Recently I read a book which I would love to recommend to all of you. It's called Under the Overpass, by Mike Yankoski. Without further ado, let me give you a little synopsis of what this book is about, and then I'll tell you why I think you should read it this summer. This book is … Continue reading Book Recommendation: Under the Overpass
It's almost summer (for real this time), and that means---drum-roll please--- it's time to make a summer bucket list! I have never actually done this before this summer... but, since I've read about it on blogs, and some of my close friends are doing it, I thought I would give it a try. And I … Continue reading Make a Summer Bucket List!
If you've read my previous post, and the one a few weeks before that one, you already know that I have been having "tonsil issues" for the past few months. And now, as of last Tuesday, my tonsils are no more. Yay! But in this post, I'm going to give some lovely little tips for … Continue reading 9 Things You Need to Know Before You Get Your Tonsils Out
A few weeks ago, I wrote this post about how I was told I needed a tonsillectomy (which, in case you don't know, just means getting my tonsils out 🙂 ). I would encourage you to go back and read that post if you haven't already, but if not, I'll summarize it quickly. Within about … Continue reading My Tonsillectomy Story
It's the beginning of June, which---to me---always seem to signal the beginning of summer. And so begins my first summer post. It was the last day of class at my homeschool co-op. My teacher has us go around and say what we had planned for the summer. One kid's answer was, "Nothing much." My teacher … Continue reading Permission to Rest
I'm going to introduce a new feature on the blog, called the monthly round-up, in which I will share articles, videos, recipes, etc., that have blessed me or made me laugh in the past month. I'll start small... but as the weeks march on, I hope to collect more and more things to share with everyone. Enjoy! … Continue reading Monthly Round-Up — May Edition
Have you ever suffered from "I'm-a-failure syndrome"? I do. I know the symptoms well: everything makes me feel like a failure. This is how my thought process ends up going--- I lost patience with my younger sibling. I must be a failure. My room is a mess. I must be a failure. I can never … Continue reading I’m-a-Failure Syndrome
On the heels of my last series about lies (read those here, here, and here), replacing lies with truth has been fresh in my mind. And I began to realize that there's a lie I've been buying into recently. A few weeks ago, I would find myself saying or thinking things that seemed to indicate my … Continue reading Another Lie— Is God Good?
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a mother. When I was six, my sister and I used to fight over who got to be Addie's (our baby sister's) "mommy" that day. When I was ten, two brand new babies entered the family... and it was wonderful to get the experience … Continue reading Motherhood– Worth It
I mentioned at the end of my last post that I had a "busy weekend." Well, it may have been a little more than just busy. On April 29-30, my mom, sister and I attended a homeschool conference---but it was so rich and so encouraging that (even though I personally don't homeschool any kids) I got so much out of it. (I'm … Continue reading A Sore Throat, an ER Visit, and a Really Awesome God
