Fiber is Your Friend! [Choosing Joy]
Okay, so it has taken me a long time to work up the courage to discuss this topic with my Choosing Joy friends.  But, I know in my heart that I am not the only one out there that struggles with this issue and so it is time to get a little personal...
Both Hands Serving [Choosing Joy]
It was a drizzly Saturday morning.  The sky was gray, and there was a bit of a chill in the air.  It was the perfect morning to hit the snooze button.  But today was a day we had been praying about and planning for for months.  So we put on our work clothes, grabbed our gloves, a…
It’s Okay to Be a Baby [Choosing Joy]
It’s hard being one.  My sweet toddler faces new challenges every day.  She is struggling to walk on chubby, wobbly legs.  She is struggling to chew with only 4 teeth.  She is struggling to see the world while being not even 2 ½ feet tall...

“Let’s go to Chick-fil-a for lunch.”
This suggestion seems innocent enough, but for a week a half now I have been doing well to make healthier food choices, but I had no…
No More Praying Like a Victim [Choosing Joy]
It’s been almost a year since our baby arrived.  She is eating table food, moments away from walking, and almost sleeping through the night.  Life is starting to balance itself again.  Praise God!
It is time now to start taking back my body.  T...
“You Look Pretty!” [Choosing Joy]
The other day I woke up begrudgingly.  The week was over half way through and the fatigue was setting in.  I looked in the mirror and sighed with disappointment.  Dry skin, bags under the eyes, another gray hair, and a body that just refuses to bounce back after this third baby...
Let’s Use Our Freedom of Speech to Pray [Choosing Joy]
