Let’s All Agree To Give Fear The Boot, Okay

It’s that time of year again…Halloween. To be honest, our family kind of lives under a rock when it comes to this holiday – we rarely dress the kids up, and if we do, we head to a church or school harvest party instead of trick or treating. I don’t have any major issues with trick or treating or dressing … Read More

Awake O Sleeper

Oh my friends, the truth is: I’m tired. Something about this last week of gray days and my ever graying hair has kept me feeling a bit low. This whole up all night/up all day scenario is hard! At the same time though, I can think back instantly to two separate times when my babies were in the NICU and … Read More

Yesterday while I was rocking Torrey, my eyes drifted to Alana’s bookshelf. It’s a chintzy three tier shelf that we got at Ross when Stu and I were first married. We keep joking that one day we are just going to come home and find that poor sucka has given out crumbled on the ground with books flung left and … Read More

So, my husband just got back this Saturday from a two week whirl-wind trip to Taiwan for his best friend’s wedding. I was here keeping the home fires burning and let’s be clear what that means.

As in, I love to eat out, but that is definitely not always in our … Read More

So this is the post in which I discuss time management, Or in my, case, the LACK of time management abilities I apparently took on as a skill set sometime between starting college and age 30. And in the spirit of cutting myself a wee bit of slack, I will say that in the last decade or so there have been … Read More

From House To Home – A Search For Peace Amid The Crazy

OnlyTrueNorthInsights, Jennah3 Comments

Lately my prayers have sounded a lot like this: “Lord, I don’t know what to do.”   Super spiritual, I know. Some days I get up and look around me and instead of feeling grateful and blessed I feel let down by my family and overwhelmed by all the stuff I see and feel. Messes everywhere, Relationships on edge. Emotions … Read More

Living In The Trees

How many of you believe you are made for something bigger? That you are destined to change the world, if even in a seemingly small way? If you don’t feel that way, you should. Because you are created for greatness.   We all are. But here’s the thing…before we can spread wide and high like God has planned for us, we must … Read More
