Star-Gazing is the Closest We’ll Get to Starbucks

cow

The nearest Starbucks coffee is some 40 miles away, but tomorrow we'll have butter 'cause we've got raw milk today! It's not all glam and glitz to dabble on this funny farm, but we marvel underneath the stars and cherish country charm. They think I'm "Fertile Myrtle" but they should only see, these goats don't have a thing on ...

All’s Not Hair in Love and War

mallie-born

It took me 5 children to realize that I might need to say it out loud:  "You are not allowed to cut yours or anyone else's hair". You must hear it from the start... I have had hair woes my whole life. Too thin, too fine, too--not what I wanted it to be. I deal ...

A Few Fun Pics…

In the middle of my giving the kids some basic bedtime instructions, Kyla makes this face and says, "Hush, Mommy."  It was one of those stunning moments where the words escape you.  I don't think she understood the weight of her disrespectful command, and so I had to balance my response, which was somewhere in ...

Photo courtesy of Bria Crawford By far, one of the biggest blessings of any small hardship this pregnancy has caused, is the outpouring of our friends, and the love of Christ through their hands and feet. We have had meals brought, neighbors and friends volunteering to come help with ...

God is faithful in every way, See it here in these peas we picked yesterday. A friend called to tell us their crops overflowed, So we got the free food from the seeds that they sowed. Shellin' peas on the porch with my children around Most landed in place with a few on the ground. We laughed and we talked and ...

Early Child Training

kyla-1

My youngest daughter (18 months old) has entered "the moment of truth".  It is crucial, IMO, that child training starts very early--even as babies we begin using certain words to get them familiar with our expectations, but between the ages of about 1-3, training is intense...they are testing the waters      checking the boundaries                           making sure the ...

The Blessed, Mysterious Reality in My Womb

bw-preggy

Sweet child of mind, that I have yet to meet---God has woven such a mysterious reality in my womb! I have not yet held you, and yet I hold you every moment! I have not yet met you, and yet I know you intimately. I have not yet touched you, and yet we haven't stopped touching since the ...

Humor Me…

I don't post pictures of my fam very often, but when my brother sent these really cool shots from a photo shoot they took in Sedona, AR, I decided to post a few.  My brother and I are really close (if not in proximity)--talking a lot on the phone, usually about some zany idea one of us (both ...
