Things I’ve Tried Lately that I’ve Heard People Talking About

I’ve tried a few new things lately and I would like to share with you my thoughts and opinions about each of them. Let’s get to it. Cauliflower Rice Everyone has been talking about Cauliflower Rice. I tried this out of curiosity because I’ve been trying to mix things up in the kitchen, but I…

Tips For Sharing Your Faith (Part 2)

A few months ago, I shared a post about how sharing the Gospel was an area of struggle for me. Through that struggle and many mistakes along the way, I have learned a few simple steps that have made the process easier and less stressful. ┬áBecause it IS the most joyous news in the world…why…

Staying in the Word this Summer

Somehow the more time I have on my hands, the less I am in the Bible. A huge part of this due to being out of my routine. Like a toddler on a tight sleep and nap schedule, when things change or my routine is interrupted, I find myself in all kinds of ┬ápanic when…

Our Great Debate Topics in Marriage (And Why They Don’t Matter)

Something I didn’t know about my husband before we got married is that he will not kill bugs; instead, he sets them free. I never imagined I would be living in some sort of wildlife preserve, but alas, Max just carefully removed a giant stink bug from my Kate Spade purse, opened our front door…

My Struggle with Sharing the Gospel: Part 1

As a kid, I took my job of sharing my faith very seriously, and with the finesse and tact of a bull in a China shop. In third grade, I told my very best friend at the time that if she didn’t read her Bible, she was going to hell. I’m sure there was a…

Lessons Through My Kitchen Tile

Recently I have been fixated on how much I can’t stand our kitchen tile. The tile is a shade of white that never looks clean. The grout between the oversized tiles is uneven, discolored and dirty. Since it is light in color, every speck of dirt, ground of coffee and morsel of food shows up…

What I’m Tired of Hearing As a Newlywed

“How’s married life?” is a question that my husband and I are asked almost daily as we journey through our first few months of being newlyweds. (Tuesday was our 4 month anniversary, but who keeps track of that stuff?) Well meaning people want to know how things are going, but after months of hearing almost exactly…

The View From Knollview Street

I live on Knollview Street. A few weeks ago, my husband was in Arizona so I spent some time alone in the house. I actually enjoyed the quiet. Don’t misunderstand that- the house was not quiet because Max was not there to talk; the house was quiet because Max was not there for me to…

Counting Chins: 3 Years Later

Today marks the 3 year anniversary of blogging on this website. If that wasn’t exciting enough, tomorrow is the 2 year anniversary of the first time I ever met my husband. It’s a big week for me. SO much has changed in 3 years. For starters, to the relief of all my friends and family,…
