Father's Day is almost upon us and if you're anything like me you're scrambling at the last minute to come up with an awesome gift idea. My husband doesn't so much enjoy gifts as much as he enjoys experiences....
We’ve all heard that making mom friends is like dating, right? And we all know how incredibly difficult it is to find friends and keep them (can I get an AMEN?). But how do we even start the process...
Date night. It’s that special night you get to wear a cute outfit with non-mom friendly shoes and paint the town with your significant other. You can venture to a new restaurant that doesn’t have a kids menu. After...
I sat there staring at my phone. Should I text her? Maybe if I call her. Or should I just not do either? I found myself feeling torn and not knowing what to do. I probably stared at my...
The mother-daughter relationship: to many it’s very special—irreplaceable even. For several women, their moms are the ones who teach them everything about love, life, and childrearing. Moms are the ones we turn to when we need to cry over...

A Facebook friend photographed two pages from a book she was reading and posted the image along with a pithy question. Who knew prayers could weaken faith? My interest was piqued. I mean, whether you pray or not, or claim to have...
