When I grow up, I want to be . . . .

Some people seem to know from a very early age what they want to “be” or “do” when they “grow up.” I’ve heard stories of people who just “knew” when they were seven years old that they would be a school teacher, or an astronaut, or a movie star, or president of the United States. …

RUBY magazine is getting a new look!

When I was asked to help out with a small, online Christian women’s magazine back in 2010, I had no idea that it would become such a huge part of my life and my  journey! Shortly after I agreed to “help,” I was told that the previous editor was having some serious health issues and …

Social media has a subtle way of causing self-doubt in just about every heart . . . especially the hearts of women.

That’s because Katherine and I have been “blogging buddies” for a really long time! So even though I’ve passed another age milestone in my …

Favorite Things: Spring Rain

Usually spring rain is one of my favorite things. But this week, it really hasn’t stopped raining . . . at all . . . since last Saturday actually, when we had a blizzard. I guess the rain is better than snow blowing 40 miles per hour, sideways, stinging the windows and piling up in …

Favorite Things: Old Fashioned Everything

Even as a young girl, I always found the ways of earlier generations quite appealing. While other teenagers were rebelling against the authorities and marching against the Viet Nam War, my interests remained focused on traditional home and family pursuits. Not that I was ever in favor of war! I knew way too many young …

A year for letting go

When the movie “Frozen” came out, both of our girls were old enough that they did not seem to have a fascination for that sweet story. It might be partly a result of every other little girl in Our Town singing “Let it Go” at the top of her voice (and frequently off key), so …

I quit!

Well, actually I didn’t exactly QUIT but I am finished. I’m done. It’s over. I’m free! As much as I have loved my JOB at the university, and I was doing a pretty good job at my JOB, and I love all of my co-workers . . . . sometimes things just don’t stay the …
