Since leaving full-time radio, this blog is such a blessing for a girl who needs to express herself! If you recognize my name, it may be because you heard me on Christian radio somewhere, sometime since 1990. Over the years, I’m had the chance to share life through radio in many different states and, for the last four years of my full-time radio career, nationally on K-LOVE. I left full-time radio to focus my heart on raising Jon David and Jesse, two strong boys who keep this 40-something mom in laughter, tears, and prayer every single day! I so look forward to reading, sharing, and growing with you as a mom and sister in Christ.

And YOU get to submerge yourself into an adult conversation. It’s great. Because my first child didn’t arrive until I was 38 years old, the wonder of “the Continue »
If you’re the mom of a preschooler, I wonder if you are like me and you sometimes get into “constant-responding-mode” when your kids get into “constant-demand-mode.” It hit me a couple of days ago when my 3 year old declared, “I have a booger.” And I realized this had become the norm. “I need milk.” Continue »
Editor’s Note: I am SO HAPPY to announce that Lisa Williams, the former morning DJ from KLOVE is joining us as a regular contributer for MomLife Today! I met Lisa a few months ago by e-mail and then in person in March! We hit it off so well that an instant desire to work together Continue »
“No sweetheart, you cannot take a picture of it.” Giant crocodile tears. With great angst… “I will never see this poo-poo again!” More loud, dramatic crying. My analytical side watches his face contort, wondering how he gets his mouth open that wide while frowning and screaming. His face is turning red. My face registers nothing Continue »
