Verdict In: Not Guilty

John 8:32
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

When I was a little girl growing up in Kenya, my parents would pack up the family twice a year, and we would head off to a week-long missions retreat. During the day, my parents would sit through business meetings and sessions while the [...]

And So We Lick Our Wounds

Sydney was beside herself.  As I was pulling away from the carpool pick-up line I couldn’t help but wonder who this little monster was in the back seat of my car.  She had asked me if we could go to Starbucks for a girls’ day, and I had said no.  I warned her before I dropped her [...]

As summer is quickly approaching, I am compiling a stack of books to keep me company at the pool, park, beach, Starbucks, airplane, etc.  I love to read, but find myself shelving much anticipated reading projects as motherhood, wifehood and ministry pull at me like tug-of-war.  I’m not complaining (hear me out).  I love (almost) every dimension [...]

An Early Christmas Gift

Nope.  This is not another giveaway.  I apologize if I got your hopes up, but don’t let that keep you from reading on.  This post is a pre-holiday treat that I hope you will enjoy.
 
Once November hits I officially become glued to my day planner.  It seems that holiday activities don’t wait until the traditional [...]

A Good Read

During my “quiet time” this afternoon I picked up Mark Batterson’s book “In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day”, not realizing how quickly I would be sucked in. It’s not a novel or action packed fictional piece – that’s not to say it is a book lacking in adventure. In about an [...]

Book-ation

Book-ation: def. – to take a break/hiatus from routine reading habits – books, articles, etc. – replacing them with literature not ordinarily read.
 
I’m on a “book-ation”.
 
Usually what one might find on my nightstand are books covering a myriad of topics like parenting, spiritual development/disciplines, marriage, counseling, Bible study, etc.   While I was wasting a few [...]
