3 minutes of your time & goodies (probably) coming your way!

Seriously … I love to get biblical and practical resources into the hands of women! And I NEVER give your contact information to ANYONE (not even Peacemakers). SO … take just a couple of minutes BY MIDNIGHT TUESDAY (this all ends on 10/31) and you could win fun stuff! Free stuff! 1. Start a new topic or post a reply …

Forgiveness is better …

Earlier today Sophia, Choza and I headed out to run a couple of errands and bring Fred some soup for lunch. (There is an AMAZING little cafe in Billings run by these two Dutch brothers and their wives and on Fridays they have the world’s best tomato basil soup. It’s out of this world! If you’re even in Billings on …

What a friend …

This morning I called up a woman in my church that I really don’t know very well–but I’ve always wanted to get to know more.

Why I love my pastors …

Just returning from church … reflecting on the morning … and as I think particularly about my pastors, I have to say: I’m a blessed woman.

I reached out to someone this week for help. (You know–you’ve heard me say it a thousand times … what do I need help with? Discipline, prayer, accountability, etc.) I was SO nervous to ask her. Boy it’s hard to be vulnerable!! But God’s grace CONSTRAINED me. Really. I just knew I had to do it and so I did. …

Thank You, God, for this dad …

Have you read this article? Watched this video? Seriously–take a few minutes. Slow down. And enjoy. Strongest Dad in the World Rick Reilly, Sports Illustrated I try to be a good father. Give my kids mulligans. Work nights to pay for their text messaging. Take them to swimsuit shoots. But compared with Dick Hoyt, I suck. Eighty-five times he’s pushed …

first snow!

A friend wrote me an email today and mentioned in an aside that it’s 80 degrees where she lives. Can’t say that about Billings. Here are a few pics from our morning …

The relationship is more important … (AAAAUUUURRRGGGHHH!)

This week I’ve had two very FRUSTRATING experiences with vendors. One has (unjustly) cost me a huge amount for our family’s budget ($500!!), the other has just inconvenienced me and caused me a hassle (but he has the potential of costing us money too). But here’s the thing … I can be such a jerk in my heart! Really. I …
