Let me start by saying that I don’t believe that homeschooling is for everyone. It’s a personal decision that every parent must make for themselves. The experiences and thoughts I’ll share are for the person who is considering homeschooling. Maybe you’re sitting there just as I was about 10 years ago, trying to weigh this HUGE […]
We all need God to save us from our sin — to stand in our place on the front line of a spiritual battle we can never win. You can read my testimony here. Some of us also need God to save us from someone else’s sin.
I have a love/hate relationship with traditional systems. As a somewhat OCD driven kinda person, I love organization and structure. How else would I get stuff done?! I make lists… long ones… for every-stinking-thing. I check stuff off and feel oh-so productive. Howeverrr, I hate the way formal systems encourage pretense and discourage real-life relationships.
Half of the people who know Dwight & I can’t imagine us partying, drunk or high. The other half can’t imagine us involved in church, reading the Bible or praying. There are lots of stories like ours — of lives and marriages transformed by God’s grace — and they should all be told. I’m not […]
I had a good fight with my feelings today. I’m happy to say they didn’t win, but I’d be lying if I made out like it was easy. It was a disappointing email that brought me down early this morning — it was a reply to my application to sell my artwork at an upcoming […]
I’ve dabbled in many forms of art throughout my life, but I got serious about it in 2014. The sure way to get serious about your passion is to make it your business. It’s no longer a hobby when you need it to help feed you and your family. It takes a lot of effort to push […]
Friends, are you discouraged by the state of our nation? You’re like, uh yeea-uhh. Well, maybe not like that, but something in the affirmative. Yep, me too. Things aren’t likely going to get better for America, no matter who becomes President because our government is a reflection of the people. Unless the hearts of the people […]
I hope summer is going great for you. It’s been busy around here, but all is good. We’ve got 20-ish chicks running around… so cute! This late sleeper cracks me up, all like — “Where’d everybody go?” lol! They’re getting your worms, dude. = ) We made a fun pair of wooden flip-flips for some summer decor. […]
When summer rolls around I always feel overwhelmed with thoughts of how quickly I know it’ll pass. I’m anxious to squeeze every drop of goodness from these long, sunshiny days. Just as my excitement for some R & R rises, the events and activities of others begin to swarm all over my calendar. You […]
Soul-sharing… it’s what I do. But why? And more importantly, what’s in it for you? I value your time, so I’ll be brief with some backstory and then I’ll get on with the take-aways for you, because the truth is, there’s no point investing your time and attention in anything that is not going to better your life […]
