Warning! Narnia Movie Discussed

(If you haven’t yet seen the Narnia movie and don’t want to know about any details in advance, please skip this blog! 🙂 ) So last night my friend and I left the kids with the dads and went to see The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. What a wonderful, wonderful movie! Initially, I wasn’t that excited to see …

New Year Resolutions

So I’ve discovered some wonderful websites and blogs in the last few weeks. The writers are encouraging, real, and God-glorifying. I’ve been blessed! But I’m also embarrassed — at myself. It just seems like these women are so happy — and I struggle so much just to make it through my day. I mentioned this to Fred last night and …

When sledding ends in a SPLASH!

Montana weather sure is strange! A few days ago is was MINUS 15 degrees. Brrrrrrrrr. Yesterday it got up to 50 degrees! (Above zero, yes.) The blue sky and fluffy clouds beckoned so of course Sophia and I headed out to the playground. But what’s a trip to the park without friends? So here come Auntie Samara & Scout & …

We are also receiving extraordinarily edifying sermons each Sunday — how I urge you to visit Rocky Mountain Community …

Camping in the Living Room

Just for fun, we put up our tent in the living room. It’s been a blast cuddling in there — reading books on top of pillow piles, chuckling at Choza’s response (we were surprised that she wanted to be in there with all of us), etc. etc. We’ll have to take it down by Tuesday because our Bible study would …

“I will love them freely.”

A few nights ago, our family devotions were based on C.H. Spurgeon’s “Morning & Evening” devotional on Hosea 14:4. I was incredibly blessed (yet again) by Pastor Spurgeon’s message, so I am hoping that I will not violate any copyrights or upset anyone by posting it here. (Since I found numerous online sites that have the entire book, I’m assuming …

Thank God for Friends!

This weekend is the only weekend that I am home from September 16 to November 11, so I’m trying to get lots of cleaning and housework done. Early this morning two of my favorite friends came over and helped me to clean my desperately in need of cleaning home. Wow! Did we carry out a lot of paper towels filled …
