Everyone Told Me, I Didn’t Sign This Part of the Contract

12th July 2013 | 0 Comments

I remember after my first daughter was born.  Everyone—and I mean everyone—that I can think of told me to enjoy it now because it “goes by fast”.  I took their advice seriously.  I enjoyed being a mother.  I enjoyed my first daughter so, so much.  Remember that post way back when about the things I […]

I was speaking with a couple of my friends a few weeks ago and we began talking about our bodies. You know how the conversation goes…”you wouldn’t want to see me in a swimsuit”. Those of us who have had children understand what I am talking about. I would describe my physical appearance as something […]

Learning Leadership

13th July 2010 | 2 Comments

Sometimes as a mom I feel like I am being led around by my day, moving from one thing to the next, putting out fires. I have a feeling of being behind or unproductive. Sometimes at the end of the day I am not able to come up with one thing that I did that […]

Butterfly Inspiration

2nd June 2010 | 3 Comments

Inspiration is a funny thing. It can come from the most unexpected things, in the most unexpected ways. My next to the oldest daughter Emma has recently taken a fancy to butterflies. She worked hard to earn a butterfly catching net, and has been busily catching and studying butterflies. One day a few weeks ago, […]

Husbands and Heartstrings

4th May 2010 | 4 Comments

I have learned a LOT about marriage, and what it takes to have a not so happy one in the last twelve years. I didn’t think I was having a not so happy marriage. I thought my marriage was just fine. I was busy taking care of the children, the house, life at home. Thinking […]

Dear Reader,

I received a wonderful surprise in my e-mail inbox this morning. A comment from someone who found my blog while searching for information about nobility in womanhood and joy in motherhood. This dear reader reminded me why I started Women As Mothers in the first place. This website was founded because of my desire to […]

It’s Been Too Long!

31st August 2008 | 0 Comments

If anyone is still reading this blog I think it has been since April that I wrote last. I guess that I am in a learning curve right now, and I will hopefully get to the sharing part of that curve some time. I did have one bit of insight that I wanted to share. […]

And Then There Were Seven

13th March 2008 | 2 Comments

I was very surprised but excited to find that I am expecting my seventh child! Thankfully my morning sickness hasn’t been as bad as I have had with some of my other children. Although I still feel pretty icky. I know that morning sickness is a good sign that things are developing healthily inside, and […]

Moving Adjustments

21st January 2008 | 2 Comments

As I am sure you can imagine, moving is a big adjustment. Especially for children. So far, my children seem to be adjusting pretty well. Texas is a wonderful place and we are very happy here. The children have struggled with missing friends thus they are on the phone with them almost weekly. Other than […]

Thanksgiving and Texas

4th December 2007 | 2 Comments

Well, I made it! I cannot believe the amazing journey it was to get here. I am still frankly dazed and stunned at how quickly and smoothly it all went. I had an outpouring of love and support that was unprecedented. I feel so inadequate as to describe all the service that went into getting […]
