Lessons from Houdini

Posted by on Jul 3, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Parenting Perspectives | 0 comments

“Houdini’s out again!” Addi pointed out the window. All the other children ran to see. “Yep,” said Jeff. “There she is!” Houdini is our escape-artist, our chicken escape artist. She flies to the top of the small coop, jumps over to the fence rail, then flies to the ground. She never ventures far and the odd thing is that she never seems to mind going back into the chicken yard. Houdini loves Bud, however, and the minute he comes...

Summertime Prayer

Posted by on Jul 2, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, A Mother's Prayers, Blog | 0 comments

So I commended enjoyment because there is nothing better for man under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy himself, for this will accompany him in his labor during the days of his life that God gives him under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:15 (HCSB) The weather tells me that summer is in full swing. As I spend time outdoors, I can’t help but remember my own childhood. It felt like I burst out of school and ran full-blast, downhill...

There is More Than Just Food at a Family Dinner

Posted by on Jun 28, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Dad Voice | 0 comments

“Growing up, I learned life’s important lessons at the dinner table.”—Chef John Besh Since I live in a university town and students sometimes miss the homecooked meals they left behind, our faculty members often invite students to join our family meals. A colleague of mine invited a student to join him and his wife for dinner one Thursday night. The prayer was said, the meatloaf was served, and ten minutes had elapsed into their meal. And the young college...

Knock, Knock

Posted by on Jun 27, 2018 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, From the Heart | 1 comment

Knock, knock, knock. Inwardly I cringed just a little. Outside that door, my husband was caring for our kids so I could spend some much-needed time with Jesus before starting the day. I relished the stillness as I quietly sipped my coffee. But my preschooler knew I was awake and she missed me. I answered her knock. “Come in.” All smiles, she opened the door and climbed up on the bed beside me. After a good morning hug and...

Fire Building and Children

Posted by on Jun 26, 2018 in A LASTING FAITH, Blog, Parenting Perspectives | 0 comments

Recently my husband and I went on a mini vacation. Being a good Trail Life leader, he was spending his time learning new fire-building techniques from an online video. Being a good wife, I sat down on the couch beside him and watched. As I watched, I realized just how much fire building is like raising children. First we have to get the spot ready. Hopefully, before we ever have children we have prepared our home with a foundation...

How Many Steps?

Posted by on Jun 21, 2018 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Giggles and Grace | 0 comments

Parents, have you ever noticed there is no hurrying kids. No matter how much you try to make their legs move faster, if they don’t feel like being in a rush, they are on cruise control. One day we were trying to get out the door for an appointment at the orthodontist for my older daughter Faith. But Grace, who was five at the time, could not be rushed. I tried to simplify things and give Grace specific instructions...

Sprinkling Sunshine this Summer

Posted by on Jun 19, 2018 in Blog, Bonus Days | 1 comment

It is hard to believe that summer is right around the corner. School is finished for the year, and here we are with a gaggle of children to occupy. I love summer because it usually consists of lazy days playing outside, extra snuggle time in the mornings, and an overall more relaxed scheduled. However, by about week three I’m beginning to feel the pressure of finding new and exciting activities to keep the chaos at bay. This year, I’ve...
