Daily Routines

Amy / February 12, 2019

Habit of Routines Routines have not been a big part of our lives for a while. Over the past year our family has lived a rather chaotic and busy life. The days were filled with doctor appointments, homeschool assignments and attempts to keep our home in some semblance of order. The past month has been a completely different experience for…

An Interrupted Day

Amy / December 4, 2017

The week of Thanksgiving our family has experienced such an interruption. My day was all planned, we were going to work on some cooking and holiday preparation. Our extended family has been through a lot…

Parenting and Chronic Illness

Living with Chronic illness can really mess up my plans.
Amy / January 13, 2016

My children live with an extra burden in their lives because their mom has a chronic illness. This means that they have to carry some extra responsibility at times simply because I am unable to do something and I need their help. I wish I didn’t have to add this to my children’s lives, but to be honest there is…

Parenting Surprises

Amy / December 17, 2015

I don’t know about your house, but we have a little bit of this attitude, seen here in this picture going on at our house! Our youngest is one that really likes to believe she is in charge of everything. She doesn’t like to sleep, she doesn’t like to share, she doesn’t like it when you tell her to do…

Media Choices

What we view on TV impacts how we think, and if we are not careful we are going to fill our hearts with things we shouldn't.
Amy / July 13, 2015

Keeping up Appearances Some time ago my daughters danced with glee while watching a Barbie movie. I do not like Barbie, and was hesitant about letting them watch the silly thing at all. As I watched them get excited, and dance along with the characters on the screen,  and get anxious and nervous as the tension rose, I was reminded…

When Your Spouse seems Far away

Make allowances for others faults, because the Lord forave you first.
Amy / June 29, 2015

I have been married almost 8 years. In those years there is one thing that keeps happening to me and my husband. We are constantly drifting apart. I remember hearing from christian teachers, pastors and counselors that this is a common problem in marriages and that I should expect it to happen to my marriage. I didn’t really believe it…
