"I guess I just don't get it. Why seminary?" my mom asked one night around the fire pit. I find it quite interesting, now that I think about it, that this whole time, we haven't dived deep into "Why seminary." At least I haven't. What about seminary itself makes us feel called?

I saw it in the distance, a semi-truck transporting a massive piece of machinery. The banner "OVERSIZE LOAD" with all the flags and flashing lights is always a sore sight to see on the road. Especially on the interstate going 70 miles an hour. It makes any driver quiver a bit. So all I can … Continue reading OVERSIZE LOAD

On the other hand we have a remarkable dread, a remarkable hatred of poverty, mean birth, and a humble condition, and feel the strongest desire … Continue reading Flavor of the Day
As I sat down to write my potential first blog post, Bobby ambled into the living room and asked if I was journaling about seminary. I smiled a little sheepishly and nodded, and then he mocked me in a girly-like voice, “Yesterday Bobby dropped a bomb-shell on me, and today he made me cry..... One … Continue reading 100 Ways to Ruin Your Wife’s Life
It was a cool, crisp, darkened September morning, and Bobby came upstairs to fill up his cup of coffee like usual. Occasionally we like to have brief snippeted conversations about our morning in the Bible, and this seemed to be no different. “I think I've got it?” Announced my husband as dark steaming beverage swirled … Continue reading I Think I’ve Got it?
