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 […]

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 […]

Walking in the Way

Come, sweetheart… come for a walk with your mama. It was not long ago that I carried you every time I went walking, but then you grew a bit and began to stretch your legs. Another little one came along then, and I carried him in my arms while holding your hand tightly in my […]

This Is Our Newest Must-Read

  You know those times when you stumble upon a great book that you just read over and over again because it’s that good? Usually I would say my favorites that fall into that category are things like The One Year Book of Hope, Teaching from Rest, Streams in the Desert, or other things in that type of category. […]

Our Daily Reads

We have been doing a lot of reading aloud together lately. A lot. Maybe it’s because I realized that I really can not split myself up to have one-on-one reading time with each kid every day of the week. So they get lumped together a bit. It is also partly because I like the children […]

Teaching People…

I have been contemplating a lot about teaching lately… Everyone says that there comes some kind of slump at the end of February… it seems to coincide with spring fever! So I decided to talk to myself, and pray with my Lord, about things quite a bit this week. I finally got tired of constantly […]

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 […]

Light

Light at the end of the tunnel. It’s an interesting phrase, cliche, concept, and reality. I remember spending months and years wondering why every light I would see would end up being a train to pummel me rather than the end of the tunnel. Just when I would glimpse hope or joy, my life would […]
