Just Say No to Martyr Parenting

Today I have two seventeen year olds. I do not have identical twins, but rather what some call “Irish twins.” My oldest and middle children are six days short of a year apart. And there are only fourteen months between my second and third. I was very busy making,...

A Thank You letter to 2020

Be grateful… they say. There is always so much to be thankful for, so many blessings.  Have you ever struggled with having an attitude of gratitude? If yes, then thank you for being honest. So have I. There is nothing wrong with struggling to be grateful when you...

Hello, my name is Halle and I am Miranda’s 17 (almost 18) year old daughter.  When my mom asked me to write this for her blog, it was a day after we had had a girls’ night.During that time we had had a conversation where I brought up the fact that I would never wantto...

What if life IS supposed to be this way?
