The Complaint Factor You know what I’m talking about, especially if you have experienced pregnancy before. Let me set the stage for those who may not jive with this …

a time & a season (part IV of IV)

Oh my friends.  It’s time.  Time to post about the impending arrival of a new little one in our family. I will be careful in writing this, and probably sit with it a few days to make sure I’ve communicated everything clearly. I am going to tell this part of the story using excerpts and …

a new place to call home (part III of IV)

I honestly thought that we’d be in this house for a while.  Probably a long while.  We love the area, we’re super close to church and many conveniences.  However, deep down was the desire to eventually get out of the two-story and back into a single level. What do I love about where we’re at? …
