I’m officially a WAHM!!!

I’m so excited! God has blessed me so.  God is so amazing!  Its funny how God operates.   I was put in a situation where I could  not find a job that was flexible enough for me to work, go to school and study, and spend time with my chidren so I’ve been in and out of work since February.   I quite my last job in June and made school and kids my first priority.  God blessed me to be able to pay my bills, feed my children, and keep a roof over our head.  I started teaching my kids at home while unemployed, mainly because I could not afford $1000 a month in childcare (I didn’t want to give someone else the pleasure of spending time with my kids for 8 hours a day).  Teaching at home was a wonderful experience for me and the kids, we bonded more and I developed more patience with them.

Now that I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work at home I would like to home school.  I don’t really know if I will have enough time in one day to work 6 to 8 hours a day five days a week.  Homeschool, attend evening classes, have dinner ready by 5 and study, and extra activities for my daughter. 

I’ve came up with a schedule, but when school start for me in the fall there may be a conflict.

Here’s the schedule:

7:00 a.m  wake up.  breakfast

8:00 – 10:00 a.m  Learning time

10 a.m – 12pm    snack, playtime, nap

12:30 p.m  lunch

1-3p.m.  learning time.

3p start dinner

4p playtime with daddy

5p dinner

6p T.V and/ or bath and storytime

7p dad put kids to sleep and I began work until 1a.m.

There’s going to be a big conflict come Fall.  I’m not going to get much sleep.  Someone help me I’m overly excited about working at home and I don’t see how ballet and cheernastics is going to fit or my evening classes. 

My solution is to prepare meals ahead and freeze them, and send them to preschool, but that’s not what I really want.  So, anyone with suggestions on how I can balance out my life, any quick or frozen recipes, tips etc.  please share I do need you.

I love reality T.V!!!

Tonight I was so busy doing everything and I did something that I usually wouldn’t do, that is, sit my children in front of the t.v before bedtime.  I know that wasn’t a smart thing to do, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to do something out of the ordinary.  Tonight was the premiere of the new season of Run’s House, which is my favorite show, just because the family is so positive and close(I think they may be the Huxtables of the millineum). 

I put the t.v on MTV and told my children to sit there until I was ready to read them a story.  Their eyes were glued to the television.  I’ve never seen my children so interested in something on t.v other than kid stuff.  They were interested in the new baby and they laughed whenever the baby made a sound or when someone played with the baby.  So I think they were more interested in the baby more so than the show, but I’m so happy this show had them occupied while I fold laundry took out the trash and  do other household things; while they stay up later than usual and distract me from my duties.

I don’t approve of my kids watching alot of t.v, but I think I may record this show on the DVR so next time I need them to come off their natural high this will be the cure.

How do I know if I’m a good Christian?

I’ve been a Christian for many years and I’ve back slid, gave my life to Christ, back slid, gave my life to Christ.  So, now I have given my life to Christ for the umpteenth time and this time I’m for real.  Everything I do I do it for Christ, but I’m having a hard time doing what may be important in the eyes of God.

I pray the Lord would change my heart and make me holy.  I pray that the Lord will place it on my heart to read his word, so that I may know how to live my life and raise my children the way he want me to.

My plan for being a better Christian this time is to not just be a bench member at church, but to be active, but I don’t know my calling yet, so I don’t know what it is I want to do, so I pray that I find my calling and my purpose in life, so I can make a difference in others lives who may have the same problems as I. 

I want my children to know who the Lord is and why it is important for God to be in our lives.  I want my children to live their life for Christ.  I pray that they will love the Lord as he love them and they do the works of his ministry and I do they same.  For all of you Christians out there I need your prayer and encouragement, I will pray for you as I need you to pray for me.

I love the Lord he has blessed me so and he love me more than I love myself.  Who am I not to give myself to him and live my life for him.

It’s easy being a Christian. NOT!

I’ve been struggling with Christianity since I was 16 years old.  That’s all because I surround myself with the wrong people.  Everything I do I ask myself ” Will Jesus do this?” but it’s not easy.   I have an issue with fornicating, its not something I’m proud of but I guest it’s a part of life. 

This year I promised myself (not God) that I will not participate in any premarital sex.  The first two weeks of the year were easy until I let my significant other of five years back in my life.  I did something I regret and I was punished for it, but I think that helped me to become stronger towards saying no and standing my ground,  when trying to fight the temptation of sex.   

It’s not easy being Christian if you don’t like following rules like myself.  I like to be free and do as I please.  But life is about following rules rather it is a higher supernatural power or a higer authority in your workplace.  I don’t like the fact that I will be puunished for having sex and I’m not married.  I would like to be able to  give my man the kind of loving I want to give him when I want to give it to him (he should marry me than)haha! and there not be a consequence for our actions. 

It’s so hard when you are surrounded by people who try to influence you to do what they want you to do for their own pleasure and they don’t care about their salvation.

It’s hard when no one in your life want to walk  with Jesus.  It’s hard when everyone in your life live by their own rules and you get a little jealous because they’re commiting every sin there is and they seem to be more blessed than you.  It’s not easy when trying to find yourself in Christ and no one in your life care about who he is or his works.

So what I’m trying to say is, when walking the walk with Jesus, keep motivating people in your life.  The ones that really love him.  Not people who will take advantage of your vulerability.  Life is choice driven.  Choose Jesus and love him as he has loved us.

Peace, Love, and Happiness

Parenting is not a joke!!!

I have two small children, a 3 year old daughter and a 2 year old son and sometimes I just don’t know what to do with them.  I’m a full time student I and think parenting and school don’t mix.  I just can’t handle them both.  I know this isn’t something new, going school and raising children, but for me it’s one of the hardest jobs in the world.  My son is a mama’s boy and he’s going through terrible 2’s.  My daughter is a sweetheart, but love to be with me, ask a lot of question, she just like to ask alot  of questions in general, especially when I’m studying late.  I love my children more than anything in this world, but they get on my last nerve.  Did I mention how much my son cry.  It is nerve racking.  I can’t find a babysitter or find a job, because my children are so attached to me.  Am I the only parent who sometimes don’t like their children? I know I sound like I’m frustrated with them, but I’m not, I just wonder if I’m the only parent dealing with this and if there is some type of remedy for it that I need to know about.  I’m very patient with my children and I spend lots of time with them obviously.  I guest I need a break from them, so that I could  find myself outside of my children.  They are my life.  I’m a single parent so I don’t get out much unless I go to school or church. 

I thought about joining a mommy and me group, but can’t find one in my area.  My life is boring and plain, that’s why I’m on a journey to living a better life.  I must say I do feel bad for feeling that way about my children now that I write about, but than again I look at my son and I see him throwing toys at our puppy and then I don’t feel so bad anymore.  I really just want to know how so many parents stay home with their children all day and not feel this way about them sometimes.  Am I wrong for feeling this way or am I not alone.  Mothers let me know how to deal with this.  Tell your story.

Peace, Love, and Happiness.

first time blog

I can’t believe this is my first time ever writing a blog.  I created a page months ago.  I guest school kept me from writing, but I am excited to do so. 

I created a blog mainly to get things off my chest, help and inspire the ones who will read it. 

I mainly want to talk about my journey to finding myself in Jesus Christ.  My issues with myself with trying to live a healthy life and lose weight and preping my body for the future when the time come for me to have joint problems and all types of issues that come with old age. 

I want to be happy and I have yet to find happiness in anything I’ve done in my 25 years of life.  I’ve secretly suffered from depression and anxiety my whole life ( maybe a family illness) and I can’t take depression and worry everywhere I go anymore, I’ve got to let it go.

My journey to living a better life is to find myself in Jesus and do the things that are pleasing in Gods eyes, it’s not easy, but I’m trying.  I’ve started a charity drive and I try to help others as best as I can. 

My journey is not only about finding myself in Jesus but going green, buying organic and natural ( it’s sooo expensive), but I’m trying. 

I will be writing about so many things but mostly about my journey to finding happiness.  I’m interested in alot of issues so who know what I may write.  But again I am excited about this and look forward to know if people will be interested in what I have to write about.

PEACE.  For now
