Everyone’s Voice Matters

When the national anthem for our nation is played, I stand and salute the flag. I place my hand over my heart and pay respect to the sacrifice that was made by our countries soldiers so that I can live a life relatively free and unhindered. I enjoy this freedom, a lot. My children are being raised in a nation that affords them a great opportunity. To me, the flag and the national anthem are a symbol of that freedom.  Continue reading “Everyone’s Voice Matters”

Don’t Stand Down

I am about a week away from releasing my first e-book and I couldn’t be more excited. I have been working on this, off and on, since the first part of the year and it is finally done. “What is this book that you speak of”, you might ask? It’s a parenting model called How To Raise Your Kids Without Ruining Them. In this book, we will be taking a look at all of the small mistakes (or at least ten of them) that we make when it comes to raising our children. One of the biggies is simply giving in on discipline. Your children are going to challenge you constantly with the rules that you establish. Do not back down on this. This is super important. Continue reading “Don’t Stand Down”

7 Ways to Start to Value Yourself

This post originally appeared on Possibility of Change and was written by Ulenda Myburgh. I thought it was an interesting article. While I do believe that parts of this article are true, we have to be careful not to also make an idol of self, though, that is not necessarily the point of the article either. The religious ideals that are possibly insinuated by some statements within the article do not necessarily line up with mine. However, the concept of self-love and self-care very much do. Give it a read and comment below. Continue reading “7 Ways to Start to Value Yourself”

War of Change

Every person will make frequent changes over the course of their lives, hopefully for the better of both themselves and their social surroundings. This is the way of life. We learn and we change to adapt to our surroundings and then we affect our surroundings based upon the changes that we make. This, in turn, becomes the catalyst for someone else’s change and the process goes on forever. People changing people changing people.  Continue reading “War of Change”

How to love your spouse…

Last week, Elisa and I had a fight. I’m not going to go into the details of the dispute. Needless to say, I was the cause (as usual) and required grace on her part as I learn how to be more the person that she needs me to be. This is an annual thing. About once a year, we get into a spat over something (thankfully, it is never the same thing… progress there.) and it typically takes us about three or four days of not talking to discover that we really don’t like to fight with each other before we reconcile.  Continue reading “How to love your spouse…”

Hard Transitions

When I was 18, my father kicked me out of the house over a dispute in regards to a room being painted and who’s responsibility that it was. At the time, in my youthful stupidity, I was convinced that I was right. While painting the room would be an excellent way for me to contribute, as a legal adult, to the family while I continued to live there for free, my mind was convinced that my father was equally responsible for the room because he refused to work and sponged off of my mother.  Continue reading “Hard Transitions”

Decluttering the Kitchen

Do you ever walk into your kitchen, look around and think to yourself, “I don’t even know where to start with this room?” Do you have more dishes than you can put into your cabinets? Does your kitchen table serve as the drop-off spot for all the things that nobody wants to put away? Are your possessions simply outgrowing the space that you have provided for them? If so, you have come to the right place. Continue reading “Decluttering the Kitchen”
