(photos all by  Lisa Price Photography) Remember back in October when I spoke at Allume?  Well, some of my friends from home came to the conference, both to support their scared friend and mostly to hear the likes of Ann Voskamp and Phil Vischer in person.  You know Phil, right?  The creator of Veggie Tales.

your real, new self

by Edie Wadsworth on February 19, 2014

I’ve been doing a lot of writing and soul searching and deadline meeting over the past few days.  I’ve also been doing very little sleeping.  Maybe you need this repost as much as I do. “Your real, new self (which is Christ’s and also yours, and yours just because it is His) will not come […]

Survey Results, Winners, and FAQ

We are enjoying the briefest and most beautiful of snow days—one that actually has snow, which is always nice.  I made chili and am contemplating starting some mocha cupcakes for Valentine’s Day.  I’m worried that I might be snowed in with them, which is not good for my thighs. Who I am kidding?  It’s gonna […]

Ode to Emotional Support {And a Love Story Link-up}

(photo via Life in Balance ) I started 2012 off with a bang.  And by that I mean, I had emergency surgery on my gallbladder.   I woke up on the morning of my birthday completely out of my head and asking for cookie cake.(So, in retrospect I guess I wasn’t completely out of my  head.) […]

The Fruits of Our Labor

“All the ancient wisdom tells us that work is necessary to us, as much a part of our condition as mortality; that good work is our salvation and our joy; that shoddy or dishonest or self-serving work is our curse and our doom. We have tried to escape the sweat and sorrow promised in Genesis […]

The Anatomy of a Snow Day in the South

by Edie Wadsworth on January 30, 2014

snowday1

Yesterday morning I woke up to this.  Did I just wake up in Ireland or some such? Everywhere I looked yesterday morning was a sight for sore eyes. Have we been whisked away to Narnia?  Are we in heaven?  Is C.S. Lewis here somewhere smoking a pipe? It’s the only day of the year that […]

YOUR TURN!

january

There’s snow on the ground here this morning, but it probably won’t last the day.  The kids are home from school due to the “wintry mix” and we’re packing up all your goodies from the Instagram sale.  I’ve also  been planning and scheming behind the scenes on future content for the blog, so I’m hoping […]

Light It Up

My girls were scheduled to do a few clogging numbers yesterday at a car show in our small town.  Yes, you read that right.  Trust me.  When you live in the foothills of Appalachia and your town is named Bean Station, you’re bound to find yourself at a car show some  Sunday clog dancing.  I […]

My {UN} Word for the Year

by Edie Wadsworth on January 14, 2014

Every new year, I find myself  planning and scheming for a better liturgy to my days. Because before you know it, your days become your life.  And as a mom privileged enough to work from home, I get a pretty huge say in what goes on within these walls everyday.  And I don’t just want […]

How to Find God’s Will for Your Life

by Edie Wadsworth on January 6, 2014

How to Find God

Grand Christian movements will rise and fall. Grand campaigns will be mounted and grand coalitions assembled. But all together such coordinated efforts will never match the influence of untold numbers of followers of Christ living out their callings faithfully across the vastness and complexity of modern society. ~Os Guiness I’ve always been one to have […]

Best of 2013, the posts

I don’t know about you, but I love a good New Year’s Eve at home with the kids.  We drag out the party hats, noise makers, the Scrabble game, our favorite tunes from the year, a big ole batch of chocolate fondue and party like it’s 1999.  Until about 10 pm, at which point, I […]

Best of 2013, the People

newyear

I just got back from a 4 mile run.  Perhaps the hardest run of the year, because, well, there’s been no shortage of fudge around here.  And, despite my knack for spending hoards of time in my pj’s lately, I’m determined to finish the year strong, aka, READ, RUN, START a quilt.   The last […]

1. A good stroll down Memory Lane Okay.  So, my 25 year high school reunion is this weekend.  (Let’s go ahead and have a moment of silence.) My sister sent me some photos to commemorate the special event and I nearly fainted.  This is the only one I can show you and still retain any […]
