About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

What do you hope to pass on to your children?

What are your top 3 priorities for raising your children?
Now are your day to day actions working toward those top 3 priorities or are you getting distracted, side tracked with life? Our church is doing a series right now based on our pastors new book "Weird" challenging us as Christians how are you living your life? What choices are you making day by day? Craig Groeschel challenges us to be "Weird" because normal isn't working! I know that, and you know that just look around you, "normal people are stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted. Many of their relationships are, at best, strained and, in most cases, just surviving." (That was an excerpt from the jacket cover of Craig Groeschel's new book).
On Good morning America this morning they did a segment at how parents are pushing their kids as early as 18 months to try to train them to be the next "great sport prodigy"
The parents even have these very young kids the news report said practicing up to 3 hours a day. Our actions tell our kids what we value! I have a good friend named Katie who posted the other day the most touching post about how her and her husband have decided to raise their 4 children, it stood out in my mind at what stark "opposite" approach her and her husband have chosen to parent in comparison to the news report this morning. Some might even dare to call them "weird" but I believe it is a good kind of "weird" one that would please God. Go check out Katie's Blog C'es La Belle 'Vie. Leave Katie a note of encouragement. (Trust me you won't want to miss this post!)


  1. Great post about what looks to be a very good book. Thanks for directing me to Katie's Blog. Very nicely said!

  2. As "Michael's Mom" I like the aspect of an anti-normal movement. I've always argued that everyone has a little weird in them, some are just better at hiding it.
