Lately, I have been walking through a unique season in my life that has me thinking about the nuances of love we don’t often hear about. Yes. Love can be beautiful, fulfilling, and life-giving, but there are seasons when love is simply a challenge — when love is sacrificial love. Last year, my husband and…

Looking Back

The other day, I googled quotes on looking back. Boy, what a mistake. First, the volume of opinion about whether or not looking back in your life is a great, or terrible, idea is substantial. 50% of all the quotes I read centered around the idea that looking backward in life is unnecessary, unproductive, and…

Why Should You Be Afraid?

Time to Step Out

Is it too late to wish you a Happy New Year? I say no. HAPPY NEW YEAR! At the end of 2021, my family and I tried something together for the first time. We went snowmobiling. I’ll admit it…I was anxious about the whole thing. Being injury prone, getting hurt was the very first thing…

What do you REALLY want for Christmas?

As Christmas approaches, we are all asked an increasingly more difficult question to answer year after year. What do you want for Christmas?  This was such an easily answered question when we were kids. I’ll take one of everything, please!  When I was younger, Christmas was all about presents for me.

Jesus is Leading

My family is full of musicians – they sing, play instruments, and harmonize. Whenever my adult kids are home, there is singing throughout the house. It’s one of my favorite sounds. Dance has always been my preferred art form. I’ve been known to make my family laugh by breaking out unexpected dance moves at the…

Let Your Words Heal Not Wound

As many of you know, my wife and I have a teenage daughter. She is a wonderful girl yet challenging. Those who have/had teenagers can attest to how their moods can change in a flash and how that moodiness can ripple through a family. It’s easy to let a scowl, tone of voice, or harsh…
