  • Who knew a low-maintenance, frugal Valentine's Day is actually the most romantic? My parents, evidently. See, they both unapologetically enjoy saving a pretty penny. No jewelry; no fancy night out needed. Instead, you’ll find one simple grocery-store bouquet of carnations on the dining room table: My moms favorite flower. I used to consider it odd, until I realized her reasoning:

  • I was encouraged by something my son said the other day and I want to share it with you, too.  My son Hayden got braces recently. He was so excited.  I don’t recall ever seeing someone excited to get braces.  He was excited even knowing that there would be discomfort that came along with them.  Curious as to why he was so excited, Hayden said, “Because I know how good my smile is going to look when the braces come off”.

  • Happy New Year!  I hope 2016 has gotten off to a great start for you.  On the last day of 2015, I was driving along the scenic route to Enumclaw and I looked up in awe at Mt. Rainier and the foothills as they presided majestically over the pastoral farm land.  The day was exquisitely clear and sunny without a cloud in sight, so the view was spectacular as it revealed all the colorful hues and details of the awesome snow-covered mountain and foothills.  Mt. Rainier is so huge it looked like I could drive there in no time at all.  But at 14,411 feet it was still a couple of hours away.  I felt very fortunate to have such a gorgeous sight to behold on the last day of the year.  It gave me such a feeling of hope and joy for the new year!

  • Were you shivering during that game the Hawks played the Vikings?  I was just watching it on TV. You know, the last two games had their own kind of crazy. Crazy cold in Minnesota, and the week before, crazy fun on the home field.

  • It happens every year, doesn’t it? As much as I don’t want it to, the New Year always makes me want to set goals. Things like: Organize the house. Exercise more. Lose weight. Read the Bible. Pray. Spend more meaningful time with my kids. Save money. All good, in theory. Anyone else get so sick of hearing and seeing everywhere because you just know…inevitably….you are going to fail. Statistically most people have given up by March. I’m ahead of that curve….I usually give up by February!

  • Happy soon to be 2016! What are you hoping is different this year?  Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of the term, "New Year’s Resolution" because it just sets me up for failure every year. I call my New Year plan adjusting my life path. God has a purpose and plan for my life.... this I know.  Sometimes I don't always follow the plan, I get off course. But, I love the way He works all things for good. So, when I ran across Joanna Gaines’ testimony it got me thinking of how God is really at the helm of my ship. Even when I question his direction I need to relinquish and let Him be the captain of my life.

  • My husband is an attorney. When we moved five years ago he couldn’t find a job. I remember looking at his face when he walked in the door, late, wearing his red uniform shirt with the little white bullseye logo on the pocket from his part –time job. Defeated.

  • The time leading up to Christmas seems kind of like a crazy frenzy of things we’ve got to do, expectations to meet (those of ours and our own), and generally a lot of rushing around. It hasn’t always been this way though. Historically, Christians have called this time of year Advent, which is a time of anticipation; a time of waiting. During Advent, we look back, anticipating the arrival of Jesus as a baby in a manger. We also look forward to His return in glory as a reigning king.
