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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Lenses

It never ceases to amaze me how our experiences shape and color the lenses through which we look. Even something as simple as a devotional title this morning… it struck me… My eyes read “Riding the Rollercoaster of Miscarriage.” I was surprised to find, upon reading it & then going back to the top to […]

There are Days…

There are days when I am THAT mom. When I bring my daughter to storytime at the library even though she is coughing with a bark like a seal. When she sits in the front row, squished between total stranger toddlers, and proceeds to loudly make friends between conversations, giggles, coughs, and interacting with the […]
