Here’s a post that’s out of my ordinary topic.  However, saving money and saving time is definitely a MostlySensible part of my life.  Who doesn’t like saving money?  So I’d like to pass on a little of what I’ve found helpful to me. I hate wasting time.  I especially don’t appreciate participating in something that was supposed to be a benefit to me but isn’t in the end.  Frankly, I don’t like getting “rewards” as much as getting cash back.  I don’t...

In the political world and in our culture, there is a new term called the “snowflake” generation.  It has become one of Collins Dictionary’s 2016 words of the year, and it means, “the young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations.”1  There is a wider connotation to mean that these are young people (teens through early adult-hood) who not only are offended easily, but seem to think it’s ok to melt down in a panic...

How to be a follower The humility and discipline of submitting to those over us has a subtle and unique power.  It is not power over the leader, but power over self. Power over selfishness.  To place my desires and perspective and opinions below that of another person (husband, parent, pastor, teacher, rules, etc.) is not only a freeing thing, but an empowering thing.  Modern feminism, even “Christian” feminism, rebels against this.  This militant...

In my previous post “God Created a Woman”, we reviewed the nature and purpose of women as we studied through Genesis 1 and 2.  I’ve made the point that God created women to be equal in kind to the man, and His purpose for us is to be helpers to the man.  This arrangement, this role, this hierarchy, is a part of God’s perfect creation.  Sin had not entered the picture yet.  Complimentarianism seems to be the only form of male headship...

This hearty soup is hubby approved, and it’s actually pretty easy to make.  It’s creamy, comforting, and so good!  The base of the soup is the tomato parmesan, so if you don’t happen to have the tortellini or the sausage on hand, you could leave those out and it would still be a super yummy dish.  I don’t usually have cream on hand, so I usually substitute that part of the recipe with a roux to thicken it up a bit (you’ll see that alternative at the bottom of the recipe).  However, for...

I’m guilty.  As a mother of one boy and three girls, I admit that I cringe and have to turn away when my husband is rough with my son.   Just the other day we went down to the river with another family who has five boys and one girl to cook hotdogs, enjoy the scenery, and let the kids get dirty.  Good clean fun!  Or rather, good, messy, fun.  I don’t know about your husband, but with mine and my friend’s husband, when you mix water and dirt and four-wheelers and campfires….there shall be...
