5 things I love about being a Mom & a Giveaway! April 12, 2016

Some days, being a mom is really hard. Some days, it feels like motherhood is just not the right gig for me. Some days, my best laid mom plans go awry. Maybe you’ve had days like that. So today, I’m thinking about the things I love most about being a mom.

  1. I love being a mom because I love to see my children be just who they are and realize that I had everything and nothing to do with it all at the same time.
  2. I love being a mom because it gives me meaning that goes beyond myself.
  3. I love being a mom because my kids make me laugh even when I don’t want to.
  4. I love being a mom because my kids push me outside my comfort zone and make me rethink what is important in life.
  5. I love being a mom because I get a front row seat to the lives of 5 pretty awesome people.

Those are just some of the things I love about being a mom.

Indivisible – Giveaway!! February 25, 2011

I finished reading Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann. I’m slow to post the review, but I had a hard time putting the book down! I really was a great book – mystery, crime and a little budding romance too. It is Christian fiction – so no “kids don’t read this page” parts. No foul words. There are drug references and other than those, I’d be comfortable letting my Professor read this book.

The story centers on a police chief. He follows in the career footsteps of his deceased father. When unusual animal deaths begin to appear, the investigation begins. A local shop manager, her boarder, the new vet in town, the local real estate agent, and a mysterious “germaphobe” all take part in this well-written, suspenseful story. As the police chief and shop manager’s lives continue their complicated, woven journey’s, each must learn forgiveness. A drug ring investigation also causes characters to face hard truths. Will the animal killer be found? Will forgiveness lead to healing?
