I decided to blog because I have a lot on my mind ... much about theology, practice, women, relationships and family. This is a place where we'll talk about all of these things. Nothing is off-limits. Hopefully, somehow in the journey, we'll find ourselves going deeper, and having a richer life with each other and Jesus.   

  • How Do You Talk to Little Girls? Recently I read this article on how we talk to little girls. The woman makes a much need point.

  • They Are Together

    I cried at their text.    This picture is a far cry from all the times Steve and I were called home from work to referee their sibling brawls. Like the time Steve was called out of an elder meeting and I had to leave my teaching at a woman's bible study.

  • It's Dangerous To Be A Woman Today

    It’s dangerous to be a woman in the world today I used to think the “women’s issue” was a cause people took up much like saving the whales or joining MADD.

  • She Ducked

    "The last word: He said he was leaving. She ignored him.When Laura Munson's husband asked for a divorce, she ducked instead of fighting. He needed to learn, she says, that his unhappiness wasn’t really about her." An interesting read on how one woman handled her husband's midlife crisis.
