God Only Knows

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”  ― Corrie ten Boom It’s the last day for Jennifer Fulwiler’s 7 for 7 Challenge, and I was stumped when it came to a topic today. Until I went to Mass, that is. It’s been less than a year since I wrote about our…

Seven Quick Takes: Fourth Friday of Lent

Well-Meaning, But Wrong

I blogged about my older daughter’s struggle with ADD (and mine, let’s face it!), as well as our decision to give medication a try.
