Christian living- dealing with one 'oops' at a time…


Thanks for visiting my blog! Hopefully, in all the jumbled mess that it is you will find something that will inspire you, make you laugh or make you think. I am still deciding what exactly the purpose of this format is, so there’s a little bit of everything here. So before I apologize for everything and anything, here’s a little bit about me.

I was saved in a non-Christian household in the third grade. Knew nothing ‘deep’ about God until well into adulthood, and spent most of my life in a martial arts do-jang (or do-jo depending on the style). I was never getting married and never having kids. Now there are seven of them (plus four grands), and a husband I could not imagine life without. I love dogs, hate cleaning and have no patience for TV. We also home school, which is awesome- by the way. In New York I was ‘sweet,’ in New Mexico I am ‘from NY’ (which is apparently code for ‘not sweet’). The guys from karate have a completely different opinion of me.

I am not a writer, though somehow I keep publishing books… My heart is that people understand the Word of God so they can more easily apply it to their lives.

Be warned, I also believe sarcasm is an art form, and, if you give me time, will point out examples of it in the Bible. (Or read my Bible commentaries, because I know I point them out in there!)

My blog is what it is. These are my thoughts. Feel free to disagree with me, but please be nice. (I have feelings too!)
