A Special Message to all My Family and Friends…Baby Announcement

Did you guess it? Yes, I’M PREGNANT!!! We’ll be expecting Baby #3 this September! We are very excited and thankful to God for answering the prayers of our hearts.

Big brother, Matteo is more than ready to guide his sister, Milana on how to be a big sister. In fact, he’s been praying for a new baby for sometime. One morning in December, he prophetically spoke to me, “Mom you are pregnant. There’s a baby growing inside you right now!” He’s even had a name picked out for our new baby for months. Needless to say, I couldn’t ask for a better eldest son. He’s a wonderful big brother. Continue reading “A Special Message to all My Family and Friends…Baby Announcement”

How to Conquer Parenting Fears Part 2

At any moment, I can put on my Television or go on my phone and see the news of tragedies taking place within or outside of our country. My heart grieves over the catastrophic journeys parents have walked. I’m constantly prayerful and I’ve shed many tears over the sorrow these mothers and fathers have endured. No one deserves the heartache of watching their child suffer or experience a tragedy. In times of sorrow, I’ve often heard the question of “Why do bad things happen?” or “Where is God when bad things occur?”

I believe with both of these questions we can find some direction from the Bible. It was while I was composing my first blog post on How to Conquer Parenting Fears Part I (if you haven’t read my Part I and would like to, click here), I realized these questions come up and they need to be addressed. If you’d like to empower yourself with 5 tools to help you conquer fear, I encourage you to read my first blog. I know it will bless you. In this blog post, I want to answer those questions that enter our minds in the midst of tragedies. I hope to empower parents so they can raise their children without fear.

How to Conquer Parenting Fears Part I

Both of my children were napping near me while I was folding laundry; and all of a sudden a thought hit me like a ton of bricks…“What would I do if something tragic ever happened to my children?” In that moment my heart sunk into my stomach. Tears begun to fill my eyes and fear tried to grip my soul. In that instant I recalled my first brother.

Mommy Life: Log Entry 2

I often hear from friends my life appears to them like “I have it all together!” I don’t mean to give the idea I don’t ever go through tough times, because I absolutely do. EVERY ONE DOES!! In regards to my struggles, I simply have learned to lean on and trust in God with everything; and rely on his grace to get me through my trials. I may not announce my battles with a bugle horn but I definitely share some of my battle scars in my blogs.

In my Mommy Life logs, I like to give my heart some medicine and look back at some of those trying days with some comical relief. I might as well. It sincerely helps having a sense of humor when raising kids. If you haven’t read my Mommy Life: Log Entry 1, you’ll crack up after reading about what I woke up to one morning. I think that image will haunt me for the rest of my life! Now that I have two toddlers, I’m thinking motherhood and humor are synonymous.

So enjoy my Log Entry 2 in my Mommy Life. I hope it will lighten up your day! You’re never alone in your Motherhood journey!

Why Women are Incredibly Influential 

My husband came home one day with a heavy heart. We were so busy with the kids, church and other tasks, he had to wait until the end of the day to share with me what had happened. As he began to pour out his heart to me, I felt grief consume me. I was offended by what happened to him but I kept silent. I struggled to keep my thoughts to myself but I knew I had to. He went further into detail about what had taken place and I kept thinking, “How could this happen to him?” I was appalled but I felt the Holy Spirit refrain me from speaking. One of our kids called for my attention, so I left my husband’s presence without muttering one word to him in response. Typically my husband would follow me around as I cared for our kids, asking for my thoughts but this time he didn’t. God needed to speak first.

You’re Being Watched! What is Your Life Teaching Your Children?

As I was scanning my Pinterest home feed I came across this quote:

“Based on how you spoke to (or about) your husband, today, what did you teach your son to look for in a wife?” – Matthew L. Jacobson.

After reading it, I immediately stopped and reflected. I honestly in that moment didn’t know if I was happy with the image I’ve been painting for my son, specifically what I wanted him to look for in a wife. Of course, I could go on and on about the characteristics of a good wife and what I’d hope he’d find in his future spouse. Still nothing can outweigh the constant display I’ve put before my son day after day. Whether I like it or not, I’m defining and creating for him a perception of what a wife is and what he may look for when he’s searching for her.

Mommy Life: Log Entry 1

Motherhood is filled with so many moments.  Sometimes those moments are wonderful, sometimes you’re like “Oh-God-help-me.” I know all you mothers can relate. My brother (single, without kids) from time to time will get a sneak peek into my life. I think he often finds my life entertaining but once and awhile I’ll get a question like: “So, when are you going to hire some help?” Needless to say, I am looking forward to seeing him get married and having kids.

Since I enjoy hearing about other mommy stories, I’m going to share some of my own. It’s always nice knowing I’m not alone in the adventurous journey of motherhood. Plus, some of my non-parent readers will have something to look forward to.  God bless their hearts!

Before you read the following, please be warned!  The content will be graphic and very personal.  Judgement ends here!
