A few days ago a very exciting package arrived for me. Inside was a fun gadget I'd wanted to try for a while. It's called the olloclip. Basically it's just a clip on lens for your smartphone. I chose the... Continue reading

Yay!!!!! CHEER is going to be great. Think of all the fun things you get to do in the name of that? Reminds me very much of "joy" and "happiness" all good things. Here's to a WONDERFUL CHEER-filled 2015!

Shannon, you did beautifully! I have always loved when you've shared family history here. How exciting for your brother and his friend. The app sounds relevant and worthwhile.

I'm back among the living today! Or that's how I feel... As someone who rarely gets sick (I can count the number of times I've vomited as an adult on one hand) and who takes every precaution necessary (hand washing... Continue reading

This is awesome! How wonderful that your primary kids know they are loved and cared for by their leaders. And it sounds like they are one-of-a-kind, fantastic leaders! Agree with you wholeheartedly on influencing early to kids that Jesus loves them. What a powerful truth!

I broke down my one-little-word LISTEN into 6 phrases: Love God, others, and myself. Intentionally respond and communicate. Savor small and simple moments. Take unhelpful thoughts captive. Enrich the creative experience. Nurture good things. ... 2014 just about broke me.... Continue reading
