Fairy Rings

While I pray for rain in other parts of this country, we’ve had a lot of it around here. So much that mushrooms are popping up everywhere in a way I haven’t seen in the seven years I’ve lived here. 🙂 My dad made sure to point out the fairy rings to my girls.

Provincial Life

But actually thinking about her a second, since I just started watching the live action movie for the first time, what’s her existential problem?! Provincial life?!

My Brother Lives in Heaven

After my post looking for a good Lutheran children’s book dealing with small sibling loss, I got my hands on just that! A great big thanks to the Lutherans at According to Your Word for writing and selling it! (You may be familiar with them for their free resources  for catechism, worship, and the liturgy).

You know what’s scarier than looking back through your email inbox? Looking back through your neglected blog drafts. Yikes!

Nooks and crannies, folks. Dark closets. Crumpled notes. <shiver>

Even a little bit of writing

Hello! Today I’m quoting something from a health program I’m participating in (Omada). Here’s hoping it doesn’t break copyright! This post is purely for educational purposes! 🙂 Anyway, before you read the paragraph, read just this little bit: “[S]cience has shown that even a little bit of writing helps you gain clarity, reduce stress, and deal with challenges more effectively.”
