Yesterday our potbellied piglet, Chunk, got out of his make-shift pen and rampaged through my garden. I had cabbages and spinach getting really close to full-grown, and now they're only a few naked stalks standing on end. I'm not too... Continue reading

Onions are going in. This week has been so hard. Some friends are going through an unthinkable tragedy, and I have been on my face before the Lord on their behalf. Begging, pleading, bargaining, arguing. Today I spent some time... Continue reading

I'm making time to read this book right now. And it is feeding my soul! I made the commitment several years ago to go "all in" as the homemaker in the family. To unapologetically make motherhood my JOB. This book... Continue reading

Hello my name is Anna, and I want to talk about mental health. There are so many of us who struggle in this area--normal people whose brains don't produce enough of a certain chemical, or produce too MUCH of another... Continue reading

Black History Month. Since we started homeschooling, we have not taken the time to study black history every February, because we've been following our history curriculum Story of the World. It includes a lot of black history as it fits... Continue reading

So there's this question that you as a parent are going to ask in the course of your parenthood. If you haven't asked it yet, you will. Am I her friend, or am I her parent? And for me this... Continue reading

Well, it's January 30th, and I'm already writing my New Year's Resolution post! This might be a record. To give a quick review of the last year, my "word" for 2016 was LEAN IN. That meant instead of wasting my... Continue reading
