  “What I’m getting at, friends, is that you should simply keep on doing what you’ve done from the beginning. When I was living among you, you lived in responsive obedience. Now that I’m separated from you, keep it up. Better yet, redouble your efforts. Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and sensitive…

Sometimes someone speaks so beautifully to your heart you don’t ever forget their words.   School here in Arizona starts early.  I suppose there are pros and cons to both starting or delaying the inevitable.  I love summer; the freedom to live a little loose from the daily routine and let my children run free…

I arrived at the airport three hours early, unaware that my quick flight back home was delayed.  Of course a thousand things went through my head.  I had spent the day before carefully creating a detailed schedule that could help the rhythm of my family life operate uninterrupted while I was gone.  I spent the…

I looked up on the wall to see a large wooden sign with these words written across, “What I love is near at hand.”  I’ve only been to my friend’s home twice but have been struck both times with the sense that these were important words for my life.  I have since sat pondering this little…

Editor’s Note: Because we all need a new, fabulous sugar cookie recipe, we’re so excited that Katie Hughes shared her recipe with us to share with those we love just in time for Valentine’s Day! (This post was originally published on Katie’s blog, The Vintage Mother.) Sugar cookies never get old for me. And in…

From time to time, I find myself busier than I want to be. It seems like my “yes’s” outweigh my “no’s” and I’m left wondering why my life feels so lopsided. Several years ago while in the middle of a stressful moment, I went to my Heavenly Father in prayer. I asked Him for specific needs,…

This is our anniversary month so my heart is always a little more aware of things in October.  I remember why we picked it.  October marks the start of an abundant fall–the winding down of a beautiful summer season– and  a renewed focus on God as one anticipates the bounteous blessings He rolls out in the coming months. I often wonder if my husband and…

School is well under way. We’re in our daily grind of ins and outs. There’s a ton of lunches to be made, carpools to coordinate, places to be, and homework to be done. We’re getting in the groove of what will be the next several months of our life here in our home. It’s easy…

I used to live my life in a spirit of perfection. I knew I truly wasn’t perfect, but it’s something I really strived for. I had to write my thank you notes perfectly.  Prepare a perfect meal.  Be the perfect mother. Before my 3rd child was born, I started to feel a sense of inadequacy of not being able…

I’ve been married long enough to understand a few things about being married. The give and take; the defining of roles and responsibilities; the power of communication; the need to take time for one another; the importance of serving each other; the danger of unrealistic expectations; financial understanding.. the list could go on and on….
