30 Free and Fun Things to Do This Summer | Board Games

Living in Montana for fifteen years meant outside fun in the summer. We only had three months of good weather, so we went to the lake, went to the park, and played in the yard. In Little Rock we have nine months of good weather, and then there is summer. I was shocked to find out that kids in the south spend a lot of time inside, but I understand! Being at the park is no fun when it’s one {Read More}

Our Job is to Protect Our Children’s Innocence | One Mom’s Opinion

I can remember the first horror film I watched was when I was a third- or fourth-grader. The plot line was about a man who moved into a haunted house, and then he uncovers all the horror that happened there. I’m scarred for life, seriously. Who let me watch that? (Sorry, Mom and Dad, but it’s true.) I thought about that movie many times over the years. It didn’t leave me. That movie (and others that followed) brought fears and {Read More}

My Writing Desk | Jennifer Deibel

OK, this is my writing “desk”: my lap. I do almost all of my writing either when my girls are at school and baby is napping, or when everyone is in bed. I write sitting in my favorite spot on the “big couch” on either my iPad or my trusty dinosaur of a Dell laptop. Here is what’s on my “desk”: – hubby’s fleece Cowboys blanket . . . even though it was May when I took these photos, it was {Read More}

30 Free and Fun Things to Do This Summer | Explore Your Neighborhood

Last week Alyssa wanted to go on an adventure or, as she says in her two-year-old words, “Go -venture.”It was almost nap time, so I knew we could go far. *Enter brilliant idea* . . . we decided to explore our neighborhood.

The Truth about Breaking out of the Christian Bubble | One Mom’s Opinion

Image: When we moved to Little Rock two years ago, I knew it would be easy to slip into the Bible Belt bubble. My husband’s job is with a Christian organization (FamilyLife), so surrounding ourselves with like-minded friends would be easy. Big, beautiful churches are within a few miles of our home, and I knew we could make great friends at church, too. But is that all life is about—to be surrounding with fellow Christians and enjoy life? Deep inside {Read More}
