Some Wintery Crochet Projects

I get an itch to crochet as soon as the weather snaps cold. This year, I set out to make my family coordinating Christmas stockings, each with a different stripe pattern to designate each individual's stocking, and so far, I'm 85% done with one.

Homestead Updade

It's been nice to shift our focus the last few weeks. Call it my nesting instincts kicking in, but I've been really in to increased productivity and efficiency as of late.

When my Faith Feels Hypocritical

I'm hoping to eliminate the worst case scenarios from that list of possibilities, but as a mama, I'm naturally concerned for my little man. I … Continue reading Prayers for my Boy
