Guess who is swimming into theaters in June 2016? FINDING DORY! My husband and I, er, I mean my youngest, are incredibly excited about the latest release from Disney! According to my youngest son, he "has waited his whole life for this moment!" 😉 The boy fell in love the moment he gazed at Nemo's special fin. He loves Nemo. In fact, his nickname is Nemo because of his adoration for clown fish. Anyone want to guess what his favorite Christmas gift was and still is after all these years? If Read more [...]
As moms, we are sometimes overwhelmed. We often wonder how much longer we'll be stuck in spin cycle of cleaning the same messes and doing the same old ordinary thing. How will we ever use our everyday lives to make a difference? What if we admit our failures? Will God still be able to use us? How can those of us who are just ordinary moms influence those around you intentionally and Biblically?
Clay was on recruiting duty and that wasn't what I pictured of an Army wife life. Read more [...]

Howdy! I am here to share another Crew review with you. This time I bring you Scripture Scribes: Words for Men of Honor Women of Grace from Laurelwood Books.
It's no secret I'm a firm believer and admirer of the Charlotte Mason method of homeschooling. One of the things many things I love about this method is her encouragement of copy work.

I have tried them all!
Next came the iPhone. I actually like using my iPhone when I remember using it. My husband is better about entering things Read more [...]

This list is numbered in no certain order. Each is equally important.
