  • It’s a yummy time of the year! Fresh fruit and veggies everywhere you look, clear until harvest time in the Fall! With all of this fresh produce the question remains, how do we get our kids to EAT those yummy foods?!

  • My sister asked me what sounded fun to me. I looked at her and told I wanted to do adventurous and wild things with friends. And so, we started a ladies-only hiking group and almost a year later, we have over 130 members. Our monthly hikes have been some of my best times with girlfriends. So today, I’m sharing 10 Pacific Northwest hikes you need to go on with your girlfriends.

  1. When We Have Imperfect Mothers

    Ann said "Dear ME, Oh, the secrets we keep behind closed doors. But, she did love you so and was so proud of all your successful ..." Read More
  • Two kids, two adults and one dog live under my roof. That’s eight feet and four paws constantly traipsing in dirt. I feel like a broken record yelling “shoes off” to the kids as they run inside from playing in the yard. Sometimes they get clever and just go outside in socks or barefoot so that they don’t have to take their shoes off when they come in. Does this sound familiar? If so, your carpets probably look like mine did.

  • Could cauliflower really be a believable replacement for crust? I was skeptical. But I was also desperate to eat pizza.

  • I inherited an older relative’s Bible. I was so excited to receive it, but when I opened it the pages were empty. She had not marked any of her favorite passages. I was hugely disappointed. I really wanted to see the Bible through her eyes. I wanted to know her thoughts on what she was reading. That started me thinking. What kind of Bible did I want to pass on to my kids and grandkids someday? Would they, like me, be hugely disappointed to receive a book with pristine pages but no sign of the owner’s love for what they were reading and learning? And, so I began carefully writing short notes on a few pages when something really struck me.

  • One night, everything changed. We decided to put our house up for sale. With a for sale sign in my front yard, I planted my garden anyway. While I put those seeds into the dirt, I felt God speak to me about being faithful in the small. It’s one thing to enjoy gardening for yourself, but can you enjoy it when you’re planting it for another family? In that moment, I decided all I want is to be faithful in the small things. I’ll plant seeds for someone else. I’ll water them, I’ll watch them grow and then we’ll hand over the keys.

  • These days have been about simply survival, with little more than an ounce of effort for what might pass as good parenting. I can’t get anywhere on time, I’ve made excuses as to why I couldn’t keep commitments, my kids are in hopelessly wrinkled clothes, my house is a disaster, I shuffle my kids between family members for last-minute care because I need help keeping my head above water, Conlan’s homework sheets have been completely blank, the TV has been a near-full-time babysitter, I’ve called my husband in tearful hysterics on several occasions, and the kids’ dinners have consisted of frozen pizza or chicken nuggets more often than not. Dear me. This isn’t the mom I want to be.

  • It was my son’s first field trip as a kindergartener and I’d been given the task of keeping tabs on him and another boy while we explored the museum. We spent the morning running from one exhibit to another and as lunch time came for the boys, I slipped into the ladies room.

  • Eat. More. Often. This was the best take-away for me during the 24-day Advocare Challenge. I love working out but I also love food. I will never be interested in trying some fad diet of cabbage or liquid-only meals.

  • My second has been wildly different from my first, but I’ve also been a completely different parent. All of us can look back on seasons of our parenting and identify things we wish we would have done differently. If you had a parenting do-over, what would it be?
