One Horned Flying Horse

I look in the mirror and what do I see? One horn on my head, not two or three Everyone I see has more than one They are all alike except for me I stand alone in my pail plain skin While others around me all blend in Different colors all around I’m outside the…

Saying Goodbye

The plan was to run a few errands before heading to the hospital but that all changed when my mom got the phone call. “Wait, what? Slow down. Everything ok? Ok we are on our way.”  As she hung up the phone, I had a flashback to dream from the night before. There she was, walking toward…

Sour Lemonade

We all have been deceived into believing one of Satan’s biggest lies, that this life, we have been given, is suppose to be easy and pain free.  Its funny to me that the man that is in fact causing us hardships and pain, is also the one that is telling us we are to be…

Stepping into the Furnace

We all know the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.  We read their story as kids and made a mental note in our heads of their great faith & God’s protection over their bodies.  I didn’t think too much of that story beyond that because I believed it did not relate to me.  I felt…

You’re Gonna Be O.K.

(written partly in 2017) The darkness can become very dark at times and it traps us in a lonely and despair state. The darkness can also convince you to believe the lies and forgo the truth. I get stuck in the darkness more times than I want to admit these days. My days are full…

The Next Big Thing: Menards Christmas Tree Lot

We had big plans to visit a local Christmas tree farm this year. Plans to get bundled up in the wagon, cut down our own tree, sip on hot chocolate and take super cute pictures that make our family and friends swoon! But those plans quickly changed as the day went on and the thought…

We sold our house, Now what? 

We gave another big YES recently, unsure of what’s to follow, we said yes to selling our home. After the OhmFlood we knew this was the next step for our family.  We recently accepted an offer on our house and we close on November 10th. Ahhhh! Selling our house has been one of the hardest…

How to survive CRYageddon

What is cryageddon you ask? The Ohm dictionary defines it below:  Cry•a•ged•don  noun •When the majority of your offspring begin crying at the same time causing a sound that could possible break the sound barrier I yelled “what is this cryageddon!?” at the top of my lungs, just trying to out cry the other three…

What JoJo Siwa taught me about Spiritual Warfare 

I had never heard the name JoJo Siwa before, until our unplanned, last minute, Descendants 2 premiere party. The girls were watching YouTube videos on the TV and this new song came on. Immediately, all the girls went crazy.  They began to sing and jump up and down. I listened, unsure I was going to…

Snow Falling at Midnight

The clock struck midnight as my foot landed in the fresh fallen snow. The cold powder tickled my ankles as I walked down the quiet Main Street. What once was full of busy shoppers, now has a blanket of untouched pureness. The shops were locked up tight and the windows were dark. There was a…

“God, can I get a little help here?”

A movie that is popular in our “house” right now is the new Disney movie, Moana. It seems to be on repeat and I honestly don’t mind one bit because it is THAT good. If you haven’t seen it I’m going to be referencing the movie so you may want to stop what you are…

The Ohm Flood

I turned over in the big empty bed glancing over at the clock right before pulling the covers over my face. An image flashed before my mind as I read it was 12:30 am. I was back in my house with flood water covering my feet. My focus went from my submerged feet to the…

One million “thank you’s”

Just a short three years ago our lives looked quite a bit different. We had one beautiful miracle baby and were unsure if God had anymore children in our future. Then in August 2014 we were whisked away to Utah to meet our daughter Amelia. In June 2016 our son, Arden, beat all the odds…

Some may call us crazy

We received a call late Tuesday night informing us that our daughters birth mom was expecting again and she wanted us to adopt. My mouth dropped as I listened on the phone for all the details. She told me she is due early February and doesn’t know the gender yet. My heart leaped out of…

How to have Joy through the Wait 

Her tiny fingers hit each piano key with such intensity and passion, unable to gracefully move from one key to the other with out lifting her hand. Blue painters tape destiguished each key from the other to aid in the learning process.  Her eyes followed the notes intently on the page trying to hit the…

Bathroom Fixer Upper

When we move into our house in 2013 it was in need of a little TLC. The house had been updated from some of the original 1960’s decor but still had the original cabinetry, base boards and pink vanity and tub in the bathroom.       The bathroom was one of the first rooms we…

First off let me just start this post off by giving my deepest apologies if you are or have experienced a miscarriage, either personally or through a close loved one. This post is not an easy one to write and one I wish I didn’t have to write. But, since going through six miscarriages myself,…
