The guy who ruined Christmas in November

I hang my head in shame as I write this, and I know this is an overused cliché, but if I can save one parent from making this painful mistake, then he or she won’t have to experience the horrors of sucking the joy out of their children (because I have yet to meet a parent who strives to do that). You see, that’s exactly what I did. I sucked…

How do we keep young people in the church?

What would the church be like if more young people kept the faith during the teen years? Pastor Jon Nielson recently wrote an article entitled 3 Common Traits of Youth Who Don’t Leave the Church. Here’s an excerpt: “What do we do about our kids?” The group of parents sat together in my office, wiping their eyes.…

Voices from the past

A sad reality hit me the other night. As I was talking with my nephew about his deceased grandparents (and great-grandparents), it struck me that I’ve largely forgotten what their voices sounded like. I can hear them pronounce certain words and how they phrased things in my head, but that’s no way to convey that to my nephew. Before…

A king, a toilet, and a cave

One of the things we allow our girls to do as we read through the Bible, is to pull out the crayons and paper and draw something that they heard. This allows them to keep their hands busy, while soaking in the reading. One of my favorite drawings came from our Kindergartener. (And I really wish I had kept it). It was a guy, wearing a crown,…

School lunches boring already?

Are your kiddos complaining already about the boring, cold lunches that they have to take to school?   Do you take your kids shopping to get them pumped up and let them choose items to put into their lunch only to grab the same ol’ things?  Me too!  It’s so much easier to throw a PB&J sandwich in with an apple and…

Exposure therapy

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.         Philippians 4:6 Therapists at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN have developed an innovative approach to helping children overcome anxiety.  It’s called Exposure Therapy. Exposure…

Dying to self…not my cup of tea

The Tea Cups. One of my favorite “must dos” when hanging out at an amusement park. Oh, but Tea Cups are just a warmup for me. I am the consummate theme park “fearless warrior”. I can ride anything at any time…and multiple times in a row if given the chance. For you see, I am called to lead the family through…

Why Your Ex-husband Matters

The headlights were shining on the bare garage wall in front of us. When my mom, brother, and I left for the weekend- that same wall was covered with dark brown pegboard, holding neatly arranged hooks that my dad used to hold his tools.  Now they were all gone- and instantly I knew he was gone, too.  While I don’t remember much of my…
