My Dad Wasn’t Perfect

It has been brought to my attention that I seem to have elevated my father to sainthood since his death almost thirteen years ago. Dad was actually elevated to the status of a saint when he trusted in Christ alone to save his soul, sometime in the ’70s. Psalm 116:15 says “Precious in the sight… Continue reading My Dad Wasn’t Perfect

Fun Fridays with Mom

We, like most people, live busy lives. As a homeschooling mom, you would probably assume that I spend a lot of time with my children. I do, but it’s always time-with-a-purpose. I’m teaching them school, or how to do a chore, or talking to them about the upcoming activities, or correcting them. I rarely spend… Continue reading Fun Fridays with Mom

Happy Birthday to My Leslie

Today my sweet Leslie Anne turns eleven years old! I just wanted to write and share a few thoughts about her. She is stubborn (like her mother), but that also means she is determined.

I “caught” Matthew getting his own cup from the cabinet in a way that would not require his climbing on anything. I thought it was pretty creative. It was taken on May 19, 2015, when he was just four… Continue reading Matt Gets His Own Cup

On Monday, Matt came down with a terrible stomach virus. It took him a full two days to get over it. Tuesday, Leslie and Laci had milder versions of it.… Continue reading A Rough Week


A Conference in Kansas City

A few weeks ago, my family and I were able to attend a preaching conference at Victory Baptist Church in Kansas City, Missouri.The theme of that conference was “The Work of Christ”.

Week Two is Finally Through

We began the week with a great shock. Last Sunday, the Labor Commissioner for Oklahoma, Mark Costello, was tragically murdered by his son, Christian. He was stabbed to death at a Braum’s restaurant in Oklahoma City. We didn’t know Mr. Costello, but we know some people who were close to him. They have had only… Continue reading Week Two is Finally Through
