Remember when I held SEW LOVELY sewing retreats? Well, I'm ramping up to offer them again--this time to young girls (ages 9 & up). It's in the form of a mother-daughter class/retreat and I have two different sessions, one in June and one in July. Now moms, you do not... Continue reading

Fall is here. Wah-hoo. The house is adorned in autumnal colors. My garden produced 7 pumpkins! (Something I've never grown.) Now, I just wish the weather would cool off a little bit. I'm ready to wear some knitted goodness without having to peel it off at 10 am because I'm... Continue reading

How was your summer? Ours was awesome and very full. My lack of blog posts may have had some of you wondering if I have completely disappeared... God has had me working on something new and completely exciting, so my blogging energies have been spent elsewhere. Today, I want to... Continue reading

A while back, I talked about our "yard renovation." I keep waiting for the"light to be right" or for the everything to be put in its place and "photo-worthy." But this morning as I was sitting at the table on the patio I decided, " Forget it. I'm taking photos... Continue reading

Lest you think she has "grown out of it," here's another one of Beth's messes! This big girl turned 4 a couple of days ago, but she is still just as full of mischief, creativity and humor as she ever was. While drawing with sidewalk chalk, she decided to add... Continue reading

Well, summer is upon us. I love it when my kids are home, without having to rush out of the house each morning. Still, it's good to have some kind of routine. And, for me, the beginning of new season always encourages to start fresh, healthy habits. Enter morning quiet... Continue reading

Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures of their Hill of Calvary. Sorry it's taken me so long to post. It's been one of those months that I've been so busy projecting, gardening and mothering that I haven't taken the time to actually document any of it. So without further... Continue reading

We've had quite a bit going on here the last few weeks (apart from Easter). My parents visited for a week at Easter and I helped plan decorations for a major school event. We also painted our house, built a new fence, and had a new retaining wall and patio... Continue reading

"The full force of the storm of God's fierce anger at sin was coming down. On his own son. Instead of his people. It was the only way God could destroy sin, and not destroy his children whose hearts were full of sin." ---The Jesus Storybook Bible, by Sally Lloyd-Jones... Continue reading

"God was going to pour into Jesus' heart all the sadness and brokeness in people's hearts. He was going to pour into Jesus' body all the sickeness in people's bodies. God was going to have to blame his son for everything that had gone wrong. It would crush Jesus .... Continue reading

On Good Friday, I am reminded that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. Who did Jesus die for? For me. Because of me. For my sins. Because he loved me. We got this idea a few years ago from my friend, Wendy. Using a permanent red marker, make... Continue reading

My friend, C.L., introduced me to this wonderous salad. Although it's made with rice, to me, it has a "light and fresh" flavor that reminds me of spring. It's one of those perfect make-ahead dishes that tastes better a day or two after you make it. It makes A TON.... Continue reading

My childhood is full of holiday memories that include my Grandma Doerman's super lime jello. But, I remember it especially on Easter with ham and homemade rolls. I've carried on the tradition, serving it on Easter at our house each year. But, really it's fabulous anytime. Even for breakfast. The... Continue reading

Ingredients: 1/2 stick of butter (melted) 1 can of large refrigerated rolls (I prefer Pillsbury Grands) Large... Continue reading
