It hit me that I haven’t posted on my “peace with FOOD” struggles in a little while, so I thought I’d share a little something that’s been new for me in 2007 … I gave up SODA for the ENTIRE YEAR. Yup–I haven’t had ANY soda (not even diet!) since December. And MAN has it been STRANGE. First of all–it’s …
I’m thinking about putting together a book proposal for my publisher on the topic of Peacemaking Mamas–Growing in Grace Through the Childrearing Years (or something along those lines). Just brainstorming, I was thinking that the “peace with God, others, and within” structure might still be good and would lend itself to topics like: PEACE WITH GOD 1. Questioning God 2. …
I couldn’t sleep last night. I won’t bother to list out all of the “reasons” why … but it was hard and scary and I was incredibly troubled in my spirit. At one point, I turned to Fred and said, “I think I’m going crazy.” To which he replied: “You’re not crazy, Tara. You’re just sad.” I could never merit …
Mrs. A. posted a great quote over at PeaceGals: “Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.” Victor Hugo (It was especially timely because I couldn’t SLEEP last night.) Thanks for the reminder that God is awake, …
Ahhhh! A little progress. A tiny glimpse of God’s work of sanctification and growth in grace in my life. Ahhhh! Thanks, God. What a gift. Here’s what happened … I was looking around my–organized but dusty–home trying to figure out what toys and books had to be moved in order to make room for our small group … And I …
(BEFORE my previous morose post … 🙂 ) My friend sent me an email today and one line said: “And His banner over us is LOVE!” What a great reminder. And what a friend too. Remember that His banner IS over you! And His banner is love. Amen.
I opened up a SUPER FUN package in the mail today … the Korean version of our book, Peacemaking Women, was released by Baker! (Lili finds it fascinating … ) Pretty fun to see the “Slippery Slope” in Korean, eh? Love to all and Happy Monday, Tara B.
We pray for and support a missionary in Iraq, “RL.” He led the short-term missions team I was on to Outer Mongolia in 1991 (his family stayed on full-time and moved to Iraq soon after our brave forces liberated those precious people). A few weeks ago, robbers broke into their home when RL was away teaching at a Bible conference. …

PS I still have some FREE copies of The Peacemaker and When People are Big and God is Small to give away! I hope that you’ll consider joining our “new & improved” PeaceGals discussion board and then email me your …
(Don’t worry! I promise not to turn this blog into the “all Goldens all the time” blog … but I REALLY wanted you to see this picture. 🙂 ) Is THIS the way to blog or what? I had no idea I could type and hold a Golden on my chest too. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Thank You, God, for Lili.
