A Parental Reboot

Summer is a unique season when you are a mom. There is freedom in lazy mornings, no homework, no lunches to pack, and no schedules, but you also deal with late bed times, bored kids, and no order to a day. There are a lot of mixed emotions, for us and for our kids.  The day after school got out, […]

How to Celebrate Mother’s Day…

I am going to be honest. I was having a little writer’s block this month. So when my husband suggested writing about Mother’s Day, I had to laugh. What a brilliant idea to write about a day that celebrates “my tribe”! But I have to say I have mixed feelings about Mother’s Day.  On one […]

Four Things I Am Learning from My Toddler

When my husband and I decided to have our third child, we knew that it would be a huge adjustment. We had a seven-year-old and a four-year-old. We had made it through the baby years and the terrible 2’s/3’s twice. We were heading into the early school years with our youngest. Starting over, I knew, […]

Letter to a Soon-to-be Mom

Lately in my life journey, I have been coming in contact with a lot of first-time soon-to-be moms. As a mom of three, I sometimes giggle at their apparent worry and trepidation. Which is funny, because if you had seen me as a first time mom, I would have made most of these women look […]

The Best Policy

By Kate Ward I always tell my kids to be honest no matter what. But I know as adults we don’t always adhere to this advice. We think we have good reasons to forego the truth. We don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings, we don’t want to “get into it,” or we don’t want to […]

New Things for a New Year

By Kate Ward Happy New Year! I feel like a new year for a mom is a unique thing. A part of me feels accomplishment of “getting through” another year, and the other part feels sad about the passing of time that will never be again. With kids, I feel like you are always in […]

Making the Most of the Season

by Kate Ward My husband’s grandma passed away a week ago and this weekend we attended her funeral. She was in the late stages of Alzheimer’s when she died, so it was a strange blessing. She is now whole and walking with God. There are certain things you learn from death that you can’t learn […]

Harder Than It Has to Be

By Kate Ward Being a mom, I hear myself saying things over and over to my kids. One of those phrases is “don’t make things harder than they have to be.” Whether this involves trying to brush your teeth while you tie your shoes, or not reading directions before you start your homework, there is […]

What Marriage Isn’t

This month, I celebrate 15 years of marriage. A part of me can’t believe it has been that long, and the other part of me can’t remember my life before I was married. It has truly been an adventure. It has been hard, fun, sad, frustrating, joyful, surprising, satisfying, and humbling. Like most of life, […]

What’s Saving Your Life Right Now?

I have been a mom now for almost 10 years. When I look back at the last decade, I can’t believe how meaningful my life has become. I am so thankful for God’s blessing of raising three sweet boys. So ten years ago, my number one priority became being a mom. I live and breathe […]
