Spiritual Preparedness

This isn't a post on preparing spiritually on getting to heaven. This is a post about being ready, spiritually, if the you have an emergency. My emergency may not be the same as yours. It could be a job loss or car accident. It could be a natural disaster or economic collapse, too. Regardless of the emergency will you be ready, spiritually? Will you be able to handle the stress of life changing event. A…

I Was Part of the 47%

This is the post where I talk about being reformed Liberal. There was a time in my life where I needed help from the government. I ended up living at home with my two small boys. Then living in a long-term shelter or what would be known as a transitional housing. I had a one-year-old and a 2 1/2 year old boys. I received AFDC from the $546 a month. I also received Food-stamps, childcare,…

Becoming our Mother’s

It is amazing to me how much mother's and daughter's become alike. Alternately titled: What Message are We Sending Our Daughter's? The older I get the more I see myself respond to things the way my mother did. Lord help me. And The Principal. My mother sometimes responded strongly to things. As many traits she had that I am proud to also have, there are a few that I need to work on. Her ability…

It’s Father’s Day

Neither The Principal or I have our father's this side of heaven. My dad passed away in July of 1999. Jesse was 2 months old. My father in law passed away December of 2002. Nothing brings you closer together as a couple than the loss of a parent. Not the we know of anyway. Father's Day could be bittersweet for us. We still have kids that want to celebrate their dad. This year, as with…

Save the Drama for your Mama

I would hope, that my professing to be Christian, people would know my views on: Marriage Equality Abortion Constitutional rights like gun ownership a freedom of speech. The freedom to homeschool, although we didn't bring kids home for religious reasons. I don't need to post daily,in your face, pictures or rants about these topics. I don't because I am trying to be respectful of others. Those that don't have the same views. My posting isn't…

Overcoming February Funk

It is now February. My LEAST favorite month of the year. The holidays are long gone. We are back into the routine of school. Spring is nowhere to be seen and the snow that was so beautiful at Christmas is still here. To add to it, The Principal is gone this week, and also the last week of the month. Ever since we moved to Idaho, 10 years ago this month, February has this affect…

My Son: The Recovering Porn Addict

I am both saddened and encouraged by the response to this little series. I first wrote about the statistics. I wanted you all to be aware. I then wanted you to know WHY. Why I wanted you to be aware of the statistics. It was because my son struggled with pornography. I titled this recovering because, I believe, like with any addiction, there will always be a draw to it. Why the picture with a…

I Can’t Take Credit for That

When I get compliments on my kids about how great they are, how it's so great and wonderful they're serving I want to say thank you, yes they're my kids. I can't take credit for that. The fact that makes my heart all proud to be a parent when my kids are awesome because I sure don't claim it when they're not awesome. It is only by the grace of God my kids are where…
