Bye-bye, 2020!

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. I remember that last New Year’s Eve, as I sat with my […]

Little People Know

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 […]

Home Hospitality

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.

Gosh, I wish I knew! I’ll be 100% […]

Heart of the Homemaker

“How does a homemaker care for her heart, so that she can maintain her home with a life-giving rhythm?” So read the writing prompt from The Homemaker’s Club Instagram page I enjoy. I immediately thought of a Bible verse I had drilled into me as a kid in the Kingdom Seekers girls’ group. “How can […]

Wild Girl

I think my youngest has ADHD. Not in a “wow she’s so hyper, something must be wrong with her!” way. But in a real “I’ve researched this disorder and you have all the markers” way. Her doctor was hesitant to diagnose her before four, but now that we’re here… The evidence is currently running back […]
