Rest & Adventure

A couple weeks ago during communion, where the pastor prayed over my children, he included a phrase asking God to be their rest and be their adventure. I can not tell you how that has stuck with me. It has been repeated in my own prayers and in my discussions with my children, and it informs […]

A Child’s World

I set my children up with some map puzzles this morning. The eight year old with one of the world… The four year old with one of the United States… But apparently it has been a little while since we’ve done geography on this level, because the younger one suddenly bursts out, “Mommy!!

Asher Timothy is 3

How it’s possible for this sweet boy to be three years old is beyond me. Yet everybody insists that he must have turned three long ago because he is rather mature for such a young guy. And thus it is, my little boy who brings happiness to everyone and seems to carry eternity in his […]
