning, cooking, and managing a household, we often times put our looks on the back burner.

If that’s you, then you’re gonna love these three minimal makeup tips! They’re easy and quick, but still leave you looking pretty great! I have my three tips listed below, but don’t worry – […]

Parenting Goals: teaching discernment

Parenting Goals: teaching discernment

At a moms group meeting at my church recently, I was asked to define my parenting goals in just a few short words. As you can imagine, I found this quite challenging. I felt like there was so much I wanted to impart on my daughter. To sum it up in a few words was impossible. And then one word popped in my head: discernment. My parenting goals all wrapped up in one word. Discernment. That word felt so perfect when it came to what I want to teach my daughter. Discernment is an important skill that would behoove her to develop. […]


Blend Foundation Quickly: the tool that has changed my life!

Blend Foundation Quickly: the tool that has changed my life!

If you’re looking for a way to blend foundation quickly, then look no further! I have discovered the secret – and that secret is simply using a large sponge! I’d say that a sponge is one of the most popular ways to blend out foundation. Some of the most popular brands are Real Techniques, Beauty Blender, and EcoTools. While they vary in shape, they are generally the same size. But I recently picked up a Sonia Kashuk sponge from Target and noticed it was huge and that it greatly cut down on my time spent blending.

5 Challenges Moms Face Today

5 Challenges Moms Face Today

This post was inspired by an old post of mine. I wanted to delve deeper into my claim that moms have it harder today than they did even 30 years ago. Moms today are facing challenges of motherhood that previous generations of mothers couldn’t even dream up. The point of this post is mere encouragement. Motherhood is hard, and it can be even harder when you feel like others are looking down on you and judging you. Just remember – moms make the best decisions they can for their families, and doing it differently doesn’t make you wrong. Lets get right […]
