Modesty for Mom

Yesterday I was having a conversation with Shaunti Feldhahn (Yeah, how cool is that?  She was at FamilyLife and I did a video interview with her for MomLife Today.) and one of the areas of conversation left me feeling pretty hyped up and ready to spout off! So – put your helmets on ladies, here goes!  I’m gonna just say it straight out – we need to be mindful of how we dress and stop dressing like the unjustly celebrated Desperate … [Read more...]

Chick-fil-A College Game Day Fun

I think the reason I like college football is because I used to be a football statistician, therefore I understand and appreciate the nuances of the game. And because I enjoy pretty much all forms of fun and excitement it's just electrifying to be in a football stadium filled with fired up fans! (Yes, it would be more fully enjoyable if many in the crowd were not inebriated, but I try to love em anyway - I just don't get too close - lovin em from … [Read more...]

Voice of Truth – Music Monday

In my recent interview with Mary Beth Chapman, wife of Steven Curtis Chapman - she made reference to a song her husband co-wrote (Voice of Truth) and it took me back to a time in my life when this song got me through a particularly rough time in my life. You see my husband was working some 80 hours a week (and that is not an exaggeration) and at times I thought I wasn't going to survive the strain it was putting on our marriage, our family and … [Read more...]

Hubby Noticed Shred Results!

I am writing this post because I was asked to...by my husband. You see, he said something that I turned all around that left him standing, staring and asking, "What am I supposed to say to that?" The scene is as follows:  I'm in the laundry room, bending over throwing clothes into the dryer, he walks by, slaps me on the backside and declares, "Whoa that's a skinny little shredded bottom!" To which I say, "Oh great, what did it used to … [Read more...]

Valentine Faux Pas

Hubby ran out to get some groceries a minute ago - which was so sweet, because then I didn't have to go! But I certainly managed to almost ruin his day upon his return. I jumped up off of the couch to greet him and in his hand was a beautiful deep pink tulip plant in a decorative pot and I got all excited and smiled and started professing his wonderfulness for getting me such a beatiful flower. The blank stare, followed by his darting eyes … [Read more...]
