12 Days of Blogmas.

Good morning, beautiful people! Yes, you. You are beautiful and I am not the only one who says so. It is a chilly 55º outside and overcast, so it's feeling like a proper autumn day. Honestly, I'm looking around my house, thinking about digging in the Christmas boxes for some more decorations while Carrie Underwood... Continue Reading →

One Man.

God often uses impossible odds to bring a mighty victory. What might look like a lost battle to us, God still sees the victory to come. Next to [Eleazar] was Shammah son of Agee the Hararite...and the Israelites fled. But he stood in the midst of the ground and defended it and slew the Philistines;... Continue Reading →

When the Day Goes Wrong.

Today is just "one of those days". I woke up wishing for more sleep as I was up a lot with Isbe throughout the night. There have been a few times I wanted to put myself in timeout. Then to top it all off, one of the hubby's presents came in completely wrong and the... Continue Reading →

Lasagna and Me.

Even though I love spaghetti, and Italian food in general, Lasagna is not a dish I enjoyed while growing up. Crazy, right? Is it any wonder, then, that my first attempt at making Lasagna was...well, not a disaster, but it was a mess. Lasagna Classico from Olive Garden Olive Garden's Tour of Italy is one...

(2 Sam. 14:17;20) Yet David was still human and made mistakes. Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes was inaction when he should've acted,... Continue Reading →

It’s Potty Training Time!

All right, here we go. Potty training. Round two. Yep, it's that time again but I have a feeling this time will be easier. I remember trying to potty train Ade. I think I tried a total of three different times to potty train him. I scoured the internet for tips on how to potty... Continue Reading →

Nights of Food and Wine.

About eight years ago, I would meet up with a friend of mine and her roommate and we would have a food and wine night. We only did this a few times but I had so much fun during those nights that it's stuck. I even tried some foods that I had previously disliked and... Continue Reading →

Before the Calling.

For the entirety of my life, I have been told I have a great calling on my life, that God saved me as He did at birth because He has a special purpose for my life. And I dreamed of the day that great calling would begin. As I grew up I began asking the... Continue Reading →

Being the Home’s Heart.

I am a homemaker. By this title, it is my job to make the place we dwell into a home. What does this mean? It is my job to sit and determine the spirit--the atmosphere--of our home. That means that whatever atmosphere I want for our dwelling is the spirit that I need to live... Continue Reading →
