A Letter to My Terminally Ill Dad – I Love You

March 29, 2018

It’s been a long few months. My father has been in and out of hospitals and rehabs since early 2017. We finally learned why a few months ago. He has cirrhosis of the liver. It has now progressed to the “terminal” stage. I immediately offered to be tested to be a live liver transplant donor for him, but he was denied the chance to even be a recipient because of…


Family Time: The New Holiday Tradition

December 1, 2017

Christmas is the busiest time of year. There’s events to attend, lights to see, gifts to buy, hot cocoa to drink… the list of fun is endless. This year with my Dad’s diagnosis of dementia I’m realizing that family time is precious and I’m making that our priority. I’m a firm believer that kids aren’t going to remember all the toys they get for Christmas each year… they will, however, remember the…


ESV Illuminated Bible Review {and Giveaway!}

November 26, 2017

November and December are usually my favorite months of the year. It’s filled with family, food, gracious hearts & giving. Not to mention the pretty lights, festive music, hot chocolate and the movie Elf. However, this year has been a little different… Outside of the normal running around getting ready for Thanksgiving and making to do lists already for Christmas, our family has had quite the month. First, we found…


Where Did Frugal Southern Living Go??!?

November 18, 2017

You may have noticed over the last few weeks that Frugal Southern Living has slowly rebranded to Mommy Love Media. I felt that this was a necessary move as I want to be able to reach and help more families. I have prayed over this move for months now and God has been pressing on my heart to make the move NOW, so.. I took a leap of faith and…


The Star: The Story of the First Christmas #TheStarMovie #Flyby

November 15, 2017

November & December are my favorite months of the year! It’s two months filled with family, fun, food, gratitude and, of course, gift giving. I love to give gifts and see someone light up as the excitement of that perfect gift overwhelms them… especially the little ones! But I feel each year, especially as we take a look at everything going on around our country, that the true meaning of…


God’s Great Love for You {Children’s Book Review} #RickWarren #Flyby

November 7, 2017

Elsie’s is going to be one in a few weeks.. I can’t believe it! Okay, I’m back.. I had to wipe up a few tears.. Ever since her baby shower, we’ve been working on her little library and it has been growing quite rapidly lately, now mostly containing beautiful Christian books. I love this because even though she isn’t quite able to communicate her thoughts, she is always very interested in…


The Most Powerful Story of Forgiveness

September 28, 2017

This is the most powerful story of forgiveness I’ve ever read. Eva Mozes Kor is a Holocaust survivor. She tells her personal story in the video I’ve shared below of how she & her family were shipped to the Auschwitz Camp in 1944. When they discovered she and her sister Miriam were twins, they were immediately pulled away from their family and never saw them again. This was the moment…


The Truth about Cancer Live FREE Event October 5-7, 2017

September 27, 2017

  Earlier this month, I had a LifeScan completed. If you have never had one done and have the opportunity to, I HIGHLY recommend it. LifeScan is a thorough health work-up that includes blood work, hearing and vision tests, ultrasounds and a physical exertion test. The entire set takes about 2-3 hours to complete. The very first year I did mine they found a tumor in my thyroid. I had…


Faith-Full Hearts for Puerto Rico

September 26, 2017

News of Hurricane Irma hitting Puerto Rico was heartbreaking. Hearing Hurricane Maria came thru only a week later was terrifying. We have family in Puerto Rico and the entire island has been on my heart. My husband and I want so much to just drop everything and go to help, but there is no way that I am aware of (at the time of this writing) to be able to…
