Courtney is the wife of Daniel Henry, her high school sweetheart and is the mother to Aleana, Avah and Daniel. She works and resides in the Frog Capital of the World-Rayne, LA. She is a graduate of LSUE and a former boutique owner. She is a self-proclaimed planner addict who loves brownies, Saints football and would rather not be wearing shoes (even though she has a closet full). When she’s not chasing after kids she’s probably organizing or reading. She could live off coffee and cookies, although it would be frowned upon.

Dealing with the Darkness

My daughter stood up, turned the lamp off and laid back down. My mind races, but it’s time to settle down and prepare for the week ahead. That's not what happened. Darkness, literally, is the absence of...
