1) The passing of kidney stones hurts. A lot. As in, the worst pain, hands down, I’ve ever experienced. I never want to go through THAT again! I found myself wishing, at one point, to be delivering a third child than passing that stone. Seriously. 2) I don’t like the epic musical, “My Fair Lady”… Continue reading 5 things I learned in September
I have always loved stories. I want to know the details and to think on the motivations, the “whys” of the story and contemplate. This enjoyment grew in high school when I encountered an outstanding AP English teacher that encouraged me to read wide and deep. Her love for literature fueled my love for literature… Continue reading This Lit Wit’s case for reading widely
It’s been sooo long since I’ve done a Daybook post but I’m going to jump in and do one, clunky and all. There are several versions of an online daybook out there and I’ve mashed up a few prompts that make my heart sing, think and take stock. Here we go! Looking out my window…… Continue reading Taking stock…
It was as though we all got together in the blogging world and decided to quit writing at the same time. I look back to my original blog site on blogger.com and almost all of the links to other blogs I loved following have been arrested in time or have disappeared altogether. At the time,… Continue reading Where have all the words gone?
I was given the opportunity to review the book “I Don’t Get You” by Sherry Graf this past Spring. This was a timely book for my life personally as I help my teen sons navigate the world of opposite sex conversations. “I Don’t Get You” is more than just another book on having conversations with… Continue reading Book Review: I Don’t Get You by Sherry Graf
This book is an excellent resource for those who have teens (or soon will) that face their next chapter of education. Insightful and practical, this book takes some of the overwhelm and pressure off by providing clear thoughts, tips and in a calm voice that is very much like a conversation over coffee, Chediak’s approach,… Continue reading Book review: Preparing Your Teen for College
I’ll be honest, I usually don’t jump at the chance to review Bibles when offered. However, something jumped out at me with this one. I’m a visual person, so perhaps, the word “Illustrated” intrigued me. I love great study Bibles, so perhaps, it was the curiosity of what in depth study info. this Bible contained.… Continue reading Book Review: NLT Illustrated Study Bible
Vince Antonucci’s latest book, “God For The Rest Of Us” is an excellent read! Vince’s heart beats strong for those who are far from God but I believe it also beats strong for those who walk with God. Vince does an excellent job of pointing out how quick the church is to judge and discard… Continue reading Book Review: God For The Rest Of Us
I woke up last Wednesday and greeted my husband with a kiss and “Happy one month Anniversary!”. Yes, we celebrated our one month anniversary on March 18. That day marked time for us – one month to the day since Chris had been laid off from his job. We had mentally been preparing for this… Continue reading One month anniversary…
My family and I returned home yesterday from a week long vacation to the coast. We saw otters and seals playing in the surf at high tide. We saw lovely shells and weather that reached 70 degrees most days. We saw deer and a young buck grazing in people’s yards along the road. We saw… Continue reading I’m back!
