Of Immeasurable Worth

Posted by on Nov 9, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

I’ll never forget the moment I became invisible. I collected my daughter from school where her team had returned from an out-of-town ballgame. On the drive home, my young athlete announced she was starving and could we please get some food. Weary beyond measure, I agreed to a super-quick stop so my teen wouldn’t starve to death. As the golden arches came into view, I glanced at my attire. Because of the late hour, I had thrown on sweats...

Praying for Those My Child is With

Posted by on Nov 8, 2017 in A LASTING FAITH, A Mother's Prayers, Blog | 1 comment

I love being a mom. To me, that came as a welcome surprise because I am not a person who’s comfortable with children. During my first pregnancy I worried that I wouldn’t like my child. Of course the exact opposite was true. My greatest joy was—and still is—getting to hang out with my kids. But, I’m ashamed to say that this enjoyment turned to jealousy when they began school and started choosing to spend their time elsewhere. Even though...

A Mother’s Legacy

Posted by on Nov 3, 2017 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, From the Heart | 2 comments

Ding! A new text message lit up the screen of my iPhone. I opened it to find a long note from my mom containing a list she’s compiled of over 350 names and attributes of God. The day before she and I had chatted about my fascination with learning God’s names as a means to knowing Him better. She mentioned that she thinks through the alphabet and corresponding names of God as she falls asleep at night. I had...

Risk Taker

Posted by on Nov 2, 2017 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Giggles and Grace | 0 comments

Today’s Giggle and Grace story comes from a sweet lady at my church named Ann. Ann is a grandmother. Before coming to church one Wednesday night, Ann took her two grandsons, Tyler and Andrew, to eat at McDonald’s. Ann and the boys got their food and sat down to eat, when Andrew noticed a little girl standing with her family waiting to get their order. Andrew grinned at her from ear to ear, and she returned the smile. When...

A Spectacle in Rome

Posted by on Nov 1, 2017 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, History by the Slice | 0 comments

Most people have heard about what happened in the Roman Colosseum, where Christians, criminals, slaves, and other “undesirables” were hauled into an arena and executed. Some say that most Christian martyrs were slaughtered in the Circus Maximus, not the Colosseum, but wherever it took place, this was entertainment to the bloodthirsty Roman crowd. People love a spectacle. Always have. Always will. But did you know that the Romans also held full-scale naval battles as entertainment? In 46 B.C., to...

Mommy Needs Jesus Too

Posted by on Oct 31, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 2 comments

In the months that led up to my first child’s delivery, I sat for hours thinking about what I would and would not do as a mother. I read every book on parenting I could get my hands on. In theory, it all sounded so simple. My plan was solid, secure, and I felt like I had this motherhood thing whipped before I’d even started (pausing for all parents to laugh hysterically and give me a monster eye roll)....

Surviving a Sensory Loaded Event

Posted by on Oct 30, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

Costumes, flickering lights, spooky sounds and so much more! Halloween is a holiday for the senses and although it is exciting and fun for some, it can be panic-inducing for a child with anxiety or sensory sensitivities. When my son was an infant, I loved dressing him up and pushing him down the street in his stroller while people adored his costume and chubby cheeks. Through the years, this became a far more daunting task as we began a...
