I’m in Mexico with my family. We are volunteering our time for an Operation Smile medical mission. I’ve been trying to make this trip for years, and we’re finally here.
I didn’t imagine the first day of summer would be spent here, but I believe it’s exactly where we need to be right now.
After Rain graduated from kindergarten we hit the airport with my oldest daughter and my husband David. I brought with me an open mind and heart, but had no idea what to expect. I hoped to do my part for an organization that I have been supporting for four years but I also hoped to teach my children about...
Today I'm drowning, trying to manage the end of the year chaos. The last day of school can't come soon enough, it s been a hectic year with four kids and four schools to juggle.
Between 15 candles, gift cards and handwritten notes to all the people who have influenced my children this year, it's been a bit overwhelming to say the least.
One of my challenges this year has been deciding how much is enough to give, and for our family, how much may be too much.
There are so many people to recognize and I truly believe that teachers and families co-parent together. The reality is that teachers...

My dressing room is wrapped and I am back to real life!
Spent the day carpooling kids, baking corn bread and making a home cooked dinner with love for my family. I miss the ballroom already but I'm grateful to be back at home making up for lost mommy time.
I wanted to share a look back through my camera at some of my favorite moments from DWTS: Season 16. (View the slideshow here)
This is what possibility looks like….
Imagine, want, visualize and then go take it!
Here's Derek Hough, in deep thought the night before the finale. He BLEW us all away this season and that freestyle is one...
During our live DWTS show last night, we heard the Oklahoma news as it was unfolding. It made us sad and made us scared for our own families while we were at work.
Later that night, watching the news as many mothers were reunited with their kids and many were not, it scared me to think of how my work could separate my family and me.
What would I do if a natural disaster struck and I couldn't get to my children? I started thinking about our safety plan (or lack thereof...).
Having a safety plan in place is so important for families and a comfort for everyone. Do you have a friend to call on...
Story telling is a precious and invaluable way of holding on to your history and never forgetting. It’s a way to create memories that can last a lifetime.
I love to lay in bed on some nights with Rain and talk instead of reading a book. She often asks me to tell her a story. We love the “Story of Rain,” filled with colorful details of when I carried her, as well as details of her birth and milestones. I realize how many magical moments can be forgotten, but reliving them in story form brings back so many precious moments.
We’re so lucky today to have access to the video options on our...
I met a real live ANGEL today, her name is Tawanda Jones…you can see her and learn about her inspiring story on the Dancing With The Stars website.
After watching her package before the show, I sat in my dressing room and thought about what it’s like to make a difference in other people’s lives and how important it is to give. As a mother, I give to my family every day, automatically and often unnoticed. But when I give to them, I see how positively it affects them.
I try to tell my kids positive things every day. I try to support them, their goals, and their efforts. I try to praise...
The whole country has been transfixed by the events that happened in Boston. The tragedy has stirred up a lot of feelings in my family and provoked many questions from my younger children.
At first I tried to shelter Rain from the reality of what took place and hide the horrific truth behind the story. Our news coverage is so picture driven and hard to avoid.
I tried to call it “an accidental explosion," but with eyes wide open and super sonic ears; she heard too much from too many sources. Most children do and many questions came up…”How did the explosion start, who did that, why did...
