Holiday Stress Tips for Moms

Holiday Stress Tips for Moms

It goes without saying that the holidays can be extra stressful for moms. Chaotic schedules, messed up routines for kids, missed naps, financial stress, the pressure to find, purchase, and wrap gifts for everyone, hosting and all the cleaning that goes along with that, decorating, coordinating events with family. Literally, the list of holiday stresses can go on and on. And I personally think it’s so sad that such a magical time for our families results in such stress for the moms.

When God Works like An Ant

When God Works like An Ant

Being a Christian does not mean your life is perfect! We all have struggles. Ugly, tough, faith-shaking struggles. We deal with things like unfaithful partners, friends and family that disrespect our beliefs, bosses pushing us to do things we aren’t comfortable with, infertility, financial instability, raising kids, maintaining friendships through hard seasons of life, loving our spouses, losing a loved one, sickness. And I think most of us would be lying if we said we didn’t question God in all of it. “God, why is this happening to me? Why are you allowing this? How am I supposed to bring […]

Basic Photography Tips for Dads

Basic Photography Tips for Dads

All right moms, let’s just get it out there – a professional photographer I am not. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve probably already come to this conclusion, but I just thought I would throw this post together for moms to share. Why? Because picture taking is generally an invisible work of motherhood. Moms are always concerned with taking photos to capture memories, which then means moms are never in any photos. And as a mom, that just makes me so sad – that my children will look back and have tons of cute photos with their dad […]

Cheap Self-Care: How to Self-Care without Spending Money

Cheap Self-Care: How to Self-Care without Spending Money

Especially amongst moms, there has been a huge push for self-care lately. I mean, there are nearly twenty million posts on Instagram about self-care.

While those are all fun and good, not only do they not actually resolve any of the stress we as moms feel, it can alienate those of us that are on a tight budget. So here’s a list […]
