Lest you think I have quit cooking altogether, I thought it was time for a recipe post! And not just any recipe...this is sooooo good. You should plan to make it, like, tonight. You might remember that recently I was in Southern California visiting my son at Westmont College, and making the rounds at friends' homes. It was so much fun! I love California for many reasons, only one of which is eating all of the amazing, healthy foods there.
When you hear the word LENT, what comes to mind? Perhaps you have observed Lent for years, or you typically give something up (fast) for Lent. Or, if you're like a lot of us, you might have always thought of Lent as something merely "religious"... or like an old fashion ritual that is no longer relevant. But in the past few years I have noticed that Lent has become more and more of a thing...something people are talking about, focusing on, and really embracing. And I
Moms need exercise is Part IV of the What Moms Need Most series. Find the intro with links to all posts in the series here. Hey Mom: I'm looking at you. Yes you, the one who is overwhelmed with kids and work and bills and a home. You, who feel stretched and strained and so very tired. And you -- the one who hates exercise?

A special podcast and a timely announcement! Today's podcast episode is a little different...It may not be specifically about raising boys, but I think it is a topic which is relevant to just about every mom I know! :) This is a big part of my personal journey, and something I am super passionate about!

Motherhood is a season when we want so much to be present with our kids. To give them our full focus and to be free to laugh and play and run and wrestle with these little gifts. We want our minds to be concerned with what concerns our families. We want to plan meals and days around them. This is what we dream motherhood will be like. So, when a mom is preoccupied with her self… when she is constantly thinking about what she eats or how she looks…whether she has
I am so super excited about this week's Boy Mom Podcast episode. I am sharing an interview with an author I've been a fan of for a long time, Drew Dyck. After reading Drew's most recent book: "Your Future Self will Thank you: Secrets of Self Control from the Bible and Brain Science," I dreamt of how great it would be to have him on the podcast to talk about BOYS AND SELF CONTROL.

Today's Boy Mom Podcast episode is a super special one. Author, speaker, expert girl-mom (!) and my friend...Kari Kampakis joins us for a really fun and insightful chat about raising BOYS!

She and her husband are doing the good, hard work of raising their four girls to be young women of character and faith. In
