your calling, not theirs. (trusting God + our callings PART 2)

Earlier this week I posted in part 1 of this series how we were (supposedly) going to destroy our family as we responded to God’s calling upon our lives. We talked about what to do when no one supports your calling. And I left you with this reminder… /////////////////////////////////// So lets continue on with it, shall we?? […]

the most surreal weekend

I know I’ve deviated from my usual posts on diy projects, recipes, devotionals, and such…and been a bit consumed with this past weekend’s BolderBoulder 10k. And you know what??? We won.

it’s not always peachy

For the most part everything is wonderful, fantastic. Cotton candy & carrousels. Tonight is one of those nights.

Letter from Aberhem

We got a letter from Ethiopia today! {if you’re confused by the spelling of his name, so are we! every time we get something, his name is spelled differently} {translated by the director of his orphanage} “Hello!

preparing our family for a new {adopted} child

It’s interesting how many people ask me if our kids know we’re adopting a 13 year old. I can’t imagine ever keeping that a secret from them. It’s too huge. They need to be part of it, almost from the very beginning. We share it all with them. The excitement, the nervousness, the concern. I […]
