{{The Days of}} Liddi’s Birth Story

{{The Days of}} Liddi’s Birth Story

39 weeks Friday, February 13, I leave my MOMs group, assuring them I’ll be at the next meeting…WITH a baby. • That evening, I have many contractions. None too hard, but enough that I start thinking Maybe it’s tonight! I go for an 8-block walk after the kids went to bed. And have no further contractions. Drat. Proof that my coat […]

The Spirit’s stirrings in a young heart.

The Spirit’s stirrings in a young heart.

A couple weeks ago, a little purple plastic gun showed up at our house. I actually recognized it, so when I saw Corban playing with it, I thought it was a boy reunited with his long-lost toy. But when James noticed it during supper that night, he knew for sure it didn’t belong to us. He […]

When the life group retreats.

When the life group retreats.

Well, I started this post exactly two weeks ago. Then I took a break to blink and just opened my eyes today! Actually, I started working on a book I officially wrote in college and forgot all about photos and blogs and funny stories. After reading it with adult eyes, I realized there wasn’t one.single.word […]

The week where God rocks {and I weep}.

Last week was an emotional week for me. To be fair, I hear that pregnant women are more emotional in general. But if this has been my most puke-filled pregnancy, it’s also been the most tear-filled. After three days of tears, we climbed into bed and I whispered my deepest fear to James, “Do you think […]

When the gift points to the Giver.

When the gift points to the Giver.

Have you ever been given a gift so big, so extravagant that you could only cry in response? Could only stare in shock, no words to break the moment? Could only think, Surely, this is not from man but from the Lord! We just did. We haven’t been able to save for my dream piano ever […]

We’ve been told it’s about time.

We’ve been told it’s about time.

These two little rascals are some of the sweetest siblings we know. They’re also some of the dirtiest. And they’re preparing themselves to love and dirty another little rascal this February. P.S. Just as a confession, I always nod along when the doctors say, “Oh, yes, there’s the _________.” Seriously? I must have the worst eyes […]

When women gather.

When women gather.

Grace College started a formal mentoring program Fall 2012, pairing girls at the school with older girls in the community. (I almost wrote “women” but that  makes us sound more mature and wise than we surely are;) Mary and I were partnered, and if I told you every connection we ever had, you’d just have […]

Sadly but thankfully.

Sadly but thankfully.

 Thankfully, our basement once looked like this with very little effort. Sadly, it no longer does. Thankfully, last Thursday we had a giant rainstorm, signifying the coming end of a long winter. Sadly, much of the rain and melting snow found its way in our basement. Thankfully, James had not yet used his Christmas Lowe’s […]

Reflection of the 2013

Reflection of the 2013

As we reflect on 2013, lots has changed! Jaeda learned to walk, run, talk, play, and fight with her brother. She’s had her first encounters with discipline and is figuring out what is expected of her. Corban had many accidents (maybe that will never change??), grew in his knowledge of God’s Word, was skillful in […]

A life-giving retreat with our life group

A life-giving retreat with our life group

A couple months ago, our life group had our annual fall camping discussion. (Yep, it took that much advanced planning to get us all in town on the same weekend!) But now that we’re Shaffer-less (miss you guys!), we have a whole lot less motivation to do all the WORK associated with camping…especially with so […]
