Returned a book …

I was really excited about a certain book I received for Christmas. (Not excited enough to make a GROOVY “SCORE!” photo like our beloved PalmTreePundit did with her pile o’ books, but excited nonetheless.) Its title implied that it would help with faith’s fight against sin specifically concerning the sins that I am tempted to “coddle” or “tolerate.” Sadly … …

Humbling humbling humbling …

I’m working through the DVD’s and study guide (again) and OH MAN! I am totally cracking up at two incredibly humbling things: 1. One of my eagle-eye proofers made the gentle observation that I tend to “overuse” quotation marks to set apart “colloquial” phrases. I thought, “Hmmmmm? I do?” So I did a little “search” in “Word” and “YUP!” There …

Moving to Chicago? (Not scheduled for any time soon.)

Hope you’re all having a nice weekend! Are you getting back to normal in your homes or are you still in crazy holiday mode? Soph cried (literally CRIED) for hours when Kali and Fred left on Wednesday. And then yesterday she asked if we could, “PLEASE go to the airport and get on a plane and MOVE TO CHICAGO.” Guess …

This probably won’t interest you …

Unless you are a current event host to whom I haven’t yet sent my promotional materials (and I don’t think that there are any of you out there!), this probably won’t interest you. BUT … Fred worked SO HARD on this and I’m SO grateful to him and SO proud of his work that I just wanted to show it …

Uncover the Human Body/Anatomy!

Just found the PERFECT book for my little LOVES TO ASK QUESTIONS kid: Uncover the Human Body Now when she asks about what our stomachs look like or how our muscles work or why we drink so much water all day, I can just FLIP to the page and there it is. I saw this referenced on some homeschool blog …

Trying to catch my “button” BEFORE it’s a button

One of my “buttons” in life … (You know, the kind of thing that really TICKS ME OFF and brings out some definitely UNATTRACTIVE, totally NOT-GOD-HONORING, absolutely 100% areas in NEED OF FURTHER SANCTIFICATION in me …) … is when I am working, working, working, working, WORKING like a mad woman and then either: 1. I realize that there is …

Displaced … (But I’m not too worried about it.)

Well, I’ve been temporarily displaced in the heart of my daughter … Apparently, having two adults play constantly with you and lavish only FUN and NO discipline on you can really win over a four year-old’s heart. Yes, yes, Soph has been officially ensorcelled by Kali & her Fred. She doesn’t want to sleep because she just wants to spend …

Friend / Prayer / SHOOTING (?) Group

Well … I’ve had a first. Sunday after church, our little “friend/prayer” group went SHOOTING. Clay pigeons at the rod & gun club … Lessons by deacon Vowell … Cheered on by our men … We did it! I have to say … I truly thought that the statistical possibility of us hitting ANYTHING (other than AIR) was like, ZERO …

Worriers are visionaries minus the optimism–Ed Welch

Ed Welch keeps on knocking them out of the ballpark in my estimation! I’m continuing to work through his latest book, Running Scared: Fear, Worry, and the God of Rest, and today’s reading was particularly appropriate because YESTERDAY–totally by God’s GRACE!–I tackled a fear (entering the FEEDBACK I received from my dear “heresy-checking” friends on my DVD series), engaged in …
