Family God Moments

Our Family’s Journey to Find God in the Everyday


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

Uniquely and Equally Loved

Within the last few weeks, we had the opportunity to spend time with each of our kids individually. Our 7-year-old son attended a birthday party on a Friday night.

Time: that clock just keeps on ticking

We went out to dinner recently, just the four of us. My husband sat with our 6-year-old. They had a wonderful time talking, playing games and coloring the kids menu. I sat with our 2-year-old. I spent my time cutting up food, asking her repeatedly to just sit still, and attempting to figure out why she had taken her shoes off. I found myself looking ahead eagerly to the day when both kids were easy – wishing away ages 2 and 3! Continue reading
