I Broke My Wrist

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (No Respond)

I broke my wrist/arm. Not even a good story, unless you consider clumsiness a good story. Thankfully I was at my parents when it happened because the next day my oldest son was vomiting. And the day after that was my youngest. It’s amazing how challenging life is when you take using two hands for […]

I began preparing for March break in February. Alas, March break crept up fast and […]

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life (No Respond)

A few years back I bought some fascinators – a.k.a mommy hair accessories. A huge change since mama usually buys hair pretties for Chloe, not herself. Well, I just find these things completely fascinating. I feel so glamorous – like it just completes the outfit. The only thing that would make it better is if […]


what it’s not about

Posted by Jennifer under Faith (No Respond)

Photo Credit I cried as I read a story by Michelle Lyn from A life surrendered. Then I cried as I read this: Though I struggle, it’s not about release from the struggle, but allowing Him to change me through it. Though I fail, it’s not about the mistakes I’ve made, but what He’s done […]

Last fall a friend of mine, Brianna {Heart(h) Management}, whom I have never met in real life, invited me to attend Mom Heart. I’d never heard of it and had barely heard of Sally Clarkson. On a whim, I said yes all those months ago and today I find myself boarding a plane, heading off […]
