• My Friday Night Broken Heart

    Last Friday our church had a documentary screening on human-trafficking. It wasn’t our typical relax-over-homemade-pizza-and-TV Friday activity, but we decided to go anyway, reluctant as we were. The video was about 90 minutes long, and afterwards there was a panel of church leaders and members who shared how they were helping in the area and

So, this is one of those what-I-did posts; thanks for

  • Lessons in Marriage: Decorating with a Boy

    One of the hardest adjustments after getting married was decorating with a boy. It was hard because I honestly never considered it being an issue.

  • April 9th

    April 9th is my favorite day of the year. Two years ago it trumped any other birthday or holiday. I remember all of the details. Things you normally forget hours afterwards, I remember years later. Sneaking out of bed and joining my mom for coffee in the sunroom before the sun, or my bridesmaids, woke
