Family gatherings are the best.  Maybe yours are with actual family, or with  friends who are like family.  With our clan, we most often head up to Priest Lake, Idaho, for mountains, s’mores, huckleberry picking, and paddle boarding at sunset on the lake.  Or, in the winter, we dive into knee-deep powder, hot chocolate, and [...]

My sister had warned me about college drop off weekend.  “Be ready. It’s roller-coaster emotional, busy, and it tears your heart to shreds.”  While my sister and I are similar in many ways, I’m the deep feeler of our duo, so if she felt that way, I forecasted double the emotions.  I knew that the college [...]

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. We can do this in many ways, by [...]

“You will be one of those people.” She looked at me with serious eyes. I laughed out loud. “What are you talking about?” “No, really,” she re-iterated. “I think one day you will be one of the people on that stage.”  She motioned for me to come and stand at the foot of the black [...]

“Well, this is it Mom.” Her hair blew her over her face as the warm wind passed over her tanned armed into the car. “The last stretch. Two more months of high school and that’s it.” Immediately my throat tightened and I bit my lower lip. I knew this was coming. Spring break in Costa [...]

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 [...]

  The straps of the backpack clapped together and the familiar “click” signaled that everything was packed.  My son peered out proudly from behind his glasses as he slung the large weight onto his back.  It had finally come. All nine year olds in our family get to go on their first “real” backpacking weekend [...]

I felt sick to my stomach. The TV series had been a fun way for us to connect with our growing teens, but it had turned inappropriate and bizarre. It was supposed to be mild, and I trusted the source from whom it had been recommended. The first shows we watched were fine. But like [...]

Like you, I am a mom trying my best to raise my kids.  As a Christian mom, one of my greatest privileges is exposing them to the love of Jesus.  If they love Jesus, every other detail of their life will fall into place.  It’s the most important work.   So I’m always looking for [...]

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 [...]
