My Thoughts on the Movie Fireproof

Years ago when I was faced with divorce many of my online friends said that before I made my final decision, we should watch the movie Fireproof. This movie is Christian based so it may deter some people, however, me being of an open mind wanted to watch this film. While I can’t say this film deterred the inevitable amicable divorce, it did open my mind to how a marriage should work. I am sharing my thoughts on the movie Fireproof today because so many are faced with the challenge of how to reconnect with their spouse. About Fireproof Kirk […]

Divorce Could Create Financial Hardships … at First

Everyone has bad days, even months, but nothing hits you harder than a life event, such as divorce, that leaves you financially jaw dropped. Divorce happens very often these days, so it’s a life event that many can relate to, I’m sure. I was divorced in 2010, with that came a change in household income. I was no longer the work from home Mom who added income to the household’s main form of income; I was it. I became the sole financial supplier in the home. It was very difficult to get used to managing money that I had coming […]

You Need to Separate From your Son

Prior to the diagnosis of Autism this past week, we met with Aj’s counselor. I say Aj’s counselor but really he helps my ex husband and I to move forward with Aj and occasionally he does play a game to interact with Aj, overall he is more there to ensure we are keeping up with the parenting techniques that work for Aj. While I will tell you that I would highly recommend Aj’s counselor, I was left feeling jaw dropped at an appointment we had about a month ago. Here’s what happened… On this particular visit the emotional connection between […]

My Plain and Simple View on What Co-Parenting Is

Co-parenting to me is what I refer to when two parents are no longer residing in the same household, they have separated, divorced or just broke up having never been married, but they have children who bind them forever. That is co-parenting. Two parents who have children who bind them forever. Plain -n- Simple. I tend to look at co-parenting in very simple terms because after all, I have already been through 11 years of co-parenting my daughter and now about a couple years or so of co-parenting my boys. My ex husband and I resided in same household off […]

{Personal Story of the Past} I was That Little Girl #divorce #parents #abuse

Divorce or separation hits everyone differently. This goes with death and birth. Each human being, whether grown adult or child, responds to life’s challenges quite differently. Being unique is what sets us apart from each other, yet also makes us work together very well. The story I wish to share today is from my memory banks of many moons ago. A young girl, around age 12, was found with two parents being divorced. While this young girl could totally see that her parents were better off apart due to a multitude of reasons, she still missed her Dad terribly. This […]

“This Love is Forever” a Book for Children of Divorce Giveaway and Review

A mother and daughter teamed up to write a positive book about divorce, it’s difficult for children of all ages to experience divorce. I, myself, was a product of divorce having gone through that with my parents around age 12. I recall being okay with my parents being apart because I knew for many reasons they could no longer be married, the signs of their love falling apart were very evident to my sister and I, but it was still difficult to swallow not having my father around every day as he was the previous years of my life. I […]

This Could Be The Hardest Part of Co-Parenting

The challenges that arise with co-parenting are plentiful, you see when you raise your children in a home where both parents reside then the fact that each parent is slightly or completely different can be balanced for the most part. Having a balanced household between Mom and Dad working together is amazing but when you take those same two parents, separate them and place children in the middle, all heck could break loose. It’s sometimes difficult for parents to step back and let the other parent do their thing without interfering, even in a household where two parents reside which […]

Was Marriage More Eternal To Those Who Waited?

I often wonder if marriage lasted longer with those who waited to have sexual relations until after they were wed? Who knows exactly what it is that keeps two people together in a marriage while the other couple is siting in divorce court ready to point fingers, lay blame and argue their way through an ugly divorce that ends up hurting all involved, including themselves. I recently found an article shared by a friend on a Facebook titled You never Marry the Right Person and I just had to read this. I am always intrigued by people’s opinions on marriage, […]
