Grace Upon Grace::The Mystery of Prayer

by Edie Wadsworth on March 29, 2012

This is week 5 of a Lenten book study of Grace upon Grace  by Dr. John Kleinig.  For reasons not all that clear to me, I’m a week behind.   I don’t know if it’s the fact that we’ve had so many perfect spring days that I can’t bring myself to do anything but enjoy it […]

taco casserole

You can thank Stevie for this taco casserole recipe because here’s exactly what he said at dinner. Stevie:  ”Is there a recipe for this?” Me: “No, I improvised because I’m so desperate to go to the store and had to use what I had on hand.” Stevie: “I want you to go write it down […]

Sometimes the gratitude hovers like fire.


Spring Chicken

by Edie Wadsworth on March 22, 2012

What do you do when you’re no longer a spring chicken and you know it? You drive like mad to the nearest seller of spring chickens and you buy 6 of them in the name ‘home education’. Your children crown you mother of the year.  Again. And then you start a Pinterest board called chicken […]

Why I’m Not Fan of Disneyland

by Edie Wadsworth on March 16, 2012

At the risk of being thrown out of America, I’m gonna go ahead and say it—-I hate giant theme parks. I’m a little scared to say it out loud because people are crazed for them.  How do I know this?  Because I went to Disneyland yesterday and I’m fairly certain that half of California was […]


orange blossoms

In this modern era of the revival of new age practices, many christians are frightened by meditation.  We wonder how to meditate in a way that is orthodox and God-pleasing.   Dr. Kleinig is the perfect teacher on this subject.  I loved this chapter with all it’s Christ-focused and practical advice.   But since I’ve […]


The Pearl Event II :: The Double Strand

by Edie Wadsworth on March 12, 2012

My heart is so full.  It was a beautiful weekend full of God’s grace and love. I went to the event with so much expectation (and anxiousness) about meeting my wonderful friends in person and hoping to share Christ’s love. It didn’t take me long to figure out that He had brought me there to […]

{homemade} vinaigrette recipes

vinaigrette recipes

I haven’t bought store bought dressing in ten years and when I do have occasion to eat it, I’m always disappointed. Well, that’s a bit of a lie. I do from time to time buy ranch dressing so my girls will make nice will their carrots. But dressings that we eat on salads? Only homeade, […]

You Make Beautiful Things

by Edie Wadsworth on March 4, 2012

I had the privilege of hearing my two oldest sing yesterday at the Ridgecrest Youth Conference. After living through a horrific tragedy and watching  God make beautiful things from dust, this song is my grateful anthem. You think you’re raising your kids but they’re really raising you. (Thank you to my mother-in-law for that very […]


Alabama Road Trip
