Hindsight Is 2020

I have had a lot of fun New Year’s Eves in my life.  I grew up in Prague, Czech Republic, where there is a new year’s tradition of lighting off fireworks willy nilly in the streets.  The effect is beautiful, mesmerizing, and let's be honest kinda dangerous!

Behold the Lamb of God!

Several years ago, for a couple of years in a row, we hosted a Christmas concert at Munger. Whatever you're picturing is wrong. "Holly Jolly Christmas" was not sung. No 7th graders played clarinets.

I Am A Terrible Room Mom

I am not cutesy or crafty. I am also terrible at small talk and correspondence in general – and yet, I find myself as a two-year-old class room mom. This is not my skillset. I know this may sound funny because, yes, I am a children’s ministry director, but I am normally just the idea … Continue reading I Am A Terrible Room Mom
