Aha moment!

                So today I am reading a book, "The marriage of your dreams by Rick Johnson" and I was getting frustrated because I was still at the beginning so I decided to skip a few chapters. And then I come across the chapter on respect and appreciation, which is where I decide to read from. I know for some people this seems to appear a basic foundational aspect. However for me its an aspect I greatly need to work at. I'm not perfect and quite often I stumble. In our last argument I heard that I did not show respect nor was I appreciative and for me that was baffling because I appreciate everything my husband does. Furthermore I have a high level of respect for him because he made me a promise & commitment and he has kept that promise & commitment to this day.

          Now that I'm reading this chapter, I realize that while I thought I had been expressing respect and appreciation, I had not. I had just been giving lip-service. Saying one thing while my ac…

Thanksgiving and family

        Whew! So Thanksgiving has past. Sorry I have not blogged during that time. My mom and future step dad came to visit from Chicago and we hadn't seen them in 5 months (well 9 months for my husband since he had to work while I was in Chicago back in June). One thing I can say is that I am thankful for my family. My husband, my children, my mom and her fiancee. I am so thankful for each of them and what each of them adds to my life.
        One thing I have realized during this last week is that family is so important, it doesn't matter where you are as long as you're together you will have a good time and create new memories.
        I also realized that my husband truly is my best friend and truly does have my back. Like many couples we have those  rough days. We are NOT perfect nor exempt from marital woes. However I realize that it has not been us keeping our marriage together but GOD. He has always made us see the big picture and to realize that what we do does not …

New Devotional

Hi Everyone!!! Moms..Dads...this post is for you!

           We all want our children to know God and to grow and develop a relationship with Him. I know we do. So on NetGalley, I saw the Action Bible Devotional for Kids and decided to request it. Great decision. So far my daughter loves it! She looks forward to each day's reading and answering the questions as well as the after activities it provides.

           I want to encourage all of my readers to please encourage your child(ren), nieces, nephews, cousins to start reading the bible early. Instill in them the want and need of knowing God early. Teach them who God is early so that they won't have so learn later in life after they've bumped their heads. Teach them NOW so that they will know that nothing they could ever do in life would separate them from the Lord. Teach them who Jesus really is. Don't leave your child's knowledge and future salvation up to whoever teaches them in Sunday school or leave it to cha…

For the ladies

When I was single I wanted a certain life. I wanted a family. I wanted a husband who would love me, nourishing and cherishing me. I wanted a leader, someone who wouldn't allow me to run him. Yes, I really wanted that because I know marriage is for life and I need a challenge.
          But even more so I was a mess. I didn't start getting my life together until literally a month or so before I got married. It had nothing to do with my husband and everything to do with me and what I wanted. Heck, I didn't even know my husband beyond speaking in public {you know, hi and bye} until 2 1/2 weeks before we got married!

          So I want to encourage a lot of young women who still out there dating. First off, get to know God and get in touch with yourself. How can you know what you want if you don't know Him who created you? Every time I'm on Facebook I read about a some dude who's done some girl wrong and now she's angry. And I want to ask her what di…

Election night....aftermath

In the wake of the reelection of President Obama, I go on Twitter and see the ugliness that has reared its its ugly head among supporters of President Obama and Mitt Romney.

           The first thing I notice, well at least on my timeline is the ugliness that is being spewed from self proclaimed Christians. They're angry because (1) Romney lost and (2) they believe Obama stands for abortion and gay marriage.

           The second thing I think about is that, if you are a self proclaimed Christian who are you to judge anyone or put anyone down for their beliefs, regardless to how different they are from yours?

           Last night I watched and read. And I noticed people had two main complaints that Obama's Administration was not against gay marriage and advocated women's rights which includes the right to have an abortion. Then I posed this question: Is the prohibition of gay marriage and abortion all that matters in choosing a president?

I think not. I think it's more…
