What if Their Story, Were My Story?

It’s been almost a year since I’ve written anything thoughtful and substantial here on my little blog.  It’s been over two years since I have felt moved to write anything political in nature.  My reasoning has been pretty simple: I don’t care about politics anymore.  Crazy, I know!  For years I watched many of my…

My Life. My Choice.

As many of you know, I recently had a baby.  I’m trying to forgive the extra pounds and sleepy eyes but sometimes when I am out running errands I’m glad that I have my tiny baby with me so that people know that I have an excuse.  I don’t want people looking at me and…

The Dark Eagles: Wells in Desolation {Review}

Not too long ago I was able to read and review The Dark Eagles: First Flight by David R. Smith.  For the past year and a half I have eagerly awaited the sequel and was more than pleased when David contacted me for a review.  As expected, The Dark Eagles: Wells in Desolation did not disappoint….

Digging Deeper – Dystopian Literature

De gustibus non est disputandum is one of my favorite latin phrases.  It means “In matters of taste, there can be no disputing”. My husband loves to eat his cake in a bowl full of milk.  I can’t stand most cake frostings.  I’m a fan of country music.  He loves smoked oysters while the smell of…

Book List

**This post has been edited to account for the books I have read and my thoughts on them** As promised, here is my tentative book list for the coming year.  I am under no illusions that I will be able to read them all (some of them are pretty long) but I like to have…

Dear "Christian" Pro-Life Activist… You're Not Helping

***WARNING, this post contains disturbing subject matter*** Dear Christian, Pro-Life Activist, My family and I were having such an enjoyable day. We had driven down to Philadelphia to visit Independence Hall and had just finished a wonderful lunch of some authentic Philly cheese steak sandwiches. We were walking towards the line for the Liberty Bell…

Drunk on Credit

A few months ago I wrote a couple of posts about how we go about teaching our kids about work and money. Those posts caught the attention of a little company called My Job Chart. Now I don’t know about you, but when I do business with a company I like to know that they…

Breastfeeding – The "Controversy" About a Baby's Diet

It’s been a while since I have offended everyone on earth, so I figured I would take a moment to remedy that fact. **Warning, this post is about breastfeeding.  It may contain words like “breast”, “boob”, “nipple”, and “sexual”.  If that makes you queasy or don’t want your kids reading it, then take appropriate actions…

Seven Miracles That Saved America {Review}

The other day, as I was getting dressed, I looked in the mirror and was again discouraged by the extra poundage my body is relentlessly holding on to.  I mentioned to Matt that I would have liked to live back when being “plump” was considered an attractive quality in women. “No you wouldn’t,” he said,…

The Bullying Problem is an Argument for Local Government

As I was making breakfast this morning my thoughts began to wander, as they often do, to the current state of our society.  You know how it works when you let your mind wander.  One minute I was thinking about the problems with education in our country (yes, homeschoolers DO care what is going on…

What Would The Founding Fathers Think {Review}

So if you have been reading my blog for a while then you know that my thoughts are often turned towards the history of the United States and its current circumstances.  Anyone who has had more than a five minute conversation with me knows how difficult it is for me to NOT talk about politics….
