All About Family

There’s something about an 18th birthday – no question its a mile marker, for the parent and the child now turned young adult.  It feels big, and it is.  Eighteen signals a crossing. Kids who hit this marker will be launching soon from the home, will make decisions about their futures and careers, and will [...]

Most seniors headed into their freshman year of college are ready for their independence and new experiences.  As they stretch out toward a new beginning, it is comforting and assuring for them to know that the people back home are thinking of them and praying for them.

Summer comes and we can hardly wait for the lazy days of river floating, picnics in the park, and sleeping under the stars.  Yet, we quickly realize that while these may happen at certain times during June, July, and August, summer is also full of sibling squabbles, too much screen time, and bored children.

There is a picture of my daughter next to an overturned raft, hair plastered over her eyes, mouth wide open, that still makes us laugh.  “I’ve never had a boat flip,” the guide had said.  What makes the story even more interesting is that it wasn’t my husband and I with her in the boat [...]

Around August I start panicking. The fully stocked back-to-school shelves in Target remind me that the close of another summer looms. I spin the rolodex of summer activities in my head – have we done everything the kids wanted to do? What about what I wanted to do? Has it been meaningful? Fun? Have we [...]

Moms – You are the difference-makers. Change agents. Heroes. What you do every day – the hugging, working, teaching, organizing, praying, carpooling, cleaning, playing, laughing, crying, serving, and giving – it changes the world by deeply impacting those right at your kitchen table. We see you. We like you. We know you – because we [...]

My hand rested on her back, and my spirit sank beside her.  My friend staying at our house for the weekend was hurting and there was nothing I could do to take the pain away.  So there we sat, side by side, sharing a broken heart.  Though I tried to encourage, tried to find the [...]
