Not everybody has friends like my friends Joe and Cindi, but everyone would be better off if they did. To set up the reason why, let me take you back to a conversation I overheard a long time ago … Associate Pastor: “What would you say about a Christian who doesn’t have much of a […]

Having a son with special needs and two daughters who developed typically (the jury is still out on this one!) we have plenty of memories of early growing up years of travel and vacations! The honest summary would be this: some travel was not pleasant. Some travel was really hard but we are not going […]

As a former teacher, I learned that any time you have children in the equation, having a contingency plan and intentional response helped navigate the many different moods, feelings and opinions you may encounter about any given situation. As a parent, Summer seemed to be riddled with many opportunities to activate said plan. Here’s how […]

There was always great joy around our home at CHRISTmas. Santa visited us personally every year and the kids loved it!

There really is so much for which to be thankful. But I also admit, there are times when we’ve had times of exhaustion in care-giving; emotional exhaustion and physical demands that led to being drained in all areas including spiritually. We wish we had sure-fire ways of finding answers that work every time to eliminate […]

Thanksgiving, family Matters, Grace Based Parenting

Right out of the gate I think everyone should be comfortable to claim “special needs” when it relates to Halloween! It’s certainly not a “one size fits all” holiday! As our kids were growing up, we really lacked a specific direction we felt we needed to take with Halloween so, we did something different each […]
