Remembering the Importance of the Seemingly Unimportant at Home

You'd think I would remember. I've been cherishing and talking about HOME for so long. But we get busy and we forget. I do anyway. I forget how important are the hundreds of little things that make home what it is. That the atmosphere of a home subtly, slowly and profoundly shapes our children as they ...

How to Raise a Snowflake (An Overly Sensitive, Easily Offended Person Who Struggles with Life)

By the new definition of what it means to be a snowflake, it feels like we're living in a winter wonderland, where it truly makes one wonder, "How did we get here?" Maybe you've noticed that we live in a time more than ever where feelings rule and the main rule is that anything or anyone ...

A Letter to My Daughters About Sexual Harassment & Living Here Right Now

Dear sweet young girls and women, You are strikingly beautiful--inside and out. Our culture values beauty but sometimes they get it wrong. They mistake seductive or sexy or desired for real beauty and it can get really confusing to those of you trying to make your way through it all.

The Sexual Revolution of Our Culture & What to Tell Our Children

I've been quiet here for a while about hot topics (mostly because my hot topic is running my household/home business and keeping all these people fed and happy). But because I think this is such a crucial issue and I know many Christian parents are grasping at straws about how to navigate through these murky waters ...

You may have noticed it's been a while between the last post in the Narcissist Series and this one. It's because this is so hard for me to write and also, not everyone will agree with me. This subject has caused a good deal of pain and dissension in the church, so I don't enter ...

Narcissistic Personality & Abuse in Marriage: A Series is Coming

One of the reasons I've been quieter here lately, is because I'm neck-deep in helping several women who are in/coming out of narcissistic abuse. I have so much I want to say, and there are so many things that need to be said, and I'm still formulating an order of how I'm going to say ...

5 Reasons the Abortion Argument Fails (And How You Can Save Lives)

On the heels of New York's law passed last week to extend the allowance of abortion up until birth, I have felt it's important to keep talking about the misunderstanding that drives support for the pro-choice movement, and the need for us to not stop talking about it until we have liberated a whole group ...

Everything’s Not the Same: Turning Truth Upside Down to Erase Our Guilt

There is a cultural epidemic killing us (in the name of making us healthy). It's the notion that you shouldn't feel bad, no matter what. Feeling bad is the ultimate terrible thing, and we must eradicate all its roots. This ideology is also what causes such hostility to Christianity, but I digress. We have pain sensors ...
