I'm a Stay-at-Home Mom.

Hey y'all!
I'm just finishing up birthday season around here.  One more party, then it's fall!  In the last three weeks, Amy turned 12, Michael turned 14, and Emily is now sweet sixteen and never been kissed.  I just like my kids. My oldest, Matthew, is 22.  He's out on his own now, but calls and comes by often.  It's been so neat to have the privilege of being with my children as their personalities and interests develop.  I wouldn't trade being a stay-at-home mom for anything.  I never made a paycheck that was worth the relationships I have with my four children.

Thank you Lowell!
Thank you God!

Thankful to be Momma

P.S.  Big myth, your husband has to make a lot of money if you're going to stay home.  Truth, you have to stretch your money if you're going to stay home.


  1. Hi Laura you sound as if you had a wonderful family time - such periods are opportunities to bond with those we love. You are an inspiration Laura and I just love reading your posts. Have a wonderful weekend with your gorgeous family
    Lots of love as always

  2. Hi Dorothy,
    Thank you for taking time to talk back to me. It's a great encouragement. I'll be over for a visit soon. It seems I don't have much time for reading or writing right now.

  3. My mom's time spent as a stay-at-home mom was very influential in the close bonds my sister and I have with her. I am 39, and I spend every Saturday almost with my mother. I think being an adult makes me appreciate her even more... Thank you, Lord, for my mom!

    Thank you for sharing your love for your family!!!


  4. Oh Heather, that just makes me happy to know. I pray that will be the case with my children and I. Blessings,


Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
