My hubby and I went on a hike this week, a long one, which meant lots of uninterrupted time to talk. On that hike I thanked him for all he had done the previous week to help with the kids when my week was demanding at work, like he even did practice spelling tests and… Continue reading He Wants To Help You
I love the analogy about how women are like spaghetti and men are like waffles. Women's emotions are intertwined and interwoven. When something is bothering us it affects our whole being. And men, well they can more easily compartmentalize and keep those feelings in a box, and life goes on. I'm not sure which marriage… Continue reading Water His Heart
When you prepare, you're more prepared right? Whether it be food prep, clothing, finances, schedules, when you prioritize and plan it out, calendar it, write it down or map it out, you're better set up for success.

As you know, each child has different passions, abilities, heart desires, love for different things etc. so they each need to… Continue reading Build Them Up
