Tender Moments that Melts a Momma’s Heart

It’s the simple moments of parenting that catch my attention.  This morning my six year old got out the crayons, drew me a picture of the Bible (I didn’t know it was a Bible until he told me), but the picture melted my heart.  On the front of the Bible it said, “I Love My Mom”  -the bible.  With a picture of my little man and his mom at the bottom.  

It is these precious moments that encourage my heart and make me happy to be a mommy!   




Other precious moments, where my two youngest children, are hanging out at the table watching Daniel Tiger together, coloring, and just being friends.  These are the tender moments a momma lives to see. 



These are the moments that too often get overlooked but when I take time to STOP and absorb the everyday tenderness, I realize how truly blessed I am!

Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way they should go and when they are old they shall never depart from it.”

Mathew 19:14 “Jesus said, “Let the little children come unto me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.”

I love God, my husband was my high school sweet heart, and still is today. I'm a proud mother of the four most wonderful, sweetest, and cutest kids in the world! In addition, I am a mental health counselor. I love to write! I write from the most honest places within my heart and pray my experiences are able to help and encourage others on their journey through life.

    1. I know! My oldest turned 12 last week. As happy as I tried to be for him, I was also so sad! Funny how I cherish these moments so much more with each passing day!
