When I first thought about starting a blog, I knew I wanted it to be “Real”. I didn’t want to portray an Instagram-ready, picture-perfect mom life…These photos are my real life. My highlights. My mundane. My crazy. I hope they make you smile.
This colorful homemade playdough is great for young kids! It is easy to make, non-toxic, and, when properly stored, lasts 3-6 months.
I spend most of my waking hours swept up in a whirlwind of chaos, joy, and constant movement. I used to wake up to an alarm clock everyday. I would leisurely hit the snooze button ten times before slowly getting out of bed. These days I’m woken up each morning with a child a quarter inch from my face saying yelling “MOMMY! WAKE UP!!!”
I don’t know where I’d be without REAL friends. You know the ones. The ones who don’t bat an eye when your toddler is throwing a fit on the ground because their child was doing the same thing ten minutes ago. The ones who don’t clean up their house and make it look picture-perfect right before you come over. The friends who will stop everything and take your crazy children for an hour just so you can breathe.
Memorizing Scripture is a great way to build the foundation of your child’s faith. When children recite Bible Verses, they form a relationship with Jesus Christ, gain a new understanding of their faith, are able to call on Christ when they are afraid, and will remember Scripture for their entire lifetime.
I LOVE summer! I love spending my summer days exploring the beach, swimming in the pool, and enjoying picnics at the park. And there is nothing better than some juicy watermelon on a hot summer day! This summer, I’ve been working hard to incorporate God’s Word into each day. Why not learn a Bible Memory Verse while swimming in the pool? It’s the perfect way to have fun AND learn God’s Holy Word.

It’s 11pm and once again my sweet baby is crying, not able to sleep. It’s been a rough week for him. Three teeth came in and two more are on the way. I take him out of his crib and bring him into the darkness of our living room. As I lay him on the couch, his daddy lies down next to him. My sweet boy, tears in his eyes, looks right at his daddy and gives a tiny smile. It is a smile of comfort and peace, knowing that everything is okay because his daddy is here.
Raise your hand if you have started family devotions at some point, only to have them slowly fade away within a few days, weeks, or months. Guilty. My husband and I have started family devotions many times. The thing is, we have a hard time sticking with them (and my husband’s a pastor!) Between overtired babies, uncooperative toddlers and pure exhaustion, our devotions eventually get pushed to the side.
Summer is almost here! If you’re like me, you’re looking for awesome family adventures without breaking the bank! Well, look no further. Here are 5 ways to have fun summer adventures on a budget.
