Oh, the questions we answered! These… Continue reading Two Weeks’ Notice
My inadequacy as a homeschooling mom overwhelms me. I sat last Monday listening to the other moms during our “moms meeting” discuss homeschooling curriculum like it was everyday laundry soap and toothpaste brands. They compared homeschooling Web sites, resources, libraries, DVDs, songs, sign languages, symphony programs, professional sports tryouts … . OK, I’m lying about… Continue reading Where are my tweezers?

We made it through the second week of homeschool cooperative. Woo hoo. I wish I were one of those moms who lives for school events. Fact is, I’ve tried. I’m not.

It is my… Continue reading The Last Supper 😦

Paul was nervous? It can’t be! It… Continue reading Wet, Sweaty Armpits
I wrote last month that the water filters for which the girls and I campaigned last year and this year had arrived in Cambodia. Part of that was true. They did arrive in Cambodia. However, they did not get delivered to the village near Battambang in mid-July as planned.Praise God. He is never late!God arranged… Continue reading Dirty Water = Dirty Word
Partners in prayer for the city of Phichit. Sometimes, people just want curtains. They’ll find much more than fine drapery, however, if they wander into Nong Lak’s shop in northern Thailand. Whirling through the blue silks and orange cottons and teal polyesters that define beauty in most of the country, Nong Lak’s customers will find… Continue reading Behind the Curtain Shop of Phichit
