The Ministry of Tucking Them In

Posted by on Oct 29, 2020 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, From the Heart | 0 comments

Bedtime. The word both excites and exhausts me. It excites me because I savor the quiet downtime between tucking in the kids and going to bed myself. It exhausts me because of the amount of work I must do between dinner and lights out – mealtime chores, showers, pajamas, last-minute homework… Sometimes—lots of times—I rush through our bedtime routine because I’m more tired than the kids. I forget how much those moments matter to my children. My always-busy son...

Painting the Lines

Posted by on Oct 26, 2020 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Dad Voice | 0 comments

Did you know that parenting sometimes resembles road work? Our town recently went to the expense of widening one of our primary roads. Previously it had been a frustrating and unsafe road. The shoulders were a thin ribbon that fell off into a ditch. The lanes were narrow and hard to maneuver due to large vehicles using the route. The new paving project converted two lanes into three. The wide road was nice, but the designers made a major...

I’m Proud of You Son

Posted by on Oct 22, 2020 in A CHERISHED FAMILY, Blog, Inspiration for the Journey | 0 comments

“You’re never too old to want your dad to be proud of you,” my husband stated the other night as we both collapsed into bed, tired from a day of hard work. Those poignant words took me immediately to the memory of my dad. His praise had such a huge impact on me then that to this day I think of my actions and how he would respond. What he accepted then still matters to me now. His affirmation...

Pink and blue frosting atop a lovely cupcake with heart sprinkles or other decorations reflect joy and party time. Alas, many babies never have a single birthday. Some pass on to heaven before birth in a miscarriage while others die in an abortion. Watch this prolife cupcake day video about the day and importance of life. For every three children who have a first birthday, one child did not. It’s a big number. Fifty million babies who never came...

Yes, the Lord will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. Psalm 85:12 ESV. God is good, all the time, but the crispness in the air that signifies autumn brings to mind a season of gratefulness. Fresh-turned farmers’ fields and orange pumpkins and bright red, ripened apples tickle the senses and remind us to be thankful for the yield God provides. Help your family get in a pumpkin patch perspective kind of mood by celebrating...

Sensing God

Posted by on Aug 28, 2020 in Blog, Bonus Days | 5 comments

Well, friends, the COVID days are dragging on. Our prayer is that the spread will cease, we can wave good-bye to fear and once again gather freely with family, friends, and in our churches. While we wait, let’s continue to seek the Lord and intentionally dwell in His presence…and encourage our children to do the same. One of the blessings in the midst of this pandemic has been the numbers of families outdoors spending quality time together, exercising—running, walking,...

When the Plan Changes

Posted by on Aug 26, 2020 in A HAPPY HOME, Blog, From the Heart | 1 comment

Lean in close, I have a secret to tell. “I am a recovering control freak.” Seriously. Life is good when things go according to plan, when nothing too crazy happens, and when people behave themselves. But if things start to veer too far off course, I get anxious. God has grown me a lot in this area over the last few years, though. I’m learning to raise the white flag, to trust Him and listen to His voice when...
