Thank A Deserving Military Veteran

This is a partnered post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. During the holidays especially, I teach my children about the importance of giving back. For the last several years we have been adopting children in the Angel Tree program. In years past, we have also participated in Operation Christmas Child. Each of these programs have … [Read more...]

Giving Back to the Community Through the Food Bank

This is a partnered post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. I've donated money and food to the local food bank. Writing a check or donating a few extra bucks during my weekly shopping trip is easy. Donating food while I'm already at the grocery store is pretty easy too, especially when they have prepackaged bags you can purchase for … [Read more...]

Share a Meal for a Bright Future

This is a partnered post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Each day in America there are 16 million children who are silently suffering from hunger. That is an insanely large number, but do you realize that it's the population of Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and Chicago combined? That is how many children are suffering … [Read more...]

Hunger – The Silent Epidemic

I’m part of the Denny’s Diners Ambassador program. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Hunger is not okay. In this day and age, there shouldn't be one person, let alone a child that has to deal with the pain of hunger. Not only does a child have to deal with the immediate affects of hunger, but it will be etched into their being and … [Read more...]

Be a Hunger Hero

I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. As always, all opinions are my own. My children don't know what the pain of hunger feels like, but that isn't the case for 16 million other American children that are living in poverty today. These 16 million children don’t have reliable access to nutritious meals … [Read more...]

A Reason to Smile

This is a partnered post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. Ahhh summer break! Now that the school year is done and my classroom is packed up, I get to have some fun at home with my three girls.  It was absolutely heart-breaking having to go back to work after the baby was born, but I consoled myself with the fact that there were … [Read more...]

Child Hunger Ends Here | Will You Join Me?

I participated in this program on behalf of ConAgra Foods and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. I find it unacceptable that one in five children don't know where there next meal is coming from. That's nearly 16 million children, enough to fill 8,000 playgrounds, that are being robbed of the promise of childhood. They are being stripped of … [Read more...]

The Power of a Smile

That first smile. Seeing your child's eyes light up and grin at you for the first time is something that every parent cherishes. As my children grow, I still marvel at how their smiles bring me such joy. Their smiles make all of the sacrifices and long hours meaningful. Their smiles make the best days even better. That is the power of a … [Read more...]
