Feature_Resolution By Gwendolyn Haley I’m avoiding the cookies. That’s my big New Year’s resolution for 2015.

In our first year of marriage, my husband and I decided that taking […]

Feature_HolidayTreats_Intro By Kelsey Hudson I am totally in the holiday mood. I’ve decked my tree (complete with my favorite C-3PO ornament), found all the best wrapping paper, and am even making a stocking or two. Seriously, the holiday season is here and I couldn’t be happier—mostly. With all that joy, Grinch is not my normal holiday […]

vegetables for soup By Kim Harshberger As with anything challenging, sometimes we just need a win to keep us going. It’s true with work, sports, parenting, and even hobbies. Sometimes those wins are hard earned, but the ones that come easy can be the most satisfying and invigorating. Do you remember that commercial with the mom in the […]

A Slice of Life

Posted in Explore and Discover, For You, kids, Parents and Teachers, Prime Time on September 11, 2014 at 6:00 am

Paying The Bill By Kim Harshberger I am not a cheery person. No one ever calls me sunshine. (Well, that’s not true. A salesman did. Once.) I don’t look on the bright side. I don’t give greeting cards with my presents. I don’t volunteer. I don’t have a community, or even many friends. I am terrible about asking […]

Feature_NoExcusesGuideToEntertaining By Cara Strickland I’ve always loved to have people over. While I enjoy meeting at a restaurant, coffee shop or wide open space, I like the personal nature of inviting someone into my home even better. At least, I like the idea of having people over.
