Roadtripping as a Family of Six

Want something that will save your sanity? Audiobooks. No, really. Audiobooks. My kids LOVE them. But usually when we are road tripping they are on some sort of a device whether it be an iPad, kindle, or Nintendo DS. So it’s just my husband and me. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a great guy to…

Are You a Mediocre Wife?

Because I sure am.   I’m currently reading “The Excellent Wife” by Martha Peace and it’s my second read through. The first time I enjoyed it and like any good book filled to the brim with brilliant tidbits of information, I need to give it a second go. One thing I’m quite sure of is…

Bad Day Makes a Bad Mom?

Does having a bad day mean being a bad mom? I don’t know about you, but I struggle (to THE MAX) with being a homemaker. It’s a mindset I have to battle daily because it just doesn’t come naturally to me. I can blame it on whatever sounds good, feels good, or rationalizes well. But…

Our relationship to G-d through prayer is extremely important as mothers and even more important as believers.   Here’s the bible study I’ve been doing. Mostly on Wednesdays because that seems to be my most stressful day of the week. This one is the first of several in “Your Relationship With G-d” and the topic…

Why I Still Need Analog Tools

And you should, too. We are, by today’s definition, a large family. We aren’t Duggar large, but we can be a basketball team with one on the bench. To me, that’s large. We’re a family of 6. SIX! That’s a small number by itself, but when it’s a group of people in one house that…

The Lost Art of Ironing and Other Savvy Skills

Is there anything more subtle than the art of homemaking? When you think about it, women that stay home with their children (or stay home without having any) are kind of like the unsung heroes of humanity. I don’t know about you, but my 5month old, 4 year old, 7 year old, and 8 year…
