Fresh Start

I start my week by bringing my concerns to God. This particular week I was weighed down with remembering what didn't go well last week. For example: I raised my voice when my daughter gave me a sassy reply and I didn't do well providing nutritious meals for my family. These failures weighed heavily on... Continue Reading →

Good Health,

For me, eating well is the key to my good health. I know that, so why do I stop eating healthy foods?Some days I don't eat fruits or vegetables at all. Instead, I choose easy, convenient, processed, carb-related foods. This tends to be a pattern  in my life.  One day I'm eating all the healthy... Continue Reading →

It will get hot this month and stay hot for a couple of months.  In fact in Southern California it's going to be 112 degrees today.  Vacation Bible School and Kids Summer Camp are already over. Now's it's... Continue Reading →

Discouragment

I do it often.  It seems this week all the creativity I need to make dinner is gone.  I have food in the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. But it is me who cannot figure out what to make....

A Coffee Break Update

So it has been a month already since I've had no coffee or tea with caffeine in it. This was a hard month! At first I was so tired and couldn't turn to coffee or tea to perk myself back up.  I just had to deal with being tired and not being alert all the... Continue Reading →

ADHD Frustration

Sometimes living with someone who has ADHD and/or other special needs can be frustrating. OK, it is frustrating! Some days more so than others. And I'm really frustrated! It's been one of those weeks. Do they need a different medication or just a dosage change for the same medication? How can I be more consistent?... Continue Reading →

Planting Seeds

Recently I've had many teaching opportunities.  I am very thankful for them. God is always faithful to give me a message for each unique group. However, the other morning I woke up discouraged. I'm doing all this work but I see no fruit. So I took my discouraged heart to Jesus. Prayer: Jesus, I do... Continue Reading →
