A FREE Crash Course in Creativity

I began tutoring homeschoolers in creative writing when I, myself, was only a few months out of high school. My high school experience had been incredible, educationally speaking, and I wanted everyone to have what I’d had. I’d entered my sophomore year with the desire to be a writer, but I graduated high school with the confidence to actually be one. Of course, through college classes and independent study I grew (and still grow) beyond […]

Stop Telling Me That God is Good

I don’t blog like I used to, and I’m truly grateful to those of you who still humor my occasional tirades and gabfests by stopping in from time-to-time. Some of you may not know it, but in its heyday this blog was decently well-read. Back when I was the eloquent wife of a redeemed philanderer, my inbox was filled to the brim. I don’t think I ever caught up (I just wrote a book). We–my […]

Why The Grass Isn't Going to Be Greener

God, YHVH, divorced His own Bride, Israel (though He also made a way to bring her back). Instead of reiterating the fact in every point of this post, I’ve decided to get it out of the way right now: There are valid reasons for divorce. I’d argue that the following reasons are the invalid ones. 1. You’re tired of being taken for granted.   Feeling unappreciated, whether in big ways or small ways, isn’t fun. It’s easy […]

Remember how hard it was for me to leave the mountains–how I pined over the beauty and clung to my little trailer like the security blanket that it was? No? Well, to be honest, I really can’t remember what I blogged back about a year ago, and I don’t feel like looking it up. Anyway, as it turned out, it was equally as hard for me (harder) to leave Missouri. And no, I have yet […]

My Father's Daughter

This is the short story of four orphaned boys. Their lineages vary from unimportant to scandalous, but at early ages they were all adopted by loving and affluent families. The way these boys responded to their adoptions is the reason I’m telling their story. This is not a true story, mind you…or is it? I’ll let you decide for yourself. The first boy fell in love with his parents from his very first glance of […]

Ready-to-Use Torah Portion Lessons (from the beginning)!

My kids and I love reading through the Torah Portion each week; it’s our favorite part of the school day. If the term “Torah Portion” is unfamiliar to you, a better explanation might be “Portions of the Pentateuch”. The Torah (the first five books of the Bible) are divided into fifty-four sections that are to be read throughout the year. The new cycle begins immediately after the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot). Starting with the new Torah […]
