200% Is that even possible?


I have been listening to a podcast recently on my way to work by Dr. Mike Glenn, the pastor of Brentwood Baptist Church, entitled “Creating Real Marriages that Last”. He touches on everything from learning your spouses love language, to parenting your children, to being a parent to your parent when that time come. Something specifically stuck out to me last week while i was listening on my way to work. The specific episodes that stood out where entitled ” Marriage is not 50/50″ and “Renegotiating the marriage contract” Throughout these episodes he made many valid points, but these two that I am writing about are things that I hear about a lot.

We hear this statement all the time. Marriage is 50/50. Is it really? Why would you as a wife or a husband only give half of your ability and energy to your marriage and expect it to…

My Experience with Jade Bloom University

If there was a way you could learn about essential oils and did not have to pay to learn, would you do it? What if I told you that you could learn at your own pace, time, and earn free bottles of oils as you complete the courses? Sounds like something that is too good to be true. Continue reading

Blessed yet Bitter

Always, God shows us the root of our issues in our hearts, and one of the few things that He has shown me that needs changing is my bitterness. If you personally know me, I tend to conceal my bitterness even though I genuinely encourage others. But, if you don’t know me, then I am just some gal sharing a struggle on a public blog and social media. Continue reading

Unpacking Apples and Lemons

We finally moved into our first, new home from an Army move. To avoid complaining, I’ll just say that we are dealing with the after effects from the move and how unprofessional the move was compared to our past experiences. I had the weirdest feeling about how the move was going to go when I realized I could not find my fresh apples, lemons, and birth control pills. Continue reading

God’s Parenting Affirmation

It is a known fact among to us moms that raising tiny humans is a blessed challenge in itself. We try not to, but we seek affirmation from others (especially social media) to know if we are a “good mama” to our children. Continue reading

Soda Free Life

If you asked me what my favorite drink was when I was five, I would have said Dr. Pepper. That later turned into Coca-Cola; then became a love of Mt. Dew over the course of my life until my twenty-eighth year. I would always drink some form of a soda because I needed to “wake-up” or just wanted to taste of the fizz from whatever beverage I happened to be drinking. Continue reading

Mighty Fix Review- Meliora

Ever since I started my natural and organic journey a couple of years ago, I have come to notice that it is easier than I expected at times. I have to say that sometimes our budget is tight, but I use my skills to search for deals that make any purchase worth buying.

There is vast information out there that even overwhelmed me of where to start, what to do, or how to take that baby step into the “DIY green cleaning and living.” Continue reading

Leave it at the Cross

Have you ever wanted to be free, yet it seemed difficult to release the burdens or strongholds that were holding you captive? And, yet, you know that Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, our sicknesses, and our burdens. No matter how much you pray, repent, or forgive, it seems like an endless cycle that tires you, weakens you, and burdens you.  Continue reading
