Write31Days #4: Hello Mornings

Ah, mornings. I love the Bible verse in Lamentations 3:22-23 that says “His mercies are new every morning.” Each day we have a new opportunity to start over. To be intentional about how we spend this particular day. I can choose sleep if I had a rough night (and that really might be the best […]

Day 3 of Books: Bible Time

Of all the reading I do it is most important for me to read my Bible so I try to start my day there. Some days I get to read more, some days less but God meets me whatever season I am in. There are a few different ways I use to keep me in […]

Why do you read? There are so many different reasons: to learn, to be entertained, to stretch your mind, to be inspired, to share in an experience with others or to experience life from a different perspective just to name a few. It depends on the day and the season of life what kind of […]

Instant Pot Applesauce

We had an abundant harvest of apples this year. Our young orchard (planted 7 years ago) produced the best apples we have ever had in addition to our more mature tree. Every year I can as much applesauce as I can depending on the harvest. I think it is safe to say that this year’s […]

What I Learned This Summer 2018

I am linking up with Emily P. Freeman for her quarterly what I learned series.  I always love taking some time to reflect on the season as it is winding down and this provides a great opportunity! Hawaiian Roll Deli Sandwiches are awesome for large family road trips! I used this post to get me […]

Great Falls

We took a 5 day, 4 night camping trip through central and northwestern Montana and even jaunted into eastern Idaho for our big family adventure this summer. Our first stop was Great Falls. Great Falls was found by Lewis and Clark on their expedition through what is now Montana in 1805. There are actually 5 […]

Stitch Fix #7

It’s time for another Stitch Fix box! This year I bought their season pass so I paid $50 for a year’s worth of stylist fees. It has worked out nicely that I don’t have to feel bad if I don’t want to keep the clothes. But they are getting better and better at sending things […]
