When You Become Jealous of the World

When You Become Jealous of the World

If you are at all like me, you have a busy life, with lots to do, lots of work, lots of family, and a lot of responsibility. My family owns and operates a web design business from home; we home-school, cook and clean, care for a 20 acre Ranch, and care for each other on a daily basis.

With all of the work that is put into our farm and business it’s easy to become discontent and unhappy with the..

Top 10 Blog Posts of 2014!

Hello there, Beautiful!

It is the start of a new year, new goals, new friends, new days to begin and enjoy. As we look back on the year we have just experienced we are reminded of the times we were made stronger through hard days, the times we smiled and laughed so hard we couldn’t control ourselves, the times we loved deeply, and the times we cried ourselves to sleep. But we look ahead,..

What Your Dream Guy Wants in a Girl

What Your Dream Guy Wants in a Girl

I recently did an interview on the topic of dating, marriage and courtship. I was giving my thoughts on romance, boundaries, guys and how I want my future relationship to work out.

One of the questions the lady interviewing me asked was “what qualities are you looking for in guy?” 

Talk about a super basic question that I should easily know the answer to. Wrong! I was totally caught off guard..

Surviving a Heartbreak

Surviving a Heartbreak

Heartbreak hurts terribly. I never realized just how much though until it happened to me for the first time just a little over a month ago. Before that I had always just thought that it was a figure of speech. I didn’t know that it really does make your heart hurt physically and emotionally with grieving. And that is why I am writing this post because I want to be able to share my story with..

Be the Influence Instead of Being Influenced

Be the Influence Instead of Being Influenced

The other day I was listening to a conversation between my youngest sister and youngest brother. As I sat there (harmlessly) listening to this conversation I heard my sister mimic something I had said earlier that day. I had no idea that Cali had been in the room when I said it but apparently she was and had just repeated me. Same tone of voice and everything!

A Hospitable Heart for the Holidays

A Hospitable Heart for the Holidays

Oh yes, it’s that time of year again and I am soooo beyond excited for the upcoming holidays. At my house we have many traditions that I like to hold dear to my heart and it’s what makes me so cheery right around this time of year. Another reason why I love the holiday season is because of all the warm friendship that is felt between friends and family members. Home is at the center of..

Virtue and Chivalry in the 21st Century

Virtue and Chivalry in the 21st Century

The other day I was on Facebook and an ad for fashion came up that had the tagline describing their clothes as: “Noble, Elegant, Sexy, and Pure.” I thought, “Huh, that doesn’t sound right.” I mean, how did the word “Sexy” sneak its way in between the three other words?

In our generation, most people (mostly young people aged 13-30) just don’t even know the meaning of words like nobility,..
