(This is a rerun from 2012 when I was writing The Poorganic Life about eating real food on a budget.) I’ve been thinking about whether or not to write this post, as I’ve found myself facing a bit of writer’s block over the last few weeks. See, here’s the thing. This is the time of […]
For the past several years, during autumn, I’ve worked at a corn maze. If you’ve never been to a corn maze, the way it works is that after the corn (or in our case sorghum) is planted, paths are cut through the acreage, typically in some shape or formation. Maze-goers enter the maze […]
I’ve been pretty absent from writing here lately due to a number of factors, but primarily because I GOT A JOB! Actually, right now I am actually juggling THREE jobs: my new job, cashiering at the pumpkin farm, and tutoring a teenager. And, oh yes, there is that bit about being a housewife and mother […]
This post might also be called: How to Keep Your Kid from Becoming an Entitled Punk Lately I’ve been thinking about a lot of unconventional and counter-cultural things my parents did in raising my siblings and me. I like to think their methods helped us NOT to become total schmucks. Even though I despised many […]
Hi Friends, sorry for being absent so long and HUGE apologies to my dad for flaking out on promoting his book. In a subsequent post, I am going to explain where I’ve been (NEW JOB!), but without further ado, I want to share with you the 5th installment in the series from my dad’s book Raising […]
It’s WEEK 4 of my dad’s awesome series on parenting, featuring excerpts from his book Raising Homemade Disciples, which IS ON SALE FOR ONLY .99 cents this week on KINDLE. If you’ve been waiting for a deal, THIS IS IT! Carpe Diem! Last week we learned about the 4 main purposes for families, the first of which is […]
My dad, Brian Tenny, is back! This week, he is going to share 4 of the purposes for the family as he does in his book Raising Homemade Disciples. This is my absolute favorite part of his book–seeing him breakdown some of the parenting essentials in a holistic way. I’m not much for behavior modification parenting books, […]
I’m VERY excited to share another of my dad’s stories from Raising Homemade Disciples. In his first post, I let my dad tell a glowing story about me and NOW, because I’m nothing if not fair, I’m going to let him share a truly horrifying epoch of bad behavior about MY BROTHER, Shane. HA! (What can […]
Don’t get me wrong. I love my kids. I’d take a bullet for them, or donate a kidney, or trash my waistline, sagify my bustline, ruin my sleep schedule, and jeopardize my sanity for them–oh wait, I did most of those things already. But if I’m being totally honest, I didn’t really ENJOY them all […]
Over the weeks between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day I’m pretty busy working my job as a cashier at a strawberry farm; however, my amazing dad is allowing me to feature some of his writing here on my blog. Since he and my mom are wise, witty, and wonderful parents, I was eager to have […]
Hi! I'm Katrina. I'm married to an elementary school music teacher and am mom to three crazy kids. Formerly a high school teacher and missionary, I now stay home and give myself pedicures and eat bon-bons, while never avoiding sarcasm. I blog about faith, finances, food, and family. I founded You Go Girl! groups to encourage, equip, and empower women want to support or participate in missions. I love Jesus, missions, hip-hop dance, gardening, country music, Henry James novels, talking too much, wearing makeup, and eating crusty bread. I am available for freelance editing and speaking engagements.
