See Ya, 2017

In Articles/Devotions

See ya, buh-bye, and later, 2017. I’m so over you. Like really. Totally move aside. All the things and all the feels. You’ve done your thing. And 2018 is taking over like a boss.  If I could actually “speak” to…

Enough is Truly Enough

In Articles/Devotions

I fell into this hole years ago that is surely like the quicksand traps I read about. The ones that you don’t see coming and before you know it, you start slowly sinking, wondering how you missed it. Why didn’t…

Reality Check

In Articles/Devotions

When my feet hit the floor each morning, reality usually smacks me in the face. Depending on the day, it may go something like this:  head straight to the coffee pot, “do not pass go”, because the coffee is more…

History 101

In Articles/Devotions

My little one and I are on full-fledged “school’s out” schedule. Like the, “We have no clue what day it is at any point of the week. And who cares?” attitude. I’m not condoning it, but that’s how we roll…

Class is in Session

In Articles/Devotions

It’s finally May. This is no surprise to you, I’m certain. But hello?? I’m a teacher. Of 6th graders. Bless their little hearts. It’s the home-stretch of baseball. The 4th quarter of football. The last leg of the baton race….

Hit the Bullseye

In Articles/Devotions

I’m picky about some things. Probably more than just some things. If you even suggest that this sci-fi movie is well worth my time, I won’t believe you. I don’t have time for that. Come at me with even a…

The Big WHY??

In Articles/Devotions

If you are anything like me, I’m very fond of the 5 W’s:  when, where, what, who, and why. I spontaneously mark outings in my calendar. I don’t do things on a whim. It’s just not there. I don’t play…

King of the Mountain

In Articles/Devotions

I recently took a walk to the park with my little guy. The “park” is another word for his school playground. When school isn’t in session, it’s a pretty big deal to walk UP the slides, hang upside down on…

A Mother’s Confession

In Articles/Devotions

As a mother of five, I’ve often prided myself on having an unofficial medical degree, dentistry license, chauffeur business, counseling degree, and a veterinarian practice. I can also sport a striped referee shirt and whistle with the best of them….

Hail Mary in the 4th Quarter

In Articles/Devotions

I’m no football fanatic, but I do love the game. College game day, the smell of autumn leaves, sweaters, and all things pumpkin bring a joy to my soul that is deep and gives me all the feels. I’m actually…
