Mother’s Day

He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD.” ~ Proverbs 18:22 The above verse may be true, but I think that verse is a little incomplete without something: “He who finds a wife [who will make a good mother] finds what is good…”   Mothers are vital. ThoughContinue reading “Mother’s Day”

The Girl’s Guide to Rocking

When I was twelve years old, my grandfather sat down on the couch next to me and looked at me. “What instrument do you want to play, mija?” Violin was my immediate answer.

I recently found this book while doing my own personal research on the American Revolution. Though not one of my very informative reads, it was an interesting book and I enjoyed the narrative. The war for American independence has begun. While many patriots fight bloody battles and British spies steal secrets, Maddy Rose fights theContinue reading “The Scarlet Stockings Spy”
