Family Matters, Grace based parenting, life lessons

My brother and sister-in-law live on the farm where my sister-in-law grew up. This year they decided to teach their children, ages 6 and 9 how to raise pigs. Suzy was excited to share this part of her childhood with her children. My family has enjoyed watching the process and laughing as they chase their pigs through the […]

War On Christmas, Family matters, Christmas

Those of us who were raised in the Church know the narrative of Christmas, the story of Christ and his life and ministry forwards and backwards.  It’s often brought up in teachings, studies and sermons that so many of the people who lived in the same day and age as Jesus missed the boat on […]

Grace Based parenting

As my children grew into middle schoolers and gained more freedom and independence I realized that I could never create a “rule” to cover every situation that they would encounter. I also realized that although rules are good to have, they are imposed on us from outside sources. Whether from me, their teachers, their boss, […]

Grace Based Parenting, Family Matters, Sue Birdseye

  Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Proverbs 3:5   It is interesting to me that that verse isn’t “Trust in the Lord with all of your mind.”  Why is that? Why does God say heart? I looked up the meaning of heart in my concordance and it says that God uses […]

One of my favorite shows on television is The E Channel’s era based shows.  I am particularly fond of “Remember The 80’s”; I love this one because I am a product of this Flock of Seagulls hair wearing, parachute pants sporting generation.  I wish I still had those pants, my kids would love them! My […]

  I’ve wanted to write for days…well, probably weeks, but life keeps getting in the way.  I wanted to be in a better place before I shared.   I wanted my blog to have a title like, “5 Steps to Parenting Perfection” or “No Regret Parenting” or “I Figured It Out!!!” But alas, I don’t have […]

Joy Cherrick, sacrifice, prayer

  If there is one thing that is hard in the Christian life, it is the surrender. Giving Christ the control over each and every aspect of my body and life is my greatest joy and my greatest battle.   When I gave my life to Jesus as a young woman, I had already tried […]

  Several years ago if you’d asked me what passage in the Bible most spoke to me, I’d have said Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will […]

He’ll paddle for several miles, get out and haul the canoe to another lake, and […]
