About Me

My photo
I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

It's a brand new day! It's a brand new year!

I've seen many blogs this morning about the "one word" for the new year.
Mine is contentment.
Can you really say "I will be striving for contentment" ?? lol - striving sounds anti-content hmmmm.....
My goal is to show my children contentment.
For them to see in my very actions a heart of contentment...not "settling for less" but "Happy with whatever life holds".

Some of our "goals" this year are:
Read together out of Psalms and Proverbs each day with the kids.

"PLAY" more together - schedules are important but they are only small for a short while!

I pray that I will have loving expectations of my children (not HARSH JUDGMENTAL ones....because that is NOT who I long to be...and it is NOT what I long to teach my children!)

I want to yell less..... I tell my children not to yell, not to call names, not to judge each other - do I do what I'm telling them not to do???

I want to start each day asking my husband "What can I do today that will help you out?" - okay he may have a stroke or think I've been taken over by aliens but hey...he'll get used to it right? :)

So that's the beginning of 2011 for me :)
I am back on my super fabuloso diet - just until February when our family goes on vacation....then...who knows maybe we'll be looking ahead to baby #7?!

Welcome to 2011 blogger friends!
It's gonna be a great year!
Thank you Lord!! I am TRULY grateful!

With all my heart~


  1. phil 4:11... for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances....

    yes contentment is something to be learn,I always thought that chapter 4 of phil was the best one to teach, for learning that particular skill

  2. Michelle, for your comment about submission, do you think I was leading women to think that they should control their husband????

    If I came across like that I will make the corrections!!!! Because beautiful submission is nothing like that!!!!

  3. Thanks for the reply, the other blog and I are like apple and radishes, so I decided to take myself off of it, we are both food and together might taste gross!!!!

    My Papa's home and the visionary husband's post are going to be live on my blog later this week
