Monday Morning Mothering Encouragement…We Are His Workmanship!

Ephesians 2:10 – For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Am I the only one overwhelmed by the realization that God made me?  GOD MAD ME!  On PURPOSE.  Just the way I am.  God prepared for me long before I […]

Monday Morning Mothering Encouragement…Worldly Success!

Will there ever be a greater blessing in this world than they days when my children have grown and gone off to live lives that are faithful to Christ and their calling?  I can admit that one of my biggest fears is that this somehow won’t come true!  That I will spend all of these years […]


Christ Centered Character Training Day 5: God’s Word is the Key to My Life

I’ve struggled with how to close up this blog series.  It’s been a subject of prayer for me for several weeks.  I had originally intended to share with you another character trait that my family has attempted to address using God’s own word.  With our Child Training Bible and other resources we’ve addressed everything from […]


Christ Centered Character Training Day 4: Fear!

My eyes blearily blink open.  I squint at the clock.  It is all of 4:30 in the morning.  What woke me up?  It takes a moment for the fog to lift before I realize that we have a visitor.  I assume it might be our 3 year old daughter, but then again, she never comes […]

Christ Centered Character Training Day 3: Complaining!

It’s 5:30pm and we are laying dinner on the table.  My 8 year old comes over and takes one look before turning up his nose and declaring that he doesn’t like it.  Never mind we had it just two weeks ago and he ate well then.  Today, he doesn’t like it! On the way home […]


Christ Centered Character Training Day 2: Fighting!

It’s a screech! A scream! A thump on the ceiling overhead.  A wail that reminds me of an animal I might only encounter near the ocean and then, the hammering of footsteps down the stairs.  Yep, my kiddos are at it! Fighting again!  Not just quarreling this time but a full on fist fight.  These […]

Just my Banana!

That’s what I call my baby girl, Banana.  She adores the fruit and it rhymes with her name so it just works for me.  I joke that I’m going to go to the judge and have it officially changed or added.  Don’t worry, I know she’d hate me forever.  But while she’s still little, I’ll […]


Review: Homeschool Spanish Academy

We we recently received Homeschool Spanish Academy  Early Language Program for ages 5-8 years for review.  Noah was privileged to experience 7 classes with a live native Spanish speaking teacher with experience in instructing children in her language.  Why Spanish for my 7 year old?  I mean, after all most English speaking American children do not get any experience with a new language […]


Brittany and Tommy! Beach Engagment Session| CT Engagement and Wedding Photographer

It all began with a simple party invitation.  Brittany’s friend was invited to a birthday party and Brittany got roped into tagging along.  Who knew that one night would change the course of her life!  It was just like any other party.  People were hanging out, talking, dancing.  The usual.  Then she spotted this cutie […]
