Taking a Knee in Prayer

A  little boy got hurt at my daughter's hockey game on Saturday. It wasn't serious, but it did cause a stoppage of play during the game. My daughter's coaches have taught her team that when someone is hurt on the ice, they need to "take a knee." They all drop to one knee and wait for the coaches and referees to tend to the injured child.Taking a knee has two purposes. It gets the kids out of the way of the adults who are trying to help the injured child, and it keeps the kids from messing…See More

4 Steps to Save the Day -- MacGyver-style

 My youngest daughter got sent home from school sick on Tuesday. She stayed home again yesterday, but I had work that needed to be done. So, through the wonders of Netflix, I introduced my daughter to one of my favorite TV shows, MacGyver.  MacGyver was my favorite TV show when I was in junior high and high school. Besides having a cute lead actor, I loved how MacGyver could save the day with a stick of bubble gum and a Swiss army knife. Need to disarm a bomb? All you need is a safety pin. Need…See More

Turning Drudgery Into Love

My husband got up yesterday morning and reminded me he had to leave early for work as he walked out the door for his run. His reminder was so I wouldn't forget to make his lunch first. "Why can't he make his own lunch?" I thought, as I hurried through writing my blog so I could get done in time to make his lunch.My youngest daughter announced in the grocery store yesterday that she no longer liked the lunch I had been fixing her, and she wanted something else. "Really?" I thought. "Isn't it…See More

When You Miss the Moment

Posted on January 25, 2012 at 8:00am 0 Comments

As I sat with my youngest daughter at the NHL game on Saturday night, I got a text message from my dad. It was an update on my older daughter's soccer game. It said, "Score is 4-3. E scored 2 goals."

I thought he was kidding, not because my daughter isn't a good player, but she plays defense. She rarely makes it across the midfield mark in a game, much less gets close enough to score a goal. She's scored one goal…

5 Things Moms Rarely Hear

Posted on January 24, 2012 at 8:00am 0 Comments

I had myself a little pity party yesterday. Not 20 minutes after I put on my mommy hat (which comes after my blogger hat every morning), my husband had "suggested" (his words) that our room could use a little cleaning and my oldest daughter had not so gently reminded me that she needs a haircut.

Looking around my house as I did the piles of laundry, made lunches, combed hair and cleaned up after everyone, I had a…

Hi Lori,  I just left your blog, to say that I loved it is an understatement!  I so enjoy reading the thoughts and truths from others about the concept of biblical parenting.  I subscribed to your blog for email updates and have added it to my "favorites" list for my  weekly "reading" as well!  Of course, I would love for you to visit my blog...I believe that in many ways we are "like-minded"...I hope enjoy my post, find a bit of encouragement and follow along!  Blessings!!
