The sun was low in the sky as my son and I made the early morning drive to our appointment. He was already grouchy from having to be up “so early,” (poor, spoiled homeschooler!) so he lowered the visor to block the bright light, hoping to catch a few more zzzz’s during our half-hour commute. … More Who Moved?
Boy, is this ever a big topic. So many books and blogs claim to have the answer but, when all is said and done, we still end up empty and searching. Advice ranges from getting a manicure to “washing your face.” (Yeah, I went there.) I, I, I, me, me, me…we fight for peace and … More How to be True to Yourself
What is the best way to learn to swim in the ocean? I would venture to say that the toddler pool would not be very helpful. Even going as far as the adult pool, maybe the 8-12 foot deep end, would not be enough. Why? Well, for one thing the ocean is vastly deep and … More Into the Deep

Playdates at the park or story times at the library are the perfect conditions for forming friendships around the common experience … More If You Lack a Mentor: In Gratitude to Sally Clarkson
I’m sure you have heard by now that Billy Graham went home on February 21st. And I’m sure you have heard the name of Jesus thrown about more…and more positively…on all the media outlets than has been heard in years. Now, I don’t watch as much news as I used to.
