Toxic Humanity

Look out, here comes my soap box. Apparently masculinity is toxic. I know, baby H... I'm confused/ surprised too... I learned this from a razor company. So, I guess beards are right out too? Who knew? I thought they made and sold shaving implements that assist me with my morning ablutions (yes, I used to … Continue reading Toxic Humanity

Christianity in the Public Sphere

There has been a wave of controversy (ugh, I can't stand that word, and I know I'm the last to the party on this one) over Lauren Daigle's response in her Ellen interview regarding homosexuality as a sin. Now before I go further, this post is not about Lauren, it's about the Church as the … Continue reading Christianity in the Public Sphere

Female by Design

There is so much going on in our culture regarding sex and gender and identity and any combination of those subjects, that I can't speak to them all here. My primary goal in this post is to speak to the majority of women who are struggling with the typical daily struggles of life as a … Continue reading Female by Design

What Girls Need to Know: Part One

I foresee this turning into the blog series I never wanted to write. Lessons learned the hard way are never easily shared, and often times painfully remembered. But in resisting the call to teach out of my own mistakes, I have grown dim in my zeal for the Lord. And that is wholly unacceptable. If … Continue reading What Girls Need to Know: Part One

To My Children

I'm writing this in anticipation of the birth of my third child, a son. I have so many thoughts and feelings encircling my mind I was finding it truly difficult to sit and read my Bible this evening, so I decided to get them out. Most of my thoughts are centered on time. There is … Continue reading To My Children

My Top 5 Reasons for Choosing Home Education

It's my experience that many homeschooling families spend a lot of time defending (some well, some not-so well) their decision to home educate their children. I was having dinner with some truly admirable women from church and they shared the amount of guilt they experienced because they're unable to be at home with their children. … Continue reading My Top 5 Reasons for Choosing Home Education

Spiritual Lessons From my Children

My son is so much more in tune with the spiritual realm and the things of God. He better understands the roles of my husband and I than we do ourselves. I was having a hard time getting the little man to go to sleep. It coincided with a late work night for my husband. … Continue reading Spiritual Lessons From my Children

Update on My Boy

Little man has seemed better today; more agreeable and pleasant all around. He even managed to go potty on his own all day, and several of them were without my prompting him! Hooray for progress!! We're still waiting on results from some labs sent off Monday, and depending on whether or not they rule out … Continue reading Update on My Boy

Christmas on the Homestead

Yes, I'm aware it's still November. Thanksgiving has come and gone, and overall, it was pretty good. Pros: Family, friends, safe travel, great food with no food allergic reactions, 4 of 4 chickens present and accounted for (and living) when we returned. Cons: LONG trip, little sleep, fussy kiddos, a day of mucous induced vomiting … Continue reading Christmas on the Homestead

Why I Stand By TBC

Here in East Tennessee, there's been a bit of a controversy in the news lately over a local Baptist Church who was voted out of the Tennessee Baptist Convention (TBC). The issue stemmed from the church hiring a female pastor, a role which according to Baptist polity only a man is elligible to fill. In … Continue reading Why I Stand By TBC
