Pastors’ Wives Getting Away

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016


I was so happy to get to spend time with some good friends a couple weeks ago at a retreat for pastors’ wifies. Most of us live here in Nebraska, some came all the way from Minnesota and Iowa.

It was a nice break from all the packing and moving the day after we moved into the parsonage!

motherhood mother like a mitten

Anna at Sister, Daughter, Mother, Wife asked if I’d write an article on Motherhood for her blog, which I did. Such an honor.

You can find that article posted over there today!

Summertime Things

Thursday, July 24th, 2014


Last Friday I turned 30 for the seventh time (don’t ask me how I remember that) and Phil gave me this, a vacuumed living room!

It was a Happy Birthday.


He took me out and gave some other gifties too but I don’t have pictures of all that.


Ephraim gave me this, toddling around in big pink fuzzy slippers.


I’m Okay

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

I wasn’t going to write about this, I really would just rather forget it ever happened, but I figured I’d let you all know that THIS happened Monday:


I was headed home from grocery shopping in the city. The roads got icy pretty fast. I slid off the highway and slammed into a tree.



After something like this happens you think of all the ways it could have been much worse. I’m so thankful that no one was with me in the van, no one else was around me on the highway, I didn’t go off into one of the many steep ditches on this road, I didn’t flip over (probably due to the tree that stopped me) and of course that I wasn’t hurt.

I did loose 10 of the 24 gallons of milk that were in the back. We really needed that milk….

And now I guess we’re in the market for a new 15 passenger van. I’m hoping for one that isn’t “Kidnapper Van White” but beggars can’t be choosers I suppose.
