As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

ARE YOU AN EMBARASSMENT TO YOUR KIDS?
We watched a Billie Cystal/Alan King movie the other day called, “Memories of Me,” (1988.) It was intended to be a comedy. The drama of the movie was more intense for my husband and me. Within this comedy, we saw … Continue reading
PARENTING WITH THE THREE “R”S
I’m an old woman and still remember hearing the philosophy that the three “R”s were all we needed to learn in order to succeed as students. I think the person who came up with that concept needed some education on … Continue reading
PARENTING ISNT FOR WIMPS
As our children grow from infants to toddlers, you will see a lot of your own habits and idiosyncrasies come to life in them. This is a time to really be a good role model for them. They’re like little … Continue reading
PARENTING – GETTING DOWN IN THE TRENCHES
I don’t mean to mislead you by my title today. Raising a family doesn’t mean you’re going to be fighting a never-ending battle with your offspring. It does mean you will be spending your time much differently than you did … Continue reading
SO, YOU WANT TO BE A PARENT?
It all seems so precious and perfect. A couple marries, they have a child, then another and maybe more. What could be better? Well, I am certainly not an expert on parenting, even though I did birth three babies that … Continue reading
NATIONAL CREAM PUFF DAY
I just happened upon this little tidbit of information. Today is National Cream Puff Day. I am originally from the state of Wisconsin and transplanted to Minnesota in 1973, so I truly consider myself a Minnesotan. Whenever the Green Bay … Continue reading
My mother was a part of the Greatest Generation – those who held tightly to their spiritual beliefs, weren’t afraid to go to war to defend their country or to stay at home and work for the war effort – people … Continue reading
BEING A MOM – EXPECTATION & REALITY
So, you’re having a baby! One of the most fulfilling, life-changing, magnificent, delightful, loving events in a woman’s life. It will definitely change you forever. When you first get the news that you’re going to carry a child within your … Continue reading
WHAT IS A FAMILY?
“Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.” James Dobson Having or being … Continue reading
GOD, BLESS THE LITTLE LAMBS
Soon, the mad rush for school supplies, new clothes, electronic devices, dorm supplies, and the thought of packing school lunches will settle down and kids will return to classrooms. Their backpacks will be full, their new duds will match their … Continue reading
Mother’s Day has come and gone, but I’m concerned about how much parenting has changed over my lifetime. I’ve seen women go through a time of total submission to complete domination in the course of only some fifty years. They … Continue reading
LAUGH WITH YOUR CHILDREN
I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Queen of England yucking it up with her kid, but there it is. Even though the Queen had little to do with the actual parenting of her children,, at least she laughedwith them … Continue reading
WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A GOOD DAD?
I know opinions about fatherhood have changed drastically over the past 30 or 40 years and I would like to address that today. Somehow, maybe as a result of the feminist movement, men have been lowered in value and the role of … Continue reading
GOD, THE FATHER OF ALL
Jesus made a point of using parables (earthly stories with a heavenly meaning) to illustrate His Father’s plan for us in our own lives. In the story of the Prodigal Son, we hear of a man who had two sons. … Continue reading
Father’s Day will be here in a week and I have a lot to say about dads. So I’m beginning with this one. It’s a rerun from several years ago, but I think it applies today, even more than it … Continue reading
I’M A GREAT GRANDMOTHER
The following post was written five years ago when my granddaughter was just starting high school and they had a program designed to help young women learn about parenting. The program included a robotic doll that responded with crying when … Continue reading
FAMOUS LAST MOM WORDS
There is something about the language we use as mothers. I think it begins as a form of tradition. I’m talking about the “clean your room” phrase for one. Then there’s the one about not making silly faces or your … Continue reading
WEDNESDAY WISDOM – SUPER HERO MOM
Fortunately, I was young when I had my children. As we age our patience runs out – our energy wanes – our tolerance is pretty much dead – and our thoughts can’t keep up with the speed of technology, much less children. … Continue reading
FROM WORRIER TO WARRIOR
I’d consider myself a worrier. It may have something to do with being a fixer as well. In my growing up years, I felt a responsibility for my baby sister. I took it on myself to tell her what to … Continue reading
WHAT’S IT LIKE BEHIND YOUR FRONT DOOR?
I think we all go through times when we’re living in the middle of a huge mess. Maybe you didn’t have time to do the dishes. There are magazines from twenty years ago stacked in a corner. Your bed is … Continue reading
