"Tolkien never intended his tales of Middle-earth to be a desertion from reality, but a means of seeing beyond the confined walls of our perceptions to a much larger reality beyond. And he suffered no delusions that Middle-earth was that reality. But through the lenses of Middle-earth, Tolkien, an unashamed Christian, wanted to show us “a far-off gleam . . . of evangelium in the real world” (emphasis his, “On Fairy-stories”). His kind of fantasy was intended to help prisoners in the real world escape and go home.

"There is a deep, profound reason why God created us to be story-makers and storytellers, and why, when the Word became flesh (John 1:14), he frequently spoke in stories. The best make-believe stories help us better understand the real world. And in our day, such stories are needed more than ever."

Bye-Bye, Parent: The Government Owns Your Child
What would you do if you were told that you could not be present for a ‘private’ meeting between your 12 to 17 year-old child and an unknown nurse or care-giver with a list of questions that would be put in their ‘medical’ record forever? I am not sure if I am a ‘normal’ parent or not but after being a practicing RN for over 20 years, I would say, “No thank you!”

Our dear friend Johanna coined a phrase that has stuck with us (we love it!), and now we think of our plus-size friends as ‘elegantly curved’! We have many beautiful, elegantly-curved friends created by God, wonderfully and fearfully made.

It has been so much fun looking for clothes that are graceful and feminine, and yet don’t cause us to be despised in the eyes of the world. There are many disturbing things out there, but happily, there are many women and girls who are standing up to the current downhill slide and saying, “No, I will hold the line!” I share some of them with you here.

Mother often told me it was best to watchfully let a fever run, and so cautiously over time, I've used that principle in the illnesses of our own children despite my nurse's training in medicating to bring down a fever.

We all grieve differently; there is no right or wrong way. As a believer in Christ, I hold on to the promises in God’s Word when I grieve.  http://www.deeprootsathome.com/25-encouraging-scriptures-grieving/
