What’s A Big Deal?

Today is National Teacher Day! Imagine that, on the Tuesday before Mother’s Day we celebrate teachers; and who is the very first teacher of every person who ever lived? Mom!

Since the one who teaches always learns the most, it seems fitting to share a bit of what I have learned through motherhood. These are lessons I might not have learned in any other way, because if there was a better way to learn them, God just might not have seen fit to give me children.

 Training Trumps Teaching

In every interaction, in every conversation, in every social media post or like, someone is training someone.

Who is training you? What are they training you to do or think? How are they training you to behave? And in what ways are you training other people?

Finding My Way Around

post251pic1This is ridiculously embarrassing, but last week (after living in Texas for over two years) I got lost coming home from Target! I made one wrong turn and I had no idea where I was. It’s not like I haven’t been to Target a few times since moving here, it’s that I don’t keep reading here

Taking Risks

post244pic1It is a new year, barely beyond the middle of January and I suspect most of your resolutions (like mine if I made them anymore!) have faded into history. How’s that new diet? New reading plan? New devotional plan? Exercising every day? Anger issue abating? Self-improvement plan on schedule? Spending quality and quantity time with God? With your family?

Getting to Know Daddy

post242pic1This precious little girl has known her daddy since she was born. In her brief life (less than seven months), she has learned a lot about this man whom she adores.

She has learned that he is trustworthy. He always holds her up when she tries to stand. He carries her wherever he wants her to go. He shows her new and exciting things. He always comes home. She knows she is safe with him.

This is the man of her dreams. In the next few years, she continue reading here
