A Decade of Mothering

Today marks the 10th Birthday of our firstborn son. 
His first decade of life.
Ten years of being a stay-at-home mom. 

He's grown up so much.
He has such a passion for life. 

In these first ten years of his life we have learned many many things. 

I can only hope and pray that in the next ten years we will grow in wisdom and grace 
and in our love for the Lord and each other. 

In God's perfect timing, I finished my first book this month. It has several stories about things I've learned in this last decade of mothering. I'd be honored if you'd pick up a copy and give it a quick read. I pray you'll be blessed.

Mother's Day Giveaway

One of my favorite apps for a smartphone is Flipp. It shows sales circulars just like in the newspaper but allows you to tap and circle things you like and organizes them on a list by store and expiration date. The best part is it's free. Get it at the Apple Store or on Google Play. For Mother's Day they are giving away a chance to win a Disney Cruise for your family. Click below to enter. And if you win, take me with you!  ;)

Good Luck! And Happy Mother's Day!
