Moms United

Written by:   |  Found in: Parenting  |  2 Comments »

{originally published in 2012) I have read many blog posts and articles recently regarding the “mommy wars.”  It’s the silly notion that there is a chasm between working moms and stay-at-home moms.

I was excited to hear about what they had learned that day and what crafts they had made that pertained to the daily bible verse.  After attending the entire week, I realized that the lessons and bible verses they […]

Fearless is a series about women living fearless lives. The words fearless and courageous are used interchangeably, however I like the word “fearless” more.
