• How to Stop Being Overwhelmed with Disorganization for Your Large Family

    As a mom of seven, I hardly get time to brush my teeth, let alone read. But when I saw the description for Take Back Your Time by Morgan Tyree I was like WOAH. Hold up. I need to stop and make time to read this.  But how does one make time to read when one has NO TIME to read!? Well…there is a truth I’ve learned and it’s this: We MAKE time for those things we think are important. My life had gotten majorly unmanageable. The house was a wreck (not to mention my spiritual life), my kids were on devices for way too many hours a day and I was exhausted with…

  • How to Deal with Disrespectful Teens or Teen Attitude

    Oh, the teen years. Do you remember when you were a teenager? Sometimes I still FEEL like a teenager…so, it’s hard to believe I HAVE teenagers! With five girls and two boys, I KNOW how difficult it is to deal with disrespect. It’s DIFFERENT from sheer disobedience because you can’t always pin it down. It just smells…like wrong. That’s actually what I tell my kids, “I don’t know where the funk is coming from, but I can SMELL it all over you.” I do a lot of circular hand motions to drive home my point. Disrespect can come in the form of: tone of voice slamming doors huffing and puffing telling…

  • 7 Positive Steps to Take for Your Marriage While You Are Pregnant

    As I waddled around Target, pregnant with baby #6, all I could think about was ‘When am I going to have my body back?’ My feet ached, I couldn’t sleep well, and indigestion commonly came to visit. But pregnancy doesn’t come without its perks. When people saw me coming, the moved out of the way, opened doors for me and told me how good I looked pregnant. As someone who likes the limelight, I relished the praise and attention. What (or should I say ‘who’) most people forget when they notice a pregnant woman is the figure behind her…carrying the bags, lifting the heavy objects and giving the occasional, but much-needed…

  • The Truth About Working at Home as a Supersized Family Mom

    Working at home with all the other chores moms are responsible for is sheer insanity. My WAHM life is not pretty. It’s not perfect. And some days I wonder if it’s even worth it. My Schedule: 10am-11am: Wakeup, eat, coffee, Bible(ish) time, feeding people 11am-12pm: Who knows? 12pm-4pm: Start homeschooling 4 of the 6 kids 4pm-5pm: Avoiding the kids at all cost, showering, brushing teeth (I’m not even kidding) 5pm-6pm: Dinner as kids binge watch YouTube 8pm: Kids in bed (at least I hope!) 8pm-9pm Convincing children to stay in bed 9pm-4am: Work The Truth About Schedules Schedules are a bit of a farce, even mine. Any moment is interrupted by a dirty diaper…

  • How to Reach Your Personal Goals as a Supersize Family Mom

    I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to make time for my own personal goals. How can you do other stuff when you are a mom, wife, homemaker, employee? It seems impossible, right? By the time I get the kids in bed, and get the hubby…um, you know and the house cleaned, I have only a little time just for me.  Does anyone else experience this? It feels like every single second of our lives has to be accounted for in order to keep our proverbial ducks in a row! UGH! Remember Evie from Out of this World? It was an 80s sitcom where the character would press the…
