One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is to read positive and uplifting stories to the kids at church. I am excited to share a new one with them that I just got in from #OrientalTrading – The Mouse and the Miracle.

Halloween is right around the corner. Our church is taking part again in the annual Halloween outreach around our area. What this means for us, is– for about 3 hours, kids and adults from our church will put on skits, pass out candy, and enjoy fellowship with each other.
Because of that, we all, myself included, have to fuel up in order to make sure we can withstand all the time involved in our outreach project.
I am always on the go. Not only am I a mother, but I am also a full time work from home mom, a youth leader, a praise team singer, a writer, a homeschool mom, a secretary for my husband and more. Seriously — I think I need to clone myself! Thankfully, there are snacks like Jif to Go Dippers to keep me satisfied when the hunger strikes during one of my many errands I run daily.
I just returned from San Francisco last week, and I brought back a suitcase full of goodies. I shopped for all of my friends and I found beautiful sparkling coffee mugs to give to them. I didn’t just want to give them just a mug though, so I decided to fill each one with yummy Werther’s Originals Fall flavored caramels.
My daughter has taught herself over the years how to draw and just recently, she has taught herself how to paint. She has discovered a love for creating art in the most wonderful way — and for her — it is how she creates a #HappiMess. →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading

If you look at my momma and daddy and then look at all five of their children, you will notice the predominant gene in our family — red hair. My daddy tried hard to pass on his black haired gene, but only one of his kids got that — and the rest of us — well, we got my mom’s flaming red hair.
This is the year for me that I said I was going to make some big changes — and over the past couple of weeks I have really started doing that. It started last week when my husband and I went to Gulf Shores. I just decided that I am truly sick and tired of always saying –that’s something I will never try or never do. So many cool things have happened to me over the last week — and it got me to thinking about something.

Living life is something that my husband and I have always taught our kids. From the time that they were little, we have instilled in them the fact that not everyone is going to always like or agree with you. We have shown them how to be themselves and to like who they are even if the rest of the world thinks that they are weird. We have taught them what living beautifully means. For us, it is simply about loving ourselves, living and making the most of every day, and finding those special moments when you can make every little minute count.

I will never forget that day as long as I live — the day I discovered my daughter had head lice. If I close my eyes, I can still see all the headache and drama we had to go through during that time. If I had only had Licefreee during that few weeks that we battled an onslaught of head lice, I would have been in a much better state of mind.
On Saturday, we celebrated my 40th birthday. We don’t celebrate the way most people do — with a huge crowd, going out to eat, or going all out. We like having a small intimate get together with our friends or our kids, and that is exactly what we did this time around. It’s funny, because I always seem to forget to take pictures, but this year, I wanted to capture the moment.
