About Us

Mama: I am the wife of a smart and lovely man of almost 8 years and a mama of 3 spirited kiddos. Originally a Colorado native I grew up loving the outdoors. The idyllic scenery's from Colorado are still ingrained in my mind but my God, my family, my husband and children, are the most important thing to me in my life. My purpose is to love and care for them by honoring and serving God with my whole heart. 

Junior: My oldest of three is a first grader this year. Full of energy and life he is a joy to be around. He has a servants heart and helps me a lot around the house. He enjoys trains and models, any art project, legos, and currently soccer.

 The Engineer: My mini-smart pre-k squirt. I nick-named him the engineer because he constantly points out structural designs when outside or in the car, especially water tunnels, detention ponds, you get the idea. Maybe he'll grow up to be a hydralic engineer or maybe not, either way its what he loves right now. That and trains, fire trucks, puzzles, and using his BIG voice. But we love him.
My Sweet Pea: The smallest member of our little clan but certainly not to be missed. She is sweet but also very certain of her likes and dislikes. She enjoys toys-especially her tea set and loves to hug our big dog and lay on him. She likes to be included in school and loves music and dancing, even sometimes makes up her own song.
 Dad: My husband is civil engineer and hard working man. His enjoys pretty much every sport and loves to wrestle with our kiddos on the family room floor. Originally an Ohio native but now a hi-bred ohio-coloradoan and likes the outdoor probably as much as me. A born-again Christian who loves God and serves his family.

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
