A Month in Photos – April 2012

I got a bit behind in my photo editing and organization this last couple months, so I’m just posting April’s collages now and it’s almost time to post May’s!  I really love seeing all of these photos together — a collage of favourite or memorable moments from my Nikon and all of my Instagrams.  It […]

Choose Joy by Kay Warren – Book Review

I thought I’d read Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn’t Enough basically because of the title. Then I found out Kay Warren wrote it and she is wife of Rick Warren who wrote Purpose Driven Life, which was a book I really liked when I was a brand new Christian. This book, written for women, is […]

A Week in Photos – Week 21 – Project 365

If this is week 21 then that means I’m  halfway through this 365 project!  I have tried doing a 365 two times before but have never made it this far.  It definitely helps to just use my iPhone and not have to come up with anything too creative, just getting daily snapshots of my family […]

Isaac is 5 months old!

  Isaac, you are just so stinking cute.  What else can I say?  You are so chubby and squishy and just so kissable, I could eat you right up.  Not really, obviously, that would be weird, but that is just something that adults say about babies when they really like them.  You have really grown […]

Hard Days — Embracing the Camera

It’s been a rough few days for me around here. I hate to even complain because I do know how lucky I am to have these three kids. And I really do love them so so much. I’m just really tired. I’d appreciate it if you’d pray for me to find joy in serving these […]

Empty Promises by Pete Wilson – Book Review

Wow, Pete Wilson has really hit the nail on the head with Empty Promises: The Truth About You, Your Desires, and the Lies Youre Believing. While still being loving, Wilson confronts all of us about various idols in our lives: desires, self-deception, achievement, approval, power, money, religion lies, beauty, and our dreams. Each chapter touched […]

May Long at the Cabin

We made the loooong trip to Lake of the Prairies in Manitoba this past weekend for a Roberts get together. 3/4 of Peter’s siblings and their families were able to be there (we missed Mark, Kiara and Kori!). We spent time fishing, hot tubbing, laughing (lots of laughing), baby snuggling, and connecting. Rainy, dreary, 11 […]

Anything by Jennie Allen – Book Review

I can still remember that night very clearly.   Just months before, I had experienced the moment that would define my life, the moment where I feel my eyes were opened.  I woke up.  I saw and felt God so clearly that I just knew.  I told Peter right away, I told him that I was […]

A Week in Photos – Week 20 – Project 365

May 12, 2012 – family walk to the park. May 13, 2012 – My sweeties before church. Today was Mother’s Day but we often celebrate holidays like that on Mondays because Peter has the day off and Sundays are so busy. I watched a movie with Isaac in the evening and put him into a […]

Mother’s Day

I am grateful for these three little souls who gave me the name Mother. (I recently was given a beautiful gift from my friend, Brittany. She came to spend the day with us and she documented what my version of motherhood looks like. All of the above images are credited to her. If you would […]
