Choosing a School: Follow God's Lead

Written by: | September 16, 2011

Lydia & Asa’s Ark My kids like to play. I’m not talking about playing with dolls or trucks. We have reached the perfect age of pretend. They make up elaborate tales, crazy stories and unable-to-be-followed-by-anyone-over-the-age-of-eighteen adventures. And I love it! Seeing my preschoolers’ imaginations come alive is one of...

Written by: | August 23, 2011

“Boys, toys and noise” is often the motto at our house. Our 14 year marriage has been blessed with three blonde haired, blue-eyed boys (ages 10, 7, and 5) who look like stair steps when they’re all together. I never expected to be a mom of three boys. Honestly,...
