Dear Friend

I have so much waiting in the wings… updates on Finn, and all sorts of nuggets of wisdom that I have mined over the past weekend at a retreat in California with my husband and dear friends… I feel constipated with blog posts and limited in my time to write and publish! I need some … More Dear Friend

Labor and Delivery

A year ago August, our family was serving on assignment at Malibu, a Young Life Camp in Canada, and the blog was just taking shape.

Flooded

It’s the only word I have to describe today. Flooded.  After processing last night through my fingers and posting this in the wee hours of the morning, I could never have anticipated what would come of it today… I admit, when you have 3 little men 7,4 and 2, there is not really time to be … More Flooded
