I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.


hope for when they’re older …

Can I admit I secretly enjoyed having her in a “bubble” where I didn’t have to worry about a big-ol-world eating her up out there??

Cuz now she has friends, she’s going out, her curfew is 12:00 {yikes!}, and this weary momma is worrying!!

Join me at Hope For the Weary Mom today as I share a few thoughts on the weariness of parenting older children.

    We are considering homeschooling this year & am anticipating similarities with closeness, then a letting go. Thanks for writing about the feelings associated with all of this! Blessings to you as you trust God & your daughter. :)

      ahhh … advice before we start!! i would say the most important thing is to let them know you “hear” them. they can come to you with ANYTHING and you’ll listen objectively. that you’re a “safe” place for them to come. i also lean on the scripture {proverbs 22:6} that says, “train them up in the way they should go and when they’re old they won’t depart from it.”
