Do I seek satisfaction in who people think that I am? Some may think who we are is synonymous with our occupation. There is a desire to be successful in what one finds themselves doing. But even more than that, there is that innate drive to be better than someone else. The drive to be the best secretary, teacher, mom, interior decorator, doctor, lawyer, electrician, mechanic, welder, nurse… only to gain nods of approval....
Things are changing all around us, the darkness is visible. When I was a kid, and I felt scared or alone, I would shut my eyes to hide from the dark. I would close them tightly as if my closed eyes made the entire world disappear. The problem was, the darkness only enhanced my fears, in fact, it made me feel more anxious and alone. I quickly learned to rely on my imagination...
As it relates to the home, I think perhaps one of the adages that most proves itself prophetic over time is the following ... “Children become like their parents”. As a matter of fact, as the years pass by and I see old faces from the past who I haven’t seen for a long time, that is often a point of emphasis for them ... “You are looking more and more like your dad!” or “Wow, you remind me so much of your father!” Although this truth is not likely going to excite our children while they are young enough to still live at home, it is unlikely a truth that they will be able to avoid. ...
This statement 'Finding Time For Your Child When You Have No Time " just can not be true. We all have 24 hours in a day. It's our choice what we do with our time, and who among us, does not make time for what is important to us! Before I really get into this, let me tell you a little about myself. I'm a mother of two children and a wife of a wonderful man. God blessed us ...Keep Reading

Yes, there is a necessity to see this world for what it truly is and the daily battle we face as Christians. Unfortunately, I am referring to another kind of 'war'. You may have heard of it: "Mom Wars". You may have seen it in action; the commercials depicting the diffe...Keep Reading
Why Change isGOOD? "Changes are coming!" This phrase often strikes fear into the hearts of many, and perhaps, rightly so. Hearing this phrase from a CEO could indicate job cuts or reduction in salaries for employees. Hearing this phrase from a church pastor could cause tension in the congregation, and may even move members to utter the counter phrase, "But we've never don...Keep Reading
"For I know the plans I have for you declares The Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 If someone had told me 5 years ago that I would be sitting here writing a blog on why I became a preschool teacher I would have laughed in their face. Becoming a teacher was not in the plans that I had made for my future....Keep Reading
After School Care is SO MUCH MORE Than Babysitting When I was growing up, children didn't go to After School Care- just about everyone's mother was a stay-at-home Mom. We simply walked home when school was over, where Mom had our snack waiting for us. A lot has changed since then. Schools aren't built in neighborhoods anymore and traffic has increased so much that walkin...Keep Reading

One of the most familiar controversies in science is the theory of evolution. As Christians, we k...Keep Reading
