You can go ahead and call me Ellie May Clampett, what with me hauling couches down the interstate and trying to keep from being impaled by a chair sitting very precariously in the passenger seat, all the while holding 3 chickens.  Okay,  it was one sofa and I wasn’t holding chickens, but it wouldn’t made […]

When Steve bought forty acres of land in the Clinch Mountains ten years ago, I couldn’t see the vision.  He had gotten his first raise from work and decided not to add it to our normal budget.  He set up a separate account for the extra money and then bought a farm in the mountains. […]

Since we took a break from homeschooling this year and my girls are at a Classical School, I’ve had to figure out what to do with my time during the day.  I DON’T do it all and for everything I say yes to, I say no to twenty more things.  I am loosely organized with […]

(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.

I drove to Knoxville while the sun was still trying to peak over the horizon, listening to Ray LaMontagne and Scott Avett.  The hour’s drive passes easy when there’s good music.  I looked down at my list trying to figure out how to do the ten things I had scribbled down before time to truck […]

This is an update on a post I did about paperwork and since I’m a right-brained, creative, ADD, fly-by-the-seat-of-my-skinny-jeans kind of a girl, I thought you’d like to know that tax season didn’t stress me out at all. This system has worked well for me for the past two years, so I think I finally […]

The first time I read Chesterton, I was on a flight with 2 friends for a girl’s weekend. Yeah, it’s not exactly chick lit, if that’s what’s you’re wondering.  I was in a stupor when we reached Tampa, because well, CHESTERTON.  If you haven’t read this book, it’s probably in the top 5 of my […]

I must have been about 7 years old when I rode in Daddy’s red Ford truck over to the Little River to fish off the train tracks.  He used corn right out of the can for bait.  I mostly ate the corn and asked a lot of questions.  Daddy shushed me and showed me over […]

I did a radio interview with Issues, Etc yesterday on the dignity of vocation.  I was nervous as a cat on a hot tin roof, but after the brilliant editing of Jeff Schwarz and the genius interviewing skills of Todd Wilken, I survived and it turned out okay.
