New Year, So Some Goals

There’s nothing more fun than a good bunch of goals, is there? DREAMS! PLANS! LISTS! I know I’ll never do everything I write on my lists or even half the things I think in my head, but that sure doesn’t dim my enjoyment of the process, or the trying. I’d been meaning to sit down […]

Merry Christmas!

From my family to yours, wishing you a very merry Christmas and happy new year! May you all find peace, love and the abiding joy only God can bring in the holiday season and beyond.

In which we help my Dad write a book

Hello, Monday friends! My sweet, smart Dad wrote a book, and if you’re even remotely interested in the church history of reformed Christianity, you should probably buy it. The book is called “Sharing in Abraham’s Blessing: The Spread of the Gospel from Jerusalem to the Ends of the Earth”, and it’s available from Premier Publishing – […]

Monday Moments: Things We Did

Sometimes I think about what life would be like if Carl or I were to die unexpectedly. That may sound morbid, but it isn’t something that makes me really anxious as much as it makes me thoughtful.  Kids are highly adaptable and have very short memories, and I know it wouldn’t be long before I […]

Carl and I are so thrilled and thankful to introduce our sweet new baby boy, Gavin Fletcher!Gavin was a solid 9 lbs, proving me right where Carl thought I had been exaggerating about the maxed out capacity of my insides. Determined to make it to the hospital in time for drugs for the first time, I suffered through about […]

Teach Your Girls to Expect Their Man to Help

Maybe it’s because I’m getting larger and waddlier (definitely a word) by the day, or maybe it’s because I’ve spent a semester discussing feminism in all its variations, but I think it’s time to talk about a really important thing: depending on a man for help. Now, I’m not saying women can’t do amazing things, […]

Waiting for Words

Lately I’m running out of words. It took me a bit to realize why I felt strange, why I just couldn’t shake an uncomfortable sense of not feeling quite like myself.  Getting through the day, doing the day to day things that need to be done – these things all still happen, and don’t seem particularly draining. […]

Father’s Day Thankfulness

Somehow Father’s Day always sneaks up on us, right in the middle of things starting to get into summer busyness.  We don’t really do anything particular to celebrate Mother’s or Father’s Day (let’s not talk about made-up holidays :)) but I love the reminder to be appreciative of all I have in my dad, my […]

The Canadian Food Experience Project: Culinary Identity

Today marks 1 year since the Canadian Food Experience Project launched, which began with the goal for us as participants to share our collective food experiences and recipes, with the hope of bringing clarity to a Canadian culinary identity. This month marks the end of this journey, and the 8 posts I contributed are below – does this food feel Canadian […]
