I am going through a growing time, to put it mildly, where the Lord has used several circumstances in my life to bring me to the end of myself, which, though it feels like an awful place to be (especially for a control freak), it's actually the ONLY safe place to be. The only place ...

Josh Duggar: What’s It Got to Do With Us?

For a number of reasons (including an on-going 3-week sickness) I don't even have the energy to write about this heart-wrenching situation right now.

Our Family Deserves the Best of Us (Avoiding a Leftoverish Generation)

Easy, Cheap Homemade Gifts

When my daughter got married, we used two large, canvas curtains for decoration. The cheapest solution was a painter's drop cloth.
