I used to fear my future.

I used to fear my future.

I was afraid that our family was going to fall apart. I was afraid that debt would swallow us whole. I was afraid that I was in an emotional pit that I couldn't conquer. I was afraid that I couldn't be the mom my kids deserve. At the very bottom of those fears, there was this unsettling, nagging notion that I was not living up to the potential God had given me. In a desperate moment of prayer, God told me that if I would take care of myself, He would take care of the rest. So in the midst…read more >

Hi, Pretty. Are You Plugged In?

Hi, Pretty. Are You Plugged In?

"Pretty" is one those endearing terms reserved for my best girlfriends, we've been using it since high school ... so today I'm sharing it with you.

Easiest Breakfast Casserole. Ever.

Easiest Breakfast Casserole. Ever.

Fridays are the day that every mama on the planet is just kind of done. Done with the week. Bring on the weekend. I had the house to myself for a few hours on Friday morning, so I started out to make my usual eggs for breakfast. But before I knew it, I had a full blown casserole on my hands. So shocking, sisters. Let me take a brief detour here to remind you that I am no cook. I like to follow the recipe, preferably one with as few ingredients as possible. Let's not complicate things, right?!? My creativity…read more >

Get your Fix here.  If you think about it, your nutrition is 100% of the equation when it comes to getting {and seeing} results. I've heard some people say 70%,…read more >

How I Left the Classroom {sort of} and Created a Successful Online Business

In my former life, I was a teacher, a passionate one at that. And in my opinion, if you're truly called to that profession, it never leaves you. In fact, I'm still doing that teacher thing. However, my current classroom doesn't have walls and the students are generally much larger human beings. And I'm still just as passionate as ever ... only this time there are no limits on the number of people I'm able to help. Let me explain. Something happened to my heart the second I laid my eyes on our first child ... my ambitions faded off…read more >

And as a sidenote, I believe that your nutrition is 100% of the equation. Not…read more >
