Growing in Faith 

Trusting Disney

Trusting Disney

I just watched Disney’s Onward with my kids. My husband had already watched it and said it was REALLY good! So, of course I had to too. Well, not even five minutes into the movie, I was crying. And the tears really only slowed down in the middle of the movie. I don’t...

Upside-down Remote

Upside-down Remote

Yesterday my kids were trying to watch YouTube using the television and remote control. Of course, the internet went out, and they needed some help. I reset the router, grabbed the remote, and attempted to use the search button. But the thing seemed to be going wonky....

A Virus

A Virus

As we sat in the van at the pharmacy window waiting on my prescription, I noticed the people inside the store. One man was standing in line at the pharmacy wearing rubber gloves- smart for protection against COVID. He was talking to a lady wearing a mask. Also, smart...

We ARE the Church

We ARE the Church

Today was my second Sunday at home due to the CoVID 19 virus. But let me tell you, it’s been pretty neat to see what’s going on online on Sunday mornings! As many of you know, my husband is the associate minister at FCC. They have been working hard to get everything...

Thoughts on the CoVID 19

Thoughts on the CoVID 19

Yesterday I had to go to the doctor. I have a very tight, sore throat. I really did not want to go to the doctor among this CoVID 19 virus, but after weeks of having this annoying sore throat- it was only getting worse. For a week, my kids and I had not left the...

Painting with Twigs

Painting with Twigs

Well, I’m not sure if I’m an awesome mom or crazy. While playing outside one of my children was collecting twigs. Another said, “Hey we could paint with these! Mom, can we paint with twigs?” “Sure!” I said pulling out the paints and blank papers. Well, guess what? The...

Coffee or Hot Water?

Coffee or Hot Water?

This last Saturday, my schedule was a little off as we were planning to make it to the church for Prayer Breakfast. Immediately after I finished my classes, I made a pot of coffee, got the kids up, and then got myself ready (all in about 10 minutes). I walked into the...

Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

My older five children love playing Hide and Seek with their dad in the evenings. Last night, they were playing, while their baby brother just ran around them pretending to play too. Well, at one point my oldest hid behind the curio cabinet. It was a pretty good spot....

Grumbling

Grumbling

Here’s how my day went yesterday:  “Good morning, mom. What’s for breakfast?” “Oatmeal,” I responded. “Instant-pot or packets?” “Instant-pot.” “AHHH Man! I don’t like Instant-pot oatmeal.” “It’s literally exactly the same as the packets. Only I cook them in the...

Leaving a Review

Leaving a Review

I NEED your help! I am quite literally, “just a nobody, trying to tell everybody, all about Somebody, who saved my soul.” (In case you didn’t catch the reference- it’s Casting Crown’s song "Nobody.") The most common reason this Book Project was rejected from...

Thoughts for My Daughter

Thoughts for My Daughter

While cleaning out the basement, I came across an old photo of my siblings and me. (I was like five-years-old.) I awed over it. Then my oldest came over and looked at it. “Mom, that looks like my sister!” He exclaimed. I’ve always thought my daughter slightly...

It’s More Than Dishes

It’s More Than Dishes

Recently our dishwasher decided to stop draining water properly. As a result, I needed to start hand-washing all our dishes. I do not love dishes. When I realized this, I may have given a little huff and reluctantly agreed to hand wash the dishes until the dishwasher...

Time for Fireflies

Time for Fireflies

It was the first week of summer. The boys were attending a day camp at church.  I thought it was a good idea, since being down 2 kids, to schedule a bunch of errands and doctor’s appointments for the week. So, my girls and I had a busy week of running which...

Just Like Dad

Just Like Dad

Every morning I wake my kids up, we eat breakfast, and then I remind them of their morning tasks. “Get dressed, brush your teeth, brush your hair, read your Bibles…” Wednesday morning as I was reading one of my younger kids her Bible, my boys came running to me. “Mom...

The Comparison Trap

The Comparison Trap

Last week I was able to take my kids on an outing that had a huge rock climbing wall! My oldest three happily stood in a long line to complete this task. As they reached the front of the line the workers helped each kid into a harness. Then they went onto the wall....

Check the Box

Check the Box

It’s time for Summer Reading Club at the library!!! YES!!! My kids love reading! As I have written before, it’s not unusual to find my children in their rooms reading books for fun. It’s like the favorite past-time around my house. If they’re not reading story books,...

Imitators

Imitators

  A few days ago, I apparently left my shoes out in the living room. My 3-year-old comes running to me to show that she was wearing my shoes. When my 4-year-old saw me smiling, she asked if she could wear my shoes too. I tossed her a pair of my shoes and sat back...

Frustrated

Frustrated

Not too long ago I took my kids to an art program at the library. Usually the projects are simple and allow for quite a bit of creativity. But not this time... It was more like- Here's the example. Now do it... My oldest struggled... his idea would not come out of his...

Lost

Lost

Have you ever been lost? I have. I am directionally challenged (to put it nicely). So, I know (a little too well) the frustration and insecurities that are included with being lost. I know the feelings of fear, confusion, anger, and helplessness of being lost. I also...
