Teaching Kindness in an Unkind World

Posted by on Sep 11, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

I was recently in a waiting room with three of my four children and after requesting a “yes ma’am” from them, another parent in the room thanked me. He thanked me for requesting respect and kindness from my children. I was taken aback as it was a blatant reminder that these things are no longer commonplace and as parents we are tasked with the daily struggle of teaching kindness in an unkind world. This realization hit me full force...

Praying for Failure

Posted by on Sep 8, 2017 in A LASTING FAITH, A Mother's Prayers, Blog | 0 comments

I don’t know about you, but for me, some of the best lessons I’ve ever learned came from trying something and failing. No, failure isn’t pleasant. But the skills I’ve acquired because of failing have made me who I am today. I’ve learned to be more patient, less fearful, and to approach a problem without preconceived ideas. Failure is a completely different issue though, when it comes to my kids. I want them to find success, be happy, and...

How Do I Go On?

Posted by on Sep 7, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

Her cute pixie haircut and shining dark eyes hid the pain well, so her question surprised me. “How do I grieve with my child? I don’t know if I should share what I feel or if I should protect her from it.” An unwanted divorce had changed the landscape of her life, requiring a new state, home, and job. However, due to their lengthy trial separation, the upheaval was almost routine for the three-year-old involved. But not to the...

How Does She Do It?

Posted by on Sep 6, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

The other evening, I had to run to the store. Had to. As creative as I can be, I was not going to subject my family to a meal somehow made from a can of tuna, ketchup, ranch dressing, and a can of black beans. But I was feeling pretty good. I looked pretty good, my son and daughter were all cute and clean, and I had remembered to pack all the things necessary for a grocery trip and...

What’s Hiding?

Posted by on Sep 5, 2017 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Inspiration for the Journey | 0 comments

I walked around the room with a rubber duck in my hand. I laid it in plain sight on a shelf of the book case. It’s classic yellow face and orange bill pointed to the door where my daughter would skip through in a few seconds. I smiled in anticipation. “Heidi,” I called, “Come find the ducky.” Her eyes sparkled when she came into the room. They went straight to the bookcase where she had last placed the duck....

Bringing Hygge Home!

Posted by on Sep 1, 2017 in Blog, Bonus Days | 0 comments

The concept of Hygge is on the forefront of the latest trends in Home Furnishings. The problem is that it’s incredibly hard to explain! The Danish word pronounced “hue-guh” references a feeling or moment of feeling cozy and special. There’s not a direct translation of the word into English, but the closest word to convey its meaning is cozy. Bringing the feeling of happiness to our homes and living comfortably is the idea of Hygge. As fall approaches, hygge...

Don’t Be Afraid of the Bears

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Parenting Perspectives | 0 comments

“Sh!” Baylor turned to me as we went up the steps. “Be quiet so the bears won’t hear us.” The bears? Baylor and I had just left my office and were heading up toward the sanctuary. “Are there bears in the church?” I asked. “Sh! They might hear us. Walk softly.” Although I wasn’t convinced it was necessary for me to crouch behind this three-year-old and be on the lookout for bears, I complied. As we came to the...
