What I Love and Hate About School Open Houses

I love days like today. Today my 5 year old had her class’s “Open House”. She was so excited about going that it seemed like every 2 minutes she was trying to count me down, until it was really time to go. Which as you can imagine, took forever, in her mind. During the open [...]

Make It a "Triple Hooray" Day!

Well, despite the way it appeared my day started off yesterday, (Up & At ‘em Down Single-Parenting Lane) I’m happy to report it turned out to be remarkable in several ways.

What I learned from my "Interrupted Life"

Over the last few days as those of you who’ve been reading my new blog have emailed me, I’ve noticed quite a bit.  Many email me with sincere thanks for just providing a blog like this. Then there are others, who are clearly still hurting, due to much church hurt that even the words “Truth [...]

Vince Gill, Amy Grant Open Up on Marriage and Divorce – The Boot

I thought this was very interesting. I remember when all the “hoopla” over Amy Grant and Vince Gill happened, as I lived in Nashville at the time. When high-profile “celebrity” Christians divorce, there’s always some sort of tabloid speculation their families have to deal with.
