Passport 2 Identity Weekend

A few months ago my 14 year old daughter and I went away for another special weekend.  It was our Passport 2 Identity weekend.  We used the program from Family Life Today.  I started with praying for wisdom and insight into the issues my sweet girl faces.    I picked a date and then I…

Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 3)

Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 3)

My pregnancy progressed with characteristic morning sickness.  We did not want to announce our pregnancy until we were past the first trimester.  After an exciting announcement like a new baby, it is so difficult to announce a miscarriage.  It was not easy to hide when I threw up several times a day.  My husband finally…

Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 2)

I discovered I was pregnant just before my 40th birthday.  Whew!  Just before the deadline I had imposed upon myself.  A few weeks into the pregnancy I started the characteristic bleeding that I had experienced with all of my miscarriages, as well as with my younger daughter.  We were headed off on a cruise to…

Introducing My Newest Doll: Rainbow Baby (Part 1)

Two years ago I gave up on a little dream.  I gave up on having a third child.  I was not desperate to have another baby.  I was content to be the mother of my two wonderful daughters, if that was what the Lord had planned for me.  But I had always thought I would…

In Sickness and in Health Means More Than You Think

In Sickness and in Health Means More Than You Think

I like sweets.  That comes as no surprise to those of you who know me.  Did you know my husband hates to floss?  Put those two things together and it gives us each plenty of nagging ammunition.  But, here is something important that I have learned about marriage:  I cannot complain about my weight or…

Why Do We Hate Sacrifice?

Why Do We Hate Sacrifice?

I am facing the birth of my third child any day now.  I have had the great privilege of being pregnant along with my best friend.  She is having her eighth child.  I am the oldest of eight children myself.  The outpouring of love, as evidenced by our friends at our joint Storybook Baby shower, is…

Storybook Baby Shower

Storybook Baby Shower

I wanted to share with you the loveliest baby shower that my vintage doll planned for me.  In a crazy turn of events I found myself pregnant at the same time as my dearest friend in the world.  Both of us have amazing teen and tween daughters who put all of their talents together, and…

On a Babymoon

On a Babymoon

We just returned from a glorious weekend in the Florida Keys.  Just my husband and I.  It came on the heels of a big production of Beauty & the Beast that my children were involved in.  It was sandwiched between that and their dance recital, co-op final exams and reaching that magic full term window…

When not to read the ancient classics

When not to read the ancient classics

I love classical education.  I am watching it work before my very eyes.  I am enjoying hanging detailed information through dialectic discussion on the pegs of knowledge that were formed by memorywork back in the grammar stage.  But as discussed in previous posts I have a few a few reservations, too.  I am wary of…

Another use for my Cricut machine

Another use for my Cricut machine

I have made diecuts for scrapbooking, fondant cut outs for cakes, cards for Valentines and stickers for gift wrapping with my handy Cricut cutting machine.  But I have recently discovered my new favorite use for that little wonder that can sometimes sit for too long and collect dust: graphic t-shirts!
