Marriage is A LOT!

Marriage is A LOT.That’s not a bad thing though. The things in our lives that are a lot are usually the things that last the longest and are worth every moment. As Christians, we know when it comes to marriage it’s more than the wedding, the big gown, the number of bridesmaids, and the number…

Marriage Fixes Everything

You’re probably laughing to yourself, and thinking, ‘um, no it doesn’t’! Well, you might be right about that, but you might also be kind of wrong about that. Marriage, on it’s own doesn’t fix anything. You can treat your marriage as a contract between two people or you can treat it as a covenant and…

Living on a Loan

I’ve been living my life on a loan ever since I was wee little cells in my mother’s body. Yeah, this story isn’t about finances. Believe me, you don’t want financial advice from me! I’m not great at it! However, I can tell you a bit about living on a loan because I have done…

I Hate this Most About Being Married

My husband and I are NOT the same, but we became one in matrimony. He and I are like combining lemon, and lime, and saying that’s one fruit. Yes, we’re both citrusy BUT I’m a lime, and he is a lemon. Limes are green, and smaller, whereas lemons are yellow and big. Don’t even get…

Conceived out of Wedlock

Unpopular opinion, but children deserve stability. They deserve a home. Coming from someone who had neither I can tell you it makes a world of a difference. That’s why I truly believe in having children in the bound of marriage, and not outside of marriage. There’s a reason why God calls couples who have taken…

Not in This House…

This structure annoys me a lot more than it should. This would work great in an ideal world, but in today’s world, it leaves most households miserable because ego is a thing, and people aren’t perfect. We live in a broken world so let’s not pretend this structure works for all of us. What God…

Don’t Get Married

Yep, I said it. Sorry, not sorry, but someone had to say it! There’s this unspoken reality about marriage that many people don’t talk about. As a Christian and a Catholic, I’m supposed to be all for marriage for everyone, BUT I’m not. I’m really not! I don’t believe that marriage is for everyone. It…

Not Accidental

I think one thing that is clear to me by now is that my story isn’t one with lots of flowers and sparkles, and I’m completely fine with that. Know why? It’s because I’ve worked hard to be the person I’m today. It’s because I know there’s nothing in the universe that happens by accident….

Dear Mom,

I was too young and naive to understand, and to this day, part of me is still too young, and naive to understand. I will never understand how you did it, but I will spend the rest of my life being thankful that you did. I will also spend part of the rest of my…

Broken but Intentional in My Brokenness

I’m that woman who is planning to have an intentional pregnancy. Because of my parents, I’m that girl who wants to make sure my children know that they’re wanted. One day you wake up and realize you’ve been the most authentic you’ve ever been. Not because you wanted to be, but because it was expected…
