Did you know that God is ambidextrous
Working in and through us
With an Even-Handedness
Depending upon what, He is trying to accomplish, in us
There are times, He will move on the left
In complete and utter silence
An invisible but ever-present presence
In our vulnerability and weakness
Then in an instant
With Power and Authority
He switches to His Right, with equal sonority
Proving His… Continue

It’s a tough economy and times are tight. Everyone wants to cut expenses without giving up quality of life.
I do, too.
In fact, I’ve been learning to “tightwad” for over a decade. Sadly, I’ve not mastered it, but I have found a balance in my life. I prefer to spend money on priorities, rather than having it just dribble away with each purchase.
Thing is, I love… Continue

Last night I wrote a post about how much the women's revolution has angered me and the need for Two Income Households stampeding on the "family life". I did not mean to upset so many people. I am not going to Continue
say that they all had it wrong, but I will say it was a poorly written
post if it upset so many people. My reasons for writing such a post was
to find out how working moms handled their lives emotionally and
mentally and to ask how much real quality time they get to…

Repeat after me: Consignment Sales are not Garage Sales, Consignment Sales are not Garage Sales...There's a lot of "misunderstanding" about consignment sales. Until you've been to a
really good one, its hard to appreciate the full value in these sales.
If you are one of those trendy moms who is skeptical of the whole
consignment thing, here are a few things you should know.
1. You Won’t Be Wearing What… Continue

Today is officially the last day of July. I can't believe this summer has been flying by so fast. It feels like yesterday I was getting out the summer clothes and planning Raelyn's birthday festivities. It feels like time is just passing me by! And has anyone else noticed that it seems like it's already starting to get dark out sooner? Apparently, a cold front is coming through as well so this last day of July is feeling more like mid-September. I'm not ready yet! … Continue

Last summer we started our "letter of the day" study. It's taken us a while, but we finally got through the remaining letters of the alphabet so that I could assemble the collage pages into a book. Munch has gotten fairly proficient at writing her upper case letters, so I added some practice with lower case letters.
Letter S,s- We used rubber stamps and stapled on straws to decorate the collage page.… Continue

While watching one of his new Mighty Machines DVD's.
"Mom, what's going to happen now?" He asks me, his eyes glued to the firetruck on the screen.
"I don't know, Cameron."
Very annoyed, he smacks his hands down on the arms of his chair and says,
"Why don't you know… Continue

It's been ages since I've visited the Bay Area Discovery Museum
in Fort Baker/Sausalito, at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.
I actually volunteered at the children's museum back in high school. At the time, they were located in a shopping center and maybe took up one or two storefronts. I'd organize crafts in the art room, pick up all… Continue

Yes. It’s been hot here.
No. This recipe is not altogether organic.
Nor is it superbly healthy, complicated or beautiful.
But beware if you’re pregnant, hungry, or looking for a quick-filling meal on a hot day. This one takes but a few moments to prepare and requires no patience at all. Unless you don’t have access to Fritos (or some similar corn chip). Do not ask me how many of these we consumed while I was pregnant. Glenn should be a big fan. Just… Continue

But the crowds found out and followed Him, and He welcomed them
and spoke to them concerning the kingdom of God; and those who had need
of healing, He healed., Luke 9:11
...Who would have ever thought,
you could join a social network, and the power of the Lord, be
revealed. Read a blog and know in your heart, that He is real...speaking
to His beloved still.
Not from a burning bush...but as simple as a… Continue
