We believe, that as Christian parents, it’s our duty to teach our children to understand and defend the dignity and the worth of every human being. It’s core to the Christian culture, even though it isn’t always practiced due to the makeup of our culture by sinful man.Pin It

Here’s the menu for my family for the week of February 27th. As far as desserts go, Friday is my 40th birthday! So, I’m hoping that there’s something chocolate in my future.Pin It
Asexual reproduction gives up to twice as much reproductive success (‘fitness’) for the same resources as sexual reproduction, so how could the latter ever gain enough advantage to be selected? And how could mere physics and chemistry invent the complementary apparatuses needed at the same time (non-intelligent processes cannot plan for future coordination of male and female organs).
These conversations all happened within a week or so of each other. They intrigued me only because roasting a whole chicken is my “I don’t want to put effort into dinner so I’m going to roast a whole chicken” fallback.Pin It
Here is a video tutorial on how to truss a whole chicken. I just used standard kitchen string for trussing. Note: if you want to stuff something into the cavity, I suggest you do it prior to trussing.Pin It
But then there’s this part of me that considers that on a normal day, I load, wash, and unload dishes into my dishwasher twice a day. I unload in the morning when I get up, and after lunch, it’s full and needs to be reloaded. I unload it during dinner prep, and re-load it after dinner.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of February 20th. As far as desserts go, I intended to make a fresh cherry pie in honor of Presidents’ Day, but I have a certain 5-year-old who recently learned how to use a cherry pitter, and who found the bag of cherries. So, that’s out. I may still make a Cherry Pie and serve it when we have company coming for dinner on Tuesday.
Gregg and I are also taking a little weekend trip alone to celebrate my 40th birthday (which isn’t until next week). We’ll be leaving Friday evening and not returning until Sunday afternoon.Pin It

They are just feelings — dark thoughts that spring forward when my hormones rage. I don’t ask for them. I don’t want them. I don’t seek them. I don’t even think about it the rest of the month. It just comes upon me out of nowhere – hits me upside the head, and for about 72 hours I struggle, desperately, to not let them surface and to not let anyone know how utterly destructive and how terribly desolate I feel.Pin It
