On Birthing Biblically

On Birthing Biblically

This post is written for born again Christians.  I want to throw out a crazy idea for you to ponder.  Birth involves suffering, as we all know.  Even a C-section or epidural does not remove the suffering from us, only changes it.  Just like in the rest of life, there will be suffering in the…

On Birth and Birth Choices

On Birth and Birth Choices

I joined a prenatal yoga class a few weeks ago.  I was surprised to find myself the only mom who was not experiencing her first pregnancy.  I was not surprised to find myself the only mom over 40.  Listening to the expectations and fears of the group of moms with various backgrounds and ethnicities I…

The Psychcology of Seeing Your Baby – First Ultrasound

The Psychcology of Seeing Your Baby – First Ultrasound

There is nothing like that first blurry image to endear you to that tiny life within your womb.  I had an ultrasound this week.  At 18 weeks so much can be seen.  It told me things that I already knew from the early flutters:  this baby is fond of action, movement, headstands, and head butting…

To Santa Claus or not to Santa Claus?

That is the question many Christians ask themselves when they begin the task of raising children.  Whether ’tis nobler to leave the jolly guy out of it altogether for fear of his supplanting Christ?  Or to enjoy the poetry and romance of a mysterious benefactor spreading goodwill toward men? If your conscience dictates that you…

Celebrating Advent as a Family

We love Christmas.  And Christmas is best celebrated in little increments, that bolster our anticipation of the big day.  After all, advent means “the coming”.  We celebrate the birth of our Lord, but even as we do, we identify with the Jews who waited for their Messiah with longing.  Advent is a time to examine…

Managing Playdates

As I am working here at my computer I am listening to my Sunshine doll and her friend playing in the pool and chatting about life from a 10 year old’s perspective.  They are sipping strawberry cream soda and giggling.  It is the sweetness of childhood friendship in a snapshot moment.   But not all…

The Importance of Grandparents

The Importance of Grandparents

Think back to the important and influential people in your childhood.  On my list, right after my parents, come my grandparents.  I was blessed to live in the same state as all of my grandparents and to even know three of my great-grandparents.  My maternal grandmother had slumber parties for us, my paternal grandmother let…

Things NOT to say to large families

Things NOT to say to large families

Homeschoolers often have large families.  In our little co-op, back when we started, we each had one or two kids (three for Lorri, but two were already grown).  Now I have three, but the three other families have expanded to have seven, eight and eight.  Our co-op has grown! I am the oldest of eight….
