Happy 26th Anniversary

My, how I love this man. April 4, 2017 marked our 26th year of marriage. I met him when I was just 14 and to this day, he remains my best friend. This year, Paul took me to dinner at a nice place in Hoover and then we went up to Vulcan. It was absolutely beautiful and I could have…

April 17, 2017

Hello, old friends. It’s been quite a long time. Life has taken so many twists and turns in recent months. Each morning has brought challenges and blessings (of course, those challenges are blessings if you believe that all things happen for the good of those who love Him!). I have a new grand-boy. We’re knee deep in our little soap…

Exodus 20

Tracy / November 23, 2016

Exodus 20 is our latest scripture memory passages. A number of months back, our pastor was teaching through this section. Each week, someone would volunteer to recite this section of scripture. My older children knew The 10 Commandments. Some of my middle kiddos had to work a bit on it and my littles were learning just from listening to the…

Tobias at 5 Months

Toby is 5 months
Tracy / October 8, 2016

Yep. It always goes by so fast. Toby is already 5 months old. These months with a little baby are so different than they were when I was a younger mama. In those days, it seemed endless…lots of sleepless nights. Diapers, diapers and more diapers. Now the days go by so fast. They seem to grow overnight. (He looked like…

Book Review- Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin

Tracy / October 8, 2016

Based on the song, “Good Good Father”, this week, I’m reviewing Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin and Pat Barrett, published by Tommy Nelson.   I had not heard this song before this week. I am realizing I must have had my head stuck in the sand, or something. Everyone except me seems to be familiar with it- I can…

NKJV Color Code Bible

Tracy / August 23, 2016

This month, I received the NKJV Color Code Bible for review through the Tommy Mommies program! This was a different review for me- while I liked many parts and features of this Bible, there were some that didn’t make sense to me, at all. The parts I liked- the color coded sections are very similar to the coding I do…

The Look and Tell Bible

This month I received a copy of The Look and Tell Bible from Tommy Nelson. The title is a little misleading. This isn’t a Bible. This is a book of Bible stories that have been simplified for little ones. I adore adding new board books to our collection. At various times through the day, it’s just helpful to have a…

After A Long Silence-

Tracy with Toby

After a long silence, I’m trying to fit in time to update my blog. Seasons are passing so quickly for me these days. (Don’t they always?) The new baby (my precious Toby), is now three months old. Courtney is in a courtship. He has been with us each day, the entire last month. I like him a whole lot. He…

Book Review: I Can Learn to Pray

Do you find yourself praying through the day? I have noticed it is a habit I have formed in recent years. I’ve also tried to start making it a habit to pray immediately with my children when they come to me with a problem. I want to make sure they know that the first place we should turn when we…
