How Great Thou Art

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

I’ve been feeling weary lately. My weary isn’t so much body tired, but just “trial tired”. The other day I began singing “How Great Thou Art” and remembered this story and hope it encourages you–just like remembering it encouraged me! I attended college in the northern US. I’ve mentioned my college days before and I […]

Pig Pile R&R Games~TOS Crew Review

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Pig Pile is a fun game from R&R Games for 3-6 players ages 7 and up. It’s a fast paced family game where players compete to corral the most pigs. I love the bright colored cards and the pigs are definitely cute. This game is well made and colorful. The game includes *80 cards *40 […]

Hello!

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

I spent last weekend loving on my brand new nephew! James and I stayed with my sister and niece at my brother’s house and took care of baby #1 while my sister in law was in the hospital with baby #2. They came home on Sunday, and I spent tons of time cuddling with him! […]

Virtual Art Museum Inflation calculator–find out how much a dollar was worth when Grandpa was a kid (it’s depressing!) 20 Things to Make From Cardboard Tubes –who’d have thunk? Taco Spaghetti–I made this this week. The boys have a tendency to like the same old plain stuff. But they thought this was good. Rhubarb Crumb […]

Women of Faith~I Get To Go!

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

  I was chosen as a Book Sneeze blogger for the Women of Faith conference and I’m going to the conference in Milwaukee. Are any of you going to that one? If so, let me know and we can meet! I’m looking forward to this. I’ve never been able to do anything like this and […]

Mugabe and the White African~Book Review

Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

I received a free copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity to review on my blog. It’s not the typical type of book I pick up, but I’m finding it interesting. I don’t know much about the conflict in Zimbabwe but I’m finding this book draws me in. It’s well written and I find myself […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

  This summer, I feel like I’ve been gaining and losing the same weight. A little frustrating and at the same time at least I’m not gaining new weight! I’d just love to be done losing weight! Anyway, I had a couple cool things happen the last couple days and so I shall share! 1. […]

Catching Up?

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

I meant to catch up with you today. My sister and niece were here all weekend and left last night. So we’ve been busy! But I woke up not feeling well this a.m. and just don’t feel like catching you up! Sorry–if I rally later on today I’ll type a real post.   Lee got […]

Too Blessed To Be Stressed~ Book Review

Friday, August 19th, 2011

I received a free copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity to review. It’s a lighthearted easy devotional read. Perfect for a little uplift or encouragement. I wouldn’t use this as my Bible study–it’s not really my type for study. But I do think it’s a good fit for days you just need a pick […]
