Keep Grief from Grinching Your Holidays

Grief feels like crashing into a brick wall. You come to a sudden and painful stop, but the world continues on. Grief doesn’t accompany only death. We grieve loss of finances, health, and relationships. The stages of grief can be experienced in a forward and backward motion. One day you’re at step four, the next day you’re back to step two. […]

Social Media is NOT the Antichrist @MindyJPeltier

Social Media is not the Antichrist

Some hail social media as an antichrist that’s corrupting the world. As with each technological advance throughout history, people tend to take sides and proclaim it “good” or “evil.” It is neither. It is there. The explosion of social media opened a vast territory to be explored and conquered. Each tentative step encountered blessings and dangers. The brave ones step into […]

9 Free Vintage Bible Verse Cards

These Bible verse cards are vintage, but the messages are still relevant because God’s Word is timeless. Human failure has diminished the power of the word “promise” and it can be seen as a persuasion tool, pulled out when character has failed. As kids, we made our friends cross their fingers and promise to tell the truth. As adults, […]

5 Annoying Things People Say

Every day people say annoying things. They’re meaningless and pointless rote lines that replace real compassion and conversation. It’s extra bothersome when you have a heavy or weary heart, when life has beaten you down so far you long for real concern.     If I’m having a Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, how can a trite saying make […]

Start Acting Like a Child! @MindyJPeltier

Start Acting Like a Child!

Being a grown-up is much harder than I imagined. As a child I pictured eating my desert first and staying up as late as I wanted. Turns out, it’s a bit more complicated than that. Just a tish. There are bills and bullies, taxes and trials, diseases and duties. Being a grown-up means you face […]

I Remember Susie Jaeger @MindyJPeltier

I Remember Susie Jaeger

In the cozy mountain town of Helena, Montana, every summer day was an adventure waiting to unfold for my five siblings and me. Under the watchful care of Mount Helena and the Sleeping Giant, we explored from the perch of our Schwinn banana seat bikes, the playing cards clothespinned in our spokes leaving a clickety echo trail. We swam at the Munic (Municipal Pool), fished […]

2016 Fresh

2016 Is Fresh With No Mistakes In It

A favorite inspirational quote is from Anne of Green Gables. You know, Anne with an “e”.  After getting caught reading Ben Hur instead of studying Geometry, Miss Stacey gently reproves her. After they talk about Anne’s punishment, she bursts out with relief, “Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it!” Miss Stacey smiles and adds, “Well, […]
