Walks and Wildflowers

Today was a good day. Kids did really well for the most part. After lunch we all went for a walk… Our first walk as a family of 5. The boys in the double and big sister walking along holding daddy’s hand the entire time. I kept thinking over and over “I can’t believe this…

Three: The Magic Number

I first found out I was pregnant in January 2011. As I began to sink into all things baby, this song constantly played in the back of my mind… the soundtrack for things to come. My man, my baby and me. Three would be our magic number. Little did I know that three would indeed…

Seasons

I donโ€™t know about you but I just love the fall season. It really is my most favorite time of the year. I love the crispness in the air, I love the changing colors of the trees, I love pumpkin picking and hayrides and I REALLY love the pumpkin spice lattesโ€ฆ But what I love…

Dear All The Praying People

My kid slept 8 hours last night! Granted, he went to bed at 7 pm and I went to bed around 10:30 pm so I didn’t get 8 hours but 4.5 is a big improvement! Thank you for your prayers and your words. The best part about this blogging challenge has been hearing from so…

Without Him How Lost I Would Be

Last night my baby boy had me up all night and I just couldn’t get him to calm down. He has not been sleeping well at all lately and, exhausted, I was at the end of my rope. I was tense and frustrated and about to lose my mind. Suddenly I found myself singing songs…

First Foods

One of my most favorite things about my babies is feeding them their first foods. It really is the best. They are so cute as they experience tasting something different for the first time. The faces they make, some of enjoyment and delight, others of shock and disgust! They are just so sweet and innocent…

Two Years Old

Today we celebrate LucyKate’s second birthday. I wanted to write a heartfelt and meaningful post in honor of her special day. But I just can’t. I have tried all day and the words fall short. So I will simply say this: Lucia Kathryn, being your mom is the best thing. I am infinitely grateful that…

Make Yourself At Home

An influential voice in my life recently told me that it takes at least a year, up to two years, to truly feel settled into a new home. We moved in December 2011, December 2012 and June 2013 so I suppose that means I have been in an ongoing state of being unsettled. I only…

Staying Connected In the Midst of Change

Eight weeks ago our little family of three became four as we welcomed precious Lucas James Walters into the world! He is a doll and we are soaking up every sweet minute of his new little life. His presence, however, has brought my blogging and my study of God’s promises to a screeching halt. Since…

How to Face Your Fears

God is leading me down a very interesting and unexpected path as I seek to know and believe his promises.ย  The more I study the promises of God and ask for his help believing his promises, I find him leading me face to face with my fears. To be truthful, fear is what propelled me…
