My Full Cup


A number of years ago…actually it’s probably about 3 decades (which, I guess is a number of years) I was a summer Missionary through Child Evangelism Fellowship’s Christian Youth In Action. I had training and then went out each summer in my own town and taught children about Jesus.

Life has come full circle, now it’s my daughter who is going through the training and will be a summer missionary.…

Yes, this is another post about sending love through the United States Postal Service. You see in the past couple of weeks, maybe even just last week, I have no ideas really, I was studiously doing my Bible study homework.

Because you that’s how I roll…

One of the exercises was to think back on our life, divide it in quarters, (mine was easy…every 11 years) and write how we saw God working and…

Gluten Free, Sugar Free Cookies

Gluten Free, Sugar Free Cookies

These cookies are not free of taste at all. They are delicious!!!! And so very, very simple. From the first time I made them I had the recipe memorized. Just four simple ingredients. And they make up so fast…

Of course they also disappear just as fast.  You won’t be able to stop yourself from grabbing one every time you walk past the cookie jar. Or if you’re like me, they never make it to the…

A Godward Heart {A Review}

A Godward Heart {A Review}

(Now, I told you yesterday I was behind on reviews….)

More and more I want to have a GodWard Heart. A heart that truly seeks after Him, that wants to know Him, really know Him for who He is. To know His heart. In that vein I read like a starving man. One of the books I picked up in this journey to knowing, serving and loving the God of the Bible is A GodWard Heart by John Piper.

Normally he is…

Twirl {A Review}

When I was around 2 years old my older sister learned to twirl around in a circle until she got dizzy. I, as the younger sister, thought anything she could do, I could do…better, and so I proceeded to twirl around and fall down. Only I failed to wait for the dizzy part. I would do a half twirl and sit down.  I’ve been twirling through life ever since.

Patsy Clairmont urges us all to twirl through…

The Devil Walks in Mattingly {A Review}

The Devil Walks in Mattingly {A Review}

The Devil Walks in Mattingly is written by Billy Coffey, which to me sounds like it could be pronounced Coffee which I like very very much. But really I don’t know how to say the last name. Don’t ask. If you do ask I’ll giggle and say, “Coffee”.

I don’t think I’ve ever had quite so much fun with an author’s last name before. (Mr. Coffey, if you read this, please do not take offense. Apparently I…

The Thief {A Review}

The Thief {A Review}

(If you’re looking for a normally witty, or thought-provoking post…those will come, I’m behind on reviews….)

The Thief by Stephanie Landsem is a Biblical fiction novel set in Jerusalem during the last week of  Jesus life on earth.

Mouse has a secret. A big secret. And it’s more than just being a pick-pocket in Jerusalem.  It’s not really what you might think.  Mouse’s family is a little more…

(Before I get started, I have a confession…in my post yesterday, I did have a few one-word helps. But today I said it to my girls completely from memory and even wrote it out, longhand, from memory. I think I deserve a reward.)

With the advent of email, snail mail, except for bills and junk, has gone the way of the dinosaur. Or so it seems. I remember being a child (lo, those many, many years…

From Memory

James a slave of God and of our Lord Jesus Christ: To the 12 tribes in the dispersion. Greetings.

Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials. Knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing.

Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all…

This is where I write a witty, silly blog post about absolutely nothing.

Unfortunately, this is when I am up to my eyeballs in algebra, percentages, fractions, and all manner of all things math.

Here is where I pull my hair out by the roots. Which are getting whiter every day.

Is whiter even a real word? I mean you have white, the absence of all color, if you have no color can you possibly…
