Kindness and Beauty
I'm so grateful for the kind and encouraging comments on my last post. We live in a world where there is plenty of ugliness and each of us see and experience things on a personal level that can be painful and challenging. But there are bright spots of beaut...

Life is good - but life is really hard
We're home. It was a mad dash to get the kids ready to start school as soon as we got home - we came back on a Friday night and the younger kids started school that Monday morning then our two highschoolers (how in the heck do we have TWO highschoolers?) st...

A Typical Summer Evening
Last week, we had a session with a fabulous documentary photographer, Cate Johnson. The idea behind documentary photography is to capture the regular and basic parts of every-day life - the parts we don't often think about photographing.  Usually we photogr...

Launching into Summer
Yesterday was the last day of school so today was officially the first day of summer vacation. I'm SO glad to be done with the school year and have my kids to myself a lot more. They're growing up so fast and I just don't feel like I get enough of them duri...

My Talk in Church Today
I spoke in church today. I speak a lot so it shouldn't have been a big deal but somehow it was. I knew I was in trouble when I kept finding myself in tears as I prepared my talk - motherhood is a topic that is so near and dear to my heart! Then as I sat up ...

Do Good Fences Make Good Neighbors?
Have you heard that phrase before? Good fences make good neighbors? I've never really thought about it much before - then I had a big fence experience a couple days ago. First of all, let me set the stage. We had a HUGE windstorm on Saturday night lasting t...

The latest with me
I've got like 20 drafts of posts that I just never quite get around to polishing and posting. I've got some great photos and info on our National Parks trip, an almost-finished post with tons of great info on Costa Rica for anyone who may ever want to go th...

As I type this, I (Saren) am in the car with my husband and five kids (ages 11-16) driving from Mount Rainier National Park to Crater Lake National Park. Before Mount Rainier, we visited Rocky Mountain National Park for a couple days, then Yellowstone for a...

To the most deliberate dad ever on Father's Day
For Father's Day this year, I reached back into the archives of this blog and found some great stuff that I wanted to re-share. My dad is truly unique. In fact he is so unique that there needs to be some sort of new uber-unique word made up just for him. He...

Mother's Day Angst
Oh, Mother's Day... one of those days that is supposed to be so meaningful that it carries all sorts of stress. I always want to honor my mom so deeply and meaningfully but after over 40 years of doing stuff for her for Mother's Day, it's hard to come up wi...

Behavior change doesn't have to be so hard
I've been able to make myself do a lot of things in my life - hard things, exciting things, stressful things - everything from putting on conference for educators around the country to putting on Retreats for moms to doing TV segments to climbing mountains ...
