Reading ... through the gospel of John in the Bible. It's taking me a little while because I keep rereading parts of it to be able to soak it in more. In other books I read How to Live Like a King's Kid.

One of my friends on Facebook had mentioned it, and it intrigued me enough to go on a search. I tried the library. They didn't have it and couldn't find it anywhere on their interlibrary loan system. I went home and hopped on Amazon and found a used copy. All I can say is WOW!! Life changing! Encouraging. Inspirational. Convicting. The rest of the family read it too, and we all got excited together. It has taken us back to the same excitement and living life the way we did after Jesus saved us, and before well meaning Christians told us all the ways God does not work.

In fiction I'm reading Enter Jeeves, by P.G. Wodehouse. It's been a fun little read so far. Then there is the ever changing stack of library books I read to Steven for our daily story times.

Writing ... not much at the moment. I want to fill out this weeks spread in my planner today. There are always my idea books, but I don't count those as writing.

Watching ... we have an episode of Bringing up Bates waiting to be watched.

Listening ... to Phil Wickham  - Living Hope

I love everything about this song.

Cooking ... for dinner tonight I'll be making scallops and a salad for those of us who enjoy scallops. The rest of the family gets to have leftovers.

Wearing ... a gray patterned skirt and a pink top.

Loving ... the conversations that happen in the mornings before we buckle down to do school. They can be some of the most deep, insightful conversations, or utterly hilarious, to anything in between. I'll miss it once this phase of life is over.


  1. yes, my will those early morning conversations before school starts when this phase of your life is over. I know I certainly did. Our daughter now lives 5 hours from us (better than when she lived in Mexico City though) and our son lives 14 hours away...but we still have some wonderful conversations. Our daughter called this afternoon and I don't know when I've laughed so much as I did with her today. Each phase of life has its blessings.

    I am now very intrigued by the book How to Live Like a King's Kid because you've given it such a wonderful review! I cannot for the life of me imagine Christians (well meaning or not) telling people all the ways God does not work! Thank you for the heads up on the book!

    1. sorry...I thought I proofed that comment before posting...first line, "you will MISS those early morning conversations...

  2. Thank you for telling us about that book. Sounds like something I would be very interested in reading too. Wouldn’t it be nice to always be able to keep the fire in your heart that you had when you’re first saved? It makes me sad that Christians can be responsible for bringing people down. Anyway, I’m going to look for that book for sure.
    I think I’ve missed a couple episodes of Bringing up Bates. I haven’t watched much TV at all last few weeks, but I know I’ll be able to catch up later when the weather isn’t as nice and I’m inside more.
    Many blessings,

  3. I am thinking I used to rent a series of Wodehouse videos at the library. Mysteries, right? They were like filmed plays if I remember correctly. I am not sure if I read any - that would be something I would enjoy. I will also look into the first book you mentioned - sounds so encouraging and wonderful.

    Oh, I remember those morning conversations before school, too!! And I miss them so. You are so right to treasure them.

  4. I always enjoyed anything by P.G. Wodehouse. Describing the plot is just about impossible, and Jeeves always manages to rescue the idiot at the last minute. Funny, funny stuff!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
