The Laughs and Jesus Blog

God shows his hand in so many of my everyday life scenarios - from poop to pork butts.
How could I keep any of that to myself?

(Oh and this is where it all began more than a decade ago when I began writing as the Cape Wearing Mom. My sister actually made me a cape and I even wore it in public. #truestory )

Laughs & Jesus for the Single Mom Launches Today on Amazon

I Wrote a Book.

You know how people say things like, “you should write a book” or “one day I’ll write a book about this”? Well I did! {Pause for me to catch my breath. AGGHHH! EEEK!} Ever since I was a teenager, I knew God called me to write. To see this book, Laughs & Jesus for the Single Mom, released on Amazon […]

Do Nothing

Do nothing. That sentence sounds like such a simple thing, doesn’t it? It’s just two little words and it sounds like a pretty easy thing to do. Just stop what you’re doing and now you’re doing nothing. That’s how it works, right?  It literally doesn’t take anything to do nothing.  Or does it? ? So this was the line of […]

I Was the Easter Bunny’s Boss the Day Things Went Very Wrong

Once upon a time, I was in charge of marketing for shopping centers. What does that mean? Well if you asked my 4 year old daughter at the time, she’d say I worked in the bathroom at the mall. She was partly right since my office was next to the food court restrooms and I did make sure housekeeping kept […]

Empty Easter Eggs

My childhood was a lie. I completely missed out. What’s worse is that because I didn’t know, I did the same thing to my kids. I only learned about the lies after they were grown. So please, for the love of Easter egg hunts everywhere, let me save you from making the same mistake and scaring your children. When I […]

Fighting Coyotes with a Ceiling Fan Duster

Ever play that game where you’re asked to determine which item in a group of things doesn’t belong? Sometimes I think my life is one big game like that. I certainly felt that way the other night at 9:54 pm when the evening included coyotes, a missing Amazon package and a ceiling fan duster. It started with a text from […]

Ever Feel LIke Something’s Missing?

Ever feel like you should have something that you don’t? Like you just know there’s a piece missing even though you’re sure it was never there in the first place. There’s just a gaping hole where something should have been. I have felt this way for decades and I finally figured out what it is I’m missing. I solved the […]

Raising Orange Flags

It was my husband’s idea. I just want to get that out there. Most people are conditioned to look out for things that don’t seem right or are potentially harmful. Watch out for red flags, we say. So it’s perfectly natural that everyone who’s come by our house lately has stopped, gawked, and crossed the road to walk on the […]

Ever Pray for a Toilet? 

I did. I prayed for the toilet. You might think I meant I had to go to the bathroom so badly, that I prayed I would find a toilet close by. That assumption is a good one considering my well-documented passion for good restrooms and the need to find them often as well as being a toilet paper expert, but […]

What Are You Afraid Of?

If someone ever asks me that question, I follow it up with an inquiry of my own. How much time do you have?  You see there’s a master list of things I’m afraid of with subcategories, footnotes and addendums. You have the animal category that includes my #1 arch nemesis – s-n-*-k-e-s -, a word I don’t even say. Then […]
