Sleeping on the Floor

This past Sunday, my husband mentioned in his sermon the fact that we can be thankful for a roof over our head and warm beds, as there are many who do not have beds or have to sleep on the floor, in a foreign country, for example. Will was apparently listening, as he then said […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – The Usefulness of the Bible for Gaining Wisdom

After a long hiatus due to illness and traveling, I am back at my blog! I’m sharing today on how the Bible is useful in the pursuit of wisdom. Many people long to be wise and to make the right decisions (myself included) and the Bible gives us a great guide on how to obtain […] Read more…

Making Imaginations

I went to Will’s parent-teacher conference (pretty ridiculous for preschool, but I went along with it) last Tuesday at the Christian school he attends.  His teacher said he has a good imagination, which didn’t surprise me. So when we got home, my husband asked Will how he was doing at school. “My teacher told me my […] Read more…

We are Sick :(

I apologize for not posting a meditation today, but unfortunately we are all very sick in this house and it may possibly be the swine flu. Yuck. We think we’re all over the worst of it though, so I’ll try my best to put up a post tomorrow. Good night all! Read more…

Zucchini Bread

We love zucchini bread! It’s so fun to grab some big zucchinis from the garden and grate them up in my Salad Shooter and then proceed to make loaves and loaves of zucchini bread. The kids (and adults) in our house just eat it up. Here is my recipe: Zucchini Bread 3 eggs, beaten 1 […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – The Vine and the Branches

Did you know you can grow grapes in North Dakota? You can, and here’s proof! John 15:5 says, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit. Apart from me, you can do nothing.” God’s Word is useful in helping us […] Read more…

How Do You Know When You’re A Health Nut?

…When your son, when asked what he wants for a snack, yells out, “Applesauce and probiotics!” In other news, it’s my husband Kirk’s birthday today. He’s a whole thirty-one years old! Happy birthday, honey! Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – The Usefulness of the Bible

Is the Bible still “useful” in this day and age? Were the people of the past simple-minded, stupidly depending on a book full of stories to tell them how to live? Are we so enlightened in modern times that we no longer have need of God’s Word to guide us in decision making and choice […] Read more…

What Does Chocolate Pudding Remind You of When Your Son Says…

I think from now on I’ll call my Wednesday post Wednesday’s Will-ism, since it inevitably does have words, so it’s not really No-words Wednesday now is it? Will to my husband at lunch today: “Daddy, when we went into see Leah after her nap, she pooped. Then I said, ‘Wow, Leah, you made a stinky!’” […] Read more…

Monday’s Meditation – Psalm 18

Wow, I love Psalm 18! It has such wonderful encouragements and promises from God, which is timely for each one of us at different points in our lives. Take some time to read through this psalm tonight or tomorrow morning with your family. It is a bit long for little ones (fifty verses), but you […] Read more…

The Blessing of Relaxation

Friday’s are wonderful, aren’t they? As the work week draws to a close (for most of us), Friday nights are the time to relax at home with your family or friends, go out to a hometown football game under the lights, or have a fun evening out with someone you love. I always feel more […] Read more…

Summer in September?

Playing in the pool, on September 15th! It was 85 degrees that day in North Dakota. While watching the Weather Channel one day, Will ran over to me while I was changing Leah’s diaper. “Mom, I have some terrible news for you,” he said dejectedly. “It looks like it will be cloudy with a chance […] Read more…

Jesus–God’s Forgotten Son?

My son was reciting John 3:16 the other night: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only forgotten son…” “Wait a minute, what?” I said. “Yeah, his forgotten son, ” said Will, very confidently. “Begotten son,” I replied. “Oh, yeah.” He said, matter-of-factly. Then, with a puzzled look, “Who’s that?” Which begs […] Read more…
