Earlier this spring, I took my daughters to see a ballet of C.S Lewis’s Screwtape Letters. I knew it was a complicated story for children, so, on the way home, I began to ask them what they thought of the story. One of my daughters asked this question, “Mom, why didn’t the good angels just […]

Want to be Spiritually Refreshed? Create a Spiritual Health Spa in Your Own Home!

When I lived in Southern California, I enjoyed visiting a lusciously landscaped outdoor health spa. I only visited it in the summer when the plants were at their peak of their beauty and the gentle sunshine created the perfect climatic conditions. I always returned home refreshed and revitalized. Though I recall with joy those few […]

Scooter is our family dog. He is an eight-pound, very fluffy Pomeranian. Scooter is not good at anything other than looking really cute. On our walks at the park we are often stopped by others asking to touch his fur. He even attracted the eye of a news cameraman once and made the evening news […]

More Musical Musings: When It’s Not Your Fault

By on March 12, 2015 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

Last time I posted, I wrote about the Into to the Woods song, “So It’s Your Fault!” addressing the need of our generation to accept responsibility for our actions instead of shifting the blame. (Click here to read it.) In the song, multiple characters try to shift the blame of the day’s events to someone else, […]

I went to see Into the Woods, the latest movie-musical to hit the big screen. In case you haven’t seen it, the story is divided into two parts. The first part is the happily ever after of all the whimsical fairy tales. Everyone celebrates the fact that they got their wish, ignoring the bad choices they […]

One of my goals this year is to read the Bible from beginning to end in 2015. Maybe you have that same goal. Whether or not, I do pray that one of your goals is to fall in love with God’s Word more than you have before, for there is nothing more satisfying and life […]

Several months ago, a friend asked me to speak to our local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. My initial reaction was an enthusiastic, “YES!” Then, I asked her the topic. I became less enthusiastic when I realized she wanted me to speak on rest and how to experience rest in the midst of everyday life. […]

Shining Like Stars

“Mommy, I don’t want to take a nap. I don’t want to eat lunch. I want chocolate milk (said in a whining voice). I want to go inside because it’s too hot.” These are just a few examples of the daily grumbles I hear from my two girls. In the midst of the complaining, you […]

I Want to Be Great!

By on September 16, 2014 in Christian Life with 0 Comments

It’s the blessing and curse of our generation. We’ve grown up with grand dreams and been taught that we can do anything. We plan and toil and hope and dream and sweat and bleed because we want to be great. We want to be remembered. We want to know that our time here has made […]
