"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."

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.

We all experience grieving 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.

This giveaway is a bit different since YOU get to choose the size Boss Pickler YOU will really use. Choose from the 1L, 1.5L, 2L, 3L and 4L. Everyone’s needs are different.
Fermenting with the Boss Pickler is easy to do and eliminates the problems of doing it in Ball jars with rings and lids. It is now my 'go-to' container.

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!”

If that happened, I'd know it was time to switch doctors!

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.

Reader Question: "You have shown me that being modest doesn’t mean frumpy! Could you do a post just for those of us who are plus size? Thank you so much!"

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.

I agree with you. I keep a watchful eye on other symptoms, but let fever do it's job. It's vary rare that medication is needed at all.

Garlic is such a health-boosting herb and it adds so much to a savory dish, it is worth the time to figure out how to use it quickly in your kitchen.

Kate and David Ogg told how doctors gave up on saving their son after a three-hour labor in a Sydney hospital and doctors had pronounced him dead, but Skin-On-Skin (Kangaroo Care) brought their son back to life! Unusual, yes!, but we mothers can gain insight into the effectiveness of this wonderful practice and more about how God designed the body.
