He’s Got The Look

Now that spring break is over, two days a week, it is just me and this one:

Is it just me, or is he giving me ‘the look’ in that picture.  You know what ‘the look’ is, right?  (more…)

Who You Callin’ Chicken?

Monkey has always been a good eater.

Caterpillar, on the other hand … not so much.

From the time Monkey was itty bitty she’s just tried everything we’ve served her, and there’s not much that she won’t eat.

Caterpillar, on the other hand … not so much.

Lately, she cannot get enough chicken legs.  I am not sure why, but this girl can put away some chicken legs.  She even asks for them by name every morning when I ask what she feels like for dinner.

My Name Is Angie, And I Am A Bad Friend

We just kicked off our Boundaries study last night and I am already loving it.  Someone in our journey group mentioned that she doesn’t think she’s a very good friend because she’s become such a homebody.  I instantly thought ‘that’s me!’.

As we explored the idea that wanting to home with your family, enjoying the simpler things does in some ways make you a bad friend, I realized I am a bad friend.  I hardly ever want to leave the house.  Not in a scared or cranky sort of way, but I just love being at home.  To the point where when I am committed to doing things outside of the house, such as MOPS, Daddy often has to convince me to get out the door.  Once I get there, I have a good time – it’s not that.  I do enjoy the people I see there, and no one can relate to me like those mommies can.   (more…)

Here We Go Again!

As I do every year I am begging asking for you to take a look at my donation page for The Rock MOPS walk.  It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year, and now that I have been on the leadership team, I have a little bit better perspective on just how much it takes to have a group that is the size of ours run so smoothly.

The child care provided for 80 moms alone is mind-blowing.  Add in everything else, and it becomes truly amazing what God does within our group with so little.  However, the part that has had the most impact on me this year is the moms that apply for scholarship.  These moms come with their hearts open and a willingness to serve.  They need our group.  They need the connection that MOPS provides, and they are willing to throw it all out there and ask for help in order to get it.  However, just as much as they are willing to serve, at the end of the day, serving doesn’t pay for the services we provide.  It’s humbling for me, therefore I can only imagine how it feels for them.

So, with a heart that has been humbled by those mommies, this mommy is asking you to please donate to MOPS this year.  It doesn’t need to be a lot, because I know even an amount equal to the change in your couch will go to good use.

Aside from scholarships, the money will go towards the child care, crafts, speakers and community outreach.  Your donation is also tax-deductible!

So, if you are going to give to anything this season, I am asking that you consider giving to The Rock MOPS, through my page.
