Mission Statement for Wives and Moms

May 29, 2012

There is something in me that wants organization.  Yet, there is something in me that resists the restriction that rules or a schedule could bring as a stay at home mom.  When I first heard of writing out a personal mission statement it seemed over the top to me.  It seemed rigid and formal. Then […]

The Creator ~ His Game, His Rules

May 27, 2012

The conversation went something like this: Ella:  …”why do I have to be on a team?” Cade:  “Because, that’s the game.” Ella:  “But, I don’t want to!  Why can’t I just be by myself?” Me:  “Um, Ella, Cade made the game.  You have to go by the rules he made.” I would love to say […]

I don’t know where I first read about the “prayer jar” idea, but it is something that we used to do when the kids were quite a bit younger. We want a way for our family to pray specifically for people in our lives, but sometimes it feels overwhelming as there are so many people.  […]

What Are You Doing With Jesus??

February 3, 2012

We met a new couple at church.  We have enjoyed getting to know them and recently invited them to our home for supper.  They asked for directions, and I looked at them, smiled and said, “Just take whatever road feels right.  It will work out.  After all, you want to have supper with us, and […]

January 28, 2012

This takes under 5 minutes to watch, and it is such a good reminder to keep our focus on what is important. If you like Francis Chan, I would highly recommend his book Forgotten God.
