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. In [...]

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 [...]

IT’S ALMOST HERE!!!!  Three weeks from now my new book, Reclaiming Home, will be arriving in book stores.

Here is an article I wrote for the fall issue of MomSense Magazine (a publication of MOPS International). The chair creaked as I sat in my child’s desk, withholding the urge to organize the chaos of crayons, pencils, [...]

     Moment upon moment upon moment.  These make up what we call “time.”  Every day, I try to do something to connect with each of my children, either individually or as a group.  These sometimes small, and sometimes big, moments make a difference.  Reading together aloud has proven to be one the most consistent [...]

This summer we were ON THE MOVE! Whether we were camping in the woods, going to the lake for the weekend, visiting grandparents, or headed to summer camp, bags needed to be packed with essential supplies for each outing. In years past, I’ve been exhausted just trying to get everything packed and re-packed for each [...]

There have been moments in motherhood that feel so sacred to me that I can hardly breathe. They come unexpected, and often in the ordinary moments of the day. Tears usually run down my face, but I try to hold them back, for fear that they will get in the way of the gift. Tonight [...]

I once read that the only people who know you your whole life long are your siblings and your cousins. They are there from the beginning, knowing all of the childhood history that even a spouse likely doesn’t know. Cousins are special — no doubt about it. Nurturing those relationships strengthens family identity and gives [...]
