Faith lessons on the job

I have worked for the same company for nearly 30 years. I know – its rare these days to find anyone who has worked in one place for so long (except maybe for family owned businesses). I can honestly say I never expected to be here this long, but it’s been a good company. I… Continue reading Faith lessons on the job

What is hidden

This semester I have been taking a church history class, studying the growth and formalization of the doctrines of the Christian faith since the first 100 years after Jesus death and resurrection. It has been eye- opening and frustrating at the same time. Usually, class gets me thinking so much that I tend to write… Continue reading What is hidden

Girls weekend!!

I went on a mini girls retreat this past weekend, in a cabin in the mountains of Pennsylvania. It was just what I didn’t know I needed. As we poured over the scrapbooks full of memories, we laughed and remembered stories and things from mission trips, church outreaches, “Thursday night lineup”, beach trips and watching… Continue reading Girls weekend!!

Lessons from a late newlywed – Part 5: Building Blocks

For Trung and I, last summer was the season of building – and I mean actual construction. We started two projects at the beginning of the summer: A shed and a kitchen remodel.

Lessons from a marathon

Two weeks ago we walked out of church and heard cheering a block or so away. Curious, my husband and I headed down to Pearl Street to see what was going on. Turns out, that day was the first ever “Boulderthon” – the inaugural half and full marathon for Boulder – and we were right… Continue reading Lessons from a marathon

Another version of the road less traveled

As much as I love to hike locally, hiking in Boulder is a “get out early or deal with crowds” type of hike. There are usually a lot of people out on the trails – and for good reason! The view is great, you can find trails of any level, and … well, it’s Colorado.… Continue reading Another version of the road less traveled

Lessons from a (late) newlywed, Part 1: Moving Boxes

I can’t believe it’s been 4 months already. I admit, it seems a bit strange for me to be claiming the title of “newlywed” – but alas, that is what we are according to the calendar. I think we can claim that for maybe two more months? Another six? I guess it doesn’t really matter.… Continue reading Lessons from a (late) newlywed, Part 1: Moving Boxes

That craving….

My kids have always known me for someone who, if you put a bag of almond M&Ms in front of me, will easily eat the entire bag in one sitting. There is just something about the perfect balance of crunch and chocolate. So too, a good chocolate mousse, the kind you take one spoonful of… Continue reading That craving….
