That Goose Just Bit Me!

Today, I'm guest posting over at Crafty Mom 101 as part of Guest Post Month! Here's a little peek at my post to get you started: At the beginning of Summer, I thought about making a Bucket List.  My kids are now old enough to enjoy many of our local attractions so I wanted to make the most of this season.  Of course, I never actually got around to writing the bucket list, but I did have a lot of ideas floating around my head.  Walk to a nearby Dairy Queen to get ice cream?  Check!  Visit … [Read more...]

Many parents want to teach their children about the Bible, but don't know where to start.   Perhaps you can relate?  Thankfully, teaching kids about the stories in the Bible is not as hard as you may think.  Here's a few ideas to get you started! 1.

What We’re Reading Wednesday

Hey Everyone!  We haven't had much time to read this week, since I've been busy PACKING! In a whirlwind of a decision, we decided to put our house on the market and I have been scrambling to pack away all the pictures and nonessential stuff so it will be ready whenever someone wants to see it.   My husband and I have been casually looking for a new house on a quieter street for about 8 months, but haven't seen anything that really struck our fancy until last week.   Of course, we have to sell … [Read more...]

Our recent trip to the library left me hauling four bags of books home.  Guess I went a little crazy!!

How I Prepared for the Ministry {Guest Post}

A friend I met at The Gathering asked me to guest post on his blog today, telling how I formally prepared for the ministry.  He's got some terrific people lined up for the rest of the week including Amy Dolan and Matt Guevara, so be sure to check back again.  I'll get you started here, and you can jump over to Collie's blog to finish it up! Walking onto Geneva College’s campus that day, I had no idea what awaited me during the next four years.  I knew I was wildly excited.  I also knew I … [Read more...]

Win a Ticket to CM Leaders!

Wow, this summer has flown by!  I can't believe it's nearing the end of August already.  September ushers in plenty of excitement to the scene including the start of our homeschooling (preschool) experience, the CM Leaders Conference and the Bloggy Conference!  I am super excited! Even though I've packed two conferences into one month, I anticipate they will be very different experiences.  CM Leaders is all about leadership (something you can never learn too much about!) and will focus on … [Read more...]
