I failed my child

I’ve debated on whether or not I was going to share this, but at the same time I want to be honest and open with everyone. Then I came to the realization that there are others in my shoes as well, maybe I can learn from you. My daughter, age 8, was diagnosed with depression and anxiety yesterday. After exhausting every option I could think of over the last year, I decided to turn to our doctor for help and guidance. I myself have battled this over half of my life, likely longer but it wasn’t until I was in middle school I actually got help for this. I feel like I failed her, is there more I could have done? Did I not do something, am I not doing enough? Should I have gotten her help sooner?

She is a beautiful, intelligent, kind little girl with big dreams of Harvard someday. She isn’t one to ever be unkind to others, yet finds it hard to find friends. We try to reassure her that having one best friend is better than ten fake friends, but it still deeply hurts her when someone doesn’t want to be her friend or she feels like they don’t want to be. I’m just not sure how to help her or be there for her. If anyone has any suggestions or is in a similar situation please feel free to reach out to me, if you prefer to do it privately you an email me at familynfaithblog@gmail.com

Thanks for being my ear to listen today, God Bless!

I cover myself in Glitter

It’s everywhere. I’m pretty sure there isn’t a part of my house that is free of glitter anymore. I’m often covered head to toe, and had glitter in my hair before it became the odd trend that it has. I don’t actually mean for it to, but it has a way of just sticking to everything. A year ago I began my journey with FamilyNFaith, as both a blog and a business. For the most part I’ve kept them separate, but I’m starting to think that I should offer a few of my items online as well. img_0489

Outside of the the obvious reason of extra income, I began my business because I want to be able to help others too. Thanks to the custom tumblers our family has been able to help several others over the months, and hope to double that in 2018.  God has blessed our family with this wonderful opportunity and I know he will continue to guide us. Later this week I plan to launch our shop on this site, make sure you follow FamilyNFaith to stay up to date on new products. You can also see new products on instagram following ashley.k.herr or hashtag #familynfaith or join our facebook shop.  We do custom orders but there is usually a month or more wait list due to high volume of orders. faith over fear
