Tinkerbell & the Legend of the Neverbeast {giveaway!}

About once a month, we have movie night at our house. We snuggle on the couch with popcorn (or our new favorite, homemade roasted pecans with butter and salt!) and watch something from our treasure trove of movies. My husband and I collected kids’ movies even before the kids were born. I think the first DVD […]

Cinderella: Family Movie Moms Review

If you’re here for the first time, here’s a bit about my philosophy on movie reviews… You might remember my disdain for Maleficent. I felt like they took a beloved movie and rubbed it’s nose in the dirt. Even if it was Angelina, I couldn’t love it. So, when I saw the preview (the original glass slipper […]

The Promise of New Life

The last few days have been aaaallllmost spring-like. It’s 63 today and even though the prediction is a week of rain, I’ll take it over the frigid temperatures from last week.

When Lydia was 1 year old, I went to the Christian bookstore to […]

Into the Woods, Annie & Night At the Museum

Just a quick note to let you know Heather and I podcasted about some new seemingly-kid-friendly movies. You should listen before you head out to the theatre! And apparently I called Meryl Streep Glenn Close during the whole podcast. Boy howdy. That’s the kind of quality journalism you can expect around here, friends. (Let’s just call […]

Top 3 Books of 2014

Hey friends! Christmas has come and gone! Now we’re in my favorite week of the year–Christmas vacation where we don’t have any after school activities, my husband barely has to work and we literally have not one thing on the agenda. So, when my mind is off of to-do lists, it heads straight for books! […]

Gifts That Will Help Lead Your Kids to Jesus

I thought I’d do a little Bible-Based, Jesus-Centric Gift Guide for you and your kiddos this season (well, ONE WEEK TILL CHRISTMAS). As I started writing it I realized I’ve linked to all these products several times and thought about not making it. But then I realized the reason I talk about these products/ministries all the […]
