I know when I need a break!

My husband and I returned yesterday from our week long stay in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Our time away was amazing! A beautiful resort, stunning views, fabulous food, time with my husband and ample time for rest. I am so thankful we have the opportunity to travel and family back at home willing to watch our kids while we’re gone! Continue reading

How being a parent STILL helps me understand God’s love!

My youngest child turned 5 years old this week. My baby has somehow become this sweet, independent, intelligent, compassionate little girl. She is someone I delight to be around – not just because she’s my daughter but because of the person she has become! Continue reading

Finding Presence in ALL places

In a recent discussion with a coworker, I shared that I was taking online seminary classes and had just started a new course. We had been discussing his new graduate level business program, lamenting on the time and work involved. I think how great it is to have that phase of life behind me, and make the same statement I’ve made the last 9 years: “I’m done with graduate studies, I’ve studied for and passed all of the right exams. No more school for me!” Continue reading
