Welcome! This is where it all began. I no longer post on this website and some of the content reflects former convictions and understandings. Some of these posts are hard core on issues that I am softer on these days. I deleted many posts that I feared would lead people into legalism, so if you find a missing hyperlink that may be why. These days I write at Covered By His Hand.

John Piper has an excellent message about songwriter William Cowper. Cowper dealt with extreme depression, and suicidal thoughts. While this might sound like a morbid message, I assure that it is very encouraging. Listen to it here.

(I should add that I just posted this because I found it in draft form and finished it and published it. I did not know that it would go to the top of the page. I still plan to post regularly at Covered By His Hand.)

Christian Entertainment

I just wrote this on our family blog, but I wanted to post it here as well. I just want to get the word out about a good movie... and support another homeschooling family.

Is there such a thing as Christian entertainment? You bet! And, I want to mention one such film to you now.

The Widow's Might is a great, full-length film made by homeschoolers for the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival. Paul and I just found it by "accident" on Netflix a few weeks ago.

What I liked about the movie (in no particular order):
- seeks to honor God
- By watching it I feel like I am supporting entrepreneurial homeschoolers
- Very modest
- Clean speech: no bad language
- It was very funny. The kids burst out into peals of laughter every few minutes. Paul and I also laughed out loud a few times.
- The music was good... I will be hearing it in my head for months
- The youngest boy wears an eye patch, and Nelson is now very eager to wear his ; )

Overall, we loved the movie.

I hope you all go out and get a copy of this movie. I do not think you will be disappointed.
