Two days from now, I’ll be 24. I love birthdays, I love celebrating other people’s’ birthdays. But this year…whoosh. This year I am 24, pregnant on my birthday (again, for the third time), two kids in tow, not even married four years, starting a small business, feeling kind of crazy.

He’s currently going through a phase where he’s constantly asking, “Mommy, hold you?”Continue reading “Playing God”
My name is Janelle: a wife to a graphic designer, a mom to two boys, and a woman in awe of a mighty God. I am a young mom. I stay at home with my boys everyday and pray that my actions are displaying the Gospel of Jesus. I spend a lot of my time watchingContinue reading “New Beginnings”
