May I recommend…

Did you know I write many posts in my head every single week? Of course not, because they rarely make it here where you could see them. Obviously, you don’t live in my head, which is probably a good thing. In my head I write about supporting families who are raising kids with invisible disabilities, […]

I Am Not That Girl…I’m This One

I am a vase, fashioned by the creator. I am covered in blue, green and yellow swirls. I exist to hold life giving water and to display beauty. For the glory of His splendour. – my journal, spring, 1999 My last week was filled with wonderful women. I went to volunteer at an emerging organization, […]

Loving My Actual Life {a review}

Life moves at such a pace doesn’t it? Sometimes my husband and I will crash on the couch at the end of a crazy day and joke about “livin’ the dream!” And we are! This was/is our dream! Lots of kids, full on living with ministry, farm, family and all the things that go with […]

Where have ten years gone?

Ten years. Ten years between these two photos. We are now living in the same house we lived in ten years ago with a huge move to the farm and back again. We are back in our home church after ministering in another church between these ten year book ends. So much of life has […]

When the words are washed away…

This morning I come with my head hanging low. I am disappointed. Discouraged. My hope and desire was that this series would be a light in the darkness for everyone who reads it. I was so inspired. I have outlines. I have notes for every post. I have pictures. And the words WILL. NOT. COME. […]

You’re Loved No Matter What {a review plus}

Sometimes you can’t read a book quickly. When I get review copies I try and get through them as soon as possible in order to get the review up in the time frame that the publisher wants it. I couldn’t do that with this book. I needed to absorb it. Slowly. Perfectionism is something that […]

catching up

I have been wanting to post so many things over the last week: – why we’re addicted to drama – reclaiming kids (we added one in last week) – talk a little about beauty and why it’s so hard to wrap our head around our own – carbon monoxide poisoning – adrenal fatigue and the […]

Reclaiming FMF : {Welcome}

I let FMF (five minute friday) go for awhile. When I started the October 31 day challenge it just didn’t fit in with what I was writing at the time and I didn’t want to interupt the flow of the book I was posting (click on the Alphabet Soup tab if you’re wondering what I’m […]

We really don’t need to be perfect…

I am a knot at the moment. I have this thing I want to say and it was so clear lying in my bed and now, sitting here at this keyboard…I’ve gone blank. I know what it’s about, but how to say the words, to craft them into something that will, perhaps, free you, and […]
