Thou Mayest… Freewill… This brings SO many thoughts and feelings to my mind. My tatoo For a long time now, my youngest sons – twins, Caleb and Aaron – and I have been talking about getting coordinating tattoos. We discussed getting matching tatts, but…

The Process

I’ve been struggling with public education for a couple of decades now.  It happened when I had students that didn’t fit into the “box.”  The struggle was even more powerful when I had children of my own that wanted to fit into that box….

Stop Acting Like Children

I feel this need to clarify my stance on the latest bathroom issue that has so many of us up in arms.

2 Hearts

  I’m at this picturesque coffee house overlooking Lake Austin this afternoon, on the patio.  My Honey is driving the Duck (and will probably float by in about an hour, hopefully giving me a quack and a wave!).  Our kiddos are either at the gym…

Love Covers

  Proverbs 10:12 Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs. I just lean into this on the regular so as not to drown in mommy-guilt. I’ve been giving this parenting thing a bunch of thought lately.  Okay, I’ve been giving it…

Blessed are the Peacemakers

  Matthew 5:9  Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called the children of God. What is a peacemaker?  Some Christians live their lives proudly proclaiming themselves peacemakers.  I think a bunch of us think that peacemakers are the kind, not-judgey, sweet old grandma type…

I’ve been in the desert for about 8 years now… Just before we left Michigan in 2007, our church fell apart in a painful, ugly split, my family of origin began the “dysfunctional disenfranchisement” (as I fondly refer to it), our closest friends seemed to…

Reality of a Girl’s Day at the Spa

My hubby bought me a pretty pricey gift certificate for a posh Austin day spa last year for Mother’s Day.  It advertises as being unpretentious in a very “Austin” fashion.  They carry organic products to boot!  I was ALL IN! Well, you know, until…

Daddy’s Girl

When I was a child, even before starting school, I can remember knowing that I wasn’t someone who people thought of as a nice, polite little girlie-girl.  My mother, on the regular, would bend down next to my ear when I was in “public” …

Step On Up

I remember the first time I met him.  He was all of two years old and the tiniest little replica of his daddy.  It was adoration at first sight for me.  He was a bit of a show off and knew he had his…
