A Prayer For My Kids


Dear Lord, 

I love the kids you’ve blessed me with raising. Each one has their very own personality, likes & dislikes. Each one has their very own way of doing things. So different, yet so much alike.

Father help me to be the best type of mother for them. A mother that is patient with them when it seems that they will go on forever telling that *SAME* story all over again. Help me Lord to see YOUR forgiveness of me in their eyes when they have done something they shouldn’t have. Help me Lord to lift them up in LOVE and not talk from a place of anger. Help me to see that they are still babies and even after that, human. 

Although these 3 beauties aren’t from my body they are from my heart. Help me Lord to remind them each and everyday that they are loved beyond measure. Lord help them to see that although I’m not the mother that birthed them they will always have a home, wherever I am. Father help to open their hearts and realize that no matter what they’ve done their parents will always love them.

The world is a scary place. Protect my children from those that wish to do them harm; whether that is family or friends. Help me teach them Lord that they should only look to you for approval. I know that they will be tempted to go astray, but right their path Lord.

I know there will be times that I let them down or disapoint them. I am human and make mistakes daily. I’m not here to be their friend, but to raise them up according to your will. I’m here to make sure they bloom and grow into the little people I can already see on the inside. 

Thank you Lord for your grace. Your master plan. Your beautiful gift of forgiveness. Please keep my kids safe and watch over them each time they leave my sight. 

In Jesus Name,



It’s Time To Bloom & Grow


For a long time now I’ve been after myself to start new. To try to create new habits. To work on a healthier and happier me. To BLOOM & GROW!

I’ve always made excuses. I’ve put it off. I’ve become the Queen Of Procrastination…& now the time has come for me to make some big changes.

A lot of the time I’m the type of person that puts every one else first. As a fulltime hands on (step)mom of 3 and a wife to a very outdoorsy/outgoing guy, I usually put myself on the back burner. Not on purpose, but because of all the hustle around the house there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. (Which is WHY I’m beginning this blog at nearly midnight…I rest my case! lol)

This change isn’t because of New Year nostalgia. I’ve been preparing for this for a long time. I guess it’s God pushing me to bloom and grow, for Him, for myself, and for my family. Stay tuned!
