A Letter To The Mama Deciding To Potty Train

A Letter To The Mama Deciding To Potty Train www.lifeofbrucks.com
Dear Mama ,

So you’ve begun looking…googling…pinterest-spying…

You’ve bought all the gadgets, gizmos and do-hickeys…

You’ve done the three-day, two-day and the just let-er-rip theory…

Yet your child still isn’t sitting pretty on the potty…

What’s a mom to do…

A Letter to the Women Who Criticized My Home


They have the power to give life…

or death.

You were a straight shooter. You walked into my laundry room and made no qualms about saying how ridiculous the set up was. You complained about how low the machines sat. You squawked about how the dirty piles just laid out there in the open taking up the space in my dining room.

Resolution Solutions: A Resolutionary Way of Thinking

“Resolutionary!“-Daddy Brucks


Ok folks, many people either love resolutions or loathe them. I am not one to pick sides, but I personally am in the camp of loving them, (please don’t hate me), but it wasn’t always this way!

I had times of desire to change aspects of my life, I would try and try again, but to no avail. At some point I would give up, forget about it for some time and then be reminded the following year of all that I had failed at.

After years of growth with God, He finally showed me (or I finally accepted)  a “resolutionary” way of thinking!  I was going about it all wrong and the moment I grasped this new concept, it made all the difference in the world…and I’m not talking about being positive or having the right support in your lives (although helpful)…I’m talking about something that appears to be the opposite of wanting change…

Are you ready for this profound, life altering  concept….you might not be so happy once you see it…be prepared…

Marriage: When your own advice is far from the best…

Marriage Advice Life of Brucks


Proverbs 28:26 (NIV)

Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.

Proverbs 16:16 (NIV)

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!

Proverbs 13:10 (NIV)

Where there is strife, there is pride, but wisdom is found in those who take advice.

Proverbs 31:26 (NIV)

She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.


           Marriage is hard sometimes. Truly a test of every part of you…the selfishness and pride you wish would leave you just creeps up and nips at your spouse until they start to nip back. It can get down right ugly at times…but God has a way!

Happy Birthday to Me

              Its dark in here, only my thoughts and my imagination surround me. I think and wonder, smile and cry, but no one can see me. They sense I am with them and know that I will one day join their world. I know when that day will come and today is that day. I sit and wait for the itch, the urge, the push I need to look out and see the world I have read and observed over the last few years of my hidden life. Today I am born into the world of writing and although the first few moments will be filled with fear and anxiety, it will soon be my new normal.  Here I go..off to meet the rest of you.
