Thanksgiving Recipe

Posted on

Today I thought I’d share a yummy and healthy Thanksgiving recipe, full of antioxidants, but mostly full of incredible flavor and it’s SUPER EASY to do!  A friend introduced me to the recipe probably 15 years ago and every time I make it, it’s a hit.  Over the years I’ve tweaked the recipe (it had […]

Guest Post: Thankfulness

Posted on

Thankfulness entails honesty.  Why pretend when God knows the deepest parts of our hearts?  The moment I realized there was no such thing as a secret between me and God, my awe of Him increased, along with my love for Him.  I breathed in at that moment the truth that God loves me, as is, […]

Friendship: Close Up

Posted on

I’m thankful to be married to my best friend in the whole wide world. At the same time, Jason doesn’t fill the girlfriend spot in my heart that some pretty amazing women do, and this post is about them. When we arrived in Denver almost 12 years ago, sure I was excited to live in […]

Top Ten Thanks

Posted on

Every night, unless he is out of town, Jason and I are a tight team in the bedtime, tucking in the kids, routine.  At this stage, Ryan wants me most times and I won’t lie when I say, I’m eating up every single, “I want Mommy!” moment I can get because I know at some […]

This past weekend I went to a women’s retreat where I knew a handful of people and only a handful of people knew me.  I enjoyed the time with these women, met a few new ones, but did not feel responsible or guilty for not finding out the stories of the other 100 women in […]

Why I Hate "CARS"

Posted on

I don’t really.  If I did, I don’t think anything I ever said again from this point on would be credible, so I jest.  But, it’s okay for me, as a mom, to be mad at Lightning McQueen, Guido, Luigi, and all the Ferrari’s in the whole world. Do NOT let his looks deceive you…this […]

Since the beginning of June, I’ve been “Reading the Bible in 90 Days.”  I’m currently in the book of Ezekiel, so, clearly I’ve missed the 90 day mark, ahem. This is supposed to be a post about thankfulness, a practice we do in our home on a regular basis, like “Top 10 of the Day” or […]

Thanks

One of the perspective changes I had while Noah was in the hospital, and then since he passed away, is one of thankfulness. Growing up as a Catholic kid, it was regular practice to give thanks to God for each meal, pray every night for family, friends, neighbors and strangers, and say the words of […]

History in Pictures

Posted on

Happy 20th Anniversary, Sweetheart!  20 years.  I wrote a “Husband List” before we even met and started dating.  It was 6 pages long.  No pressure, right?!  I think it was the “thing” to do in Christendom way back when, now hidden in a journal somewhere in the basement.   On it were things about integrity, […]

#Hashtag Series, Part 1

#FirstWorldProblems This series isn’t going to be pretty. I’m not writing it for you. I’m writing it for me, as I stand in front of the mirror, a slap in my own face.  I need a renewed reality check.  I need a swift kick in the pants… If your face stings, turn the other cheek. […]
