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…

Taco Soup (Whole30, Paleo, Slow Cooker)

I love tacos more than any one woman should love tacos. They have always been my favorite food. ย Thankfully I can still enjoy all the awesome taco flavors in all kinds of ways and still eat Whole30, Paleo or Paleoish (depending on the month, lol). I made this soup the other night and it turned…

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…

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…

Reclaiming Time With Smartphone Apps

A few months ago I wrote about how I was struggling to stay connected to the Lord during this busy season with a new baby in the home. Before Lucas was born I found a good rhythm for my study time during LucyKate’s nap time. It worked great for that season but I knew that…

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…
