Oh Happy DAY! Not only did I figure out how to log into my blog again, I have a fabulously terrific reason to be blogging again. One of the ways that I occupied bits of my creative energy during my unplanned blog sabbatical was by helping my friend Kay Bruner with editing her memoir, As Soon […]
Those reading in e-mail will need to click over to the site for today’s post. Here is the video of my talk at Flourish on Finding the Rest of My Faith, April 11, 2014. I apologize for the video/audio quality, but I was just recording on my iPad. Someday I will teach myself how to […]
In the beginning the parents created the children and the home. Now the house was formless and empty, cleanliness hovered over the surface of the counters, and the Father was hovering over the mother. And the parents said,“Let there be a baby,” and there was a baby. The mother saw that the baby was pooping […]
This past week I hid about a dozen people and stories from my Facebook newsfeed–and not for anything obscene or vulgar or scandalous. I have simply realized that my feed was displaying a litany of complaints and grievances from the minor to the severe–and all of it was from my Christian friends. One friend was […]
(This post is kind of in the Finding the Rest of My Faith series and kind of a blathering mission statement for You Go Girl!, but PLEASE read it. I’d love you to share it too. I’ve kind of determined that I’m better at writing one long post per week than three short. SO, if this is […]
A year and a half ago (during Summer of 7), we went tubing in the NC mountains with some friends. While the dads and older kids went up to the top with their tubes, the moms and younger kids started at the midway point of the river, just floating down through the calmest waters toward […]
Finding the Rest of My Faith didn’t actually meet last Thursday night due to Snowpocalypse, but three snowed- in days did give me some insights into rest. I found that, unlike other holidays and vacations, Snowpocalypse was quite restful for me because there was absolutely no expectations of doing anything or going anywhere. My house was […]
(I’ve selected a soundtrack for reading this post, so click over to the blog and then play the songs embedded at the end of the post. ) Thanks to Distant Shores Media and http://sweetpublishing.com/ for access to these open Bible resources. Week 3 of Finding the Rest of My Faith was a tricky one for […]
Last Thursday we met for the second time to discuss Finding the Rest of My Faith. There were just three of us again, which turned out to be a perfect group for digging into last week’s questions, which you can find at the bottom of the Week 1: Summary HERE. This week I want to focus on […]
Our first study group on Finding the Rest of My Faith began this past Thursday. If you want to follow along with what we’re discussing or weren’t able to be at the first meeting, these summary posts may help. At the end, I’ll include a few ideas for self study. There were just three of us. We […]
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'm a reluctant real foodie who blogs about faith, finances, food, and family. I love Jesus, missions, hip-hop dance, gardening, country music, Henry James novels, talking too much, wearing makeup, and eating crusty bread.
