That Time of the Month
There have been a grand total of about 36 months of my adult life (let's say, after 17 or so) that I have not worried about, wondered if, hoped for, stressed over, prayed for or prayed against being pregnant. My reproductive history is such that I get pregn...

The Book of Knowledge and Wonder
When Steven Harvey was in his thirties, his grandmother gave him letters his own mother had written between 1945 and 1960. It wasn't until Steve turned 61 that he began to read the letters of his mother, who had committed suicide April 6, 1961, when Steve w...

You Better Watch Out
You know that Christmas song, "I'm getting nuttin' for Christmas?" My son had one of those days today. It's like the part of his brain that is designed to say "This is kind of a dumb idea" got unplugged so the part of his brain that is designed to say "I wo...

April in Books and Birds
I finished listening to two books in the last couple of days, The Faraway Nearby by Rebecca Solnit and Bird by Bird  by Anne Lamott, both of which I highly recommend.  I'm really into figuring out structure of books lately and thinking about the ways that a...

War and Peace and Devotion and David and Goliath
At the beginning of the year, I set a goal to read 12 books in 2015. That's one a month - totally reasonable, I figured. I like to read. That was before I discovered audiobooks. I finished two books yesterday - Devotion by Dani Shapiro and War and Peace by ...

Writers, Just Do It
Since switching jobs this fall, I've thought a lot about the writing life and how you go about making time to write. Writers bemoan the lack of time they have to dedicate to their craft more than any other group of people aspiring to something. There are do...

Reading the Bible with My Kids
We started reading the first book of the Bible, Genesis, with our kids this month. Up until now, besides praying with them and the occasional aside about God's love and being kind and other such directives throughout the day, we've left the Bible up to thei...

Goals and Resolutions in 2015
Given the new job/new house/new routine thing that transpired in 2014 and the lingering sinus congestion that is fogging up my head, my resolution/goal list for 2015 is feeling a bit unambitious and uninspired. However, there are a few things I know I want ...
