Family Legacy

Written by: | July 25, 2012

July holds one of our family’s very favorite holidays, Independence Day. When you think of July the 4th several things come to mind like… fireworks, parades, barbeque fireworks, carnivals, fairs, picnics, fireworks, concerts, baseball games, family reunions and fireworks. I guess it should come as no surprise, since I...

Our Version of the Family Bed

Written by: | June 18, 2012

We don’t usually practice the Family Bed at our house. Call me crazy, but I don’t like being jabbed in the ribs or listening to the grinding of teeth while I sleep. But, sometimes we like to shake things up a bit and make exceptions at the Wilsons….so, when...

Lazy, Hazy, Fun-Filled Days of Summer

Written by: | May 28, 2012

Summer is almost here and I, for one, am ready for it to get here! I’m ready for sleeping in, lazy mornings, road trips and lots of lounging by the pool with friends. We’re currently in the midst of baseball season and I love the ballpark. I never knew...

Oh, How I Adore Spring

Written by: | April 11, 2012

If I were a season I’d, without a doubt, be Spring. I love everything about spring. The flower and trees that bloom in bright, gorgeous colors. The dazzling green color the grass turns after the first spring shower. The warmer temperature that pull us out of sweaters and scarves...

Cabin Fever and Imaginations

Written by: | March 7, 2012

Winter is my least favorite season. I’m, personally, so happy to know spring is just around the corner that I’m about to bust. Maybe it’s because my family loves to be out doors and winter gives us a bit of cabin fever. And believe me, cabin fever with three...

Love Those Around Us Through Prayer

Written by: | February 21, 2012

I have to say February is probably my least favorite month. It’s cold and dreary in Nashville and it’s very well established that I’m not a fan of cold… unless there is snow on the ground and skis on my feet! But right when February is at it’s coldest...

Building Good Stewards in a Spend-Like-Crazy World

Written by: | January 17, 2012

January is the time to make changes and changes we’re making! Okay, not too many huge changes, we want success so we don’t overshoot our goals. This year we’re implementing a chore chart and pay status (commission, freelance labor, whatever you want to call it). I really consider myself...

Jesse Tree

Written by: | December 23, 2011

In case you haven’t noticed it’s December! My family loves Christmas. We light up the whole, and I mean WHOLE, house. We eat peanut butter balls and sugar cookies until we’re sick. We wrap gifts and make ornaments. Our holiday season probably looks a lot like yours. But let’s...

Better Days Challenge

Written by: | November 16, 2011

We’re all aware it’s November and you know what that means… pilgrims, turkeys, and lots of talk about Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving has always been a meaningful holiday for me, but the importance really sunk in when we started a family. As parents we knew we wanted to raise children who...

Football, Cuddling and Eye Contact

Written by: | October 24, 2011

I’m the only bit of estrogen in a testosterone filled home… well, unless you count our one year-old Brittany Spaniel, Millie. But let’s be honest, Millie chews on socks so I’m not sure she counts. Because of my sole-femaleness (is that a word?) my awareness of my role in...

Boundaries of Uniqueness

Written by: | September 6, 2011

School is back in session and I, for one, have found something that went missing this summer… something I need for pure survival… something that was hijacked by travel, pool dates, late nights and camping trips… routine! Hip hip hooray, there is now a somewhat organized method to our...

Little Kids Spell Love T-I-M-E

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,...
