“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20 Yesterday, Resurrection Sunday, I drove… Continue reading Women & Ministry

Childlike Faith

Last year I took a Bible study called “Entrusted with a Child’s Heart.” I think it was one of the best studies on parenting from a biblical perspective, that is out on the market today. I don’t say that lightly, as there are few books I would recommend women study outside of the Bible. But… Continue reading Childlike Faith

Friday Free for All #2

We were traveling during the first part of this week (it was SO warm and beautiful in Alabama and Tennessee, and SO…not so much back home in Indiana). I haven’t had much time to write, but I did have time in the car to read. Here are some great things I’ve read this week: First,… Continue reading Friday Free for All #2

Friday Free for All #1

I would say TGIF, but we have a super busy weekend. Being a SAHM, I try with all my might to protect our weekends so that we have uninterrupted family time as much as possible. This weekend…not so much. It will make for a somewhat stressful weekend, if I don’t watch my heart and my… Continue reading Friday Free for All #1

Time Flies

I wanted to write a long, thought out post this evening, but here I sit, eyes heavy from yet another night of little sleep. I spend the evening looking through old computer files trying to find something for someone, and got seriously distracted by videos. Videos of our child, who will be six in one,… Continue reading Time Flies

Welcome, 2016

We tried to sleep on our fold-out couch last night, the three of us. Little Man had coordinated a “party” for the us (board games, Wii games, root beer floats), and we crashed together in a “slumber party” to end the year. I made it until 4:27 am, when repeated kicks in the back and… Continue reading Welcome, 2016

Facebook, Narcissism, & Philippians 2

  I have never been “popular.” Throughout school, I had friends, sure, but I certainly was never high up in the ranks with the rich kids, the cheerleaders, or the prom queen types. I had a core group with whom I ran around, and I even eventually married one of them 🙂   In college… Continue reading Facebook, Narcissism, & Philippians 2

I Will Follow

I should probably preface this with two statements: 1) I will be forty in, now, less than one month. 2) That doesn’t really bother me, except…infertility is banging on my heart again like it has nothing better to do every.single.moment of So. This morning at church we sang a new song. I mean, I… Continue reading I Will Follow

I Just… (sorta Theology Thursday)

Okay. I just don’t get this whole “women should always support other women” nonsense. I mean, if you’re making really stupid decisions, or sinning grievously, or being an a#* in general, why should I support you simply because we share a similar set of sexual organs? I am so tired of being told I should… Continue reading I Just… (sorta Theology Thursday)
