Whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them. Matthew 7:12 My girls and I recently went on a road trip to visit family in Washington state while my husband was out of the country on a business trip. 9 hours into our drive north we were all in…

Look for the Light

While on a family reunion this summer I had an interesting experience. We were on a beach in the Pacific Northwest. The beach had a really fun little miniature island sitting about 8 feet out in the water, accessible by wading through shallow sea water and stepping across submerged rocks. The kids were in heaven,…

I had reached my limit. My husband had been out of the country on business for a week and a half, the house was a mess, I was up to my eyeballs in laundry, and my kids were into everything. I had already cleaned up blue gel food coloring that day (super powerful stuff, let…

Earlier this year at an activity with the youth of our church congregation, we had the kids answering questions that they pulled out of a hat. One of the girls pulled out a slip of paper that asked what her favorite thing to do with her family was. I expected an answer along the lines…

How dark are your spiritual tan lines?

During a recent doctor appointment, my doctor asked me about the odd tan lines on my lower legs. I explained that I wear capri leggings when I go running, thus the tan on my legs that stops several inches below my knees. He knew that I was planning on running in a race that was…

If you aren’t familiar with Mitchell’s story, Mitchell suffered from Duchene muscular dystrophy, a muscle wasting disease that usually follows…

Eight months ago I made the goal to run a half marathon. My goal propelled me forward, but I was not enjoying it. I was all too aware of my aching muscles and the fact that I was not enjoying it. Then one morning everything changed. I was halfway through a run, mentally complaining over…

Last month I received a box of avocados in the mail from a dear friend with an avocado farm in Southern California. I grew up in California, so avocados are near and dear to my heart. As I savored the treat of those perfect avocados I began to think about their growing process, which I…

Being treated unkindly is never a pleasant experience, and it can be hard not to focus on being treated unfairly. I recently watched my five year-old daughter get bullied by an older boy at the park. As I stood up and started to walk over so that I could deal with the situation, I hesitated…
