It's been a great three weeks so far. Complete with tears, yelling, laughing, long nights, good nights, messes, coffee, tears of joy and gratefulness, snuggles and victories. Everyone is settling in and it's been pretty great, pretty normal and I'm trying so hard to not rush through this. I'm here once. We're only ever here … Continue reading Don’t Forget This.
I've heard it said before that, "right about when you think you're exhausted from explaining your heart/message/vision/mission - is right about the time people start getting it..." Our Lighthouse Experiment team has hit some of those thoughts and feelings over the past few months. I think I believed that because I had started The Encouraging Voice … Continue reading Do you get it yet?
All I can seem to think today is, "I want life to just be simple." It's the way it seems to keep pushing from my thoughts while quite a few feelings and situations roll within my heart and mind.

This week has been weird with the schedule. The kids started back at school for one day and then had a snow day due to temps being so low with the wind chill. Yikes! But on Thursday, their one measly day of school, I did have goals. Put away all of the Christmas decorations and … Continue reading Just Getting Started!
My grandma used to tell me, 'Just wait. Life keeps going faster." It's just hard to believe that when it already feels like it's flying by. It's become so true. With every new year, child, life change, etc. it just feels like this year was faster than last. Well, today I'm going to review what … Continue reading It’s never how we planned…
I already told her that I see it coming. I can picture it so perfect in my mind already as I stand back and view the beauty in that room. All of the Christmas lights and decorations, the round tables and buzz of laughter and conversations. These moments where we all gather and celebrate. I … Continue reading Coming to a close.
Today I posted the first encouraging video to The Encouraging Voice youtube channel since dropping all of my licenses. It'd been since the summer I think since I posted my last one and I was just dissatisfied with what I was producing.
