Enough with keeping up with the Jones’s or the Kardashian’s. I’m trying to keep up with me, myself and I. If I learned anything this week it’s that what’s for me is for me and God’s timing isn’t my timing. I stopped worrying about what other people were doing and focused on keeping my own … More Time To Pull The Weeds
Self-care seems to be the new go to word. I was told I need to take more time for myself and I responded with “Really, that thought hadn’t crossed my mind.” Self-care for me in the past was hiding under the covers and sleeping. Now my focus has shifted. It wasn’t that my life was … More Self-Care
I know God only gives you what you can handle. Or at least that’s what I’m told every time I mention Sydney’s autism. I almost forgot He only gives special needs children to special parents, right? Well guess what? I’m not that special. I don’t have the inside scoop on how to parent a child … More I’m Really Not That Special Karen

I can’t throw things away. It’s a problem I have and I need an intervention. I need someone to throw things away while I watch them. Maybe I shouldn’t be home when the entire process is taking place. I didn’t watch all of the episodes with Marie Kondo. I do know that the things in … More Time to Tidy Up
I know I’m not the only one that has a race to finish. It doesn’t matter what race you are running or walking. The only thing that matters is that you make it to the finish line. Will the race be easy? Will there be hurdles and injuries along the way? Will you stumble and … More The Race
Sydney told me she needed a cellphone yesterday. I think she saw all of the other cheerleaders with their phones and she wanted one too. I told her we could talk about it at our next family meeting. Walking into the high school yesterday for her competition she reminded me of Steph Curry walking into … More When Dreams Come True
She woke up different. She no longer cared about what her enemies thought of her. She didn’t care about the gossip that floated through the air. She woke up different. She focused on her friends and the people that loved her unconditionally. She didn’t let the opinions of others deter her from her goals. She … More She’s Different
A few weeks ago I spoke with a publisher and she told me in a very nice way that I wasn’t Nicholas Sparks or a best selling author. I thought to myself I know, I’m Brooke Copher and I’m in a category all of my own. I’m not sure if I consider myself only a … More What Kind of Author Am I?
2018 was a great year. Harrison, Sydney and I achieved many goals. The goals may seem minor to you but they are huge victories for our family. Harrison’s 16th Birthday was the best celebrating back home in Michigan and enjoying a game at The Big House. That day was exciting and memorable. We went to … More Oh, What A Year!
