SWIPE to the right and you'll see what happens when you keep your kids too close......PURE LOVE = SMOTHERING.
Just a Mama and her mini me. I love my little doodie bop baby. He is the most calm and quiet baby I've had. We prayed every night I was pregnant that he would be calm. After having our hands full with a 2 year old and 1 year old at the time, we didn't want anymore kids for awhile. •

But God had other plans. So when we found out I was pregnant we just knew we needed God to give us an easy child so we didn't loose our minds with three very small children. 🙌🏽I praise him daily for answering our prayers. Ambrose is such a blessing.🌅 HOW HAS GOD BLESSED YOU?
I love him as if he were the only MAN in the world. Because in my mind he is the only man in my world.
I don't remember my first visit to the beach. My son won't remember either, but I will. His deep blue eyes gazing upon the beauty of the ocean made this Mama heart melt. There are only so many firsts and I cherish each and every one of them. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE "FIRST" MEMORY OF YOUR CHILD?
Sea foam captures me. It reminds me of days when all was easy and fun. Like a childhood that has just begun. The way it washes up on the shore splashing up so it sprinkles you ever so lightly with bits of water. It smells good and fresh. Leaves me wanting more. If sea foam was a candy it would be equivalent to a mint meringue.
HE REALLY WANTED TO EAT THE SAND! - I look funny here but this is the face I make as I soothe my baby. I make a clicking sound to calm him. QUESTION: What did your kids do the first time they went to the beach?
🏖Being at the beach for the first time in two years made me think about something my husband says about sand to our youth group at church. He says to understand eternity you have to imagine yourself counting each grain of sand on every beach in the world🌎. As long as it would take you is how eternity would feel. He explains this when giving the gospel to our kids. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
When our body dies our souls continue to live on, in either Heaven or Hell. The Bible says if you have broken one of the 10 Commandments 📜then you have broken them all. James 2:10 -" For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one [point], he is guilty of all.
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
The 10 Commandments are God's law and if you've broken them then God says you are a sinner. We are born into a sinful nature because of Adam and Eve. 📖The Bible says in Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" God also says that sinners deserve punishment which is death and an eternity in hell. Romans 6:23 - "For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Just like a guilty man in front of a righteous judge, one day we will kneel in front of God. Being guilty of breaking HIS commandments (Gods Laws) we will be sentenced to hell because God is just. BUT because God is also merciful HE made a way through Jesus Christ who was God and came in the form of his creation, (man) and lived a sinless life and died on the cross to take our punishment for us. HE was our replacement, he gave his life willingly as a sacrifice. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." He gave us the GREATEST GIFT in the world- ETERNAL LIFE. The ONLY thing we have to do is accept that gift. That is what Grace is. Grace is getting what you don't deserve. To accept this gift all you have to do is pray and repent of our sin and put our trust and faith in Jesus Christ. John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I AM ......(see next comment)
My heart melts to see these two. My son has his fathers dimples for sure. This was his first trip to the beach. 🌊

Santa Monica Beach is by far the best beach I have ever been to! What's your favorite beach?
My name is Katherine and for those new here WELCOME! 😜 I am a wife to a very handsome small town blue eyed guy with a HUGE sense of humor. Everyday is an adventure with him. My husband Josh works for @danzeisendairy Which is a local dairy in Phoenix that sells milk in glass bottles. You have to try their milk 🥛. He loves❤️his job. AND... I LOVE MINE! •

I am a mom of 3 boys under 4 years old. I really feel God has called me to be a homemaker. I stay at home with our boys and blog full time. My home is my haven and I'm seeking out exactly what God wants me to do and be as a housewife. It's more then folding laundry and doing dishes. It is about serving God through my ministry in my home. I don't know it all but as I learn and grow as a wife and mother, I share my stories and struggles on my blog and a little here on Instagram. I personally know how it feels to look at moms who try and seem like they have it all together. Transparency and honest motherhood is what I am ALL ABOUT! •

My goals with my blog is to help other moms love being a homemaker. I want to help anyway I can to make motherhood and marriage easier. I am planning to post more about those topics. A little more about me: I love photography, telling stories, and reflecting on things I am currently learning. I love connecting with other mamas,  bloggers and business women. I believe in community over competition. •

My favorite place in the world is WA state. I LOVE:🍦🍪🍟🍕🥓🍔🍌
My eyes are green and not with envy😳. Hot cheetoes are BOMB or LIT🔥 as the young kids are saying now a days. I am mixed like a caramel macchiato. I like to call skin tones by dessert like vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Which means I am half vanilla and half chocolate. There is a tad bit of strawberry (Native American) in there too. Well that's all I've got for today....NOW WHAT ABOUT YOU? •
NAME TWO FACTS ABOUT YOU!
Last one of the Houdini Estate I promise! We're back in Phoenix and I'm missing how green everything was over there. I was raised in Washington State 🌲 and after living in Arizona 🌵 for the past couple years I am pretty homesick.
