BLOG: Before & after you vote

Trump vs. Biden. Democrats vs. Republicans. We hear these names and terms almost every hour of every day in the news—so much so that we feel like there is almost nothing else happening. Yes, Americans once again are spending an enormous amount of time, money and energy thinking about who will be the next President, along with other offices. And rightly so, as this is an election of enormous consequence. At the same time, I want to...

BLOG: Dirty chickens

I love chickens! As a child growing up, my family didn’t raise them, so I was never exposed to them. However, in 1998, my husband and I decided to raise a few and as they say, the rest is history. Today, having a few token “yard birds” seems to be the trend, and from looking at social media, it appears that they are the perfect solution if you are needing something to care for, knit for, build a playground for or prepare a gourmet...

It was an incredible display of legal knowledge, dignity, humility and composure under pressure. Anybody who watched should be...

BLOG: Instant pot pumpkins and promises

One of the best things about fall is the heaping piles of fresh squash and pumpkins. In my younger days when I was a new wife and homemaker I wasn’t exactly sure how to cook either so I would turn to the canned versions. They were good but I always felt like the fresh ones just had to be better. Right? It seemed like a no-brainer . . . All the bright colors, shapes, sizes and cool names. Surely, with all of that going for them they...

BLOG: Reclaiming your childlike joy

Several times in Scripture we see Jesus use children as an example to what the Kingdom of heaven is like. I love these examples because it reminds me there are no grown-ups in heaven. To be fair, I don’t know what age we will be in the next life. We could look 15 or 50, but the point I think Jesus often illustrates is that there is a certain childlike trust and innocence that are trademarks of His people. I think this means that...
