Roots of Faith

When my son was in Kindergarten, we had his eyes tested and the results showed a severe stigmatism and near sightedness.  He was only seeing 10 inches in front of his face.  Beyond that it was all a blur.  No wonder we couldn’t get him to ride a bike – he couldn’t even see his [...]

I will be praying for you until we talk. The words jumped off the page as I read them on the message thread.   Why is she going to pray for me? I thought. Sure, it was very kind, but there was something deep inside of me that knew it was more than simply a [...]

I’m not sure what age I was when the question first came to me, but I remember asking it as I sat and stared at an image of a little girl with a mud-caked face dressed in rags, holding her little brother, who was equally dirty, “Why wasn’t that me born there?” The question hung [...]

I’ve always been a mover and a shaker. Standing still is not my gift. I get things done. And there is always something to be done. When someone tells me they are bored, I wrinkle my forehead and stand in amazement, because I don’t think I’ve been bored one second in my life. It’s just [...]

The powder was deep and the snow light.  My dad grew up ski racing in leather boots with wooden boards.  His perfect S- turns reflected his history.  Though older, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t ski well.  My mom followed him down the double black diamond, as she always did.  Mom didn’t start skiing until she [...]

This prayer is taken from Chicken Soup for the Couple’s Soul.  I loved it so much I made a printable to keep in our bedroom.

“I want to ski race,” I blurted out suddenly. My parents looked at one another, then at me. The problem did not rest on my ability to ski, but with my age.  By 8th grade most kids were cresting prime racing form, and I would be just starting.  Typical of my parents, a yes flew [...]

There was a time when my youngest son couldn’t see beyond 10 inches in front of his face. Day after day we would practice flash cards. I would hold up “F,” he would tell me it was an “A.” I would hold up “D-D-D dinosaur” he would say, “O-O-O octopus.” The more we practiced, the more he guessed.
