I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. No, I wasn’t exactly grumpy. I was anxious. There’s a lot happening this month and we went to bed talking about finances. I fell asleep thinking about how to help people who are grieving, feeling like I’m not enough, and panicking about income. My night […]Read More Crushing Fear, Worry, and Anxiety: Part 2 (sort of)
A while back, as I scrolled through Instagram, I saw a post from one of those “hustlers.” You know who I’m talking about. The people who always boast about how they’re hustling, how they’re entrepreneurs, how they’ve got like five different forms of income and they’re always the busiest people they know. The post said […]Read More No thanks, I’m already full!
So 2020… What a bizarre time! Whether your personal pandemic plight has been rife with sorrow or has been relatively easy, we’ve all felt the heaviness of a year of full of economic turmoil, political angst, and illness in one shape or another.

From the Covid-19 panic to election stress to racial tensions to economic hardship, I think […]Read More Thanksgiving: 2020 Edition
This morning, the morning of the 2020 Presidential Election of the United States, I have been listening to Christmas music. Yes, it’s November. No, I don’t care. I need the remembrance of Advent. “Oh come, Thou king of nations, bringAn end to all our sufferingBid every pain and sorrow ceaseAnd reign now as our Prince […]Read More Oh Come, Emmanuel
Sometimes I fear we underestimate how smart kids are. But kids remember so many odd little facts! Even the most seemingly inattentive kids recall more than you’d ever expect. I was listening to my Bible one morning while I made breakfast. I like to have my personal devotions alone in my bedroom and use that […]Read More Little People Know
Happy Monday! Writing again from a prompt. This week’s was, “How is hospitality a foundational pillar of a homemaker’s home?” Oh this is a tricky one. I used to have a real problem with hospitality. Part of it is my introverted nature. I’m shy, I get nervous and fight social anxiety in crowds. The thought […]Read More Home Hospitality
Okay, I’m officially putting all internet moms in time out until you can learn to talk to your sisters kindly. I’m part a few mom groups on Facebook. For those of you who are smarter than me and stay off these kinds of groups, here’s an example of what normally goes down: Mom A asks […]Read More Mom vs Mom: The Mean Girls of the Internet
Oh I have thoughts to ramble through… I’ve talked about how our girls sit in church with us before. It started as a necessity.
