Save on Hotels with Christian Hospitality Networks

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

We travel a lot. No, really, a LOT. As authors and speakers, we’re on the road more months than we’re home now. We used to picture speakers as those glamorous people who flew in to the conference, stayed in the nicest rooms, and had everything taken care of. Then we became speakers. We didn’t want to…

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

  The never-failing question “What’s for supper?” doesn’t go away when you’re on the road. The problem is that even eating from the dollar menu, a fast food stop could be $20 to $30–for lunch!

Q: What Can I Do When We’re Always In The Car?

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

We have a large family, and the dynamic is so very different. It seems like we’re spending most of the time getting the kids to their various activities and not a lot of coming together any more, aside from meals.  We have been through this at different times ourselves, and frankly, it doesn’t take a…

Pushing Mama Up a Mountain

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

I was so excited about taking our children to Yellowstone National Park. I’d been there with my family as a child and some of the happiest memories of my father, who’s been in heaven many years are centered around that area.
