I knew if we were going to increase our income… it would need to be me.

Adam was already driving an hour away to work each day… we lived 1,000 miles away from our friends and family.

“You may not be able to eat perfect… you can you make a healthy choice every single day”

15 years or so we had an awakening… we knew we had to make drastic changes to what we ate… even though we THOUGHT we were eating healthy!

I was randomly passing out… and doctors really couldn’t tell me why.

They ran all these tests… and nothing gave any clear answers.

Keep the computer in a family room.

It’s important for your child to access the computer in an area where you can monitor what they are doing. This way, you can check in to see what they’re doing.

8 Rules of Marriage

 8 Rules for Marriage: After 15 years together, we have learned a few lessons… 

1. Learn new things together.

After 15 years, you can still learn new things about each other through new experiences.
