Fred and I have come to the conclusion that–although we had the best of intentions and truly THOUGHT it would be OK–scheduling fourteen out of town trips for me in a five month period was just NOT WISE. And unless the Lord makes it clear to us that we should change our thinking in the future, we are not going …

Peacemaker Clubs in Bozeman!

We’re having a wonderful time in Bozeman! Samara, Scout & William drove down from Helena and Sophia and I made it over the mountains (we were praying for our old Honda!) to meet them: We stopped by The Peacemaker Clubs to learn more about how to make a “5 A’s Apology” — and have lots of fun with games, puppets …

Add One Thing

I am continuing my “up & down” life re: eating in a moderate and disciplined manner. But I continue to be encouraged (and convicted!) by friends like Pastor JollyBlogger and PalmTreePundit who gently model godly eating for us all.

Thomas the Tank Engine for GIRLS!

My original Thomas the Tank Engine for GIRLS blog post continues to receive a LOT of traffic. I really think there is a HUGELY untapped market here and if I had money to invest (or any related SKILLS–like the ability to SEW), I’d jump in and start advertising on ebay or something.

Given added effectiveness …

Pastor Anyabwile continues to knock it out of the park on his PureChurch blog: Repentance and the 21st Century Man He includes a lengthy quote by C. John Miller. Consider just an excerpt (emphases mine): “Effective counseling is principally a carrying forward in private of specific applications of the preaching ministry in the church. The gospel message is announced boldly …

Laughing laughing laughing

Oh, how I LOVE PalmTreePundit!! Thank you, Anne, for linking to the giggle: Prayers for Myers-Briggs Types Here’s mine: “INTJ: Lord, keep me open to other’s ideas, *wrong* though they may be.” I totally laughed at ALL of them! But especially: – ISTP: God, help me to consider people’s feelings, even if most of them ARE hypersensitive. (This is Fred’s …
