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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Children Are a Privilege

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Parenting (2 Responds)

Chloe reading to us. This morning we had medical appointments to get to. I should have gotten our things ready the night before but I didn’t. {Isn’t that often the case?!?} The morning was a little rushed and hairy. By the time I got all three children into the van, put Isaac’s wheelchair in and […]

Why Are Family Traditions Important?

Posted by Jennifer under Faith, Keeper of Home, Parenting, Teaching Tots (No Respond)

Your Family Has Traditions Whether or not you set out to create them, your family has traditions. Some you have intentionally continued on, having had them passed down to you, some you may have purposely started with your family and others you have cultivated by your unintentional actions or inaction. Why Traditions? Traditions, of course, […]

Your Choices Won’t Let Me

Photo Credit Sky Noir If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? ~Matthew 7:11 My pastor preached on the promises of God throughout the year last year. I found it encouraging […]

Raising Money for an Orphanage

Posted by Jennifer under Parenting, Teaching Tots (No Respond)

In the spring Chloe asked about having a bake sale. Of course the summer whizzed past and we were into fall. She asked again, and we made the plans. Chloe (6) was going to handle the bake sale side of things and John (5) was going to man an ice tea station. We would put […]
