    When I was 17 years old, I had completely stopped ovulating. My doctor told me that I could give up on the dream of having a child. I was 17 -- I didn't want a child at that moment. I didn't even have a boyfriend. The doctor wasn't sure if the problem would sort itself out -- or...

    Teach children by example not advice.

    Give them the tools to have long lasting nurturing relationships. The best gift you could ever give them is your time, not your words.

    Sure my children may not be here and are in God's kingdom now. But that doesn't mean they've never existed. Being pregnant is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I was quite young when I was pregnant, the first pregnancy I was 16 and the second one, I was 17. I...

    He is talkative, demanding, spoiled, and a bit to curious for his own good. But he is also loving, helpful, energetic, and to smart for his own age. Sometimes when we have conversations, some of the things he says just blows my mind. He's the type of three year old who doesn't...

    This morning Andrew surprised me a little.

    I went to the girls' room for a minute leaving him on his tummy on our bed. I come back and he's on his back. Somebody has figured out rolling over. Youngest of my babies to do so.
