Friday night was a nigh to remember! A few weeks ago, I shared about the importance of taking time for your mom friends and cherishing those relationships. Thanks to the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, I had an unforgettable opportunity to host my Lifegroup for a night of worship. And it was maigcal. MercyMe is a band so close to my heart offering hope and worship to some of my darkest days. A sweet friend in my Lifegroup has also experienced a similar gift from their music with their hit “Even If.” Her daughter was diagnosed...

Mom life is hard. But, do you want to know what’s even harder? Mom friendships. Why does it sting so much worse when our mom friends walk away? I was talking to a sweet friend today who’s going through a hard season with a friend just abandoning her and their friendship. Sadly, I had something similar happen going into this past summer so I was able to share some words of encouragement. Being rejected when we were teenagers sucked, right? The need to fit in is real and it’s something I pray my girls are able to...

Summer is in full swing and this mom is exhausted trying to keep us busy and come up with fun and creative ways to keep the kids occupied and not absorbed in technology. Wizards and Werewolves by Starlux Games available now! We’re big on getting the kids outside, but when I was approached about checking out a brand new outdoor game by Starlux Games, I jumped at the chance. Wizards and Werewolves allows your kids to really immerse themselves into an experience and bring their imagination to life. I couldn’t wait to see...

With Lent starting tomorrow, I decided I wanted to come up with a way to have more conversations about this season with my kids. I’ve really tried over the last several years especially as my kids get older, to be more intentional with our time and conversations and the way we celebrate holidays. A few years ago, I shared with you all about The Story Egg™ by Star from Afar. You start this tradition on Palm Sunday and it’s a fun and interactive way to get your kids reading scripture and teaching them about the story...

If you follow me on Instagram, I shared a new product on my Insta Stories I recently came across and couldn’t wait to share with you! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I’m a mom to three kids and always looking for not just the hottest new products for moms to share with you, but telling you WHY. I’m not one to fall into the trap  of neeeing every new thing that comes on the market, but I’ll tell you what, I wish I had this termo 4-in-1 baby thermometer way before now! ‘Tis the season of flu and colds...

It’s not very often I sit through a movie and feel like they literally hit the nail on the head in many ways pertaining to real life issues and trials. It’s even less often that movie features a war story where I really feel like my life can apply to what is being said. My husband is not a war veteran. In fact, I have no ties to the war at all so going into this movie, I never thought I’d be able to relate as much as I found I could. Let me start by saying, I am a huge, huge fan of Sarah Drew and Justin Bruening. Like...

In just a few short weeks, Cirque do Soleil is bringing their newest production, Corteo to our very own Queen City! Taking a new concept to the stage for the first time, Corteo is meant to give the audience a view from the performer’s point of view in addition to seeing the performance as well.  Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical...

I’m sure most of you have heard of the Build-a-Bear “Pay Your Age Day” fiasco going down at mall’s nationwide right now. We went to our mall in Charlotte, NC this morning. I wanted to share our experience based on the things I observed and our experience. I was expecting it to be chaotic. My friend and I planned ahead as soon as we decided to go by letting the kids browse the website and making wish lists and calling our store ahead of time to learn they were opening early. However, I had NO CLUE this would be...

This post is sponsored by Stella® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. This summer, I’ve been winging it. Winging each day with the kids. Winging what we’re going to do, what we’ll eat – you name it. This afternoon, I couldn’t wait to get in my kitchen and just create. This summer, I’m all about fresh produce and ingredients and making fun and different recipes to share with my family. I’m not normally one to come up with killer original recipes… I usually leave that to...
