How a waterfall will wash away your troubles and trials

While housesitting in South Carolina, I prayed for insight and wisdom on how I might better place my trust in the Lord and in His timing. Thanks to a loving Heavenly Father who always keeps His promises, inspiration came from the most unlikely of experiences. Salem, South Carolina, and immediate surroundings boast over a hundred waterfalls. Some majestic in height and dramatic water flow with others […]

Would you like to feed our pig?

“Hey kids, who wants to go feed a pig today?” asks Denielle over breakfast in our Nebraska housesit. No hands shot up but little Lydia’s and Casey’s. “Why would we do that?” Neil asked, rubbing at the sleep still in his eyes. “Doesn’t sound like fun.” “A member in our Church owns a small farm and said we could visit if we bring some slop for her pig,” Denielle […]

Questions, new friends and raw milk

There’s something amazing about the power behind a question.  If you think about it, everything you interact with, touch, step on, drive in, wake up on, brush your teeth with, put your feet in, use, and so on, is the product of another’s thoughtful question. So, I had a question recently.  I was asking myself, and God, what milk product was right for our family.  […]

Our rendezvous in old Nauvoo

“Let’s hide in the van and then surprise them when they come back out,” Kaelyn suggests as we pull our old Lexus in alongside the Honda Odyssey.  I haven’t seen that van for over two weeks; but, more importantly, I have been deprived for over two weeks of seeing Denielle and the kids.  Oh, how I missed them terribly. I had picked Kaelyn up yesterday […]
