There aren't a lot of reality TV stars who I would consider role models in the way of parenting, but as far as I'm concerned, today's podcast guest, Korie Robertson, is big time #momgoals. Like most people, I learned about the Robertson family through their A & E hit television show, Duck Dynasty. Since the show began, I have been so encouraged watching the Robertson family, and especially seeing the kids grow up. I've been so impressed with choices they are making and

Hey Friends! I had to do a little podcast shuffle (switch out what I had planned to publish this week -- a story for another time -- ) and this gave me the perfect opportunity to do something I've been wanting to for a while! An all Q & A episode! 🎊 I hope to do these quarterly, so please give me feedback, and always send your questions to: [email protected] (put Q &A or "Question" in the subject line!) I love to hear from you on social media, but if you can try to send
Anyone ever had a kid who whined, lied, tattled, or complained? (🙋🏼♀️) If so, then today's episode is for you. I am so excited to share this packed, practical chat with best-selling author, Ginger Hubbard, with all of you. I especially loved talking to Ginger, because her early books, “Don’t Make me Count to Three” and “I Can’t Believe You Just Said That!” shaped my early parenting years. (Who could have guessed that I'd one day be interviewing her on a podcast?!

Tara Leigh Cobble of the Bible Recap Podcast and book joins me on the Boy Mom Podcast. Question: Have you ever been reading through parts of the Bible (you know...Numbers, for example. 😳 🤷♀️) and thought to yourself: "I wish someone would tell me WHAT in the world is going on here!" Or...(my true, exact thoughts): "I wish someone would write a daily devotional that would help me understand the ENTIRE Bible! But somehow that idea seemed too good to be true... Until
Kids today are faced with a huge range of different views on who God is (or isn't). How can they be sure who's got it right? Oh this is a difficult part of our current parenting reality, isn't it? And one we are wise to invest time and prayer into! While we've had many conversations in our family on that topic, I am so very grateful for helpful resources to make tough topics like this a little easier to tackle! I think story - especially stories from the Bible -- are the
Happy New Year!!!! And also: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to this BLOG! We just turned TEN, and that makes me a feel a little like... A LOT has happened in ten years! A lot of hard work...a few years wondering what the heck I was doing/where I was going...(nearly quitting)...Some highs, some lows, and more hard work. But also tons of blessings and fun along the way. Now, if I had more forethought...time/energy, I might have put together something really special for the occasion.
Friends, welcome to the smack-middle of December. (woah, really!?) True confession: This is about the exact week when I typically find myself morphing from the happy, care-free, "I love Christmas everything!!!!"
