Hello readers. I know you come to this blog because of my deep spiritual insights (not that I would ever say that about myself, but it is widely known around the world that others say that about me).
I had yet another life-altering revelation this morning as I was reading the Word of God. You may need to sit down for this one, as the power of the truth behind what I saw might knock you off your feet. Continue reading
Wondering where I’ve been for the past month?
I got a job!
After 13 years of being a professional daytime TV watcher (aka stay-at-home-mom), it’s time to bring home the bacon. I don’t think I’ll fry it up in a pan though. Too much grease. I’ll microwave it surrounded by paper towels to absorb the excess fat. Continue reading
“Blah, blah, blah. Are you listening?” Head nod. “Blah, blah, blah…”
That’s what I heard when my parents were trying to teach me a lesson when I was a kid.
Now that I’m a parent, I’m pretty sure that’s how my wonderful words of wisdom get translated in their heads as well. My words go in one ear and out the other.
Or do they?
Here’s your nugget for today. Give it a think!
Does submitting to authority make you weak?
Confession: this post is three parts brag, one part nugget.
My 13-year-old son was getting off the bus from a week long school trip. He and his bud were walking towards the group of eagerly waiting parents when his friend said to him, “Don’t you hate it when you haven’t seen your mom in a while and she grabs you and hugs you to death.”
My son looked at him and said, “Actually dude, that’s exactly what I want. I can’t wait to hug her and not let go.”
Hey Kids! I’ve got great news for ya. You won’t always have to obey your parents!
Yuup. It’s true. I promise – you’ll be free soon enough.
Hey Parents! I’ve got terrible news for ya. You’re kids won’t always have to obey you!
“I’m on your side.”
Are these words for…
1. Picking dodgeball teams? Nope.
2. Political endorsement? Nope.
3. Hiding behind the dude with the bigger muscles? Wrong again.
These four little words simply contain the best parenting advice I have ever received.

If you’ve ever wondered why kids are so drawn to video games – wonder no more. My 13-year-old son is here to tell you the answer with a poem he wrote for school:
Video games are the best.
When you see the controller waiting
for you like a piece of chocolate.
Not knowing what game to play.
As a parent, I’m always trying to teach my kids some lesson or another. We’re supposed to, right? It says so right there on page 36 in the Parenting Manual (page 2 in the Cliff Notes version).
But it seems the more I talk, the less they listen.
Jesus has many names in the Bible. Rabbi is one that I often forget. It means teacher.
So after my kids had yet another conflict (which resulted in an episode of R.A.W. in our living room), I decided to let God be the teacher for once. Continue reading
