Pray for Hannah Cate

This post is kinda personal. Many years ago I met a really neat woman.  She was a fellow homeschooler with a large, fun family.  We weren’t particularly close, but I always enjoyed spending time with her.  She was and is one of those people that you always walk away from with a smile on your […]

My fav shower cleaner

Friday is cleaning day at my house (at least in theory!)…and every day is saving day!  So I was thrilled a few years ago to come across a DIY cleaning solution that was guar-an-teed to work great.  Now, you have to understand that in my experience ~ even though I’m a real DIY nut ~ […]

Lessons from the Tub

I find it ironic that many of life’s most profound lessons are often revealed in the most mundane of places. At least, that’s how it works for me. I’ll be minding my own business when all of a sudden, BAM! A new revelation; a deep, my-life’s-never-gonna-be-the-same-again-if-I-take-this-seriously nugget of wisdom. I discovered one such treasure almost […]

Hashbrown Casserole

This yummy casserole is great for church pot-lucks or large family gatherings. It’s even earned a permanent spot on our Christmas morning menu. I get everything mixed up and ready to go on Christmas Eve and pop it in the oven the next morning right before we start opening presents. It’s an excellent way to […]

Oh…my…goodness…  How that common teenage response these days used to irk me!!  Usually delivered with a “yeah-I don’t-really-care-what-you-think-or-have-to-say” attitude, it is the modern-day equivalent of delivering the same message.  In God’s mercy, however, I recently had a personal revelation that has actually got ME started on using the word.  But let me explain…

Happily Ever After?

Recently I was working on an ah-mazing blog post about marriage. I was listing some creative ideas for keeping the home fires burning. You know, stuff like, “Leave notes in his briefcase or lunchbox for him to find during the day.”  And “Grab his booty when he’s least expecting it…just to let him know you’re […]

Egg Pie – or Quiche (?)

I may be dating myself, but some years ago there was this saying “Real men don’t eat quiche”.  Well, my hubby and I used to laugh at that, because I had this go-to recipe for leftovers that I would frequently prepare for supper…which (of course) was pretty-much quiche-based. As our first-born son got older, however, […]

Shower paper

Ah, Mondays!  Dontcha just love’em?  Ok, ok, I can hear the resounding “NO!” from y’all, but please hear me out. Monday.  The beginning…  A whole brand new week before you…  A fresh, clean slate…  5 days of possibility stretching out, just waiting…  Now, doesn’t that make it sound (at least a little) better?! And there is […]
