Mission: 40 Little Things

How much is a life worth, anyway? The cost of two grande caramel macchiatos? The cost of one large pizza? The cost of a happy meal? There are times when I have thought, "I wish I could give more, but what I have to give is so little. It wouldn't even make a dent in… Continue reading Mission: 40 Little Things

I needed a special picture to use for decorating the party wall, so I dressed her up and told her to jump on the trampoline for me.

Life with Jesus is Sweet

Have you ever seen a child's face light up at the sight of sprinkles? Give them cake, and it's a nice treat. Add sprinkles and it just jumped a thousand points on the awesomeness meter. I'm a sprinkle lover myself. Everything's better with sprinkles! Sometimes I add sprinkles to my children's oatmeal, just to see… Continue reading Life with Jesus is Sweet
