Day 15: Finished a book!

Something about only having two books with you and basically nothing else to occupy your down time gets books read. I'm very good at starting books...but finishing them generally takes longer than five days...for non-fiction at least. Yesterday I finished "Half the Church" by Carolyn Curtis James. I pulled some other quotes as I read … Continue reading Day 15: Finished a book!

Five Minute Friday – Change

; My everyday is one of staying home. I rock the baby. Feed the baby. And roll around in neverending piles of laundry and dishes. I wonder what to make for dinner. It is an age-old battle fought by many a housewife, but nontheless a mini-battle of everyday. Epics could be written on the intricacies … Continue reading Five Minute Friday – Change

Reading my way through my life

It's interesting how for some people the silent activity of reading can be so revitalizing. I am one of those people. I remember once when I was younger (somewhere between the ages of 8-11?

He will rejoice over you with singing!

Today I was watching the babe as he attempted to roll from his back to belly over his right side (a task he has yet to perform). As I watched him try, I was struck by the amount of love I have for this child. I am completely caught up in everything he does. I … Continue reading He will rejoice over you with singing!

around the edges past our sight..

Something I wrote last year... When I was little, walking in the dark at my church's family camp was scary. It was about the scariest thing ever. All day I would be fine outside, playing anywhere and walking down the open paths by myself, but as soon as dark crept over those lovely cheerful paths … Continue reading around the edges past our sight..


Lately, I feel like I've been hungry all the time. But it's not a normal hunger. My stomach is full. But I still long. Sometimes I try to fill it with food. Sometimes I give in and watch a chick flick or read a deceptively innocent romance novel or try to fill the space with exercise and … Continue reading Hungry

Sackcloth not required!

speaking to women: "Do not let your adornment be merely outward - arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel - rather let it be the hidden person of the heart with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." 1 Peter 3:3 I … Continue reading Sackcloth not required!
