Archer is one of three DreamTreaders. He often battles the Nightmare Lord, sometimes with good results, sometimes with not so good outcomes.

Urban Watercolor Sketching

My youngest child has quite the artistic flair.  I’ve posted some pictures of her artwork and she continues to work at it and improve.

Most of what she does is  pencil sketching. I wanted her to branch out a bit and try new mediums, so I requested Urban WaterColor Sketching to review through Blogging For Books.  When the book arrived, she immediately took it from me and I’ve only been able to…

Sadie’s Stitching

Sadie’s Stitching

I’m having a love affair.

It’s true, and I’m freely admitting it here for all the world to see.

I am in love with….

slippers.

Yes, slippers. Okay really all-things pajama, but especially slippers.

Slippers are the one “shoe” I can wear that covers my feet in the summer without my toes complaining, longing to breathe free.  It’s like they know it’s summer and summer means slip-slops…or flip-flops…

a beautiful defeat by Kevin Malarkey {A Review}

a beautiful defeat by Kevin Malarkey {A Review}

I’m not going to lie, sometimes books scare me.  I am finding I have little or no patience with books I don’t agree with; those books that are written more to make one feel good than to make one see the need for a Savior and change. Those books that say, “God is a God of love and He loves you just the way you are. You have no need to change anything about you. You’re perfect just as you are. God…

NIV Pink Bible {A Review}

NIV Pink Bible {A Review}

This is a great Bible!!!  I am not a fan of the color pink, but this is gorgeous. And if you’ve been reading my blog for very long you know my girls have a habit of taking my books. This one will remain mine.

This is not a study Bible, doesn’t have  center-column references, or study notes on the bottom. This is a Bible you get to study and learn all on your own.

Zondervan did a masterful job…

Knitting Reimagined {A Review}

Knitting Reimagined {A Review}

IMG_20140814_161826Two years ago a friend taught my oldest to knit. Well that’s not entirely true. F turned A into a lean, mean knitting machine. She can knit and do anything under the sun. Well, that’s not entirely true either. She can’t knit and wash dishes, or knit and take a shower yet. But I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before she figures out how to do that.

I know how to knit. I knit. But it’s not my…

The Next Step

I feel a bit remiss after my blog post earlier. I find I left out a few very  important pieces.

Grace Grace, God’s Grace

I have heard from some women who have been where I was, and like me they weathered through it.  I know this is a prevalent issue, the women I heard from, like me, made the right choice.  But I am not ignorant enough to think every woman makes that choice.  There are those who…

Just 10 Minutes

The day was sunny and full of whatever I filled it with having an infant and almost 3-year old.  I don’t remember exactly how we spent our morning, I do remember longing for naptime to come quickly.

And by quickly I mean like yesterday quick.

The infant and I had not gotten off to the best of starts. First, I wasn’t entirely sure I wanted another baby, but Mr. FullCup is a man of action, not…

Bullies

Bullies http://wp.me/s16WfZ-bullies

found at http://www.change.org

I used to think bullies were those little boys in elementary school who threatened you with a knuckle sandwich if you didn’t hand over your lunch money.  Or if you didn’t do their homework. Or they would trip you in the hallway just to see you fall, so they could point at you and laugh.

I was never asked or told to do anyone’s homework except my own (and I was…

It’s pouring.

It’s pouring.

You know the saying, “When it rains, it pours.” Well I’m changing that to say, “It never rains unless it pours.” This summer has been one big, huge pouring rainstorm. Or that is how it appears to me.

May 1, Mr. FullCup’s step-mom had a stroke. She was already battling bone and liver cancer. Early June we were told 1-6 months. My girls sobbed.  The older one said, “We’ve been through this before.…
