Overflow of Harvest… Brian, Emma, and I had the stomach bug pretty bad last week…Brian and I worked together as a team to serve and pour out to our kids, but we both felt sick and weary. Lewis and Hannah, you see, were not sick! ….I have come to accept a few unchanging factors about […]
Category: Discipleship Training and FUN Ideas for Littles
There really is no other way to put it. My days feel like I am running a marathon…with my sweet little bed welcoming me at night. Things I am thankful for: I LOVE my Emma. Her two-toothed grin and sparkling blue eyes light up with joy. Her giggles bring unending joy. She brings peace to […]
Bring In, Build Up, Send Out!!!
This is the Fort Leavenworth Chapel Community motto and I have adopted it as my own for our family!!! This is my parenting and homeschooling goal—to BRING THEM IN…to draw our childrens’ hearts close to our hearts, with the Lord as our guide in discernment and love, TO BUILD THEM UP–in truth and wisdom–God’s Word, […]
Fisher of Men.
My not-so-little boy is giving me lots of sweet moments to share in praising God and learning about Him together….and moments of just pure awe at the boy God is growing him into.

Trip to the Top of Mount Blackie!
I wanted to take Lew Lew to the top of Mount Blackie the other day, because he has been asking to go again since his cousins left in April. He loves to hike and had fun hiking with daddy on their camping trip to Big Bear too. Daddy said Lewis was a trooper and hiked […]
The past week has just been exhausting for me for some reason. Each and every day has been a struggle to physically and emotionally get through. My body keeps crying out and today I actually fell asleep on Lewis. He woke me with a kiss and said, “Wake up Mommy!” He learned very well from […]
Beauty around Fort Irwin :-)
A few days ago, the kids and I set around post to SEE His beauty around post. We looked for crosses to remind us of Him, and for beauty everywhere we went. We found lots 🙂
More than conquerors!
The last few days were tough in parenting, but as friends prayed, and God gave guidance and a huge dose of His spirit to my children (thank-you for that Lord!) 🙂 , today brought forth beauty and joy! As I watched my kids share their toys this morning, and watched my loving son…who gets a […]
