How To Find Time With God Through Motherhood

Motherhood is beautiful. Motherhood is exhausting. You feel stretched in so many areas. You want to be the best mother you can possibly be, and you know that includes finding time with your Heavenly Father. But, you see the time flitting away and wonder how in the world you can fit it all in. At the end of the day, you drag your exhausted body into bed and whisper a quick prayer before falling asleep. You want more. You want to spend more time with Him, but how?

Today I am blogging over at “Me and My Soldierman,” where I share 5 ways you can find time with God through the busyness of motherhood. I hope you’ll head on over and join me! Below is a sneak peek preview of that post:


You’re lying in bed and streams of sunlight seep through the blinds and stroke your face. You smile and stretch. Looking at the clock, you are happy to see that you have an abundance of time to spend in God’s Word. You reach over and grab your Bible and journal from the nightstand . . .

Oh! Not how your morning goes? I imagine you’re sitting there thinking, “WHO is she talking about?!”

Let’s try this again . . . Continue reading

Baby Bump: 30 Weeks

Baby girl gave us a scare two weeks ago. I ended up in the hospital with horrible pre-term contractions. We thought for sure that she was going to come early. Thankfully, she is still cooking for a bit longer. We’re just taking it one day at a time. We made it to the first goal of 30 weeks, so the next goal is 32 weeks. Until she comes, I’m supposed to rest. Doing so is kind of difficult with three rambunctious boys and us moving in a few months. There is so much to do! I am beyond thankful that my mother-in-law has decided to come down and help until baby girl in born. Her being here has been a huge help and has helped relieve a lot of stress!

Staycationing In North Carolina {It’s Possible!}

Today I am blogging over at Hope N. Griffin: Finding Joy In Everyday, where I am joining up for a military staycation series that she has put together.

With three young children and another on the way, vacationing has become a bit more difficult over time. Have you ever tried riding in a van for 9+ hours with a 4-year old, 2-year old, and 1-year old, all the while being pregnant? No? I don’t recommend it. Adding to the challenge of vacationing with young children is the expense of traveling long distances. So, to cut down on expense and extended driving time, we’ve learned the art of “staycation” trips.

Talk to anybody who is stationed at or lives near Camp LeJeune, and they will tell you that fun family-friendly activity spots are scarce. We know this from personal experience. We have been stationed there for several years now. But, just as the old saying goes, “It is what you make it.” So, our family decided we were going to figure out a way to have fun without having to travel too far. Believe it or not, there actually are some really fun and educational places to go around here. There are five, in particular, that we love. Read more . . .

I am so excited to be sharing this post with you all! Ever since my husband and I decided to take the plunge into the cloth diapering world, we’ve been looking for ways that we can cut back on costs for supplies and whatever else we need to successfully cloth diaper our little ones.

By God’s grace, we already saved a bunch of money through a girl at church, who sold to us (for a very good price) several cloth diapers, liners, a wet bag, and a diaper sprayer. We were beyond excited! We will still need to buy more diapers and are in the process of working on getting cloth wipes, but so far we’ve been saving a lot. After getting the diaper sprayer, Continue reading
