Why do we feel like everything has to be perfectly in place before we start a project? Or that we have to follow a specific set of guidelines to get meaning out of an activity? Maybe the lesson comes from the messiness and the journey.
Francis Chan is a great author and has several Bible studies and books available. One of the more compelling studies I have done is one of his on The Book of James. James has actually become one of my favorite books of the Bible, and partly due to this study.
It seems like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) has every symptom/effect under the sun. Everything from irregular periods, infertility, cysts on the ovaries, acne, unwanted hair growth, thinning hair (where you do want it - on your head), elevated testosterone to the more serious issues effects such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease and really the list seems to go on.

The baby just got her first pair of glasses. Big sister picked out the color, lavender. They are super cute. But she is just under two so getting her to keep them on can be a fight - except not for daddy.
Hopefully everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July holiday. Being on a Tuesday, maybe some of you even had Monday off for an extended holiday weekend. We had traveled over the weekend, but was back by Sunday to get rested for the week. My husband was fortunate enough to take off Monday too. Both of us prepped our dishes we planned to take to the Fourth of July party - Famous Baked Beans and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dip. These were both wins. The fail, and it was a total fail, was dairy and egg free strawberry shortcake.
Fourth of July weekend is always a big weekend. We typically drive back home to see family. My husband's birthday is the end of June and there are a few other birthdays in July. His family makes a big deal of birthdays, but I like it. Its fun to celebrate with everyone and let the kids be around extended family. But the four to six hour drive can be a challenge - especially with no DVD player and a car sick prone kiddo.
If you would have told me ten years ago that someone would refer to me as a crunchy mom, I would have called them crazy! What does that mean anyway?! Crunchy mom??
Mondays are always long. Today was a little longer. No caffeine today. My husband and I made a pact, a wager, if you will, on who would crack this week. I'm determined to win and beat this accountability partner of mine.
