A Day in the Life: Leigh Ann {A Work-at-Home Mom Relying on Grace}

By Leigh Ann Dutton, Contributing Writer It had been a long night. I made it 30 years without pulling an all-nighter. But we were down to the wire, and we had to get the Fruit of the Spirit Curriculum for Toddlers to market on time. It was 5:30 a.m. before I crawled into bed for a prayerful couple of hours of sleep before my children woke from a full night’s rest ready for a new day.

A Day in the Life: Erin {work-at-home, part-time homeschooling mom of 3 girls}

  By Erin Odom, Contributing Writer This is the 3rd year for me to participate in the Keeper of the Home Day in the Life series (time flies!), and, at first, I was just going to post on our typical daily routine.  After all, in both 2012 and 2013 I posted on a chaotic day–and maybe you all are tired of hearing that from me.  But then I realized: You know what? That’s real life. And I want nothing more than to be real with you […]

A Day in the Life: Rachel {Jam-Packed Busy Mom of 3}

By Rachel Marie, Contributing Writer I’ve been a mom for 7 years now and in no way am I am expert, but I am getting much better at this gig than I was when I first became a mom. A few weeks ago we hosted small group at our own home for the first time and I was amazed by how young, yet grown up the other couples were.

15 Strategies for Eating Well & Avoiding Take-Out During Busy Seasons

I think I’ve finally learned how to keep serving our family real, whole foods, even when life is busy and I don’t feel like I have time to cook properly.  Every once in a while, when we have one of those days (you know the ones), my sweet husband will offer that we should order take-out. Tempting as it is some days, I’ve found myself telling him “No, it’s all right. I can pull something together just as fast, and much cheaper.” For example, last week, during the […]
