Soup Day

I don’t know about you, but this church worker family is still laying pretty low. Sure, we’re back to t-ball and softball, classes, etc., but half the kids want to sleep all day and I daresay the adults would do some dozing, too, if they could. So today’s post is a bit on today’s soup day.

Passion Book

Hi! I’m back and I’m sure happy about it. 🙂 But let me tell you, it sure is nice to remember that I’m first and foremost a multitasking mom/writer rather than a blogger. I’m in a MUCH better position with my other projects, and now my head is back in the game for blogging and my usual other stuff, too. In today’s post, I get to share with you another wonderful free Lutheran resource. Rev. Andrew Richard (who has also shared a great assortment of resources, including a thirty-day devotional book on marriage) has put together a Passion Book available here.
