This Little Light of "Ours"

Our town was hit with two tornadoes the day after Christmas.  Families lost everything, including lives. I posted this short post on my personal blog as I was heading out the door to help. 

On December 26, 2015, my daughters, two stuffed unicorns, a Mini Schnauzer, the head of an English Mastiff and I crowded into a tiny shower.  We sang songs about Jesus and played with a flashlight while tornado sirens blared in the background. My husband stood on the porch of our two…

Precious Christmas Memories 2015

It's been a very Blessed year and I'm beyond grateful that we were granted a beautiful Christmas celebrating with the special people in our lives. I've had numerous conversations with my children about privileges and being grateful for everything they have--most especially the gift of life, love & health! Above all things, it's our unity that I'm so thankful for! It is the true meaning of Christmas & I wish everyone peace: mentally and physically, to live life to its true potential…

Beyond the Bottom Line: Considering the True cost of Christmas in 2015

According to the classic festive hit written and sung by crooner Andy Williams, Christmas is the ‘most wonderful time of the year’. While it is hard to argue with the sentiment of this song, it is also fair to surmise that the festive period means something entirely different to adults as it does to children. In fact, the planning and cost associated with organising Christmas can weigh heavily on the shoulders of adults, as a recently survey conducted by Bingosites.net seemed to…

The Reality of Christmas

She was a simple, small-town girl, a virgin whose obedience meant she was about to give birth to the long-awaited Messiah.

He was a carpenter, visited by an angel and called to a holy mission that would change not only his life, but the entire course of mankind.

It was…

My First Cookie Swap!

20151211_192731[1]

This past weekend I hosted my very first cookie swap! After a random idea and a post on a whim on Facebook, I had what I expected to be a good handful of attendees, however, after a lot of illnesses and other medical emergencies of a few of my expected attendees, it ended up being a small house. No worries! That just meant more cookies and wine for us.



If you have never been to…

The thing that changed my mind about Santa

*feel free to check out the original post, http://www.shadesoflovely.com/the-thing-that-changed-my-mind-about-santa/*

I grew up not believing in Santa Claus. My parents would tell you that we celebrated the historic "Saint Nicholas" so we did technically partake— but we never believed he was real. Nor did we receive gifts from Santa, leave out cookies, or emphasize Santa as a major part of…

4 Things I Hate About My Christmas Birthday

Originally published on Just Playing House.

You guessed it! I have a Christmas birthday. Born December 25th.

What I've learned through the years is that it's not that unusual. I've met quite a few people that share that day with me. My guess is most of us are pretty indifferent about it. It's really all we've ever known. Yet for some reason, the world is fascinated by it.

In spite of my indifference, there are certain…

Simplicity and Christmas: striving for a holiday season free from stress

I’m relatively new and inexperienced when it comes to this whole “you’re in charge of Christmas for your family!” thing. For the past few years, my husband and I have done the holidays on our own in Germany, thousands of miles away from family. Through this experience I have witnessed first hand how easy it is to feel completely overwhelmed by the season— especially when you’re the one responsible for making the holiday magical for all!



I loathe that feeling. The holiday season… Continue
