When I say “Authentic Leadership Development” I am referring to development of leadership traits within…… Continue reading Authentic Leadership Development
So my husband’s sister-in-law and her four daughters were here with us this last week for five days. And as I spend my first quiet hour since they left sitting here reflecting on their visit, I thought I would share my experience with our NEW Infantino Spueeze Station, which is available on sale here. As…… Continue reading DIY Toddler Squeeze Pouches & Infantino Squeeze Station
These days, my life is mostly mixing bottles, changing diapers and chasing down a one year old. So it is not very surprising that I feel lonely a lot.

What happens when I…? People often judge what will happen when other people do things, but often enough we don’t judge what happens when we take certain actions of our own. I know this from personal experience. There was a time I was dating a guy from another church and so I would always go…… Continue reading Am I questioning my actions before I make them?
Two of my most favorite places to worship this far in my life have been in the pews outside in the forest one summer in Shaver Lake, CA and the other was in the worship center up at Mount Hermon when we were on a college retreat.

I’ve often liked the idea of minimalism, growing up a Christian I was taught we should give A LOT to others whether they need it or not, asking for it or not….
