That’s what John used to say to me when I despaired over the disaster our home became after the whirlwind of our children passed through.  Not a very flattering comparison but one I understood.  And he just said it again because I had the...

I have so much to do this Saturday morning, afternoon…day.  It’s time to play catch up.  The laundry is almost finished.  Okay, there’s a pile on the couch, but hey, they’re clean, they don’t count.  I’m close.

 

It’s the pile of...

There are people who love autumn, people whose favorite season is the fall.  There are people who begin to decorate for Christmas at the first whiff of coolness in the air.  There are people who dream of winter and cocoa by a fire and snuggling...

I want to clarify why I've been writing about  all this Strong Girl stuff.  Why #stronggirl?  Because I want to help raise up a generation (even those of us above their 50’s like me) who will press through – press through sin, harm, stereotypes,...

I don’t like stairs.  I don’t do them well.  I take a step up and my left knee lets me know that cartilage is a word I should understand.  Still, back in May, I felt God’s nudge for me to commit to “doing the Incline”.  My first reaction...

This blog is a bit of a confession.  Here goes.  I thought that following God and being a Christian would lead to a life that was kind of easy, filled only with joy, free from pain and sorrow.  Silly me.  I’m not even sure where I got that idea...

Summer in Colorado is a marvelous thing.  The people that populate the state are some of the fittest in the nation and rate as the slimmest.  Come summer, gyms empty and the outdoor activities, always rampant, explode.  Hiking.  Climbing. ...

Yes, it’s a theme.  It’s going to remain a theme for a while because I want to press into it almost as much as I want to press into the heart of God.  (But nothing can come close to that!)  This summer, I feel like I am just beginning to scratch...

When I go hiking with my family I always bring up the rear.  This began when they were little tikes in an attempt to keep them from wandering off the path or killing each other.  John was the engine, leading the way through bush and brush and I...

I saw your wife this morning grab for the pole as the train at Denver International Airport lurched into movement.  She bumped you.  You were irritated.  “I need to hold on,” I heard her explain apologetically.  Out of the corner of my eye I saw...

In honor of my mother.  She left this earth fourteen years ago but she never left my heart.  Residing in Heaven, her fragrance and her undeniable beauty…remain.  I love you, Mom.  Thank you for loving me.

At six years old, my youngest son...

On sunny days, when my three sons were young, we would walk to the park near our home to swing and climb and play.  A one car family, our outings were a respite of joy!  We were blessed to have a car that ran but, well, it wasn’t a very nice...

I like movies and I’m a woman who, if given the option, reads the book first.  I love to get lost in a good story.  When I first read Unbroken a few years ago, I was completely captured.  I was (as were millions of others) utterly moved by the...

I haven’t made New Year’s resolutions for millennia.  Ok, for centuries.  Well, for decades anyway.  But the turn of the calendar makes for such a great opportunity to look back and to look ahead.  It’s affords a moment to check in with your soul...

“How will I know if he really loves me?” sang Whitney Houston in an old classic.  It’s an important question.  We live in a world filled with tangible realities but it seems that the most important questions of all remain in the realm of the...

It’s hard for me to let you go. 

 

I look at you and I see the young man that you are.  I do.  I really do.  I see you but I don’t see you.  I have to keep reminding myself that you are not 14 years old. Or 6 or 2 or 12.  I look at...

In the tenth grade I went on a dare with my sister to see who could go the longest without eating anything. As we both had a few pounds to lose, my mother encouraged the competition. I was really happy when nearing the end of day three my sister...

I was just hiding out of sight on the staircase eavesdropping on my son’s phone conversation.  It was fabulous!

It’s okay.  He was recording a radio interview with my husband that will air later in the week.  I was hiding so I didn’t...

I put the silverware into the dishwasher prongs down.  That way, when I go to remove the clean and shiny silverware, I only touch the handles.  I don’t touch the scoop of the spoon where someone will put his or her mouth.  I don’t handle the...

My friend’s son is in boot camp.  He doesn’t hail from a military family but he lives in a military town and he knew what to expect.  Further, he’s an athlete.  He’s strong and lithe and knows intimately what it means to push himself beyond all...
