Here’s To A New Tradition

Here’s To A New Tradition

New traditions are fun, aren’t they? I am doing something that I hope is the beginning of a new tradition for Christmas time. When big bro and little bro were smaller, I would wrap up 25 books under the tree and they would take turns choosing and unwrapping one for me to read before bed… Continue Reading

Hanging Out By The River

Hanging Out By The River

John the Baptist’s ministry mostly took place hanging out by the Jordan River and left us a great model as we raise our children and guide their spiritual formation.  John the Baptist was set apart by God from before birth and he lived a life mostly of seclusion and separateness.  Matthew 3 tells us that when he… Continue Reading

God is Amazing

God is Amazing

If there’s one thing that I have learned from my struggles being Bog Bro’s mama, it’s this:  God is Amazing. Hands down, without a doubt amazing.

Behavior Answers …. Again

Behavior Answers …. Again

So things have been turbulent around here and in school with Big Bro.  And his teacher was the final push to finally get us into Dr West’s office. After all the people we have talked with and who have evaluated Big Bro and all the research I have done, I do believe we have found… Continue Reading

We Have Answers!

We Have Answers!

The most amazing thing happened at our last appointment with Big Bro’s counselor.  She told him she needed to talk to mom and he could either pout (because he was mad that he had be there) or he could play with the toys.  Then she proceeded to tell me she had figured out what was… Continue Reading

Hiking By The Lake

Grandma had them looking for things to draw in their journals… Continue Reading
