Why I Gave Up Homeschooling

by Edie Wadsworth on July 29, 2013

Why I gave up homeschooling via lifeingrace

How glorious the splendor of a human heart that trusts that it is loved.

Home. On Purpose

by Edie Wadsworth on April 30, 2013

This indeed, was a home, – home, -a word that George had never yet known a meaning for; and a belief in God, and trust in His providence, began to encircle his heart, as, with a golden cloud of protection and confidence, dark, misanthropic, pining, atheistic doubts, and fierce despair, melted away before the light […]

40 Days of Water

by Edie Wadsworth on March 18, 2013

or otherwise titled “me and my crappy Lent” Well, I’m sitting here, early on a Monday morning, looking longingly at the week ahead and wishing I had prepared more.  And also wishing I hadn’t been deathly sick for  a week.  Nothing ruins a good Lenten season like illness.  My baby’s birthday is this week and […]


Fab. Check it.

by Edie Wadsworth on March 15, 2013

The irony is not lost on me.  I’ve never felt less fab in all my life.  I’ve been sick for a week and now my wicked upper respiratory virus has morphed into bronchitis. Yay, me. But I am excited about partnering with all the fab stuff on the Fab website.  I curated a little board […]

Lisa Leonard Designs {and a giveaway}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 2, 2013

We are starting love month off with a bang here in my little corner of the world. This was my first Lisa Leonard necklace.  Or was it my third.  Anyway, I’ve loved her since the beginning of blog time. I met Lisa and her sweet sister at Blissdom and I’ve so loved watching Lisa’s business […]


Plato, introduction

by Edie Wadsworth on November 16, 2012

I’m so behind with bookclub.   I’m so overzealous in every part of my life.  I want to do and learn and see and cook and read EVERYTHING. But, alas, there are only so many hours in the day. I hope you’re reading and please accept my pathetic apologies  for the delay on Plato’s introduction. […]

another reason to love homecoming

by Edie Wadsworth on July 21, 2012

I’ve been waiting with baited breath for my tomatoes to ripen. Everyday, I check the garden in hopes of juicy red manna from heaven. Of course, as soon as I leave, they do their thing. Just another reason to anticipate my homecoming. I have been unbelievably blessed and inspired this weekend. I’ve sat under the […]

Our (slightly nerdy) Summer Plans

by Edie Wadsworth on June 8, 2012

My girls just finished 5th grade. That means I’ve homeschooled them for 4 years—-even  through a family tragedy—–and somehow managed to keep us all alive.    I was hanging on by a thread at the end of this school year. I wanted it to be over. I wanted to do anything but finish. But we […]
