New Apartment Decorating

Not too long ago, I posted pictures of our apartment that we moved to in Long Island. We lived there for about 5 months and then we had to move again!!! Mr. Rockefeller took a transfer farther out on the island, so we had to move past a certain point. Continue reading

Verses to Pray When You’re Trying to get Pregnant

When trying to conceive, you should definitely be praying that God’s will be done and that you will have a child in His timing. However, even while praying, it can become frustrating and worrisome each time that you are not pregnant. It requires a lot of patience and faith. These are some verses that I prayed over while trying to get pregnant and verses that provided comfort in my waiting. I hope they are helpful to you! Continue reading

Wedding Card Craft

I never would have guessed how many cards couples get when they get married until I was sitting at my kitchen table with my new husband, ripping open hundreds of envelopes!

Our Move to Long Island

I haven’t been blogging for quite a while because things have been crazy!

Mr. Rockefeller graduated from the academy on August 25th. Since then, he’s been doing his dream job in our area, but we knew that a move was inevitable. We loved being near both of our families and we didn’t want to move, but we want to follow God’s plan for our lives, so we decided to take the move on with a positive attitude. Mr. Rockefeller has to work wherever there are openings, which means Long Island for a couple of years.

We didn’t know where or when we would be moving for sure until the beginning of November and it turned out that we needed to be moved to Long Island by November 30th! Actually, we’ve been living here for a week and there’s a small possibility that we could get a different location on December 20th and have to move again! (We’d love a location closer to home, but another move would be crazy all over again.) Continue reading

Talk with kids

Parents have a million and one things on their plates. Even parents who truly prioritize their children sometimes forget to just sit and talk to and listen to their kids.  Continue reading
