Keep the Right Mindset! - Podcast

Don't let Satan rock you to sleep to commit sin, awake to righteousness God's Word says!  Stay away from the evil influence of women that claim they know God but their works deny they know Him!  Keep your mind right and think on the hope of the hereafter - death has no victory for the Christian!

Using Remember the Milk for Chores

There is an app (also a website version) called " Remember the Milk " that has been a valuable tool for me to keep my to-do's and chores organized and to also have my kids (and even husband) know what it is they need to do in the house on a daily, weekly, monthly, etc. basis.  It has been the BEST tool I've ever used and something a lot of people don't know about unfortunately. Not only can I put all the house chores and the frequency they need to be done, but I can easily see who has done what through my main account.  Both of my kids have a phone with the app - my son has a phone with no cell service and limited usage availability and monitored!  So they look at their chore list every morning and check off when they've completed their chores as they go throughout the day. Here are screenshots of our lists and I also included a MISC list I had of random things I want to eventually get done.  I have most chores set to repeat at certain times I have set - some


Some of you long-time readers may remember my story I wrote a decade ago ( I Know "Her"... ) about how I was told I would go to hell if I had a baby.  I told how later I was told from another man of God that no, I wouldn't go to hell for having a baby.  However, I still thought I would until God spoke to me Genesis 18:19.  You can read all about that in the link to that post above. After that, I tried to conceive but couldn't and then after tests I was told by our doctor that I was sterile and probably impossible to conceive without help.  Having children was my dream and I was crushed but I prayed for God to heal me.  I was struggling to say the least.  Then, a leader in a church we were in, came to Alaska to preach for us.  I've never forgotten that message.  He preached a message called, TRUST ME!  He constantly emphasized those words TRUST ME over and over again.  The Lord spoke to me and said that I needed to trust Him that I was pregnant at that very moment

Arizona Vacation

We did a 15-day vacation to Arizona, staying mostly in Tucson for 8 days, which was my favorite part of Arizona!  The low humidity and high heat was heaven to me.  We also saw Phoenix, Sedona and Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. We did a lot of hiking in Tucson and our first evening, we didn't realize how soon the sun sets in Arizona lol and we got lost in the desert in the dark.  We saw 4 tarantulas across our path and one, the largest of all, was on my daughter's leg!  Yes, I screamed and she was able to shake it off.  I think the spider was just as afraid as she was and the locals told us tarantulas don't hurt you usually, so no big deal besides they are HUGE!  Thankfully no rattlesnakes, although we did see the skin of one laying in the desert.  There are tons of butterflies in Tucson, so pretty!  Then of course all the saguaro cacti everywhere - they are amazing looking. We had our own private pool during our stay and we swam day and night every day.  We also met up wit

Full Summer Bloom Hike

We had a few hikes this week and I took some pictures of God's beautiful creation.  My son calls this a summer cave because when we walk this path in the winter, there is no covering over the trail of greenery. We also saw something we've never seen before outside of a zoo - an owl!  It was huge and was flying around but I managed to capture a few pics of it: Then we also saw a lot of deer, which we normally do but these weren't at all afraid of us: I did some close ups on the flowers in the fields: Then we came across this large butterfly, who let me capture him eating his dinner:

Ocean Fun!

Our family vacation last summer was to the Atlantic Ocean in the Outer Banks, NC.  We would go here almost every summer growing up but I hadn't been since then.  My kids had never seen the Atlantic Ocean and my son, had never seen any ocean ever. Then on the way back we stopped by our favorite cabin in Amish country and did some kayaking and relaxing!
