The Printed Word

The five hundredth anniversary of the Reformation in Europe is kind of a big deal right now. As in, I feel like I have seen it pretty much everywhere online, I attended a conference themed on it, I know local churches with Reformation Day parties this year (even ones that wouldn’t normally have gone to the trouble), […]

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… […]

He Yet Lives for God’s Glory

It has been brought to my attention three separate times over the last ten days or so that not everybody knows how Nate Wilson’s surgery turned out and how his prognosis is at this point. My bad! Life has been busy to the point of chaotic-with-good-things. And, to be fair, nobody posted anything in the […]

Praying for Nate

This morning, we continue in our prayers for one of our Christian brothers. The son of the pastor who baptized me twenty years ago. A man who married a girl from Santa Cruz, whose family and mine intersected about thirty years ago through our churches under the California sun. A man who has broadly and […]

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 […]

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, […]

Beauty for your covering

Published by under Beauty,Links

Okay friends… this is outside my norm. Outside my comfort zone. But I love to share things I love. And these things called LillaRose FlexiClips fall broadly into that category. I love these. They get my hair to look gorgeous (whoa- that might have been said all too confidently, haha!) in two minutes flat, and are […]

Long-distance and Long-time

Five years ago right now, I found out I was pregnant with my ninth baby, who came on the heels of six consecutive miscarriages. Five years ago right now, we began the process of building a home out in the country. Five years ago right now, a friend of mine emailed me a crazy idea. […]

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 […]
