Dear Mrs. Clinton:

Today you made the following statement: “Now, extreme views about women – we expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world. But it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States.” I assume, though it’s mind boggling to me, that when you use the phrase “extreme views about women” you are […]

3 Reasons to Really Talk to Your Children

It’s almost nine in the morning. I climbed back into bed around eight (with my laptop and my coffee), and all I really want to do right now is slip quietly back into dreamland. I could do it, too. We had a big day yesterday, and a late night, and all of my children are either still sleeping or are quietly working on their morning schoolwork. The little one (now six years old) is curled […]

This Torah Thing...How'd That Happen?

Over the past three years, I have been asked to write this post at least a few dozen times. I’m sitting down to write it, now, but I still don’t know what to say. The question is usually worded like, “This Torah thing…how’d that happen?” or “Can you explain this change that has happened in your life?” And I can’t completely explain it except to say that I took the red pill. It’s no longer […]

On Trespassing Goats and Getting Away with Murder

Last night I was thinking (yes, I still think lots of thoughts, I just don’t always share them) about the Azazel goat (first mentioned in the current Torah portion—Leviticus 16). The sin of the Israelites was symbolically placed on the head of the Azazel goat, and then that goat was forcibly driven from the camp. Because Yeshua is our High Priest in the Heavenly Tabernacle, and because we have received atonement through His sacrifice, we […]

We Had Fun, and I Have Pictures

The weekend before last my parents took us out of town to see the kids’ cousins. We all had an amazing time. It was exactly  the kind of weekend I used to carefully document in photo-filled blog posts. Wanna see? For me, the highlight of the trip was probably the zoo. Of course, we also had a great time just lounging around the hotel and visiting Focus on the Family, but the zoo isn’t free…which makes […]

Win a FREE Digiland Tablet!

Hopefully by now you’ve stopped by my new Crash Course in Creativity classroom. Launching a business is hard work, and those who are around to support that work deserve some extra special attention, I think. I knew I wanted to host a giveaway to reward one of our first “fans” or “followers,” but I wanted the prize to be as educational as it was fun. One of our favorite things this home-school year has been […]

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 […]
