Grandpa’s Hands

As a child, it was your hands that were getting down and dirty, scraping the barbecue, planting seeds, trimming rosebushes, stopping my spinning chair at the kitchen table. I remember watching your hands place toothpicks in the petals and stem of delicate passion flowers so they would stay open. I remember your hands holding the […]

Two Years Old

God’s amazing hand in our life by granting us His gracious gift of Simeon James two years ago is just astonishing on so many levels. I can not believe the adventure of his entrance into the world of the oxygen-breathing was two years ago. My little boy loves so much and so well. Books, tea, […]

Beautiful crying forth

As I contemplate my thirteen precious children today, on PAIL (pregnancy and infant loss) Remembrance Day, I am praising God for His beautiful crying forth of ideas which created each one of them. I still daily get to set my eyes on four of them, and I am daily blown away by His imagination in […]

Teach Them Diligently

This week, I participated in a conversation about how to keep a Bible routine with the children in your home. It seems both super simple and overwhelmingly complicated at the same time. God granted me four precious children to train for His Kingdom. What an immense responsibility! In some sense, I’ve only got one shot […]

Busy Bookworms

Our summer has continued to be busy, busy, busy! But one constant has remained despite the crazy schedules: namely, busy bookworms. My bookworms do not take summer break. (nor would I want them to!) We have three library cards for the county library, and we can check out fifty items at a time on each card… […]

Family Loves

I said a few days ago that in my journey of teaching people, one of the main things I am doing is teaching my children what to love and how to love. Over the last few days I have thought numerous times about my children someday no longer being children. It’s happening right before my […]

My Pumpkin Patch

Published by under Family,Photography

So it’s not looking like we are going to make it to a real pumpkin patch this year… but the pumpkin Gabriel picked out at the grocery store a couple weeks ago is pretty cute… and I have my own little patch of coppery punkins! I love them. They sure are sweet as pumpkin pie!

Big Kid Joys

I love babies. My mom might smile and tell you that’s largely because I’ve had “easy babies.” But let’s be honest: to at least a certain extent, babies are babies, and babies are also honed by the hard work of their mama. So while God definitely did give my babies their blessed personalities and natures, […]

Life as SAHM is (More Than) Enough

I praise my King, that He and His grace are sufficient (which means not only enough, but completely and totally filling it up to all the corners!) even for the moments where I muse about the following… where I wonder about myself and my work… where I ask Him, is it enough? and am I […]
