  • 02/15/13--04:44: In Praise of the Manly Man
  • My husband and I had a lovely Valentine’s Day yesterday. He brought me roses and a huge box of chocolates, then took me out for dinner and a movie. I wrote him a poem. It’s not the first poem I’ve given him for Valentine’s Day, and it probably won’t be the last. Although I wrote […]

  • 03/31/13--02:46: This is the Tomb
  • “Do not be afraid. I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” (Matthew 28:5-6) What follows is an excerpt from a children’s Easter book I’ve recently written, which is to be published by […]

  • 06/14/13--05:26: A Hero in the Making
  • When my husband and I first married, we had more time than money, so much of our gift-giving consisted of poems and short stories we wrote for one another. I guess old habits die hard, because we still fall back on handwritten gifts from time to time. Since Father’s Day is just around the corner, […]

    Since my new book was released last week, I decided to make a printable coupon collection to go along with it. I thought it might be something wives might enjoy slipping into their husband’s Christmas stocking — and something their husbands would be happy to receive. My own husband got a sneak peek at the […]

  • In an effort to keep the focus on Christ at Christmas, I offer you this poem as a humble reminder of the miracle we celebrate this season. May it ever echo in our hearts! Heaven Song A girl once lived in Galilee– Let Heaven and nature sing– Whom God sent Gabriel to see. Let Heaven […]

    I’ve been pondering what to get my husband this year for Valentine’s Day, as it’s only a week away. In years past, I’ve written him poems, like this or this. And once I stitched him a silk-embroidered bed pillow, which has been broadcasting the same secret message for more than a decade now. But just […]

  • 02/16/14--06:01: A Plea for Perseverance
  • When I was in high school I dated a boy who would go all-out for Valentine’s Day: balloon bouquets, long-stemmed red roses, boxes of chocolates, candlelight dinners. Every day for the week, some grand new token of his affection would be delivered to my doorstep. But then, Valentine’s would be over, and that would be […]

    Since we all know that laughter is the best medicine, and since every April Fool’s prank I’ve ever pulled has backfired, I thought I’d celebrate today by spreading a little sunshine instead of playing tricks. Here are a dozen pins I’ve spotted on Pinterest that have actually made me laugh out loud. I hope you’ll […]

  • 04/11/14--07:30: Let Them Know
  • This month, we’ll be celebrating the greatest love story ever told. I know Good Friday is still a week away, but I finished the following video a little early and couldn’t wait to share it with you. For almost eighty years, Disney has been captivating our imaginations with beautifully rendered fairy stories. But as J.R.R. […]

  • The children and I have been working on this little surprise for Father’s Day, based on the theme song from The Lego Movie. Of course, it’s almost impossible to keep a secret in a household our size. Since Daddy already found out about it, I decided to publish a week early. You’ll have to excuse […]

  • 11/27/14--05:27: Living with a Thankful Heart
  • We need to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Giving thanks is something that we are commanded repeatedly in Scripture to do. Obviously, it is important to God for His children to be grateful. Space won’t permit me to list all the references here, but consider this small sampling of verses: • “In everything give thanks; […]

  • 01/01/15--21:25: Never Enough Time?
  • My husband and I are both list makers by nature, but we approach our lists differently. I’m all about the details, which is why I’ve been known to start the New Year with as many as seven type-written pages of goals and resolutions. My husband, on the other hand, tries to boil down his goals […]

    In what is becoming an annual tradition, my family helped me create another Easter video over spring break this year. (You can watch last year’s video here.) This new one is a cover of Meghan Trainor’s catchy song, “All About That Bass” — but with lyrics I don’t mind my little ones singing around the […]

    10 Resolutions for a Happier New Year

    I love New Year’s and the fresh start January represents, so I normally kick it off with a list of resolutions as long as my arm. Some of my goals are specific and easily quantifiable: write a letter a day, read a book a week, lose 50 pounds before my son gets married in May. […]

    On Creme Filled Donuts and Other Causes for Celebration

    Have you ever noticed there’s a quirky holiday for just about everything under the sun? My family once tried to think of something outlandish that didn’t already have a commemorative day assigned to it, and we couldn’t do it. Every implausible idea we googled was already a thing! National Make a Hat Day. Dogs in […]

    On remembering to say thank you

    Well, we survived another Halloween. Rain kept all but the most determined trick-or-treaters away this year, but close to a hundred costumed cuties still showed up on our doorstep begging for candy. The majority of them thanked us sweetly as we dropped the treats into their buckets and bags, although it took a little parental […]

    Spring is here at last, and I’m so thankful for that fact. This season inspires lots of people to work in their gardens. You can see the beautiful fruit of their labors all over town as bulbs bloom and well-tended shrubs burst into color. Spring rouses other folks to exercise. I’ve been seeing a steady ...
