DIY Semi-Circle Skirt

What happens when you're 10 weeks pregnant, all your regular bottoms are too tight, and your maternity clothes are all wintery? Well, first you cry a little. Then, you go out to the garage, dig out fabric you've had for 6 years, and you make yourself a skirt with a forgiving waist line, that's what! … Continue reading DIY Semi-Circle Skirt

Baby #4 update

Well I finally got a look at the little booger this morning. Waiting for the ultrasound was a fate worse than death- urine sample needed but I don't have to go, and pap smear, while listening to modern country music... just shoot me. But, it was encouraging to be surrounded by reminders of Who ultimately … Continue reading Baby #4 update

And one of the beaters just … Continue reading Oh, the Brokenness

The Awkward Side of Vocational Ministry

I am brand new to this whole "pastor's wife" role. Frankly, it's incredibly awkward. Mostly because my husband is not yet a pastor. He's still in the process of finding work as a vocational minister, either in chaplaincy, youth ministry, or worship ministry. It is his calling- undoubtedly. Every time I hear him speak, I … Continue reading The Awkward Side of Vocational Ministry
