From Shame to Shalom

People often chuckle when I say this, but I assure you it’s true: I have never read my own book. Well, at least not since it was published into an actual book book. (I did read draft after draft after DRAFT of it when we were actually writing the silly thing.) ANYWAY—sometimes I think that I really should read it …

Add in one good thing …

Years ago, my dear friend Joe Adams gave me some great advice re: disciplines / health goals, etc. I was trying to cut back on my soda consumption. (Yes, yes, I know how HORRIBLE soda is. Truly. But it’s still hard for me to give up.) And he encouraged me to NOT think of it as “giving up soda,” but …

I am rereading (and enjoying thoroughly) Eugene Peterson’s “Traveling Light: Meditations on St. Paul’s Letter of Freedom”. (Thanks again, Pastor Bostrom, for the wonderful gift of this book for our family!) My current chapter is on Galatians 6:11-18: “See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand. It is those who want to make a …

Sometimes It Looked a Little Like This

Melodee is back to blogging over at The RadleyPorch and I’m so happy she is. Oh! How I would love to borrow her brain for just a few minutes to know even HALF of what she knows about literature and music and faith and, well, just life. She is a beautiful young woman, but her beauty has a depth to …

Striving to Be Content

Sophia and I are sad today and prayerful as we are striving to be content with something, ummmm, inconvenient and frustrating that is happening to our family. (It’s really “no big deal”—not a child with cancer or the loss of a parent or something truly serious. But we are sad nonetheless and asking God to help us to trust Him …

Taking Care of Young Children Is Not That Hard — Well, Until You Try to Do ANYTHING ELSE Too

If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, then you know that I am married to a husband who models servant leadership. Fred is extraordinarily quick to set aside his own comfort in order to serve me—and he has (happily and eagerly) sacrificed greatly over many a weekend so that I could go and serve at various women’s …
