Thanks for visiting! I can’t wait to get to know you and link arms together as sisters.
But let me introduce myself.
I’m Marie Osborne.
A wife, mama, and writer who loves Jesus and large, non-fat lattes. As a former high school theater geek, I currently use my very limited acting and vocal training reading “Where The Wild Things Are” and singing “Jesus Loves Me” before night-night time. When I’m not laughing (loudly) with my husband, chatting (loudly) with my girlfriends, singing (loudly) with my son, or being attacked by playing with my twin girls, I’m probably binge watching Netflix during nap time.
What is this space about?
My faith is the center of my life and this blog. I became a Christian in college and have been striving to know God and follow Jesus ever since. I worked in full-time ministry for 10 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. This blog is a documentation of my insights as I grow in prayer, bible study, and most of all, relationship with Jesus.
I make fun of myself on the daily. I make it not only a habit but a personal mandate to laugh at myself and my circumstances (as loudly as possible). I find humor in everything from naptime rage to Target trips to potty training twins. Buckle up, sister. Sarcasm full steam ahead.
Homelife is central to my writing here. I love to share my adventures in motherhood, as a silly song singer, twin toddler wrangler, and making a valiant effort at pointing my kids to God. I enthusiastically pass on tips, ideas, and products that make this messy motherhood thing just a little easier.
My marriage is important to me, and yours is important to me, too. I strive to help my friends stay happily married. I try my best to remember I didn’t marry a coffee machine. I’m constantly being reminded that the daily, mundane acts of service are what really help us fall deeper in love with our spouses.
I’m an open book and share often from my struggles and personal experiences, so you will always know that you are not alone. I want us to lift each other up, living in the truth that all pregnant shapes and postpartum bodies are beautiful. I want us to be free to give and accept help often, and to be humbled and transformed by serving and accepting service. I want to break down the stigma surrounding depression and mental illness and provide hope in your darkest hour. My heart wants to encourage yours.
Most of all, I want to HELP my sisters OUT! I create free resources each month to equip and encourage you as you strive to love god and laugh often. I provide recommendations for my favorite products as well as recent reads so you don’t waste time or money on nonsense (cuz ain’t no mamas got time for that).
Oh, sister, let’s be friends! Let’s sip coffee together and share jokes and frustrations and joys and tears and all the wonderful, delicious, heart-breaking, hard things in life.
Loving God and Laughing Often. Together.
