New Normal

Is everything in our new normal really new?  Since the pandemic, we are told that life is never going to be the same and admonished to accept a "new normal" that will require many daily adjustments. No doubt we are finding that to be true as we submit to intrusive temperature checks, endless sanitizing, cumbersome [...]

The Truth

One thing I love to do with my daughter, no matter the time of year, is to go outside. Riding bikes, hiking, exploring parts of our wooded neighborhood or just getting our hands dirty in our own yard. Recently, I’ve started to give my daughter, Navy, money for the time she spends pulling weeds. Although [...]

It’s Test Time!

This is finals week for Kentucky schools. However, more than any other year, the 2020 tests are far from "standardized." Nope. This year the exams are being completed at kitchen counters in pajamas OR on family room floors with laptops. From first grade spelling tests to AP College Credit Exams, this season of testing hit [...]

Palm Sunday Parenting

The "triumphal entry" of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday has been a favorite picture of mine since childhood! I loved making construction paper palm branches and waving them high in the air when our Sunday School teacher got to the part of the story where we would shout, "Hosanna! Blessed is He who comes [...]

High-resolution moms

Not sure about you, but by this time in the year, my New Year’s resolutions are already beginning to blur. My clear resolve to not text while driving still remains intact, but I admit that I am already back into the old habit of taking a cell phone call or two (or three) during my [...]

The work of His hands

A powerfully bold brushstroke within the Heart of Womanhood ministry is HOW God has designed us to learn FROM each other. To learn WITH each other. Our creative God knew from the beginning that we are better together. We need each other in order to make disciples who make disciples. Through our Portraits Bible Studies, [...]

Trophy life

What a creative Halloween costume! Our friend began with a can of gold, high-gloss spray paint covering a tennis outfit, tennis shoes, visor, and tennis racquet. Gold skin makeup and gold hairspray completed the winning costume. Her daughter struck a “tennis pose.” Everyone applauded. Like magic, my neighbor had created her own perfect “trophy child.” [...]

Chicken casserole for a mom’s soul

The grandparents would be here in one hour for a family Labor Day dinner. With the beginning of September, my taste buds turned to fall foods despite the outside temperature remaining hotter than my preheating oven. My plan? To serve my mom’s famous Chicken Casserole. So, I prepare the rice, then the broccoli, then the [...]
