Friday Introductions: Case for Christ for Kids

It’s a cold, blustery, drizzly day here. We probably won’t spend much time outside. I really think the wind is strong enough to blow over my 65-pound 9-year-old. Speaking of that 9-year-old, she’s had a lot of questions lately. Questions about God, heaven and faith. She’s really struggling to understand who God is, whether He’s … Continue reading »

My older daughter is taking pre-algebra this year. Now, it’s been a really long time since I’ve worked an algebra program of any kind –like 25 years.

Friday Introduction: Sisters in Bloom

¬† I took my kids to the park yesterday on a beautiful, 70-degree day. As my¬†youngest daughter was playing, I noticed that her jeans were showing a lot of sock.

Friday Introduction: A New Everyday Truth

Next week, I go to my first middle school parent meeting. My 10-year-old will be a middle-schooler next year. How did that happen? The switch from elementary school to middle school is a big one — for both her and her parents. While I’m proud of the lovely young lady my daughter is becoming, I’m … Continue reading »

Friday Introduction: The Power of a Positive Mom

We’ve been struggling with negative attitudes around here this month. I don’t know if it’s the onset of winter, the long Christmas break or a lack of sleep, but the complaining and always finding the negative in things is getting on my nerves. The final straw was when the answer to the question “How was … Continue reading »

Friday Introduction: Motherhood on a Dime

Driving home from my parents’ house last night, my husband said something about us having been married almost 16 years. “Have you really been married that long?” came the question from the back seat. “Yes, we have,” we answered. “That’s a long time,” said my oldest. Sixteen years is a long time, but it seems … Continue reading »

Friday Introductions: Untangling Christmas

“I can hardly wait. It’s almost Christmas!” This is what my oldest daughter announced in the car one day this week. I had to take a minute to check the calendar to be sure I hadn’t missed a couple of months somewhere. To my great relief, I found it was still October. We hadn’t shot … Continue reading »
