Time for MOM: A Time to Refresh Alongside the Road

As you read this, FishBaby and I are wrapping up our time at the WholeHearted Mother conference in Irvine. My friend Jessika invited me to come for an extended time to rest and refresh, away from the business of everyday life. This is the first time I’ve ever been away from my husband and kids […]

Time For MOM: What Will Get You Further Down the Road?

On Saturdays this month, I’ve been thinking aloud about the road I’m on. It’s called Motherhood. It’s a long road. And it’s one that takes some planning and forethought.

Time for MOM: Make a Record of It

One of the things that I have found so helpful, especially after a holiday, is to take notes of the projects I try or the mels I create. I like to write down what worked and what bombed. In this way, I have a record of what things to repeat and what to pitch. You […]
