I Have a Teenager at Home!

by

I was a teenager in the 80’s. My concerns then were stiffening my hair with Aquanet Hairspray, listening to Janet Jackson’s songs on my Sony Walkman and reading about Craig and Darcy in my Sweet Dreams pocket books. My parents, particularly my mother, didn’t have a hard time disciplining or raising me and my younger brother… Oh, […] Read more…

Sleeping like Angels

by

When we moved out of my parents’ home a couple of years ago, we specifically looked for a two-bedroom house to rent.

We placed their beds in […] Read more…

Two Peas in a Pod

My husband and I are blessed to have a boy and a girl. When I was pregnant with Coby, we prayed that it would be a boy. God blessed us with a happy baby boy. The second time we found out we were having another child, we again prayed for a girl to complete the […] Read more…

Taming the Tongue

by

The greatest influence our children would have is us, their parents. We taught them how to talk and guided them as they started to walk. It’s funny when I see kids walk and talk like their parents. It’s like looking at mini versions of Mom and Dad. Not only do we pass on physical traits […] Read more…
