Birthday season: last but not least

The weather where I live is changing into our fall season, with a burst of vibrant colors decorating the trees before we head into seemingly endless winter. October marks the last of the birthdays in our household until February, where I would love to assume that four months of rest and prep time will yield... Continue Reading →

What do we (literally) stand for?

I don't normally post inflammatory things. In fact, I studiously avoid even the appearance of inflammatory-ness on social media (yes, I just made up a word but I'm an editor so it's okay). Why is this so? I work at a church. As someone whose job involves being in the public eye quite a bit... Continue Reading →

#WATWB When in doubt, bake!

I'm sure a lot of people will be posting flood/hurricane stories for this month's We Are the World Blogfest (#WATWB), and I'm no different. Actually, this one kind of tickled me because it sounds like something I'd do in that situation. In Houston, workers at El Bolillo Bakery found themselves trapped at work due to...

Shared life, happy life

When I said we had a streak of birthdays from July through October, I wasn't exaggerating. You can't shake a calendar around this place without a birthday falling out. And this month, just a few days ago, my hubby celebrated a milestone birthday . . . which, for some reason, my autocorrect changed to "millstone"... Continue Reading →

Millenials ruin everything. Everything.

MILLENIALS WRECK ENTIRE WORLD: NEWS AT 11 You know, that's something I'm growing tired of reading and hearing. All my children qualify as millenials, according to the "official" dating system for these types of things. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure none of them (or their friends) have ruined life as... Continue Reading →

#WATWB: When community is family

This is my first official post for the We Are the World Blogfest, and I thought I'd start it out right in my own backyard. Sometimes I forget that there are good things happening nearby. We don't always have to look at some far-off country, or even the opposite end of our own country, to... Continue Reading →

You’re so practical, James

When our creative team at work began to plan our promo for the next sermon series, an eleven-week study of the book of James, we came up with the title "FaithWorks." As all the graphics and plans started to come together, I started getting excited about going through this particular book once again. It had... Continue Reading →

We Are the World Blogfest

Hey, everyone, I thought I'd give a quick heads-up today so you all might pop on by next Friday, August 25, to my blog. I'm participating in a blog hop called "We Are The World Blogfest" (tagged on social media as #WATWB). The idea of this blogfest is just as the picture above states: in... Continue Reading →

Our baby is 24

Our oldest child (who is certainly no longer a child by anyone's definition) turned twenty-four years old this past week, and I have no idea how that happened. Wasn't it just a handful of years ago that I was pregnant? There are times when it sure seems like it was yesterday. The oldest child in... Continue Reading →
