Roasted Vegetable Blender Pasta Sauce

(Feel free to skip the ramble and scroll down to the bottom for the recipe). One of the things that I miss the most since moving to the island is the plentiful and inexpensive produce that was plentiful on the mainland. We have a few great supermarkets here, but everything is imported and not always… Continue reading Roasted Vegetable Blender Pasta Sauce

52 Weeks of Stillness

I sit here on this very first day of a brand new year, sipping my coffee in a favorite cup (they're all my favorites) and reflecting on all that the recent years have brought. I wonder with some excitement--and I confess a little bit of fear--what will this new year bring? I try to effectively… Continue reading 52 Weeks of Stillness

The Dirty Truth of Missions

By dirty I mean dirt. And mud. And stinky smells. So much of it! Everywhere! In my house. On my floors. All over my children. I have never faced so much dirt on a daily basis or at such an extreme level. RV life had nothing on Honduras.

Home Is…

Recently, on Instagram, I saw a hashtag game called “Move it Up Monday”, where you are supposed to find an old photo of a pretty spot in your house and repost it to inspire others in their home decor. I thought that sounded like fun, but as I searched through my photos, I realized I… Continue reading Home Is…

Though No One Join…

A few nights ago, we sat in yet another unfamiliar church, but we were singing the familiar words to a well-loved hymn. I have decided to follow Jesus, I have decided to follow Jesus... We got to the last verse..."though no one join me, still I will follow..." and the words stood out to me… Continue reading Though No One Join…

Easter and a Birthday in the Little House

Our Lily was due on Easter Sunday, but she was born a few days early, on 4/5/06. This meant that this year, her birthday landed on Easter! She did not mind sharing her birthday with the holiday, in fact she was pretty thrilled about it. To make the day special for her, we let her… Continue reading Easter and a Birthday in the Little House

Our 10th wedding anniversary is May 28th of this year. Wow, ten years has flown! It has been the best ten years of my life, and it just keeps getting better.
