Helping Out a Family in Need After a Tragedy

I am in a wonderful mom’s group in St. Louis called MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers). One of the moms in the group had a friend who recently died after being stung by bees. Here are some Facebook posts that really touched my heart and many others. “Sarah and Eric Harkins are in desperate need of our prayers. Sarah, who is 5 months pregnant with the Harkins’ 5th child was stung […]

Is it hard to be a good friend? A Look at Girls and Friendship

I don’t know what I would do without my girlfriends–I am one of those people that keeps in touch with everyone. It is much easier nowadays with text messaging and social media. My husband keeps track of my friends based on how I met them: Is she your high school friend? MOPS friend? Writer friend? College friend? Teacher friend? etc. I’m lucky.

I have posted the video below, but if you don’t want to take the time to watch it (although it’s powerful and only 3 min. long), basically, there are girls probably in high school that the narrator asks […]

Speaking Up is Hard To Do?

I know that speaking up is hard to do. I think it’s only in recent years when I have actually found my voice and started speaking up more–especially when anything happens around my three-year-old daughter. Take this for instant. The other day, I took her and my stepson (13) to this cool park in the picture. We were having a pretty good time, which can sometimes be hard with a […]
