My mental health toolbox

I don’t know any softer way to put this than just coming right out and stating the obvious….  the collective energy (here, on IG, and in the world) is heavy.  I feel it when I’m speaking with many of you, on social media, and in the voices of friends and family. Things feel a little

How I’m feeling as we start the New Year

I started writing this post a few days ago and just hit delete (on purpose, but nonetheless, scrapped the whole damn thing).  Ugh.  It’s ok, it was junk.   It just didn’t feel right.  I don’t know.  Something about starting the year with all these grand lessons I learned from last year and what I want

Saying good bye to “Grace In The Crumbs”

A little over four years ago, I launched Grace in the Crumbs.  At the time, that’s who I identified myself as.  A stay-at-home-mom, struggling to find her identity, while taking care of four itty bitty littles, constantly wiping crumbs off the floor while holding back tears, and looking for grace anywhere she could.

Instead of just rushing through my day mindlessly, I’ve made a conscious over the years to slowly start weaving in

Answering your questions on sobriety

One of the most unexpected, yet important, conversations I’ve had with all of you recently has been around my journey into sobriety. Something I personally was never planning for myself, nor something I ever would have imagined writing about on this platform. And yet, here we are. When I first shared my story of being

Setting down the invisible weight

I’ve heard this talked about so much lately. On podcasts, in books, during conversations with friends, it’s everywhere. The “invisible weight” that we as mothers, as women, as caretakers carry.  It’s been around for decades, but something we’re just beginning to talk about.   And while I wholeheartedly believe it’s true, to be totally honest, I
