Home is where God is.

Your home is a sacred and special dwelling place. It is a place where those living in should feel safe and secure. You should feel loved and worthy in that home. Your home is also where your heart is and where your heart is so is your treasure.   What kind of home did you come from? Was it a loving home? Was it a home where a mother or father wasn’t present? Was it a home where you didn’t…

The time I didn’t want to hold you.

That time was tonight. I did everything the same way I’ve been doing it for the past month. It had been 3 hours since you last ate. I fed you 3 ounces. I changed your diaper. I put on your lotion. I put on your footed pjs. You were burped and swaddled. I put you to sleep with your paci. I walked away thinking about the hundreds of things to do still. You kept spitting your paci out. You continued…

Satan got the best of me today.

This 3rd pregnancy has been really rough for me. I can do a pretty good job hiding how I feel. My husband, on the other hand hears it all. The complaining, the whining, the grumbling, the breathing, the crying, the groaning, the peeing, the sleeping, etc.   I am SO THANKFUL I got to go on maternity leave at 34 weeks from teaching. Let’s just say I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I WOULD BE ABLE TO TEACH THE LAST 4…

Verses to pray over your baby & children!

Prayer is an essential part of my life. Without it I wouldn’t be able to communicate fully to my Savior. The Lord wants to hear from us and so many times I let my own priorities get in the way of speaking to Him.   I want so much more for my children. Yes I want them to be healthy and smart. Above those things though I want them to know the Lord and have a relationship with Him. I…

The Ashmores Blog has some BIG news!

Teaching has been my passion since I was a little girl. I used to play school in my bedroom. I had a chalkboard, overhead projector, worksheets, and animals as my students.   I was so excited when that dream became a reality in August of 2010! I landed my first teaching job at an amazing private school. There was only one problem. I had an 8 month old and would need to leave him in the care of someone else.…

My Rainbow baby Maternity shoot.

A rainbow baby is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss. I have experienced 2 miscarriages in my adulthood and neither one of them were something I ever thought I’d endure. Losing a child when you’re only a couple weeks or further is hard no matter what. My faith in the Lord was the only thing that got me through both. Ainsley is my first rainbow baby and now Leighton will be my second. God gives and…

LOVE is not just a word.

Thank you Gymboree for sponsoring this post! “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” Luke 6:31 Do you want to be loved and treated equally? Do you want to be shown kindness? Do you want others to help you in your time of need? If you said YES to any of those questions then you need to do the same to others. Now I know that is easier said than done. That’s just it. LOVE isn’t just…

Why I will never compromise sharing the name of Jesus…+ a bumpdate!

I know I am one of the few that speak the name of Jesus on my social media accounts. I follow a handful of ladies who proclaim to love the Lord. It’s a touchy subject to say the least. Some women feel it will hurt their social media following or that brands may not potentially work with them. While those two assumptions might true it does not in ANY way sway my decision to say the name of Jesus.  …

Planner? No…. work out plan? No…. I need a Savior.     I have wrestled with the thought of coming up with one word for 2017 and what goals I’d like to to achieve in 2017. Only one real thing came to mind. I need more of Jesus. When I fill myself up with more of Him I am content.   I was reminded by a sweet friend of mine the other day about how many times our children cry out…
