I really don’t enjoy cooking. I feel like maybe I should, but I don’t. I’m a stay at home mom, but with four kids, homeschooling, and a new business, I really don’t have much time (or energy) to cook. One of the ways that I save myself time and money in the kitchen is by […]

I always thought I’d go places. I finished my undergraduate degree in three years and my graduate degree in two, all while working and paying my own way. At age 23 I was teaching university students older than me. By age 24, I’d married my college sweetheart, bought a house, and landed a great, well-paying […]

Many parents think that vaccinating their children for a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is encouraging them to have sex. I want to share with you today why I can say with […]
Making dinner has always been important to me. Making sure I have a freshly prepared and healthy meal for my family on the table every night is even more important to me. I have friends who are shocked that I cook every night. They think it must be really time consuming. Additionally, having a different […]
Last week my husband and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary. We’re not breaking any record books yet, but in the last four years we have done a whole lot of living. Two houses. Two babies. New jobs and supporting two careers. A lot of change in a short amount of time. For the most […]
