Don’t Blink…Seriously, Don’t

When your kids are little, and so not independent, you feel like you will be wiping hinnies, bathing, feeding, cleaning, and refereeing forever. I remember being so overwhelmed at times.  Trying to keep up with 3 little boys and all their antics was no small thing.  The exhaustion is only a short memory away. As a mom you spend your day and dare I say life, giving …

I love to travel and I love adventure, but sometimes the thought of long road trips with kids can make me panic. Mostly because my kids can barely handle a 30-minute car ride to Tyler!

Why You Should Pray For Patience
Why You Should Pray For Patience
Grace K!DS

If you grew up anywhere around the church, or maybe even if you didn’t but just knew a well-meaning person that liked to hand out random popular saying, you probably have heard something along the lines of “Don’t pray for patience!  You won’t like what God will put you through to teach you!” “Don’t pray for patience!  You won’t like what God will put you through to teach you!” I always giggled when I heard this and thought, “It must …
