What Motherhood Means To…Beth

Motherhood to me is one of the most important and fulfilling aspects of my life. I mother with my whole heart and fiercely try to remember the gifts that have been placed in my life.

Our journey into motherhood was not the easiest, yet, without making light of what we went through, I now understand why all the events needed to fall the way they did. It has given me a stronger purpose to be their mom.

A Precious Moments Easter + Giveaway!

Easter is mere days away, and it seems everyone is in preparation mode. In this household there will be gift baskets, egg decorating, a special dinner menu, and we’ll be attending the (extra packed) church service this weekend.

All things I look forward to, but I’ve also been in search of ways to better emphasize the importance of this holiday to my girls.

Don’t get me wrong, bunnies and treats and egg hunts are fun, but as a celebration of the day Jesus rose from the dead, Easter means so much more. It symbolizes forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving power!!

It’s a time to contemplate, mourn and rejoice, and this year my girls and I have been reading My Easter Bible Storybook by Precious Moments to help illustrate what this day is truly all about.

I’m 5 Now!

My Dearest Alexandra,

It’s been a couple weeks but I still can’t believe you’re 5! This is a major milestone to me, and it seems to be significant for you as well. 

I’ve heard you enthusiastically exclaim “I’m 5 now!” to anyone with ears to hear. Whether it be friends, family or strangers, you’re proud to be this age and you want everyone to know it.

What Motherhood Means To…Jehava

I am a mother to 3 boys. Their ages are 11, 9 and 3.

I became a mother at 20 and it was the biggest blessing I could have ever asked for. It took me from a self –centered life to constantly caring and thinking about another individual.

This changed my perspective on the entire world.

How to Make a “Piece Offering” with EDWARDS® Pie

Peace: a state of harmony between people or groups; freedom from strife.

It’s safe to say that there’s a lot of unrest surrounding us these days. Whether it be differing political views, racial tension, debates over hot topics, or even controversy in movies, peace is not the easiest to come by. 

While I have my views and opinions regarding all of the above, there is one place that peace matters the most to me.

That is inside my home.

It isn’t always easy to keep the peace at home, especially when our children are being disruptive and disobedient, or when my husband and I don’t see eye-to-eye. But as we learned over the weekend, something as simple as a slice of pie can help bring you back together again.

This is where EDWARDS® pies come in.
