Father, May I?

Remember the childhood game of Mother, may I? It’s an activity where one child plays “Mother” while all the other children position themselves on the opposite side of the room or yard. Each playmate takes turns asking “Mother, may I take three large hops?” OR “Mother, may I take five giant steps?” etc. With each [...]

I was 35,000 feet up in the air when it happened the first time. While flying to speak at a church my gaze shifted from the clouds around the aircraft to the open Bible in my lap. As I began to review the passage for the “Chalk Talk” that night, I noticed that God’s Word [...]

I know that the hours before us will be filled with chaos and craziness, with the hard and the hilarious, with stressing and with blessing. But I look forward to the third Saturday morning in April every year. A team of volunteers from across the city combine forces in the pre-dawn hours to prepare for [...]

Years ago, for a splash of pizazz, I added a black chalkboard paint border close to the ceiling in our Kentucky kitchen. On this border encircling our hub of family activity, my husband suggested that we write each family member’s name, birthdate, and favorite Bible verse. That night at the dinner table we asked our [...]

Happy Heart Day

I’ve always had a heart for Valentine’s Day! I remember with a big smile the excitement building the week leading up to February 14th each year. Afternoons were filled with Valentine preparation. First there was the official Valentine BOX. Before gift bags, back in my elementary era, shoeboxes with a hole cut in the top [...]

Are you a Christmas card person?

The Wiggintons are Christmas card people. We like to send Christmas cards. We like to receive Christmas cards. We’ve always been Christmas card people. When I said “I Do” to my husband in 1985, I said “I do” to many things! One desire my husband made perfectly clear during our engagement was that he’d like [...]

As with most new moms, when our first baby was born, I knew that one my jobs was to teach her good manners. You know the “please and thank you’s” and the “yes ma’ams and yes sirs.” Since hand coordination develops before verbal communication, way back in the 90’s the newest parenting thing was to [...]

Becoming a Barista Mom

Wednesday mornings are wonderful. It’s my weekly coffee date with Papa. Our family’s golden doodle (named “Sport”) excitedly joins us as we walk to our local Starbucks for an hour of good coffee and good conversation. Each time we open the door to our neighborhood coffee shop, the fresh ground scent reminds us that somethin’ [...]
