As I try to be thankful for the hard day

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting, Special Needs (No Respond)

1:30pm finds my older two out playing in the rain. My youngest is napping. Meanwhile, I’m listening to one of Sarah Fink-Jensen’s Spotify playlists thinking about yesterday’s hard day. “We are not as strong as we think we are” by Rich Mullins comes on. I pop another sweet cherry in my mouth and my eyes […]

But If Not…

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Just Life, Parenting (No Respond)

So yesterday Isaac fell down the stairs, and then had a bad seizure. I’m so thankful for the children God gave me. Chloe (10) was a huge blessing in getting me the phone for 911, then gathering what I would need to take with me. John (8) was incredible as he stayed out of the […]

beholding him loved him

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting (No Respond)

Isaac is missing. We were at the park. He had better things to do than lay under a tree for a group selfie! These days I am very much reveling in my children, in motherhood, in these glorious summer days. Earlier this week, while on a nature walk, the sun was shining, the birds were […]

Peeking Through My Window–Repost

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Just Life, Keeper of Home, Marriage, Parenting (No Respond)

Source I had initially posted Peeking Through My Window in March 2012 but happened upon it the other day and thought it was a great time to repost, even if it isn’t March Break…just insert “back to school” or something. I began preparing for March break in February. Alas, March break crept up fast and […]

Sometimes Life Isn’t Beautiful

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Just Life, Parenting (5 Responds)

In 2012, Isaac began having seizures. You know those times when you are almost asleep and you jerk awake? Most of his seizures physically look like that jerk except that he is awake and doing normal activities when they happen. Sometimes they are a singular occurrence and if you blink, you miss it. Other times […]

Packing for Camp Y.E.S. 2014

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Parenting (2 Responds)

It’s Chloe’s first year heading to camp by herself for a week. I’m pretty sure she’s ready and I’m not. It helps that every year (except 1) we’ve went to Family Camp for a week there so she’s familiar with the grounds as well as the lovely families that live there year round and she […]

When They Don’t Like You

Posted by Jennifer under Parenting (No Respond)

My sweet girl. Like her mother, there are so many things she struggles with. One such morning, we’d had an issue, my sweet girl and I. As a result, she was missing a morning of fun and instead was attending a {boring} meeting with me. She sat at the back of the meeting room; I […]


#MomHeart Conference 2014

Posted by Jennifer under Homeschooling, Parenting (No Respond)

These are my friends, new and old, from the MomHeart Conference in Texas last week; one friend I met online 5 years ago, three I met last year at the conference in NC and two were brand new this year {or four if you count the adorable little girl and boy that tagged along with […]

How I Get Myself Outside for Winter Play with the Children

Posted by Jennifer under Just Life, Parenting (No Respond)

Winter’s Snow Fun! OK, so bad pun but the pictures completely make up for that, don’t they? I have a confession; I don’t like winter and that is mostly because I do not like cold.  And sometimes, I’m just a little bit lazy. My intended pun isn’t actually "’winter’s so fun” but rather “winter’s no […]

You’re a Good Mama

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting (No Respond)

Credit @Doug88888 “You’re a good mama”. I hear that every so often from seniors at our church. I love them, value their encouragement and it warms my heart, probably because one of my love languages is words of affirmation. “If you have children, love them, but, don’t try to be a perfect mother.” ~ 60 […]
