About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Be Still


Lately my life kind of feels like the picture above.  Bradley decided it would be fun to dump out all his toys and just have piles of chaos on his floor.  I couldn't help but think how that picture of chaos is exactly how I feel inside.  I've been searching for so many answers, finding my purpose, and just hanging on to the hope that God has something wonderfully planned out for me.  I'm new at this SAHM thing and as much as I adore playing cars with Bradley and fixing gourmet meals for Mike, I still find the need to search for more purpose.  I'm used to the role of WOHM, fostering multiple children, and tending to Mike and Bradley's need.  I know how to play the role of Super Mom.  Life is easier for me when the calendar is full of appointments, schedules, and chaos.  This peace and quiet....I'm not sure how to get used to. ( I know a lot of you would probably pay to be in my position right now.)  We are all created differently and God gives each one of us a purpose that only we can do for His glory.  Finding that purpose is what is more difficult.  It's not like God sends our written plan for life by email.  We have to dig into His word, spend time talking to Him, and just be still.  He will eventually unfold the answers.  I love the song below as it reminds me to be STILL.  God is King over my life and He's got this!
