Captured by Amazing Lenses

Captured by Amazing Lenses

It all starts with a trip to the zoo carrying in your hand a camera and your new amazing lenses. Now you are ready to capture moments that will forever remind you of the beauty you had a chance to lay your eyes on. And God sees that. Birds from all over the world; animals you never imagined to exist. One question absorbs your concentration: What is the story behind their pretty colors and shapes? ...[Read More]

BEST DAY Ever: Number 2673

BEST DAY Ever: Number 2673

I am such a wimp. Seriously. Who knew I’d be living in The Last Frontier, embracing and relishing the cold and snow and doing things like flying four-wheelers down a narrow, bumpy, muddy trail through moose and bear country, then pausing said wild ride to pick blueberries on the trail with my fellow female trailblazers. If you had told me I’d hold fairly limited qualms regarding the use of h ...[Read More]

It’s Time to Raise Your Ebenezer

It’s Time to Raise Your Ebenezer

It’s been a tough week, hasn’t it? The media has bombarded us with stories of hate and violence and fear. People behaving badly and taking out their rage and anger on the innocent and the helpers. The news and Facebook leave us empty and confused and worried. Our brows furrow and deepen as we ask ourselves the question, “Could this happen here? Has the world gone mad? Is this the end?” And then we ...[Read More]

Bold Peace

Bold Peace

Bold Peace A time such as this You were born for a time such as this. Right now a storm is brewing and it’s breaking forth. It doesn’t matter where you fall in your beliefs the storm is still here. It’s scattered and it’s messy. I live in Lafayette, Louisiana and it’s as though I can hear the thunder from the distance just down the interstate in Baton Rouge. Signaling a storm that is raging. And i ...[Read More]

Are there Icebergs in Australia?

Are there Icebergs in Australia?

One of my all time favorite books on THE PLANET is a kid’s book. No surprise there, right? Don’t laugh. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a must-have for any personal library. You’d be amazed how many hidden gems you can uncover in a short story geared to second graders. Over the past six months, I’ve had more than my share of stinkin’ hard days. Mornings where I’ve wo ...[Read More]

You’re Wrong, Dr. Seuss

You’re Wrong, Dr. Seuss

Dear Dr. Seuss and my friends in Cyberspace, My cousin gave me your book Oh! The Places You’ll Go! when I graduated from Lafayette High School in 1994. (Yes. I’m old. But forty is fun, ladies.) I loved it. I read it to my classroom kids when I graduated college and became a teacher. I’ve read it countless times over the years to my children. In the past, I’ve even shared it with university s ...[Read More]

Spring Clean Up: #Help!

Spring Clean Up: #Help!

I can hear you say, “Oh, no, here comes mom again!” and you type on your device: “#help”. Every girl dreads the announcement of another family activity. This one may not be as fun as going to the beach, going to the park and grilling hot dogs, or heading on an amazing boat ride. It’s spring clean up day! Can’t we just sit outside, grab a good book and enjoy the beautiful we ...[Read More]

To Hear or Not to Hear – That’s the Question.

To Hear or Not to Hear – That’s the Question.

Fear can cripple you or it can make you stronger. It can even do a little bit of both. Fear is not of God, but God can use it for good. Fear led the midwives to allow Moses, a Jewish baby boy, to live when Pharaoh had ordered all the baby boys to be killed – an attempt to eliminate the promised deliverer for the Jews in Egypt (true story in the Bible). Fear led Joseph to take Mary and Jesus to Egy ...[Read More]

I Still Fear the Dark. What’s Wrong with Me?

I Still Fear the Dark. What’s Wrong with Me?

When we hear a little girl talk about her little world, we find an overflow of imaginative pictures working together in an amazing way. Maybe I should call this little world a big adventurous world. For instance, do you remember as a little girl, playing with your dolls under the dining table, naming each one of them, fixing the house with a bed made out of a shoebox cover, a kitchen towel as a bl ...[Read More]
