the family manager creed

The other day, I picked up a few books at Barnes & Noble. I’m so excited to dive into them, and I just started reading “The Busy Mom’s Guide To A Happy Organized Home” by Kathy Peel. I’m still in the Introduction, but I came across something I have to share with you. The author hasContinue Reading

morning reading :: Ecclesiastes 7:21-22

Most Easter traditions include a large family feast. Growing up, that was my family’s tradition. This year, my husband & I took a break from that tradition. After Church, we took our kids to the Kansas City Zoo, and my parents drove down and went with us. There were a multitude of reasons for whyContinue Reading
