Life just got a whole lot bigger and scarier. But the God I knew was still small and stuck in the box I created for him with my incomplete understanding of his grace.
It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts! We’ve been busy adjusting to our new life in North Carolina, celebrating the 4th of July, taking short day trips, and most of my free time has been spent writing posts for my new blog series about legalism and grace.

As of today, we have lived in our new home for exactly one month, and have been here in our new hometown just a few days beyond that. In so many ways our life in Kentucky…our Army life…seems like a different lifetime ago. It feels like we have been here forever. And other times it … [Read more…]

It is of the small joys and little pleasures that the greatest of our days are built. Mary Anne Radmacher January and February have been very full months for our family. Full of ordinary days and ordinary moments. They have been fun and relaxing, but busy as well. Ordinary, busy, relaxing, and beautiful… My husband … [Read more…]
