You are right. There was no blog post this week. I've been on edge waiting for word that my daughter-in-law's condition was under control. It's been a worrisome week.

“Martial Arts is a RELIGION!” retorted a staunch fundamental brother in Christ when he found out that my first hubby and I had a Christian martial arts ministry. It was as if we were caught smuggling contraband into the Church. Interestingly, many people we knew from our Southern Baptist church had enrolled their children in local Taekwondo classes to help them learn self-defense an...Read Full Post »

We’ve all done it. Our jeans are don’t fasten anymore, so it’s time to lose weight. Again. We ask our friends and scour the internet for the “best” diet.

I remember standing with a group of kids while team captains picked their teams. I waited and waited for my name to be called until I was the only one left standing there… waiting. “Oh, do we HAVE to take HER?!?!” the team captain whined. The teacher insisted they did.

I’ve moved so much in my life, I ought to write a book about it. Each time we pulled up stakes with our belongings loaded in a moving truck to make our home in another city, I tried to consider it a new adventure. “We will just have more friends to meet!” I told my kids.But after several moves, that forward thinking mel...Read Full Post »
