Hard days
Today was a hard day. Not a hard day, like ones I've lived before, days that I woke up in the morning and asked God for more hours with one of my children before they left us forever. Those days are horrific. Today was just hard. Today was one of those days...

Why am I not writing? It's not like I don't have anything to say. I am saying things all the time. It's rallying the brain space to put it in words - I'm not finding that space. Not writing feels like I'm missing something crucial, like I forgot how to brea...

Clark Family Announcement!
FAQs: Isn't FAQ a complete statement? Is the s really necessary? Excellent question. I can't handle skipping the s. You're gonna have to accept this. When are you moving?  Our plan is to be in Texas on December 1st. We are looking for a big place to rent fo...

Osteens, Jesus and grace
"You should have a reality show!" people tell me all the time. "Your family is so funny!" Every time, I think, "I am SO glad I don't have a reality show." I control the way we are presented, for the most part. I tell you the funny stories, the redemptive mo...

Momnesia
There are multiple safeguards that God built in to make parenting doable. For one thing, babies are adorable. Not at birth, mind you. A very select group of infants come out looking like humans, but the majority are more what my dad (RIP) often referred to ...

Tomorrow, I will be 36. Technically, this year will still be my mid-30s, unlike my husband, who will turn 37 in 2 weeks and definitely be in his  late 30s. 36. Guys, I can  smell 40. 40 is not old anymore. In fact, I'm starting to feel a little iffy about c...

Stress in a NEW place! or Vacation With Kids
This summer was intense. Maybe that term is buzzwordy, but it's pretty polite yet strong. I could also say this summer was the 7th circle of hell, but that would be overstating it, and besides, I don't know my hell theology well enough to define the 7th cir...

Stepping out of the screen
Social media is a mixed bag. I recognize its hold on my thought patterns, my addiction to constantly being connected- at the same time it is such a valuable tool and connector. I'll write more about the 2 weeks we just spent in Texas and in the Caribbean, b...

Story
Tagline
I'm too legit to quit.
Introduction
I'm a Texan living in Missouri, learning how to pray- a wife to a rocker, missionary and a worship leader (same guy). I am a Mac evangelist and food lover, survivor of multiple complicated (understatement) pregnancies and mommy to 4 amazing kids on earth and 2 amazing kids in heaven. I'm also an adoptive parent, a reader, and a domestic goddess who hates to clean. 
Bragging rights
I got a bunch of kids and a minivan. Jealous?
