Cornbread Waffles

Something I’ve discovered on Pinterest is the many uses my waffle iron has.  I had no idea.  I thought I could only use it for waffles.  Silly me…a waffle iron, only for waffles, what was I thinking?  Apparently, it can be used for much more. I’ve used my waffle iron to make cinnamon rolls, biscuits more »

The Ugly Side of Ministry & A Giveaway

So, I spent the weekend with around 850 women.  Bless it.  You can’t imagine all the chatter and giggling, the emotions and the tears.  I spent the weekend at Lifeway’s National Women’s Ministry Leadership Forum.  I’ve got to admit when I step back and consider (850 leaders, that are women, in the same building for more »

Why It’s Godly to Get Away

Jared and I had the fantastic opportunity to get away on Veteran’s Day without kids.  We were only gone about 28 hours, but it was marvelous.  We didn’t go far just about an hour down the road from our home in Huntsville to a secluded cabin at one of our favorite camps.  We had a more »

A Fairy Door

I saw this adorable idea on Pinterest for a Fairy Door.  The purpose of the fairy door is just to add a bit more fun to the Tooth Fairy.  We put the door up shortly after Kati Ann lost her first tooth.  Since then, “the tooth fairy” often leaves the door cracked when he/she comes more »

Don’t forget to be thankful.  We’re not quite a week past Halloween and the stockings are already being hung and the sugarplum fairies are getting excited. Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas.  I enjoy the baking and decorating and the sparkle in my children’s eyes.  However, I’ve noticed some are so anxious to chase more »

My Messy House

It never ends, the laundry, the dishes, the crumbs on the floor.  Of course, it will eventually end when there are no children living in my house, but I have a pretty strong inclination that Jared & I can manage to continue the mess! Some days I feel like the broom never leaves my hand more »

Laundry Detergent

I’m going all Duggar on us.  I’ve made my own laundry detergent now, twice.  Yes, twice.  I love it…it isn’t that hard, for our family it lasts a really long time and it’s inexpensive.  I actually feel like my clothes are cleaner with this detergent.  So, for this Pinterest review, I’m giving a huge thumbs more »

Why It’s Hard to Live in the Moment

I remember growing up, sitting at the dinner table with my brother and my parents, listening to and watching my parents.  They had pencil and paper and were planning, dreaming about the future.  They spoke about things they wanted to save for and projects they wanted to tackle.  My parents would talk about building an more »

The Rooster at Wal-Mart

Disclaimer: I was talking to my neighbor the other day and she asked me where I do my grocery shopping. I sort of hem-hawed around and finally told her that I grocery-shopped a lot of places. She said kiddingly, “So, you’re not really loyal to one store?” I thought about it and realized, I’m not more »
