It’s something I want to have–something I want my children to understand.
It can be frustrating when I’ve done my utmost best in something and it doesn’t seem to matter. I become agitated. I begin to worry “why” did I even bother?
See where I am going with this?
This cycle wears my mama heart right out onto the sticky floor and I find myself more focused on what I did wrong, or what my kids did wrong—than the right that happened.
And this cycle touches more than just parenting. It tries to stick its prickly tentacles where they don’t belong. Soon, I am trapped in a wrong mindset. A “preparing for the worst,” mindset.
This is no way to live my friend.

“Is the way we’re working, working?”
How I’d been functioning and responding was not working, let me tell you.

“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
#1 In December I will be posting laid back, everyday posts for the first two weeks & then will be taking time away from the blog until January. After that, I hope to see you back on the regular, every Tuesday at 7 AM CST.
#2 I am taking a break from features on the blog & in social media for now as I go to the Lord in prayer about the direction of #TeaAndWord. My reasoning is that I am short on time lately with the creation of book two–and I do not like rushing and not giving my best at anything. I feel if I am giving my best where I need to be right now but not when I read & share YOUR work, it’s not fair or in alignment with who I am. I hope you understand and I appreciate your prayers or feedback on this matter. xoxo
#3 Would you please pray for book two in the Small Town Secrets so that its message would the best it could be? Thank you!
#4 Book reviews next week + find out how to win a paperback of my debut novel.
