Who's Voice Are They Listening To?

Whose Voice Are They Listening To?

If you’ve ever worked for a church, you’ll understand that it comes with it’s own unique set of pros and cons. I work for my church in New Jersey, and since I began about 5 months ago, I’m thankful to say I’ve seen more of the upside than the down. One of my favorite things […] Read more…

Get Them Talking...

How To Get Them Talking…

Do you remember when you were a kid and your mom or dad would ask you the same question every day when you came in the door? “How was school?” they would ask, to which you would reply, “Fine.” “What did you learn?” “Nothing really.” End conversation.

Kintsukuroi – A New Year’s Resolution

It’s a new year. And of course, that means the dreaded ‘R’ word…. Resolutions. I usually don’t make them. Because the feeling of failure when I can’t fulfill them is too painful on my self-esteem.

I’m a prime subject for a “Nailed It” Pinterest post! […] Read more…

Why We Believe In Santa Claus

Why We Believe in Santa Claus

The Holiday Season is upon us, and inevitably, because I call myself a Christian, I will have to defend some of my ‘bold’ worldly choices. For example, I often say, “Holidays” and not, “Christmas.” (Insert audible gasp from the right!) I am all superficial about decorating and insist on (what I consider to be) a […] Read more…

10 Reasons Why Public Schools Are Awesome

10 Reasons Why Public Schools are Awesome

I’m a homeschooling parent so I belong to quite a few homeschooling groups on social media. I used to love seeing what other families were up to and asking my questions, but lately, these feeds are regularly inundated with news stories about public schools, and quippy little statuses about how awesome¬†‘we’ are for homeschooling. I’ve […] Read more…

It's A New Day

It’s A New Day

I begrudgingly set my alarm last night for 6am this morning. ‘I have no where to be,’ I thought, as I contemplated sleeping in. But as I opened my eyes this morning, the low hum of my alarm mingling with the outskirts of my dreams, I allowed a moment of gratitude to wash over me. […] Read more…
