My Confession

MY CONFESSION: As thankful as I am for the new life (we will welcome our third child this summer) that’s been given to our family, I have been overwhelmed. Very. Overwhelmed. I have struggled the last couple days with thinking ahead. I feel incapable to have two toddlers and a newborn all the while going back to school, continuing to serve in the local church, and keeping up with things here at home. God is so sweet, though, because when {Read More}

Freedom to Thrive

*Affiliate links included. Can I just say that most days I feel as if I’m holding on by a thread? I’ve told my husband often that I feel I can hardly keep my head above water. I have a running to-do list that never seems to get anything checked off but has more additions each passing day. I think my floor was last mopped five months ago by my mother-in-law while I was on best rest. I have to open {Read More}

More Facebook, Please!

Currently, my involvement on social media is pretty limited. You won’t regularly find the latest thing my kid said, an exercise selfie, or what I’m having for dinner. There is nothing wrong with sharing those things. That just isn’t what I think to do in the moment. I am actually trying, though, to share more {Read More}

Your Titus 2 Calling – Yes, Your Calling

*Affiliate links included.  “Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.” ~ Titus 2:3-5 Oh, how this {Read More}

4 Tips to Decluttering Children’s Stuff

Do you ever get overwhelmed by all of the stuff your children accumulate? As a young mom with two kids it is very easy to get overwhelmed by all of their stuff. One of the ways I have learned to deal with the accumulated blessings is to put things where they belong and hold loosely to things. Our children receive lots of wonderful gifts from toys to clothes. We feel so blessed but also know that our home can only {Read More}

Game Day Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Game days hold nostalgic feelings for my husband. It was a big event in the Hughes house growing up, and he still enjoys celebrating a big game with food to this day. In our house, the sports seasons have recently begun and generally last all the way until March. Game day food is a fun way to keep the good times rolling throughout the fall, winter and spring! My husband’s favorite game day dish is buffalo sliders. You will love {Read More}

Pumpkin Patch Parable Tradition

Living in the early stages of parenthood, Les and I have made a priority of creating traditions that our children will enjoy, but more importantly turn their focus to the Lord. At only 18 months old, our daughter was far too young to understand what was being read, but we felt like there are still some valuable traditions that we want to create. One evening my husband and I took Lily Page, our daughter, outside and read her a book {Read More}

Showing Compassion to the Unreliable

  We all face it at some point or another… someone has yet again disappointed us. What are we to do with that? Are we to cease placing hope in said person? Are we to pretend as if nothing ever happened and move forward? I still have plenty of growing in this area, so I am far from having all the right answers. What I am learning, however, is to set realistic expectations while still extending grace and mercy. Both are {Read More}

Why Me Time Is Not Selfish

I have learned a lot in the past year as I struggled and strived through the first year of motherhood. It has been filled with exciting moments as well as those times when I have had to dig into the Lord’s strength. I either have nothing left to give or am tempted to give a fleshly response when encountering frustration. This past year has stretched me exponentially. However, one of the most valuable things I actually have “learned” has had {Read More}

Faith at Full Strength

Often times my faith does not “feel” as if it’s operating at full strength.  I am up to my nose in dirty diapers and dirty dishes, and working a to-do list that never ends.  If I keep my sights solely on those things, then it can become easy to drift.  My faith can only run at full strength if my thoughts, actions, words, and heart are set on Christ.  Living faith at full strength means giving all my small moments {Read More}
