Book Review: {Eleanor and Hick}

Eleanor and Hick

By, Susan Quinn

I actually finished this book a while back, but it still sits vividly in my mind. I still don’t quite know what to think about it. I found it a fascinating read and about a woman I didn’t previously know really anything about. And shamefacedly the only thing I thought, was that she looked a bit frumpy for a first lady. What a judgement to make when I didn’t know her and hadn’t read a thing about her. Purely a judgement based on a few photographs I’d seen. Continue reading “Book Review: {Eleanor and Hick}”

Paronychia

It’s been a while since I’ve had one of these infections. My daughter however, gets them way too often. She is a ‘picker’ and is always pulling off scabs, peeling fingernails and the list could go on! Continue reading “Paronychia”

Teaching from Rest

Rest has been my theme this year. Not inactivity or laziness, but rest. Even in the chaos of life, the challenging and the difficult; to truly rest. I’ve worked hard to let go of the to do list more and not be married to my detailed plan for the entire year… page by page of each subject planned out. Continue reading “Teaching from Rest”

Teething

Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated

Do I dare even open this can of worms? Why yes, I do!…

I will start off to say that we have chosen NOT to vaccinate our children. As the parents of the wonderful kids we’ve been given, we are given the right and privilege to care for them in the best way we know how. With our research, study, and prayer we have decided what we believe is best for OUR family. It is NOT my right or privilege to decide what is right for YOUR family. That is your right and responsibility! Continue reading “Vaccinated vs Unvaccinated”

Book Review: {The Book Thief}

The Book Thief

By, Markus Zusak

This book has been on my “Need to Read” list for probably two or three years.  I’ve always enjoyed historical fiction from WWII era. I knew I would like this book, but I also knew I was going to need to be ready for whatever this book held.  Somehow I knew it wasn’t going to be a light read. Continue reading “Book Review: {The Book Thief}”

Book Review: {Far As the Curse Is Found}

Far as the Curse Is Found: Searching for God in Infertility, Miscarriage, and Stillbirth
Far As the Curse Is Found
Abigail Waldron

What a joy to read this book and to know this author. If you knew her, this book would mean so much more. She is kind, generous, loving, gracious, strong and also honest, humble, vulnerable and weak in this book. Continue reading “Book Review: {Far As the Curse Is Found}”

Pork Tikka Masala

I know, I know. Chicken Tikka Masala is the dish… not pork. But I started making the dish and didn’t have chicken, but I did have pulled pork in the freezer! It had some liver mixed in, but no seasonings added… perfect. It made making this dish that much simpler. Continue reading “Pork Tikka Masala”

Hind’s Feet on High Places: {Book Review}

Hind’s Feet on High Places
By, Hannah Hurnard

It took me almost a year to read this book. I only read a few pages each morning at the end of my devotions. It’s really an amazing allegory about the Christian life much like Pilgrim’s Progress. God really used this book to encourage me through difficult times and to let me know that He is working even though all of life felt senseless and pointless and meaningless. Continue reading “Hind’s Feet on High Places: {Book Review}”
