From House To Home – Taking Back Mealtime

OnlyTrueNorthFamily Life, Insights, Jennah2 Comments

You guys. I am the worst meal planner in the history of meal planners. Books could be written on my failure to follow through on carefully crafted monthly meal plans…probably due in large part to the fact that I LOVE eating…when someone else is cooking. As in, I love to eat out, but that is definitely not always in our … Read More

OnlyTrueNorthFamily Life, Insights, Jennah2 Comments

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

Sometimes Done is Better Than Perfect (Especially when your kids are throwing up…I’m just saying…)

OnlyTrueNorthFamily Life, Inspirations, Jennah3 Comments

If you are like me, you probably have a certain way of doing most everything. You put away your towels with the fold facing out; you line up items in your pantry by height and label color; you use bleach for everything. Whatever it is, you have your routine or plan for doing things. This is normal. What is not … Read More

Ok moms – I can’t be the only one that ADORES those baby pictures of my kids where their little eyes shine so brightly. You know the ones I mean.

I saw this short video by Jen Hatmaker over the weekend, and whoah, mommas (and dads) this is a killer video. She says things like: “If God reigns in my kids’ hearts, I need to worry about nothing else…not their careers, not who they’ll marry…” And she drops gems like: “Our goal should be to show our kids a Jesus … Read More

What Heights of Love, What Depths of Peace

OnlyTrueNorthInspirations, Jennah2 Comments

Recently I have been listening to a fantastic group called King’s Kaleidoscope. They. Are. Awesome. They have many songs, but my favorite album right now is “Asaph’s Arrows.” It is chock full of old hymns beautifully and powerfully redone…if you haven’t heard this band, get thee to your computer and LISTEN! Anyway, one of the songs I have been listening … Read More
