About LaniWith six kids, a farm, a ministry and dreams poking out in every direction I need plenty of grace to keep all the balls in the air. The sweet thing is that when I drop them, that crazy grace of God is there telling me I'm still okay...and you are, too...welcome to this place of grace.

February wasn’t quite as impressive and I didn’t make nearly as much progress as I had hoped too. I blame it on the fact that February has fewer days than any other month…and maybe that the audio book I chose is 39 freaking hours long – what was I thinking!?? (still not finished that baby) […]
I’m not actually a huge make-up wearer. In fact my kids commented on that fact when I said I was giving up make-up for Lent. They noticed this particular feature of their mom, I was touched that they noticed. However, I know what’s in my heart. I know why I use make-up when I do. […]
There we were, sitting around the table at the farm eating lunch. My husband was away hanging out with the prayer community at Breakforth (it’s a huge equipping event in Canada). The kids and I had decided it would be fun to head to the farm for the weekend and chill. My son brought his […]

To calibrate something means that you adjust it to meet a standard. Therefore, recalibrate means to bring something back to the standard; to re-adjust. My daughter has to do this constantly with her violin. It isn’t a very good one so it goes out of tune easily. Went she’s all calibrated the music is sweet […]
It was a dark and stormy night up in the mountains. The new year was almost upon me and I still hadn’t found my ‘one word’ for the year. There had been a few auditions but nothing was really cutting it. The next day I decided I’d start working on my new planner while the […]
It was a three-puzzle Christmas. One didn’t get completed. We’ll have to break it out when we get home. Puzzles have been a theme in my world since the middle of November. It started at the Belong Summit. Puzzle pieces were the theme of the decorations, reminding the participants that we each have a part […]
The cat and the bag. The worms and the can. They aren’t supposed to get out but I seem to have a way of poking the cans and the bags and then there is stuff to deal with. These cats and worms actually need to get out!! Not so long ago I was talking to […]
