One Year Ago Today…

Thomas was in so much pain, he couldn’t get out of bed. What we thought was a sore muscle, ended up being a visit to the emergency room that turned our lives upside down. We didn’t know it, but we were in for the ride of our lives.


I cannot believe it has been a year. We have been through so much over the past year. I am grateful for the past year. We have seen our lowest lows and some of our highest highs through it all. It was the wildest roller coaster I have ever ridden for sure. Through it all God showed Himself. God comforted. God healed. God Provided.

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

James 1:2-4

Delicious Coffee for Trim Healthy Mamas

When I first began following the Trim Healthy Mama plan, I was disappointed to learn that I could not have my favorite coffee sweeteners. I love to have a cup of coffee in the morning with a healthy splash of flavored creamer and sugar. I knew I would have to find a way to still enjoy my morning coffee and stay on plan.002

I experimented with different ingredients and I think I have come up with my favorite. It is so simple, yet so delicious!
