Juvenile Justice League - 5k Wild Walk

It's hard to believe that I am already approaching my next race! I'm really looking forward to this one, as it is for an organization dedicated to spreading the gospel and reaching the unsaved. I might also be looking forward to this event because,... well... I don't have to run. :) It's a WILD WALK at the Zoo.

About Miami Youth for Christ
From their website 

Mission

YFC reaches young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to prayer and the Word of God. To have a passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.

How does YFC attain their mission? 

YFC has a program or a volunteer or an employee perfectly suited for EVERYONE! Seriously, I am amazed each Spring as I hear the testimonies of people (young and old) who have been impacted by YFC. The Lord has truly blessed that ministry, and I am honored to walk in their event.

JUVENILE JUSTICE LEAGUE
Last March, my husband and I were convicted to do more for Miami Youth for Christ. Every year we go to the fundraising banquet, give a donation and we might remember to pray for the ministry on a regular basis. ... You know how it goes right? 

Well. THIS year, Captain America and I decided that no matter what, we would participate in the Zoo Walk. Each year YFC hosts a Wild Walk through the Miami Zoo in order to raise money.  Captain America and I went with the whole Justice League theme because well... the man who introduced me to YFC has dedicated his whole life to sharing the Love of Christ with those who need it most (a.k.a. EVERYONE!) Every time I walk away from a conversation with this person, I am refreshed and encouraged to do more for Christ. I count myself blessed to know him.  So, for one of our Heroes, we will walk in support of  Youth for Christ and the Juvenile Justice program.  

How can I get involved? 

1) Pray.
  • Pray for the ministry of Youth for Christ. 

2) Join.

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.


Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
