We had a blessed Easter with family and friends celebrating our Risen Lord. It was such a treat to have ALL our kiddos home and even a few extra. The pic above of our table shows the calm before the storm. I think this is the first year I actually gave in and used paper and plastic plates. GASP!!! I know… I couldn’t believe it either. But as I was setting up the table Saturday night I didn’t want to spend my time on Easter hand washing all those china dishes. It’s okay to take a break some years and as our family continues to grow and move out our time with all of them here together is priceless. Continue reading

I’ve always been a note taker. There’s just something about having a pen or pencil in my hand and recording what I hear or experience that just brings things alive for me. I have notebooks and journals full of hand scribbled notes, ideas, and doodles. It’s fun to see that a couple of my kids are drawn to the same creative process and desire.
Although I’ve always taken notes during church sermons and Bible studies but I’ve not really journaled onto the pages of my Bible other than the typical underlining and a few quick notes in the margin. I had always saved my thoughts for recording in a separate notebook or journal. But thanks to fellow artist Stephanie Ackerman I’ve been introduced to a whole new world of actually doing creative journaling IN my Bible. My favorite new group on Facebook is the Journaling Bible Community organized by artist Shanna Noel. It has changed the way I come to God’s Word each day. Continue reading
Have you ever had a dream or desire that started as a quiet whisper in your heart?
For me it was a whisper that started out so subtle that for days, weeks or maybe even years it was drowned out or pushed aside as I moved through life’s daily tasks.
I even began to wonderful if I ever heard anything at all.
A few years ago I found myself going through life unable to see clearly. I was blindly operating on “auto-pilot”. When asked how I was doing I would even catch myself saying, “I’m surviving” or “Just trying to get through this day”. I had gotten trapped behind negative self talk and even started to believe this was as good as it was gonna get. Have you ever found yourself there? Continue reading
