Leaving a Legacy of Faith

         What is your legacy? A legacy is generally thought of as the gift you leave behind when you’ve left the world behind. Some people associate the word legacy with money or property, but the meaning I’m referring to is the legacy of yourself that you leave for those who will come after you. There’s a song that I really like by Sidewalk Prophets that really sums up the theme of this post. Below are the first few […]

On a Mission

  Today’s post is dedicated to a very special young lady at my church. Tomorrow she will be embarking on a missions journey that will last for at least the next six months. Her name is Rachel and she will be attending a Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Texas facilitated by Youth With A Mission (YWAM).   YWAM holds a special place in my heart because that is where I met my wonderful husband. 🙂 And we are both very […]

At Home on the Range

Several months ago my husband, Scott, purchased a handgun. Since then, he and our two oldest boys have been going once a month with some men from our church to our local gun range for a time of fellowship and target practice. This past weekend Scott asked me to go to the range with him. I reluctantly agreed. You see, ever since he showed me “the weapon”, I have disliked it. I mean don’t get me wrong it’s a super […]

Summer Recap

     I decided to take a break this week from writing about deep subjects and tell you all a little about our summer. It’s been a busy one. We started off with planting a veggie garden and also making a new garden in our front yard, a cottage garden. It has been such a joy to me, and every morning as soon as the sun is up I’m out in my little paradise gathering the seeds from the many exquisite […]

I’ve earned my B.A. at the University of Adversity!

I have gone through some tremendously difficult experiences in my life. My father passed away when I was a young teen, as did three of my grandparents. I’ve had two miscarriages. I’ve faced financial difficulties my entire life. I’ve had the typical relationship troubles experienced by many people.  And I’m currently riding a mid-life emotional roller coaster, a “joy” that I wouldn’t wish upon my worst enemy! 🙂  There are days when I think I can’t take it any more, […]

Why Men Deserve Respect!

    I have noticed a disturbing trend in our society over the past few years, the habit of diminishing and belittling men. In many movies and television programs, men (especially husbands and fathers) are depicted as weak, ineffectual, lazy, cowardly, brainless creatures that are to be despised or ignored rather than respected. This is a grave misrepresentation of the majority of men. When men are belittled and disrespected it throws our entire society into disorder. If the culture they are living […]

Why women need encouragement

  Women take on many roles. I’m sure you’ve heard it said before that women are wives, mothers, chauffeurs, teachers, cheerleaders, nurses, and more. And many women also work outside or inside the home to earn an income. All of this being and doing combine together to bring a weariness that is more than just physical. We can easily become soul-weary and emotionally drained. One of the many roles I perform each day is that of a cheerleader, giving my […]

How do you fit into your Genes?

    What makes you, you? Many factors go into the making of you. There are infinite combinations in your parents’ genetics that combine to make you unique. For example, my husband and I and both sets of grandparents are all right-handed, but 5 of our 8 children are lefties. Some of our children are blue-eyed like their Dad, while others have brown eyes like their Grandpa Noah. Some of my children are talented artists like their Dad, others are more […]
