I GET TO: There’s much to be said about having the “right attitude,” when it comes to many things in life. As single gals, wives and mothers, we all should strive for- and demonstrate- a right attitude.

UNHEALTHY CHOICES? Life is full of choices. Some choices are easy (golden highlights or red?). Others bring us to our knees desiring to make that right choice.

CLEAN, TIDY HOUSES How does that happen? Do you ever feel like a clean house is out of your grasp? Do you ever stop in at someone else’s house and it’s pretty tidy even though they didn’t know you were coming? Would you like that? Well, there are certain things that have to occur and […]

GOOD MANNERS PART II So, are you practicing manners with your kiddos? I’ve been able to be the “manner police” for my neighbor girls! They learn quickly, and I notice they are using their manners.
