Great news! Super-sale on Sacred Mundane AND …

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 03:15:34 +0000

… The day before Thanksgiving we got to hear the sweetest sound, a sound we’ve longed to hear for such a long time: The sound of our baby’s heartbeat.  Yes, I’m sharing now. It’s still early, and I know it’s not “safe” to share. But if I’ve learned one thing from this life — nothing’s […]

Walking in the Rain

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 01:12:57 +0000

I stood at the window, considering. The kitchen, behind me, was still a mess from the night before. The rain poured against the glass. I was so cold. My soft, cozy chair and quilt called for me, offering their comfort. I considered the evidence, Yeah, maybe I’ll just skip my walk. Stay in. Get the kitchen […]

It is good for me…

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 01:43:33 +0000

Recently, as I drove home from a speaking event, I was worshiping in the car, singing at the top of my lungs, and so clearly in my mind’s eye I saw a picture: It was of Jeff and me. We were standing side-by-side, holding hands, looking ahead, faces resolved. We were covered in soot, ash. […]

No-shame November

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 22:45:41 +0000

I stepped outside for my morning walk and could feel the date … it was now November. Overnight we went from crisp and cool and sunshiny–kids wearing t-shirts jumping in leaf-piles–to damp cold, grey skies–kids inside curled up under quilts. I pulled my bare hands into my sleeves to keep out the cold. Moments earlier, […]

Our Experiment Year: 5 things we’re learning

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 17:17:56 +0000

This year for our homeschool routine I ditched most of what we’d done before, and decided to take an Experiment Year. That is, a year to try new things, refuse to stress, return to JOY, and recover our lost love of learning. By the end of last year I found myself frustrated by our workbook-driven, scope-and-sequence-bound educational existence. […]

The wrong way to do right

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 02:00:26 +0000

This week God used grass seed to get my attention.  See, one of the genius things about Jesus was His ability to teach profound spiritual truth through ordinary examples. Mustard seeds, fig trees, fields, sparrows, weeds, soil … all of these agricultural things (and so much more) were used to illustrate the deeper spiritual realities […]

The fellowship of the broken-hearted

Mon, 09 Oct 2017 03:10:01 +0000

What is wrong with me?? I leaned against the kitchen cabinet, trying to keep the sobs silent. The kids played, oblivious. Jeff worked outside. I just couldn’t stop crying. I tried to text a friend, but a few words in I quit. Too much. Don’t even know where to begin. Another deflating disappointment, another super confusing […]

Considering causes: Seasons, Cultural Regions, and your Unique Position

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 03:01:10 +0000

So, I confess: Sometimes, it seems like every day in America there is another injustice, another controversial issue people are debating about, I start to feel this tinge of panic, feeling like I should know more about this, should have something intelligent to say about this, should have the definitive gospel-view on this, and should have […]

Let nothing detain you…

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 03:15:11 +0000

You just never know what the week ahead will hold. A week ago I wrote that He holds a map we cannot see. I didn’t know, then, just how much of that map was still very much unknown to us. The very next day we heard the tragic news that Jeff’s dear dad had suddenly […]

He holds a map I cannot see.

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 23:43:10 +0000

“Why don’t You ANSWER????” The question erupted, into the silence of my car, where I drove, alone, desperately trying to find the building where the memorial service was about to begin. My precious friend had just buried her son, and I wanted to be there for her, with her, and instead I was lost and […]
