On Friday, Racer and I had the opportunity to see the movie War Room. If you haven’t seen it, GO! It was amazing and I’ll admit, I was teary eyed at the end (ahem… and at several other points too). The movie helped spur me to thinking about a lot of things – being intentionalContinue reading “Sometimes You Need To Say It”
Ten years ago, I was up in the morning, getting ready for work. I turned on the Today Show as I normally did. I was 4 months pregnant with Professor. The I watched in disbelief and confusion. I went into work, into my safe little office in the midwest. I watched some more. A coupleContinue reading “Remembering 9/11”

I really was a great book – mystery, crime and a little budding romance too. It is Christian fiction – so no “kids don’t read this page” parts. No foul words.

My oldest daughter, Blue, has been sick. It’s not fun. Mommas don’t like it when their kidsContinue reading “Clean up in aisle 7”
As my little guy is struggling to gain weight and “thrive” I’ve been wondering if sometimes we have a similar “spiritual failure to thrive?” With my son, he has not been gaining weight as he should. He’s not been growing. Sometimes as Christians, I think we fail to grow too. We aren’t maturing in our faith and we stay right at the place we are.
I, along with a friend, have felt called to pray for Jon and Kate Gosselin. You may know them from the TLC reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8. There has been a firestorm surrounding them lately. Their marriage is in trouble. I have been there. I understand the feelings. I understand the hurt andContinue reading “My prayer for Jon and Kate”
