coming up. . .

Stay tuned for a review of Andrew Peterson's "North! or Be Eaten." Just cracked it open today!

A note on pregnancy jazzercise

I feel compelled to comment.

1. Jazz. Not techno. I thought there would be jazz.

2. How many times can a normal person "double step to the right" in a 60 minute segment?

3. I've never looked that good in workout pants.

4. We are pregnant, not post-surgery, not decrepit, certainly not dead yet.

5. I'm pretty sure the Lincoln City Library employee was mocking me when I picked up the dvd.

disclaimer: I recognize that in 5 months I will no longer be rolling my eyes when the woman urges "work it" to women walking in place. . .

Another Reason to Love AP

"Those of us who write, who sing, who paint, must remember that to a child a song may glow like a nightlight in a scary bedroom. It may be the only thing holding back the monsters. That story may be the only beautiful, true thing that makes it through all the ugliness of a little girl’s world to rest in her secret heart. May we take that seriously. It is our job, it is our ministry, it is the sword we swing in the Kingdom, to remind children that the good guys win, that the stories are true, and that a fool’s hope may be the best kind."
Andrew Peterson

I needed to read that tonight. Not just children need to be reminded. You can read the full article on the Rabbit Room.
