Book Review: The Mama Natural Week-by-Week Guide to Pregnancy and Childbirth

One of my passions is working with Children and Families, so I am always reading parenting books and the like.

I’ve recently returned to the Maternal and Child Health realm and completed training to become a Certified Doula.  As a result, I and will probably be sharing more pregnancy, birth, and baby related product and book reviews on the blog as opportunities present themselves.   This should be fun! 🙂 Continue reading



There WAS a much longer post here, but it looks like it was erased somehow.. 😦

I’ll try to update it later.
Here’s the scripture reference for your personal meditation:
The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers. Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

1 Peter 4:7‭-‬8 NLT

The Simple Songs

Thank God for the simple songs. 

I’m up early this morning in full out crafting/wedding prep mode and this song came up randomly on an automated playlist. 

If you’ve been connected to me via social media, you’ve probably observed my love for music. All types, genres and from all periods. I live my life in lyrics and those closest to me are familiar with my daily references to song lyrics in most of my conversations. 😊

Thinking back on many of my most difficult periods, it was my WORSHIP– the “simple songs”– that helped me get through. 

My heart remembered one of THE MOST difficult days, when I called my mom to vent and get some encouragement and her response was to start singing,  “I Won’t Complain.”  A simple song. 

Those lyrics were really all I needed to hear.  I thank God for a relationship like that.  Where one knows the song that can minister to someone else. 

But what if we didn’t have and continue to sing those SIMPLE SONGS? 

Needless to say, this song really blessed my soul this morning. Sometimes those reminders come just when we need them and I know it’s not by coincidence.  

I shared it on my Instagram page and wanted to also include it here along with a link to the video. 

I pray it is a blessing and encouragement for you this morning. 

🎶 🎶….The simple song of life simply says, “You SO LOVED the WORLD, That you gave your life for EVERY man, little boy, and girl.” 

In this quest of life when tempests rage,I fall on my knees and say, 

“Lord don’t take my simple song away”.💗💖💗💖💗💖 

….In this quest of life when tempests rage, I fall on my knees and say, 🙏💖🙏💖 

“Lord don’t take my simple song away”…… Songs like 

🎶…”AMAZING GRACE, how SWEET the sound, that SAVED a WRETCH like me”…🎶 🙌😭 

Songs like, 🎶”Oooh we, ooh wee child, things are gonna get easier”….🎶 🙏

Songs like, 🎶”We got to find a way, to bring some LOVIN’ here today”….🎶💖💗💖💗 

“Lord don’t take my simple song away”….

 It may be simple to you, but it’s mine. All mine. All mine!….

Lord we THANK YOU for the SIMPLE SONGS! 🎶 


My Skin Care Scoop



Starting Review:

Y’all know I’m all about self-care, but I’ll be honest — I fell off on my daily routine during our travel and jet lag wasn’t my friend coming or going.

I’m went in for a “reset” a few weeks back and then started testing a few items at home. Up first was this SONIC ERASER Pro. It is described as a tool that can help improve the absorption of your daily skin care products.
