All in God’s Time

I don’t know about you, but I am a bit impatient when it comes to my requests of God.  Especially my requests for relief(like from labor pains) or direction. I often wonder what the next step is.  Where should I go from here? I am a homemaker, and a homeschool mom.  Should I be doing […]

The Love of a Goober

One Woman’s Junk 2

No, I’m not talking about junk in your trunk. Well, I guess I’m sort of talking about mine.  It’s 7 am Friday(the day after the fourth of July). With the festivities finally over, it’s time to start packing for my family’s three day mini-vacation.  The only problems are my “New Mommy” curves. Our beautiful son […]
