Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day Friends!

I(Kasey) heard an excerpt from the book, The Invisible Womanseveral years ago at a mom’s group at church. Since then, it has become a Mother’s Day tradition to share the excerpt with you. Even though I have read it countless times it always speaks to my heart in such a personal way. So often we give so much of ourselves and wonder if we have made a difference or if anyone notices. On a day like Mother’s Day when we “should” feel most appreciated, many of us may struggle with insecurities in our mind. Today – to every woman out there I want to remind you how important you are, how loved you are by the God of the universe, and how eternally important it is to be a mom.

My most wonderful gifts from God. The reason I celebrate Mother’s Day are the little one’s who call me Mommy.

Our youngest baby girl, how we all adore you!

We want to acknowledge that for many, today is bittersweet. If you’ve lost your mom, or if you are a mom who has lost a child we pray that you would feel God’s peace and comfort wash over you today as you rest in Him.

10 Mother’s Day Easy Breakfast Ideas (For the hubby & kids to make!)

Mother’s Day weekend is (or should be!) a day for mom to sleep in and get breakfast-in-bed, but if the rest of your family is cooking-challenged they may need a push in the right direction.  Since we leave for church pretty early on Mother’s Day, we sometimes start celebrating on Saturday morning. My sweet husband and big kids let me sleep in a little while they cook breakfast. It’s such a nice treat to not relax while they are doing all the work!

Even though we normally eat very healthy, Mother’s Day is an all out cheat day where I treat myself with whatever I want and I enjoy every single bite without once ounce of guilt. In case your hubby might need some inspiration, here are 10 breakfast recipes that Jamie and I have posted over the years you might enjoy.
