Booklook Review: The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party

Maddy loves anything “princess”, so I was hopeful that this would be a great addition to our library and would meet her requirements for a good “princess” read. “The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party” is all about Princess Abby and Princess Emma who are getting ready for their birthday party. Both girls spend time […]

Golden Birthday

I have been waiting for this day for a long time! Today I am 25 on the 25th of August. To be honest, it kind of snuck up on me—when I was younger I dreamt about this day, and in the past few years (and especially crazy months), it simply escaped my mind. This day […]

Lessons from the Dixons: “Choices”

Today has been a very strange Monday for me.  Our schedule at school was thrown off quite a bit between testing and other special events, as well as one of our students being absent.  (When you only have 8, 1 absent makes a pretty significant difference.)  Our packing is moving along, and my parents will […]

I miss you. A Whole ‘Nother Meaning

Continued Provision

Going through this time of faith stretching and discipline has helped me to focus on seeing God’s hand at work, and has truly emphasized the details that I otherwise may have missed in day to day.  Here are some of the larger provisions that the Lord has already granted us: Partial Airfare to Korea (not […]


The following verse has always stood out to me, and I think I understand it better after having gone through the past few weeks of our life.  (Another story for another post)  This passage comes after Christ was born… Luke 2:19 “But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” The Greek […]

Hodge Podge

Just a hodge podge of thought on recent life… Believer’s lives should be reminiscent of that obnoxious, loud, yet successful street-side promotional announcer: a constant, boisterous declaration of their God in all His sufficiency & glory!  What a humbling thought when the Lord allowed me to visualize myself with a megaphone, and truly how few […]
