I am sooooooo guilty of always saying "Man! I'd sure like to do blah-blah-blah...but I just don't have the time!" I don't know how Suzy Sewmaker has time to make her own curtains. I wish I had the time to bike 2 hours a day! Read a whole book in two days?! What a pipe dream! Only people with extra free time do that. She makes all her own bread - I just don't have time for that. A manicure?! Dude - ain't nobody got time for that. I can't even get my nails clipped! … [Read more...]

I'm not perfect. I mess up approximately 400 times a day...at a minimum. The difference between me and most people is that I've chosen to put our lives out there for others to see and scrutinize (because we feel this blog is a ministry). Sometimes that leaves me open and vulnerable to criticism - some helpful, some not. People feel openly free to let me know where I'm lacking and what I've said wrong to offend them. But guess what? I already know that. Because I'm not perfect. I never … [Read more...]

I'm quite sure I get labeled as a "snob" on regular occasion. How do I know this? I've been told - "Gosh! I used to think you were a total snob!" True story...over and over. I'm an introvert...maybe to the extreme. I'm sure other people see me as "snooty," "stuck-up," or "too-good." But really, the truth is....I feel so socially awkward that I just cannot be a socialite, no matter how hard I try. If you've ever met me in person or seen me in public, you can vouch for this...I'm a … [Read more...]

Post by Contributing Author, Vanessa from Bible Beer and Babies Before I had kids, I had not one empathetic bone in my body for the frazzled mom struggling to get anywhere on time. I naively thought, "how hard can it possibly be? You just have to grab an extra bag and the kid(s) and voila!" Bahahahahaha. Yeah. If ever I wanted to smack my past self upside the head, it'd be for that thinking right there -- the thought that these rude moms always showing up late and then daring to complain … [Read more...]

There are no more toys in our kids' bedrooms. There are no more toys in the kitchen. There are no more toys in the living room. They have migrated on the winds of the Northern Wind called Mommy. Our toys have been relocated to one central location - the new "play room" in our basement/den area. One spot - not spread all over the house. It's amazing, I'll tell you. I was inspired by Large Family Logistics and Large Families on Purpose that bedrooms should be for sleeping and privacy. When I … [Read more...]
