Lee felt the job interview went well. He did a lot of preparing and studying to make his interview go better. This manufacturer is hiring several hundred workers. So that’s good news right? He is scheduled for a weld test next week. One of Lee’s childhood friends works at this plant. Today, Lee called him […]

Taking Better Photos~Even with a “Cheap” Camera

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Since I’ve been learning about photography, I’ve been hearing the dreaded, “Oh your photos are so nice. What camera do you have?” Here’s a huge secret–it’s not the camera. I’m really really thankful that I was able to get a nicer camera and it DOES make higher quality photos. But people still take baaaad photos […]

The Big Interview

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Lee’s big interview is tomorrow. If you don’t mind, please pray for him to do well on his interview. If this isn’t THE job, I’m praying that THE job will show up soon! Thanks for your kindness in praying for us!

It’s Just Part Of Our Life

Monday, February 14th, 2011

Prison/jail is part of our life. I’d like to neatly pack up that part of our story and ship it off to Goodwill or some other place and forget it existed. I can’t do that though and often things happen to bring it in front of my eyes again. Last week, we sat down to […]

An Unlikely Blessing~Book Review

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

I received a free copy of this book to review for the Litfuse Publicity blog tour. I’ve not read anything by Judy Baer before, but I really enjoyed this book. I think I enjoy books like this that deal with Pastors and their families because that’s what I know from growing up in the Pastor’s […]

On Mountains High

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

My brother and sister in law gave me a beautiful Psalms cd for my birthday. I listen to it almost every night while I fall asleep. This is one of the wonderful songs –On Mountains High God You are the God of all created things Before the worlds were formed You knew who I would […]

From Outside the Frame

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Ooo… I found some fun links this week! I’m going to have to ask my sister in law to keep the diaper boxes for me–look how cute these organizers are! Use sheet music to put a skirt on a dresser–love this! Countdown frame–I think this would be super for all sorts of countdowns! I think […]

Sometimes I Am Ugly

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

I am. Ugly! I use words and behave in ways that make me ashamed of myself. I’ve been ugly lately. I’m not even sure why. I get frustrated and angry very easily and unfortunately I’ve acted in ways that do not please my Savior. These past several weeks have felt like one mess after another […]

School Update

Monday, February 7th, 2011

I’m behind on updating you on school. We’re continuing to study Civil War for history. It’s been really enjoyable for me and for James. Here’s what we’re doing right now– 1. Copywork–Gettysburg Address–James is almost done with this but he’s still memorizing it. We don’t memorize copywork usually, but I felt memorizing this was a […]

Marriage Monday~Share your Testimony

Monday, February 7th, 2011

March 1976 was a big month for me! I started piano lessons. Playing the piano has been a lifelong love for me. I truly enjoy sitting down to play and am thankful for the discipline my parents chose to instill in me.I was not allowed to quit lessons or practicing. Mom said that I was […]
