Happy Thanksgiving 2020

What a year, right? I'm not even talking about the covid stuff. I mean, just personally, for our family, it has been one ordeal after the next, and I know MANY families who've experienced the same thing, many of them to a higher degree than us.

Reverencing My Husband

The concept of reverencing my husband is relatively new to me. Relatively. And I mean not intellectually new, but practically new, as in I haven't actively and intentionally pursued it before. But in reading and studying scripture and walking through a book with my mentor, I've come to the point of implementing what I've been … Continue reading Reverencing My Husband

Family Worship

Today (Tuesday) was weird. I went full out housewife and cleaned the whole house. Okay, the kids helped me clean up all the clutter. ...alright! Fine! It was just the living room! We folded and put away laundry, vaccuumed, and unearthed the sofas. Maybe all the clutter isn't cleaned up, but it sure is good … Continue reading Family Worship

Goal Post 2020

Goals... I love 'em in hockey, football, and soccer, but... I'm terrible at setting and achieving them in my life. You wanna know the difference between a measurable goal and a lofty unattainable goal? Commitment and discipline. Unfortunately, I've accepted mediocrity in many of my life circumstances, lots of times to the detriment of my … Continue reading Goal Post 2020

Milestone!

Sunday was a special day in the life of our family. My husband was officially ordained to ministry. I can absolutely see how this is what God always had in mind for him; from his specific spiritual gifting to his ability to conmect with people in his curiously congenial yet direct demeanor, my husband is … Continue reading Milestone!
