Following the Recipe | Guest Post + Giveaway

Our youngest children, ages nine and eleven, are learning to cook. Tuesday is their day to plan and cook dinner. Yesterday, as I helped my daughter, I asked if she had read through the recipe and understood the directions. Sheepishly, she admitted she had not. I assured her if she followed the directions correctly, the dish would be delicious. Inwardly I chuckled, thinking of many recipes I tweak, or dishes I prepare without a recipe, Amelia-Bedelia style: “A little of {Read More}

How I would love to be an older woman in your {Read More}

The 3 Marks of a Filling Love | Guest Post {+ Giveaway}

We all struggle with identity—who we are, why we are, and what we have to offer the world. About the time we find a scrap of worth or significance, something happens to make us fully aware of how much we lack. A harsh word. A broken relationship. A blunder or failure. Then, in spite of our best efforts at positivity or affirmation, we can’t escape the insecurity and aloneness we experience as a result. When it comes to this epidemic {Read More}

Why It’s OK To Label Our Kids

We’ve all heard it said that it’s important not to label our children. “She’s the shy one.” “He’s the trouble maker.” “If she’s this moody now she’s going to be big trouble by the time she’s a teen.” As a mom of ten, I learned personally that this type of labeling does not benefit our children. Up until my daughter, Leslie, was four-years-old I thought she was shy. She always hid behind me when we were around new people, and {Read More}
