The Narnia Code by Michael Ward

I remember a friend of mine trying to explain The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to me when I was around 9 or 10. At that point, I had never heard of the books, and they really didn’t sound that interesting to me. But several years later, my parents bought them for me to […]

Our Thankfulness Tree

Last year I came up with an idea. I’m sure it’s not original to me, and I’ve actually seen several variations of this basic idea lately. But I wanted our Thanksgiving dinner to be about more than just food and family. Not that those aren’t good things. But I wanted to make sure that we […]

Gratitude Challenge Days 16, 17, and 18

Here I am again being grateful for 3 days at a time! For some reason I haven’t felt especially like blogging this week. I don’t know why exactly. I haven’t been particularly busy, just kind of blah feeling. I guess I need the gratitude challenge more than I realized! Day 16 – November 16 was […]

Gratitude Challenge Days 13,14, and 15

OK, so maybe I’m not quite meeting this challenge in the way it was intended. I am supposed to think of something every day that I’m grateful for. But over the weekend, I was grateful to not spend much time on the computer, thus no posts from me! But I will still think of 3 […]

Gratitude Challenge Day 10

Today I am thankful for books: real, solid, hold them in your hands, books. Not that I don’t appreciate technology, but I don’t think I’ll ever be able to enjoy reading from an e-reader the same way that I do a book. This year I’ve set a goal of reading 52 books in 52 weeks. […]
