May Flowers

May Flowers

May started with the most beautiful weather (weather that, really, we’ve had for most of the summer; I mean, gorgeous!) We printed the illustrations of our books and put them on display in the Performing Arts Center at the local high school. This was so much fun for me (and a lotta work for James). […]

A bird’s eye view of the last few months

A bird’s eye view of the last few months

Having a fourth child is hard. (Betcha thought I was gonna say something uplifting and inspiring. HA.) Even our great days (and there are many!) are just plain ol’ hard. So much talking, touching, needing, crying, diaper changing, sock losing, complaining, laughing, screaming, eating, messing, cleaning (I’m really tempted to keep this list going…forever. But […]

Crusoe’s First Days

Crusoe’s First Days

Guys, I’m super sorry, but this post will be short on words and looooong on photos. No time for editing! He’s already three weeks old now! And we’re all doing great. So great. In sleep, in health, in nursing, in harmony. We’re having a blast (like literally a blast…of NOISE…shew, these kids are loud). So […]

The Birth of Crusoe Conrad: NOT a Short Story

The Birth of Crusoe Conrad: NOT a Short Story

The last post ended with Saturday evening, September 10th, wondering if tonight was the night. (It wasn’t, but it was close.) The hard contractions fizzled out by evening, so we went to bed and hoped he would come soon. Sunday morning I had one hard contraction that convinced me to stay home from church. And […]

Sooo we’re having a baby?

Sooo we’re having a baby?

You likely already know this by now, buuut we’ve got Baby Steele #4 growing away! We knew we’d like one more for our family, but we couldn’t decide when. So we didn’t. We just told the Lord of our desire and asked Him to lead the way. And lead He did! I’m so thankful to […]

Writing’s in the family.

Corban and Jaeda have been feeling the work that comes with making money. They are starting to value their efforts, and, after several failed Dollar Tree purchases (failed meaning broke while we were yet in the parking lot), they’ve also come to appreciate the value of their hard-earned money…and that TJMaxx helps them stretch their […]

What can happen in two months time (when you write and speak and sell and rhyme).

Sometimes through this journey of publishing our first book, it feels slow-going. I can’t give it full-time attention. I don’t have an author website (yet). I’m limited in how many school presentations I can do. I’m struggling to get the “Look Inside the Book” feature on our Amazon listing. We don’t yet have a hardcover […]
