Dancing with My Father (Booking It)

This year we’re Booking It on LifeasMOM. It’s an online book club designed to get you off the computer, phone, and boob tube and into a book. Reading is an adventure! You learned this long ago. But, in our older years, it is tempting to forget. On the 10th of each month, we’re discussing an assigned […]

Booking It with Mandi Ehman, Kristen Welch, and Andrew Peterson

Booking It! The July Update

I’m hanging my head in shame this month. There’s just been so much going on that I haven’t been “booking it” as much as I thought I would. I started two books that I didn’t finish before they were due back at the library. I enjoyed the first third of My Life in France by […]

Father’s Day Gift Idea: 8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back

About four years ago my husband was diagnosed with a bulging disk. I was pregnant with FishChick at the time, and it was a scary time watching him practically paralysed with pain.
