Four Question Friday

Good morning! Christmastime is such a wonderful time of year. In addition to Doing Good is Simple, I’ve started the service advent called #lighttheworld. It started yesterday and I feel like the book prepped my heart for this activity throughout December. Our family has always used a traditional large advent calendar with boxes to put…

No Lie

Blogging during the holidays seems to be a tough gig. I’m not sure how this is all going to work, but I’ll find a way. There was so, so much good in the chapter I read this morning in Doing Good is Simple by Chris Marlow and what a perfect time of year to read…

Welcome Back!!

What a wonderful time of year. How was your Thanksgiving? We had the opportunity to spend some quality time with our children this past week, starting with Thanksgiving on Saturday.

The Word of the Day is Apathy

Our oldest daughter told us two days ago about wanting to move home and, the first night, I laid in bed thinking…

One Thing

An unexpected thing happened when I started reading – tears started pouring down my face. I wasn’t prepared for that. When I choose these books, I don’t really look through them, I just trust that it’s the one I need to read and buy it. This one was the same. No perusing its pages first,…

New Book Monday

Today has been a little rough. My two daughters are both having a┬áhard day. One is home from school and one is away at school. I had one on video chat and the other in the room with us. They both feel the same way and, sometimes, it’s just hard to know what to say….
