Remember when you were in school and you always wished Thanksgiving Break would mark the end of the school year?

Who the heck wants to go back to school and try to concentrate during the month of December when all you can think about is CHRISTmas break!

I mean really…who made the school day calendar anyway.

NOT ME!!! BUT I do make the BLOGDAY calendar.

And mine says…spend time with your family and encourage all those other bloggers out there to do the same thing. I mean really…our blog sites will still be here in January, but December 2012 will never come again.

And … if you listen to the Myans…December may never come again…or January, or February, or March, or April, blah, blah, blah.

However, God is in charge…not the Myans!

Regardless, we will be experiencing silent night – and day – around this url till January.

I do have one BIG FANTASTICAL announcement to make…God is up to something big…like ARE YOU KIDDING ME? BIG … it has something to do with a major radio station and the sharing of momlife stories that will encourage, equip and empower the daggum heck out of you…YOUR STORIES!

Stay tuned and hear me loud and clear when I say…if you have a story to tell – I want to hear about it! Send me a note through my Contact link and finish this sentence – “If I had a microphone, I would want to share…”

Moms with a microphone…watch out world!!!

Now, get off of the internet and go make family memories, deck your halls, fa-la-la-la-la, be joyful and triumphant and remember the REASON FOR THE SEASON…baby Jesus and eternity!

Tracey, I’m on the edge of my seat. I’m guessing K-LOVE is giving you you own radio show? That would be amazing!!

I’ve got a couple questions for you, but I’m too excited to wait until Mom boot camp. Can I email you?

Hi, I’m Esther from New Zealand and I just listened to your two sessions on Focus on the Family and they were SO refreshing….you put into words so much of what I have been living the last few months… much guilt, fear of failure, comparing myself to others etc etc. I am 30 yrs old and have 3 pre-school children –
Levi nearly 4, Aria 2 and 1/2 and Micah 5 months. To be honest the last 6 months have been the absolute hardest of my whole life!! I two have sat on my sofa with my three kids all of us crying!! Anyway I don’t want to go on and on, but just wanted to thank you so much for sharing what you did and encouraging Mums like me who feel like every day is so hard. God bless. From Esther.

PS Hope to read your book sometime too!

    Oh Esther, I wish I could come sit on your couch with you and offer you an up close ear and some hope that it is ALL worth it! Every day as a mom is so demanding, but God is right there with you and what you are doing as a mom truly is so important! I just lifted up a prayer for you sweet mom! stay positive, stay connected to God’s truth and try to build lighthearted fun into your day! Little eyes are watching! Big, big hug!
