Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!  By now many of you will be stuffed to the gills with turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.  My family and I will be having the traditional meal tomorrow because we took our kids to our families favorite restaurant and then spent the night in an extended stay […]

Work Hard to Dream Big

Work Hard Dream Big Stay Focused

My journey with this blog Inspired Housewife has taken me on some wild rides and I have met some wonderful people because of it.  What started out as a way to put my son’s story online so I could easily give people a link, has grown into something that helps people daily.  I know my […]

Gift of Life

Gift of Life

A few days ago on my personal Facebook timeline I shared something very personal.  I was at my computer and happened to look at the date and the time.  I realized it was the anniversary to my near death experience.  I always get a bit emotional on this day because I really feel I was […]

One Big Family

One Big Family

The Power of Prayer

Tristan Sleeps

This past week on my personal Facebook page I asked for prayer from my friends and family for something of which I could not divulge the details.  I was overwhelmed by the likes and the comments of “done”, “praying”, “thinking of you, hope everything is okay!” and so on.  After lots of prayer on my […]
