I don't want to get out of bed. Fixing breakfast for my kids is not done in kindness, but with harsh words and a frustrated spirit. And my patience level for whining is completely non-existent. In short, mom burnout is hitting hard. Now I could try and analyze what brought this burnout on. It could... Continue Reading →

They say that music is a universal language. Every culture has their own style and in many of those cultures, history is passed down through song. Music has been a huge part of my life.

Thankfully, I was given some really good suggestions, the first of... Continue Reading →

I was having a really bad day. I had let my imagination run wild and it took me to a dark place. It took me to a place of doubt. I questioned everything. I doubted my husband's love for me, my abilities to meet his needs. I questioned whether I was doing the right thing... Continue Reading →
