What is grocery shopping like for you?! I think that all of us can find grocery shopping just a bit crazy at times, especially with children and a full schedule. Getting to the store, through the store, and back home while staying sane is a quite an accomplishment. For me, even with one little man, grocery shopping has become a much bigger ordeal.

Andrew and I planned on having a home birth, and I wanted something comfy and cute to wear! Now when it comes to having a baby, modesty seems relatively impossible!

We had a delicious lunchy dinner, complete with cheesy, bacon, and onion stuffed burgers (Oh my, YUM!), and started the first time ever Fourth of July Olympics. It started off with teams of two competing each other in foosball and pool and rounded off with bean bag tosses, yard darts, and a water balloon toss. Andrew and I…

November 30th, 2011 Susanna Biddinger Fact or Fiction Across the ages, many have debated over the authenticity of the Bible. Since its birth, many have sought to destroy the Bible. Many have persistently argued that this ancient document is riddled with errors, while young and old have died for its preservation and unwaveringly defended its contents. Being written over a span of about 1,500 years, on three continents (Asia, Africa, & Europe), and in three separate languages (Hebrew, Greek, & Aramaic), the Bible stands out as a much different document than any other, religious or otherwise. Over forty authors penned…
