Can we ever find true Happiness?

I had the most profound discussion with my daughter, in the car, about a week ago. I was completely blown away by her response and it got me thinking and processing my own perception of what she said. I don’t exactly remember how the topic came up – I think it may have been a song or conversation that came on the radio. But the basics of what we heard was that this person was saying ‘something’ will make them completely happy. Continue reading “Can we ever find true Happiness?”

Happy Birthday Tim Feder

Today is my husband’s birthday! He is now a well rounded 40! That’s just the weirdest thing to say. When we look at each other we always can’t believe we’re as old as we are. We used to look at these numbers and think that those were the beginning stages of getting old…….. well I get it now. 40 isn’t old and it sure isn’t the start of it. I think the term “old” has to be used so lightly now because it’s always so relative. Anyway, before I go down the insane rabbit hole of giving my opinion on age – let me gush over this man I call best friend and lover. Continue reading “Happy Birthday Tim Feder”

Faith vs Fear – how do I even?

Ok, so I’m still slightly freaked out by all of the snatching, kidnapping, school letters and all round bad news about child abductions. Like I wrote about child safety we need to do our best to educate ourselves, and our kids, about being safe. But, can we really live our lives like this? constantly looking over our shoulders, one eye open and feel anxious? To this – I shout out, “NO!! No more!” Continue reading “Faith vs Fear – how do I even?”

Meet “Our Special Story” friends – having friends with a special needs child

It’s funny how often the first thing I want to do as a parent is whine a little about my kids and how tired I am after a rough night or whatever the case may be. It’s weird really, because honestly which parent isn’t having some sort of a hard time. Then, just when you think that having all three of your kids smothered in chicken pox for a week is hard work (with a 10 month old teething with a runny stomach-it was hectic guys!) then you meet people like our wonderful friends Josh and Amberley Klinkenberg. Dude’s!! Continue reading “Meet “Our Special Story” friends – having friends with a special needs child”

Being a “Ministry” wife – 6 Wives share

Time is honestly flying by! It’s like, March already. Can somebody pinch me please? While I pull myself towards myself – let’s just dive in shall we. I have been wanting to do this kind of post for a very, very, very, VERY long time. I have been playing with the idea like a cat with a ball of wool. It’s been one of those that I haven’t been too sure about and also, will it be well received? Do people really want to know about this kind of thing…. So after much pondering, and running it by a few people I decided to just do it and see what happens. Not to really get a response, but to see if it will begin to help some people.

Ok, I hear you – what idea is it Shaveh? Continue reading “Being a “Ministry” wife – 6 Wives share”

I’m Human, Ok! – but He has my back

Have you ever had a season where you just don’t feel the wheels are on properly? You know that feeling? It’s kind of overwhelming and out of control but at the same time you know your life is just going to just keep on moving ahead and continue until you grapple and gain control again? Anyone relate?
