I’m Singing In the Rain…

Have you ever tried to actually Sing in the Rain? Usually I'm a bit "froggier" during wet weather so I don't sing with as much gusto, but I'm usually singing in my head at least...

What are You Singing?

I'm just gonna be really honest - it's been awhile since I made my home sing. Lately, I've been content to just find a particular level of maintenance and call it "enough" when really, it is just barely squeaking by. sigh.

Are You Stressed Out, Mom?

I've been blessed in the past several weeks by the ministry of Cindy Rushton. I've been able to listen to some of her audio recordings, download some goodies, and am really finding my way! Her heart for the Lord (and her sweet, southern drawl) just reach out to me. She reminds me very much of… Continue reading Are You Stressed Out, Mom?

Thought Full Thursday: Settling In… Gearing Up…

Since I began my Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) journey over a year ago, actually BECOMING Keeper at Home has been quite challenging for me. First, I had to undergo a personal transformation that allowed me to understand more fully the value, the responsibility, the role that "Keeper at Home" entails.
