What does that mean to you? For me, I try to put my husband and kids first, and sometimes while doing that put them last. I get so caught up in earning a living that I don't cook or clean. I'm working on that, but that's not really the only part of putting family first.… Continue reading Family First
I HAVE SUFFERED DEPRESSION MOST OF MY LIFE! And I am not ashamed to admit it. Some may even say I've been "crazy". Not ashamed of that either. I fully believe that Satan wants us to feel shame. God gives us remorse for things we've done wrong, but shame doesn't come from Him. If Satan… Continue reading No Shame
I let yesterday get away from me. And I'll admit, I was being lazy and spent the day reading. 🙂 I do that every so often. I love to read and sometimes get wrapped up and refuse to put my book down. That was yesterday for me. Today, I'll put up yesterday's post and today's.… Continue reading Motivational Monday: Even though it’s Tuesday
Yesterday, after nearly 19 years of living with my oldest baby, we took her off to college. My baby is smart (graduated Valedictorian, got full-ride scholarships to her college), kind, loving, and beautiful in every way. She's a hard worker and takes her talents and increases them. If she wants to do something she may… Continue reading Big Changes…Big Blessings
Friday was my 44th birthday and I want to thank you all for wishing me a happy day! And it was. I know that some of you might not want to spend your "special day" at a seminar, but I am so grateful that I got to spend my day with the wonderful women who… Continue reading Thank You!
We love our pets. They aren't just animals, but family. And we must do what is best for them. This was our puppy Smokey. We didn't get to keep him for long because I had gotten pregnant and Smokey became very protective of me, not wanting even my husband and kids around me. While we… Continue reading For the Dogs (and Cats)
This week I read an article on the blog Voices in Bioethics titled: Transitioning From Who You Were to Who You Must Become: A Necessary Mental Switch, by Priya Misra. While I find the article extremely interesting, I'm not writing about medicine or the importance of good doctors in the world, which, even though I am… Continue reading BECOME WHO YOU MUST BECOME!
As parents, we have rules and guidelines for our children to follow. We teach them things that will help them live their lives happier and safer. We teach our children how to stay safe with strangers. We (hopefully) pay attention to their online activities and friends. We know who their friends are and try… Continue reading Keeping the Commandments of God
Today in church we discussed the difference between a Humble Heart and a Prideful Heart. I think, at different times, we find ourselves in both catagories. Being human, we often find ourselves prideful. Though it's natural, it's not what God asks of us. We must repent and strive daily to be more HUMBLE. To be… Continue reading Humility and Pride
We all struggle to know and understand what we should do during different times in our lives. God can and will help you! If you're not sure how to talk to Him, contact me and I'll help you learn to communicate with God.
This is a special day for me, because I get to celebrate some great men! First and foremost is my wonderful husband and the father of my kids. John Jensen, I love you more than words can say! You are the hardest working, most loving man I know. Happy Father's Day! Now, to move on… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!
