20 Things I Did In My 20s (plus an announcement!)

Goodbye 20’s. Instead of listing 30 things I’ve learned in 30 years or something typical like that I instead want to look back on the last decade and say goodbye. I want to pause and reflect on where God has brought me these last ten years. So here are 20 things I did in myContinue reading “20 Things I Did In My 20s (plus an announcement!)”

That Time My 3 Year Old Needed “Exploratory Surgery”

1 year ago it was the day before Father’s day and 2 days before our anniversary. We had a getaway planned the next night to celebrate our anniversary. My husband was preaching that Sunday and being commissioned with the youth group for the upcoming mission trip that would begin 1 week later. 1 year ago,Continue reading “That Time My 3 Year Old Needed “Exploratory Surgery””

“Exploratory Surgery” and the Goodness of God

Just like I’ve seen ear infections ‘come back’ after the antibiotics were done could mean the same thing might be possible with a UTI, right?

I am Nobody Special

Yep, I’m a mom. I’m a stay-at-home mom (SAHM). I’m a h.o.m.e.s.c.h.o.o.l.i.n.g. mom. I’m also a Pastor’s Wife: newbie (under 5 years) pastor’s wife.

There are SO many stereotypes attached to these labels andContinue reading “I am Nobody Special”

Confessions of a Seminary Wife: Sacrifices (Post from Sept 2013)

Drowsiness ensues as I lay in my bed wondering whether or not I will say goodnight to my husband before the nocturnal demands overtake my exhausted body.  BUZZ! goes the dryer.  I’ll get it tomorrow. Cheerios are scattered across half of the living room floor with the vacuum standing as a borderline between the cleanContinue reading “Confessions of a Seminary Wife: Sacrifices (Post from Sept 2013)”

To be a ‘Pastor’s Wife’

I’ll have to follow up with this post in about 3-5 years or so (hopefully). But, since I just stumbled upon it recently I wanted to write about my thoughts, reactions, and share a little bit about the fantastic discussion I had about this with my hubby. To get a really good grasp of whereContinue reading “To be a ‘Pastor’s Wife’”

Does this job have a dress code?

If you’ve ever had any kind of job you’ve had to ask the question at least once: what’s the dress code? Is it business-casual, business-dress, casual, all black, uniform, red shirt and khaki pants, company polo, or what? It’s a legitimate question since what you wear on the outside does reflect, to some extent, theContinue reading “Does this job have a dress code?”
