Welcome!

Thanks for visiting my site! It's mostly where I blog (and post some fun stuff too.) and connect with you, my friends and fellow moms "gettin after it!"

I don’t want to sweep things under the rug while we continue living our sheltered little lives, ignoring the chaos ensuing literally right in front of us. It just does not feel right.
So I called a family meeting.     read more...
What's in a Name?
I wonder if I am representing the name of Christ well, in my community, to those who know Him and those who are yet to meet Him. Amongst friends and family do I honor His memory? Am I running the race well, knowing that although the name on my jersey may say OVERHAUSER, the name written on my heart reads JESUS CHRIST, my heavenly father?
