NOTE: I didn’t write this. It’s written by Kevin DeYoung at The Gospel Coalition. A friend linked to it, and then another friend blogged about how badly she was feeling about herself, and I thought to share it with you all. In light of some of the things I’ve been reading lately about how comfortable … Read More

But what for? Whose opinion matters most? Seriously, as I started writing this blog post, I thought, ‘Make it … Read More
Listen up … I’ve been blogging for FIVE years. (WOW!) In those five years I have never once told you to go out and buy something. I’ve given many book reviews, many plugs for fun things we like here in our home, and I’ve never told you “you MUST have this.” Until today. You MUST … Read More
Before we get to American Idol, I am doing my first giveaway on my blog tomorrow! 🙂 So please come back and see what the hype is about! Now, onto AI … I have FINALLY decided who I am rooting for: AND Who are you rooting for?
It’s Widsom Wednesday, and I spoke with Kim and Alicia Smalley, a godly, fun couple in our church with 4 adult children. I asked Kim, “What did you do, what advice do you have, what do you think you did right with your kids?” And I LOVED what he and Alicia shared. 1. Pray. We … Read More
