  • One of the best things about the Relevant Conference I attended last fall (now Allume Social) was the fellowship with other passionate, believing women. Imagine my excitement when they closed out the conference with the announcement of an idea to bring the fun and fellowship of a women’s conference to your own town – even…

  • My Personal Cinderalla, Please!

    The year I had my third child was the year I began dreaming the same dream over and over: I wanted a hired hand. The children outnumbered the adults and the number of arms I had. The laundry was a living thing, threatening and growing. What to feed all these little animals was a constant…

  • Best of 2011 – Time and Balance

      It all started with Amy’s book, Tell Your Time. Reading it opened my eyes to how many moments were actually available to me in a day if I would only take hold of them. I realized the goals and dreams I had as a wife, mother, friend, writer, etc. where within my reach if…

  • Relevant Highlight #2 – Connecting with Kindred Hearts

    I’m still savoring all the wonderful connections I made in the halls and comfy corners made available for the attendees at Relevant. One of my favorite memories is meeting Angie and getting to talk and pray with her for nearly an hour on Friday night. She was so encouraging and such a ‘relevant’ contact for…

  • Of Mice and Men and Pride

    Prideful thoughts are kind of like mice. You know they’re there, but must of the time they stay hidden. Until one day that prideful thought grows a little too confident and goes public, like a sleek, fat mouse, suddenly waltzing across your kitchen in broad daylight like he owns the place. This is not just…

Three small children, managing a house, cooking 3 meals a day, being a wife, running a business – so much depends on keeping it all together. Some days I feel like the Elephant in “Horton Hears a ‘Who’”…

  • Coming Back to Reality From Relevant

    I rose at 5:30 after nursing my alarm clock. (I have found an alarm clock that you can’t hate no matter what time it goes off – a warm, cuddly, rolly-polly, snuggly little boy child who has learned to call ‘mamma!’ in the morning). No, I don’t get up this early every morning – only…

  • Relevant Highlight #1

    Laura Booz was my favorite speaker, handsdown, at Relevant.  With Ann Voskamp, Amy Andrews, Lisa Jo, and so many others, how was Laura my top pick? Because she was the most relevant to me. She’s a homeschool mommy of 3, and FULL of passion! Her enthusiasm and joy made her talks some of the most…

  • The Most Memorable Moment of Relevant11

    I’ve just got back from a weekend in Harrisburg, PA, attending the Christian Women’s Blogging Conference, Relevant. It will take months to process and recount to you all the beauty, inspiration, and practical insight I received from this conference, but I simply can’t wait to share with you the Most Memorable Moment I exeprienced. No…
