Somewhere In My Head…

My husband bought me a new computer for Christmas. Totally unexpected.  We had talked about it and I pushed back at the idea citing other needs we had. Our household income is not made using my computer and as long as my vintage computer (so said the nice gentleman at the Apple store) still turned …

Building Relationships With Adults As An Adult

Building relationships and starting new friendships in my adult years has been hard. Every person's "normal" setting is different.  I expected that if a new acquaintance is cross cultural to my own but even with the same culture, it is different. I find myself trying to prove that I am worthy of that persons friendship. …

Dear SAHM: There Are More Important Things

Growing up, I remember doing many chores.  I remember all of our responsibilities. Dishes, vacuuming, dusting, Windex glass, picking up after ourselves, daily floor sweeps, any other assignment either parent assigned, plus homework.  It was life.  It taught us all a great deal. We learned how to be responsible, that actions had consequences, that what we …

God Never Promised To Do Anything Our Way

It is true that God breaks EVERY chain. He is powerful enough to do the impossible.  I know that from experience.  God's word says it, I believed His word and trusted that He would do what He said He would do, and He did it. His methods and timing? So, so, soooo far off from …
