Year of Jubilee

Posted on

They say the 7th year is the year of Jubilee.  A year where debts are cancelled and everyone knows and breathes freedom.  A season of celebration. It’s been 7 years since our son Noah passed away.  God has already shown Jason and me how this year is going to be profound and special, though we […]

It’s Important for you to Know

Posted on

It’s important for you to know I don’t always hate myself. It’s important because it is the truth. And “hate” is a big word, one which isn’t truly accurate for how I feel day in and day out.  But for those of you who struggle with the person in the mirror on occasion, you know […]

And 10 Things I Love About Me

Posted on

So, last fall I was really humbled to be part of an intimate retreat weekend in Austin, Texas.  I relished in hearing the stories of the women I had never met, as well as cherished the opportunity to reconnect with the girls I knew from various times in my life.  To be honest, just be […]

SAHM Ships Her Pants in the Big City

Yesterday I woke up sure I was dying of colon cancer. I actually had all the signs according to the NIH.   The last month has proved to be a loose operation around here…and by “around here” specifically I mean me, my toilet, and I.  Almost a month ago I decided to do a Daniel […]

This is a note to myself and to every. single. stay. at. home. mom. or. person. in. the. whole. entire. world. Side note:  If you’ve ever done, or are interested in doing a Beth Moore study, don’t follow the rules.  Rules and schedules are suggestions and when it comes to one of her studies, one […]

The Tortoise and the Hare

Posted on

When I think of turtles, images from Eric Carle’s books come to mind since I have a toddler and these are on my shelves and in my hands most afternoons before nap time. If I said the word “turtle” to my husband, I bet you a zillion dollars visions of pecans covered in caramel covered […]

Was it Venezuela?  Maybe Siberia?  It could have been St. Petersburg, Russia. I don’t remember now. All I know is a million years ago when I was in my young 20’s I met a teenager named Alece Ronzino…we met over a mutual love for the mission field.  I think she was a carnivalite because for […]

Loveolution

Posted on

We need to start a “Loveolution.”  Actually, we need to carry out what was already started years ago…like, thousands of years ago, where EL. OH. VEE.  EE. was the headline news, not the other crap on TV, but news worthy in that it was spoken and acted out, person to person, in real life, God […]

Where Lies Your Beauty?

Today, Em and Ry and I were walking through Walmart.  As we stopped to honk the bike horns on the aisle display, parked between youth men’s clothing and the craft aisles, my eyes locked on the new Sport Illustrated swimsuit calendar, displayed right next to the Justin Bieber and Harry Potter posters.  Thankfully, come December […]

Girlfriends are MANDATORY!

Posted on

I just got back from Austin, Texas, where I took part in a girls weekend.  Two friends from college, one from the East Coast, another from the West, dreamed it up and decided to invite their friends from around the country to meet in the middle.  Those friends invited friends, and so on, and so […]
