let's talk about

real life as a mom and a wife. 

here's what I know:

Parenting and marriage have to be two of the most challenging tasks I’ve ever undertaken! Parenting and marriage have brought out both the best and the worst of me and make me lean on God more any anything else.

God allows parenting and marriage to serve as a candid portrait of who I really am inside. How about you?

Am I dealing with selfishness? Anger? A lack of grace? Impatience? It comes out in my parenting and in my marriage. And frankly, some days it's really humbling to look into this "mirror." 

Yet when we can be honest about those imperfections and let them teach us to lean on God for inner transformation, that’s when we see radial changes in our relationship with our spouse and our children.

About marriage:

Yes, you can have a thriving marriage in every season! Even if your relationship isn't perfect (mine's not). Let's talk about how to make it happen.

About parenting:

Let's discover together what it can look like to have close relationships with our kids and be the parents we long to be. No Pinterest-perfect images necessary.
