That moment you realize all that time you thought your daughter was playing quietly she was actually SPOONFEEDING HER BABY DOLL YOUR FACE CREAM! (She was, however, doing it very quietly) 😳😳

When you have FAMILY from South Africa visiting and you're so excited you can't hardly stand it!!! We have no family at all in the area so when they do come visit we have a lot of feelings. And we show them all the things and take them to all the sports events and dance recitals and they holler real loud and our kids think it's MAGIC!! My mom was the oldest of three sisters. This is her youngest sister and a favorite aunt all the way from Grahamstown. Happy Friday to us!!! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦
lisajobaker : @simebelthite howzit!! πŸ˜‰
ajay615 : You share smiles!
simebelthite : @lisajobaker Ja no lekker ✌️
studioyukojones : Beautiful smiles! I know the feeling - my entire family lives in Japan and I rarely get to see them, and it's not easy some times :) Hope you get to enjoy every moment with your family βœ¨βœ¨πŸ’•

Even in our new house that we love and adore we don't have an official "guest room" or even an extra space that can double as one. Sure we have hopes and plans for one day but right now? Right now it is not so. But will that stop us hosting family that is visiting from South Africa this weekend? No way ma'am, not even for a second. Because while we don't have a guestroom we do have a master bedroom and with clean sheets and fresh blankets it will absolutely do for the next four days while mom and dad bunk in with the kids. EVERYONE WINS!! Please don't make the mistake I made for years and miss out on hospitality because you're hyperventilating about the size of your house. Big hospitality is always a matter of the heart and not of the architecture. Here's to mismatched chairs, mattresses on the floor, and all your people in one space making memories together!! πŸ’—πŸ’—

I think we're all tired of the narrative that "serious" theology doesn't include Cheerios, diapers, laundry, and dishes. I'm not sure any of us believe that. But sometimes I still hear the rumblings, the worries from moms who think what they do doesn't measure up because they don't do it on a stage. If that's you, I wrote this blog post for you. Just click the link in my profile to read it. (Photo from our last rental house).
made_perfectly_imperfect_me : Any ministry is big in Gods eyes! Can't wait to read!
mpriset : @ohblessyourheart
epoynor : Children are " big ministry!"
jennie_nichols : Thank you! I needed to hear that today. πŸ’—

faith20ten : Listening to the audio version. Only 3 chapters in and this has stirred so many emotions. Beautiful book! Thank you!
lisajobaker : @faith20ten yay!!
lisajobaker : @siangautier yes!! Should be at any Christian store.
stashbuilderbox : I love your book sooo much. I read it right after I had my 3rd girl (3 girls in 4 years). She had colic beyond belief and would scream her guts out for 3.5 hours every.single.night with no consuling. I had a CEO husband with an incredibly busy schedule, a newborn and balancing everything else in life. I pretty much laughed and cried through every single chapter sitting with my newborn reading it in my iPad into the wee Hours of the morning. I appreciate you so very much for writing it and God leading you to write it because it was EXACTLY what I was needing at that moment! πŸ’•πŸ’•

People sometimes ask me how we keep the common space in our house so tidy when we have three little kids. Well, if you saw my previous post of my daughter's bedroom you would understand. It is simple. This is a matter of life and death -- mama's sanity. πŸ˜† Having the central area of the house cool, calm and collected is the ONLY way I survive the apocalypse that sometimes lurks behind the kids' closed bedroom doors. Emphasis on the word, CLOSED πŸ˜‰ They are responsible for their own spaces. And while I'll assist them in the clean up, the only space I truly own is this one. That works for us. Because whatever's working for you is what works, man. #Solidarity (Thank you @dayspringcards and @ftdflowers for the gorgeous flowers!)

renee_cook : Yesss!!!! Cannot wait for this. Mine are little still- 3 and almost 2. What works for us is having minimal toys in the house period. We rent a 950 sq ft house that has only living room, kitchen and 3 bedrooms. Slowly starting to move toys from a hitch in living room into their shared room. Can't wait till they're all in there. What works for us right now since they basically just dump stuff out and make a mess all day is "10 minute tidy" before naps and then again before bed. Everyone pitches in to clean everything as fast as possible. And I am learning to live with more clutter than I'd like in the main areas of the house for a season.
lizbysmash : Yes! Keep the chaos in their rooms behind closed doors! I do insist on a pathway to their bed and dresser, but other than that I've nearly given up on the Lego explosions that are my boys' rooms.
carissabarney : You? Are a genius.

I walked into her bedroom. And then I slowly walked back out again. 😳
closer2667 : Couldn't do it! Couldn't just walk back out! Wish I could! But nope couldn't do it!
jenamomma : I wait till I REALLY need some quite time to myself. Then I power clean all three of yhe kids rooms... make the toys look super inviting and with such nice rooms they all play independently for HOURS!!! Even the messes produce beautiful moments ;)
niksnaks08 : @nessabatey remind you of anyone?
nessabatey : Omg it's her twin!!! @niksnaks08 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
