Being Real

I don’t do social media. I am trying to be better about not spending much time every day even on emails or blogging. I think my personal biggest temptation is to look sideways and play the comparison game, especially with other mommies. Other moms (either celebrity or personal friends) seem to have it all together. […]

Journey Bread

I have been baking bread for my family since I was pregnant with Gabriel… that’s a good nine years of healthy, delicious, economical goodness right there. I have come up with a couple different staple recipes that I can whip up easily and consistently. My typical loaf bread includes whole wheat (ground right in my […]

Domestic Outfitting by “Little Outfitters”

Excuse me, please, while I take a moment to give a proper shout-out to my friend Hollie and her home business, Little Outfitters. Ladies, I want to have babies, decorate my house, and be up to my elbows in flour just for excuses to use these things! Save your dollars or create a Christmas wish list, […]

He Makes All Things New

Acts 14:15 “…we bring you good news, that you should turn from vain things to the living God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.” Revelation 21:5 “And He who was seated on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new.“ Last month, I had […]

Feeling At Home

It seems to me that women typically experience shame about two things~ their bodies and their homes. … What people are craving isn’t perfection. People aren’t longing to be impressed; they’re longing to feel like they’re home. If you create a space full of love and character and creativity and soul, they’ll take off their […]

Enjoy It

What is one of the first, last, and most common things that an older & wiser woman tells a young mama? Enjoy it. Enjoy these days, because they go by all too quickly. Oh! Don’t we know it! I do not begrudge the sentiment by a long shot, nor do I hold it against the throngs who […]

Savoring Friendship & Cookies

It was obviously an early day of spring. Grey clouds and blinding sunshine danced together. Robins were bouncing happily around outside while it rained. The fire roared in our living room stove, schoolwork was spread on the table, the baby was fussing, and the big kids were doing anything but focusing on their books. I […]

Homemade Yogurt

I don’t remember exactly how long I have been making yogurt… but it’s been a couple of years now I think. We go through so much yogurt in our household each week that this is a really good way for me to save money for my family! Like with bread, this is something healthy & […]

Photo Challenge, Week Ten

Week Ten: Portrait, Environment Here is my little girl… in her child’s-version of her someday-environment! I love it. Little future homemaker. Barefoot, in a vintage dress, making cupcakes & tea. And then, just for fun, I used a post-process to give it an illustrated effect!

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 […]
