You know that feeling? You suddenly realize something is missing — something important — and you don’t know where it is. I’m becoming far too familiar with that feeling lately. Not sure what’s up. Here’s the report from just the last five days: I was ten minutes late to an appointment because I noticed part way there that I didn’t have my purse with me. I left my wallet sitting in […]Read More →

Back from Ukraine!
I used to wake up with a plan for the day. Now I wake up and have to figure out where I even am. In the midst of writing a month’s worth of posts for our Child-Training Boot Camp Bible study, arranging flowers for two different weddings, putting our house on the market (5 offers in 4 days!), and accepting an offer on the place that has been our home […]Read More →
Why One Mother Is Glad Her Children Don’t Obey
I’m heading to Florida this weekend for a one-day conference. I fly all day Friday, talk on Saturday, and get back on a plane at 6 a.m. (which will feel like 3 a.m. to me) on Sunday morning to fly back home. 😛 So I’m trying to shift my body from Pacific Time to Eastern Time now, since I won’t have much time to turn my internal clock around while […]Read More →
A School for Training Parents
(Post by Daniel Forster) “Home life is a school as much for training parents as children” – Andrew Murray This is actually one of the top reasons my wife and I are committed to homeschooling our children. Both of us finished homeschooling a long time ago, took some college classes, and read hundreds of books, but we’ll never be done learning. I know God has more lessons for us to […]Read More →

Small Seeds of Faithfulness Grow into Large Trees
Last month, I had the honor of spending two weeks with Pastor Sujoy and his family in India. I and the others on my mission team worked beside him teaching computer and English classes, caring for kids, teaching them about the Bible, and sharing the gospel with villagers in the beautiful Sundarban Islands. Pastor Sujoy, a stocky, serious, yet cheerful man, is the driving force behind multiple Christian ministries in […]Read More →
Last month, I went on a trip to India, along with my brother and sister and a group from our church. We spent twelve days serving along side the Bengali Christians at the Grace Community Centre in Kolkata. The first two days were spent teaching computer and English classes and helping with GCC’s daycare ministry. A leaky boat then took us on a three-day excursion to the Sundarban Islands, stopping […]Read More →
My Trip to Ukraine

Mama posted about my trip while I was in Ukraine, and several of you graciously bid on artwork that helped fund my trip. Thank you so much for your support! We served at a camp primarily focused on equipping and refreshing pastors and their families. Our team provided theological and pastoral training, practical […]Read More →
