In Pursuit of Character

In Pursuit of Character

Because my kids are quite young, I don’t spend too much time explaining why I want them to obey when their dad or I ask them to do something. Right now, we parent more in the vein of requiring obedience simply because God wants them to obey us immediately, so that as they get older we have built a good foundation for freedom and discussion. But...

Love…..all we need?

Love…..all we need?

I love love.  Who doesn’t?  There is something unmistakably wonderful about being in love.  The feeling of butterflies in your stomach, your heart beating in anticipation of seeing that person again, your best manners, personality, and attitudes are up front and center, and there seems to be just be an overall glow to our physical appearance....

Returning Home…to a Mess…

Saturday, January 26, 2013 I thought it was bad returning from a long trip to a messy house. It’s much worse returning to a marital mess. I was waiting in Las Vegas for our last flight home, when my husband confessed over the phone that he had visited some questionable websites again while I was gone. My heart sank. I pushed the stroller to a...

Nesting = Love

We haven’t even met the middle of January yet, and I’m full-swing into deep cleaning. This urge hits me every single January as I take down the holiday décor and stare at all the “blank canvas” spots in my home. First, I see all the dust and clutter. So I’ve been cleaning like a crazy woman, attacking random things like the pantry, the...

Fear….or Peace for the New Year?

I am a list-maker. I am also an optimist. Therefore…..I love making New Year’s Resolutions. My resolutions over the years have ranged from big and crazy (I haven’t become a yoga master yet but I did run five 5K races in 2010), to academic and artsy (I didn’t learn how to make pottery but I did check 20 books off my reading list in...

Mary, did you know? {A Christmas Reflection}

It’s safe to say that we are nearing the end of the official Christmas season.  But the idea of Christmas and what it means all year long should not be forgotten for us moms……for anyone.  Our contributor Megan sat down on Christmas Eve night and wrote out her thoughts about the eternal connection that all of of us mamas have with...

Why We Rejoice

Sunday, December 23, 2012 One of my favorite memories about this Christmas will be remembering my little 22-month old daughter pick out and sing along with specific words in familiar carols, her latest being “Rejoice! Rejoice!” from “O Come O Come Emmanuel.” So what makes you rejoice at Christmas? Is it the presents you’re giving (or...

Lights twinkling while hearts are breaking?

Lights twinkling while hearts are breaking?

It seemed so strange last Friday, hearing the horrifying news from Newton, Connecticut, and then spending the evening on a Christmas lights drive out for dessert. Lights twinkling while hearts are breaking? Hearing “Jingle Bells” after seeing news clips of beautiful young children killed mercilessly? It’s such a mix of emotions, feeling...

Look for the gift. {Our Blessings Count!}

Look for the gift. {Our Blessings Count!}

Look for the gift. Sometimes gifts come in the guise of brightly wrapped packages, rattling with the trinkets that we put on our Christmas list. A new pair of gloves, the latest Food Network cookbook, or a gift certificate to a spa. Look for the gift. Sometimes gifts come in the form of blessings, the good that lies in our path like sparkling...

Celebrating Advent with a {makeshift} Advent Wreath

We didn’t make it to church this morning. We did try…..but after a few toddler tantrums, a baby that decided to nap at the wrong time, a husband finishing up a big work project that’s due tomorrow and a mommy that got into the shower a little too late….it just didn’t happen. Sadly, today is December 2nd and also the...
