Dear Friends & Family, 

Welp, it’s been a year. Let the sarcasm and sass commence… (consider yourself warned).

We got one graduated in June by the skin of our teeth. As an educator, I feel both victory and defeat. Certainly God was kidding when He gave me 3 boys who don’...

That day of his birth was full of surprises. The first being his grand entrance via C-section. That kid was not interested in evacuating the premises and was forced out 10 days past his due date. He owed back rent for sure. Secondly, he was a boy, but I had been certai...

So this happened 18 years ago today: My oldest son was born. Excuse me while I go and cry in the corner about how it went way too fast and how I didn’t believe my mother-in-law when she said you blink and they’re in college and how I can’t stand that my mother job has...

A college friend was killed Monday, says Facebook, but my brain can’t process this. I read about the accident and think it can’t be. Death is unprocessable. Unfathomable. It slams down like thick darkness, and paralysis holds firm. I'm stopped; stuck; stunned.

My colleg...

This is an article I wrote for a church planting newsletter. Wanted to share with you all to give you a peek into our world as church planters...

We church planter’s wives are an interesting breed, aren’t we? First of all, what other profession identifies the wife by he...

I’m currently into animated movies, not by choice. The tiny human at home loves them.

A favorite is Despicable Me. Even the title tells you this guy’s a loser. Gru is grumpy and mean and pops balloons of little kids and laughs. He’s selfish and doesn’t care about anyone...

Why is writing so hard? I mean, for the love! Seriously! What is wrong with me? I thought I loved writing, or is it, I love to have written? Starting is the worst. I should have been writing for an hour now, and here’s what I did instead: cleaned out my purse and resto...
