Faith in the Valley: When Joy Comes Back

To start with, here’s the debrief e-mail that I sent out to those attending on Tuesdays because I think it had a couple good points for those of you following online. Thanks for another great discussion. Honestly, I felt a little discombobulated today and was having all my epiphanies DURING the discussion rather than before it, […]

Faith in the Valley: Naomi and Coming Home Empty

After our knock-down, drag-out with Hagar, Abram, and Sarai last week, I admit that I was eager for an “easy” match-making, love-story about Naomi, sweet Ruth, and honorable Boaz. Aren’t they precious? I’m gonna include the Scripture from the NIV in the text again. It will make for a long print, but you can cut […]

Faith in the Valley: Hagar and the Desert

Last week rocked. Jeremy and I had the chance to go to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat last weekend before our much delayed Faith in the Valley meeting on Tuesday, so let me tell you, I’m still all “Go, go, go Joseph!” (That’s one of the songs.) Sitting down talking through the Joseph story was […]

Mom Homework Fail and a Lent Lesson

Last week I found out that my middle child, my darling son, has been lying to me all year about his homework.  When he told me on a daily basis that he had finished his homework or had none, I believed him.  However, after a while, my tiny mind awoke from its slumber to ask […]

Being Careful & Being Friends

This morning I had to walk my kids into school because they were tardy.  This is because I made them do absurd and unusual tasks, such as brushing their teeth, clearing their cereal bowls, and putting on their shoes.  I truly am unreasonable .  After writing “Slowpokes” as “Reason for Tardy” in the log, I […]

Generational Good Girls & the Lifetime Math Problem

Warning. I’m going to write about my 9.5 year old daughter who could easily find out about this post, so  YOU MUST PROMISE NEVER TO SPEAK OF THIS TO HER. NEVER. NEVER. EVER. Don’t even read this post if you think you will squeal. Addie is a good girl. I would like to think her […]

Book Club and Q &A with Kay Bruner

I know that I promised to blog more after my last post a MONTH AGO, but it turns out that having three kids in school did not result in as much bon-bon eating and blogging as I’d hoped.   Alas.  I wrote a bunch of blog posts in my head, but they never made it […]
