In my last blog post, I told you I don’t have goals; I have priorities. While some think this is just an issue of semantics, I differ. Goals are an end. Once met, it’s over. For me to have goals means I must complete it. A goal can become so Read More ….
The 2:1 Conference is an annual event for Christian homeschool bloggers. It’s unique because it’s small enough to create a community and large enough to expand our blogs. I was thrilled to be among the sponsors, along with Melinda Martin Publishing and Design Service, of the conference. It was so much fun Read More ….
You’re late getting to church — again. After service, a kind and wise elder lady gives you advice how to get your family in order, while your children run through the hallway. You hear, “Honey, it’s o.k. Some moms just fail.” Immediately the afterglow is gone. Even when you stay Read More ….
I hate using images in social media and my blog posts. Well, maybe “hate” is a little strong. “Experts” tell me I need an image with every blog post, every social media post, every e-mail I write. O.K. Maybe I’m going overboard. I’m not against pretty pictures, or even witty Read More ….

Really, though, what’s going on here is “Re-direction.” Due circumstances that I saw coming, but hope wouldn’t, I making changes. God is redirecting my focus. Read More ….
Pete sure had a lot to say this morning. As I said my good mornings to Shana, Georgia, Hope, and Mabel, Pete hollered repeatedly letting me that he was there also — “Please, please. I’m over here. Pay attention to me.” During all the ruckus, Maggie, Daisy, and Molly just Read More ….
Change is not around the corner. It’s here. For me, at least. 2014 has been a year of trying on the new, rejecting what didn’t fit, and moving on. It has also been a year of finally saying some things just don’t fit any more. I think I’ve found the Read More ….
