Grab your pen and paper so you can take notes.

4 Ways To Make Money From Home

  1. Have a garage sale.  Look in your closets and pull out all those tons of shoes that you are probably not wearing; those outfits that still have tags on them.  Stuff that you know you are no longer using, cash in on them.  I promise you if you look long enough, I bet you got over three hundred worth of goods and stuff just sitting up catching dirt and dust.  Remember, one man's trash is another one's  treasure.

kids during the summerDuring the summer months, the kiddos are home and full of energy.  As I've been experiencing these last few weeks, my babies can eat! I've already been grocery shopping three times since school has been out.  But, you have to not get so worked up about it because they will eat, but always remain flexible for new ways to get them out the house. I want to share with you three fun things that I do with my babies during the summer.

3 Ways to Enjoy Your Kids During The Summer

  1. Enroll them in a Reading summer program. Yes check your local newspaper to see which areas are having the program.  I even took it a few steps forward and I created this fun way to help my babies to read better.  I told them who ever reads the most books by the end of June, will receive fifty dollars.  Imagine seeing those little faces when I told them that. So, twice per week, I take them to the library and check out books. I love it! I love hearing them read to me and write their two paragraph report about what they read.

Are you asking yourself where did the time go or when was the last time I did something for myself, grab our Free Self Care Cheat Sheet Here!

  1. Reward them for doing extra chores around the house.  I give them the opportunity to earn extra perks. For example, if they do more than their regular chores, they might get extra movie from the red box, or more time on their electronics.
  2. Take them to museums. Yes, I love learning new stuff and so do them. Every summer, I try to take them to a different museum. A few years back, I took them to the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis (The Lorraine Motel where Dr. King was killed). I love listening to them ask various questions. This year, I plan to take them to the Underground Railroad Museum.

These are just a few ways that I enjoy my kids during the summer months.  How about you, tell me some fun things that you do with your kids during the summer. Comment below.  If you enjoyed this post, please share this with your other mommy friends, and family.

IMG_4901I nearly lost my mind when I heard the news that Prince was dead! It's like I had all kinds of emotions going through my mind; going through my body because I still just could not believe that he was gone. It brought back a lot of memories when I used to live in Chanhassen, Minnesota. I cried like a little baby missing her mommy because I was a huge fan of Prince.

It got me to thinking about my own life and how in this season of my life so many things are transpiring in happening. It brought me to thinking about the things that I've learned from him and I want to share them with you amazing mommies.

5 things I learned from Prince as a MOM


1. Life is too short.  If there is something that you want to do in this thing called life now is a better time to do them.

2. Never take your loved ones for granted. You're always thinking that your family is always going to be there but with the death of Prince,  it goes to show you that life is too short for you to hold back your feelings and just think your family members are going to always be there; that is not the case. Love on them.  Let them know that you love them and show them. Love is an action word.

3. Never put off things for tomorrow. If there's something you need to get done today, don't put it off until tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to you.

4. Say I love you more often. I know we show our kids, our husbands that we love them but sometimes it's very imperative that we say the words out loud; say the word and use action at the same time.

5. Live like you have it all. Stop complaining about what you don't have and start being grateful for the things that you do have. Gratitude is the best way for you to receive more when you show God that you are grateful for the things that you already have.

3 Tips For When Life HappensI can't begin to tell you how I feel right now; All I can say is God is up to something really huge. I want to encourage those of you who are currently going through something or just walking out of something to keep pushing and know that God has your back. Over these last few weeks, my life has be turned upside down and I couldn't run from it or ask God to remove it from my life.  I had to put my big girl panties on and follow course with what God was leading me to do.

3 tips that you can do to remain calm when life happens:

  1. Go through it. Yes, I know it's easier said then done; but if you don't allow yourself time needed to go through your situation; You might just find yourself repeating those same things in your life again.
  1. Increase your prayer life. I always say stay prayed up so when life happens it won't catch you off guard.  I find myself praying all in my car up and down the highways and in the tub.  I want to encourage you to talk to God on a daily and regular basis.
  1. Eliminate all distractions. Yes, turn off the notifications on your phone, get off social media and let go of people and things that are no longer serving you purpose.

Now, I'm saying that it will be a walk in the park, but what I am saying is that if you hold tightly to God's hand, your journey won't be as hard.  He will glide you through your transitions of life.  If you know someone who could use some encouragement, please share this with your friends and family!
