Pointing Out Pictures in the Clouds

I love clouds. We’ve lived in Toronto, in New York State, in Southern California and in Manitoba. We have traveled through most of the United States, a little in Mexico and I have been to Europe. Compared to all the places I have lived or experienced, Manitoba is by far the winner win it comes to clouds and sky. The skies can be a richer blue than anywhere else and the clouds have so much more depth! A few years {Read More}

Sweet Ideas for Mother’s Day

Need some inspiration for Mother’s Day gifts? Mom’s Love Rub Jan Nellis’ creamy soaps, scrubs, and candles are simply glorious. I have used the peppermint soap and cannot rave enough about it. Made with goat’s milk and a light mint fragrance, this soap is creamy and moisturizing. I love, love the scent. It is not strong, and smells good enough to eat! There is also a line of massage candles, a Dead Sea Salt Foot Scrub, and a variety of {Read More}

Mentoring Marriage

It’s not unusual for younger women to ask older women for some advice on marriage. Sometimes friends ask friends, nieces ask aunts, granddaughters ask grandmothers, daughters ask moms. It’s natural for women to want strong, healthy marriages and to talk to others about how to do it better. As the older woman, one thing to guard against here is husband-bashing. It starts out simply – they’re just describing what life is like at home. But there is a fine line {Read More}

A Simple Christmas: Muffin Tin Advent Calendar

While speaking at a recent fall retreat, I participated in a craft session. I’m not particularly crafty. I would like to be. Everything I make looks homemade and nothing like the beautiful creations on Etsy–or at friends’ homes. I am glad I joined in this craft project and can now share how to make a muffin tin advent calendar with everyone today. My only regret is not making this when my kids were younger. Here’s how to make it: Supplies {Read More}

Exposed: A Novel about Porn Addiction

The book arrived in my mailbox beautifully packaged with rose petals. The feminine touch was evident!  The cover of the book was delicate and yet intriguing. I’d promised to review the book, but now I was anxious and eager to read it. Ashley Weis wrote Exposed: A Novel as a fiction story based on her own testimony of hurt, betrayal and trauma due to the exposure of her husband’s porn addiction.  In the book, main character Ally Graham – a {Read More}

Spiritual Antihistamines

It had been a while since I’d had any gluten.  (It’s amazing how quickly one can forget the terrible times I’d endured.)  As I reached for the golden glazed bit of sweet heaven I told myself, “It’s just a little bit.  Surely it won’t be that bad.  I probably won’t even notice I’ve eaten it!” My prediction held true until bedtime.  I took stock of my health and figured it would be safe to snitch another.  Surely if I was {Read More}
