10 Christian Books to Nurture Your Marriage in 2017

I’ve always loved books. Growing up, if I wasn’t outside playing soccer, you could find me curled up on the couch with a book in my hand. My parents would frequently joke that they were going to go broke trying to get me new books!

Makeover Your Morning Self-Care Routine in 5 Easy Steps

If you’re anything like me, you may feel like your mornings are kind of stressful and rushed. It’s hard to get up and get ready to go in the mornings, help your husband, take care of the littles. Whatever your morning routine entails, it’s hard work!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a mission to make my mornings different.  I want to learn to take better care of myself so that I can take better care of my family and others.

My time in the mornings is really limited, as I’m sure is the case for you, but I’ve found that I have about 30 minutes of down time between when my husband leaves for work and when my daughter wakes up.
