"The American Way"

By |July 24th, 2010|Blog, farm life, Living Green|

Tonight I was getting caught up with some friends blogs and ironically my friend, Brenda wrote this post, which totally fits in with what my last post was about... "Work Ethic!" I can't tell you how many times Isaac and I have had conversations with friends on this same issue Brenda. Your post was very tastefully written and sums up a HUGE issue today's parents need to recognize. You are totally fair and right to [...]

Raising Kids to Do Hard Things

By |March 23rd, 2010|Blog, Uncategorized|

This past weekend was the Raising Kids to do Hard Things Seminar in Portland, Or. We had a really great time enjoying worship, productive fellowship with friends from all over and learning from someone who has gone before us in the land of parenting. We took Kelsey, our nine year old with us the second day. She really loved being "big" enough to go. We enjoyed having the special "alone" time with her as well. [...]

Engaging but Not Encouraging Halloween

By |October 30th, 2009|Blog, Family Discipleship, Holidays, Parenting|

Beautiful fall with all its glory. Wonderful bounty, plentiful harvest, and Halloween. Do you ever feel like Halloween ruins it? When I was a young mom, I struggled so much with how to handle Halloween. We were teaching our daughter to love Jesus, to walk in purity, turn from sin, and to also be a LIGHT in the darkness. But where is the fine line for Christians on how to handle Halloween? I used to be [...]

He Will Do Great Things

By |October 28th, 2008|Blog, Reflections|

Ahhhhhh! Tears! Tantrum! Screams and Yells! He is out of control! He won't calm down!I Love, Love, Love my son, but so many times I feel like pulling the hair out of my head! It doesn't matter how many parenting books I have read or reread (even for the 8th time). I have prayed and prayed for this little man; yet he is still so intense all the time, about everything! The constant insanity had [...]

When You Walk By The Way Conference

By |June 22nd, 2008|Blog, Home School|

I can't believe it! Still no baby! I am so thankful to the Lord for His perfect timing though because I was hoping I would get to go to the annual OCEAN Network Conference. Isaac and I enjoyed all of the talks we went to as well as the time together and seeing friends we haven't seen in a while. Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr. was the keynote speaker. Of course he is "on fire" passionate [...]
