Happy 241st Birthday Marines!

Posted in Holidays, and Military Life

Happy 241st Birthday Marines! Each year on or around 10 November, Marines gather in groups large and small to celebrate our history, honor the memory of those who have gone before us, and rekindle the bond that unites all generations of Marines. This year, we mark the 241st anniversary of our Corps—241 years of uncommon valor, innovation, and combat excellence. Marines, we are part of something bigger than any of us could imagine.

Praying through the Bible for your Kids

Posted in Christian Life, and Reviews

“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” ~ Proverbs 22:6 I started praying for our sweet girl before she was even born. As the years passed, the prayers continued, but the changed according to the stages of her life. Now, that she’s in college and approaching some difficult decisions about further education and a future career, I find myself, once again, praying in a different way. I also find myself praying that the Lord will bring the right people into her life to help her grow in…

Especially when the costume needs to be comfortable for both college classes and work? Well, if that geek is a bit of a Doctor Who fan, it makes sense to dress up as The Doctor. The hard part is deciding which incarnation of The Doctor she wanted to be.…

All Is Bright: A Devotional Journey to Color Your Way to Christmas

Posted in Christian Life, and Reviews

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This post contains affiliate links. I’ve enjoyed coloring from a young age and get a kick out of the fact that adult coloring books are now all the rage. When we were still in the homeschooling years, I often used coloring as a way to help my girl focus during a lesson. We would sit down and color together while watching an educational program. It was a fun, enjoyable way to relax. I’m glad that others are now learning how relaxing coloring really can be for people of all ages.…

Crazy Chicken Life: Chicken Escape

Posted in Family, and Homesteading

Every morning, before the sun rises, I fill the chickens’ feed bin with fermented feed and let them out of their coop. Some come running out while others swoop out with a flap of their wings. A few chickens tend to follow me to the run door. The others go for the feed or start looking for bugs. Once the sun comes up, they get really active. Whether they’re getting excited about finding some bugs or they’re laying eggs and singing the egg laying song, they seem to always be making noise unless they are resting or sleeping. They get…
