My Three Sons!!

It has been quite a while since my last post. A whirlwind of events have transpired but I am back nevertheless! The biggest news I have to share is that we will be the proud parents of three rambunctious little boys. Yes, baby number three is a little boy.  Although my heart was set on a little girl, I have come to understand that God's agenda is what I am following. He knows exactly what/who we need in our lives.

My last week or so has been spent getting over the fact that I am not having a girl (Ha!) and changing all of my plans I had for the nursery. My Pinterest app is probably burning up all of my battery power on my phone. But I have been getting excited about the idea of raising up three little men for Christ.

Now, for a little transparency. I have to  admit that I struggled the day after I found out I was having another boy. Reality had set in.  I had so many thoughts running through my head.  "But I wanted a girl!" "How will I handle three boys?" "Lord, I don't know if  I have enough energy to raise all these boys!!"  All of these thoughts, pulled at me for the next couple of days. 

But God always has a reason for what he does. Each of our sons has a purpose for being on this Earth-- a purpose that will bring glory to the Father. A purpose that will allow God's love to be shown to many. I truly believe that. The world needs more godly men and I am thankful that God has chosen us to be stewards of his precious gifts.  What an honor it is (and will be), to be the parents of Jason, Jr., Trenton, and Baby Joshua.

Psalm 127:3-5 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Proverbs 19:21 English Standard Version (ESV)
21 Many are the plans in the mind of a man,
    but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

The big reveal. My hubby was quite sick. He showed up just
to help open the box.

Everyone that came out to celebrate with us.


  1. Congratulations! God gave these three sons good Godly parents.Thank you for helping spread the gospel through this inspirational blog.Happy holidays and God continue his blessings to your family.

  2. Great post! I think you're right, and I'll throw in this theory: y'all need (at least) one more boy to have the amount of male energy around that'll be needed to look out for the girl that WILL be coming! Ha! :)

    The reveal gathering looks fun!

    1. Ha!! Ha!! We are hoping to be done after this one. :) The reveal party was a lot of fun. I have a friend who is an awesome party planner! Thanks for the comment!!

Welcome to Mama's Maze!

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new blog—Mama's Maze. I am truly excited about starting this blog. God placed this on my heart a while ago so it is awesome to see it come to fruition.  I have never done anything like this before, so I am thrilled about venturing into uncharted territory. Writing is a passion of mine, and I love talking about the goodness of God.  So what better way to put the two together than in a blog.
How did I come up with the name Mama's Maze?  Well, one day as I was pondering on what the name of this blog would be, I thought about my experiences as a mother.  I mean, after being in the game for five years now, what could I compare motherhood to?  After much thought, the word "maze" came to mind. If you have ever been in a maze or played some type of game that had one, you know it can be challenging, frustrating, and rewarding if you ever make it through.  There are so many twists and turns that it can be quite overwhelming…

God, The Plan Changer

It's been quite a while since I have posted anything to the blog. Since Joshua was born our life has been turned upside down and all around. Our lives have changed so much since my last post, I am still trying to process all of it. So where do I begin?

In September, my husband and I celebrated our 10 year Anniversary. We decided to throw a party at a local Thai restaurant with family and friends. It was amazing-- Great food with great people.  It truly was an unforgettable night. But while we were enjoying the company of our friends, in the back of my mind I knew that things were about to change. For me, the party felt like a farewell. I tried not to think about it, but I knew it was coming. See a couple of days from that night, Jason was scheduled to have an interview with a company in another state. And I knew…before they even talked…I knew within myself, our lives were about to change again.
Sure enough, within a few weeks, an offer had been made to my husband. It was too good …

Sister to Sister

I can remember growing up wishing that I had a sister. Yes, I had my brother, but there was only so much he could understand as a male. And with us being 7 1/2 years apart, we didn’t have a whole lot in common. When I was really small, I was so desperate to have a sister, I would pretend that Janet Jackson was my sister! Ha! Although I was young, I longed for someone to talk to that could understand me and just be my friend.  Well, unfortunately mom and dad never had any more kids, so that was it. No sisters for me--at least not biologically.
However, over the years, I have come to realize that God had a different plan for me. He brought several sisters into my life at various points to fill that empty spot in my heart. Some were only in my life for a season and others are still very much a part of my life today. And as time has gone on, I have come to appreciate what real sisterhood looks like.
As women and as mothers we often need those "sister" relationships. These are t…
