  • We ran this post from Greg Lucas back in 2013, but I still love it—The God Who Goes before You (on trusting God to care for our children when we’re gone).

Kristen Strong released her book Girl Meets Change this week! I’m still reading because so much of it applies to our current season of change. I do love this quiz, Is Change Your Friend or Enemy?

From My Bible:

As I’m preparing for 31 Days of Self-Care for Special-Needs Moms, I keep coming back to John 15:5

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Around the House:

Last week it felt like we were super busy outside of the house each day with lots of appointments. This week was calmer, with the usual school day rhythm.


I got the gifts for Special-Needs Parents Appreciation Month in the mail! Glad we wrapped that up and I’m looking forward to an even bigger and better celebration next year.


The boys and I visited a new park one afternoon when James was eager to go anywhere else (he asked for Sonic and get a slush, friends’ house play blocks, church, school, doctors, take David to theatre, and “bowling see Miss Jess?”).


David and I woke up Wednesday and decided we wanted to go to the beach. We called Grandma and a friend to invite them along. There weren’t many people there and the waves were big—a perfect beach day.
