So last summer, like many families, we attended the county fair. My highly active boys have already made some friends and are begging me to let them participate in the “animal scramble.” After all ALL of their friends are doing it! I ask around and find out it is a race where they get a prize if they catch an animal. Why not? Let them wear themselves out! Well come […]

So I wake up completely relaxed, stretch, I have the baby on one side & the husband on the other. So warm and cozy! I’m glad I woke up before my alarm 🙂 I grab my robe and phone look at the time and… It’s 7:52! Yikes!!!! The boys are already up, but are watching cartoons which is something they know we don’t do before school. I waste 1 full […]

Today I’m reminded of  “The Love Verse” from 1st Corinthians 13. Specifically verse 7: “It ALWAYS protects, ALWAYS trust, ALWAYS hopes, ALWAYS perseveres!” The picture above whispers to me that our boys love each other in a Godly way. Our sibling are often our first friends and I believe, if done right, they are also our best friends. My boys don’t always get along but they are inseparable! At 8 […]

So today was book character day at the library. I woke up early to brainstorm and ended up thinking that the boys would wear their Halloween costumes from last year. NOPE! They wanted to be Sonic the Hedgehog and Link from Zelda. Really? Link from Zelda! What was I to do? Well, we do have a shield and I have some leftover clown makeup so that was a start. My […]

If you are like me then the last few weeks of school are hectic. Trying to get everything done and gather up all the contact information for the kids’ friends or they “will never see them again.” This can take its toll on your married life. I think it is important for children to see your marriage thrive and not just survive. So last night I decided to surprise my […]

I was recently by myself with my 3 boys over Mother’s Day weekend. With 3 baseball games, helping a friend move, and a baby dedication it was a busy weekend! So tonight I’m taking some me time! I believe to be a good parent you need to “zero out”. That is a Rose-ism for taking all the stress good and bad and letting it all go. To zero out I […]

Who am I and what am I about? This is harder than I thought it would be to write. My name is Rose and I am about a lot of things. I am the 28 year daughter of a King and believe with all that I am, that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I am the wife of a very passionate husband who, luckily, is also my best friend. […]

I have attended home a home birth and multiple kinds of hospital births. I will say if you do have a home birth please research not only the procedure  it’s self but the staff, their plans and the insurance. Ask the hard questions and at least consult an ob about the risks you  may encounter. Some background on my experiences. I have had my 3 boys at the same hospital […]

I might not make this choice but the option should be there! “How in the world can a woman have the “right” to kill her unborn child and not have the “right” to birth at home with a Christian midwife! Shouldn’t I have the “right to choose?” Stop the unconstitutional prosecution of religious midwives! Religious Freedom applies to childbirth choices!

First I’d like to say I am a breastfeeding promoting mom all day long but I want to strangle some people there. You should be reaching out to others in love and help them! NOT judge and do the run around of read this, try this, eat this, take this see you next week. I HATE the pretense of women who had “perfect” breastfeeding experiences. They are VERY few who […]
