I Was Emotionally Exhuasted

Four years ago, in the middle of the afternoon, I was on my way back to the salon for the evening. I got a call from Jason, saying that Dalton had crashed in moto practice and that he had for sure broken his arm and that it was pretty bad. They were headed to the […]

Pay it Forward

Last month we were busy helping with the relief efforts in Texas – going down with physical loads of supplies and urging others to donate to the cause. It was wonderful. My husband Jason and I just felt like we were supposed to go down there and help. We just felt this calling telling us […]

Financial Freedom = Time Freedom

It’s 6:15am in the morning. Our company CEO calls and asks us to meet him in 15 minutes for breakfast. We had never met the man before, and could only wonder at what he wanted to talk about. Panicked, rushed, with 2 hours of sleep and a quick shower, we ran out the door to […]

Hot Mess Mentality

Sometimes I am just so out of it – exhausted and dragging. The other day, I made a reservation online, and shortly thereafter I got a call from them and they said, “We just wanted to make sure you know we are in Roanoke, Indiana.” Nope! But thanks for the heads up!! (I’m in Texas…) […]

Don’t Wait for God

I have heard the term “waiting on God” used in several different situations before. Usually it’s from very Godly, prayerful people like myself who mean it in the same way I do. If I say, “I am waiting on God”, I mean that I have prayerfully taken my situation to Him and I have submissively […]

How do I make my marriage work?

Sometimes I just have a rough week. I feel like I’m just going through the motions. I’ve got a whole checklist of things to do, and on top of that – the car breaks down or the boys have trouble at school. Relationship problems come up. We all have those moments, when we go through […]

Non-Traditional Turkey Day

Happy Thanksgiving! Here we are, already at the end of November! Can you believe how fast this year has flown by? I am so thankful for all of the people in my life. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities and new adventures we have experienced along the way. Our Thanksgiving is not […]


We travel all the time. It seems like we are always on the road, dashing off to some new place, using wifi on the plane to get some work done, coordinating schedules at home and at school while out of town. People struggle with the idea of travelling so much for a job. They think […]

Extreme Sports Family

Wednesday did not fair well for us as a small crash turned into worse and ended in a not so great result. But this is not about his injury. This is because I feel like many of my moto mom friends want to say the same thing. We know this sport is tough and dangerous. […]

Grace Abundant

I wrote this about 6 years ago…. I decided to simply repost it here instead of trying to re-write it. I truly hope it helps someone, someone who might be in the position I was in over 20 years ago. Or someone that deals with the guilt and struggles as I do after having made […]
