When I arrived at St. Theodore’s there was a painting (I think in the Library) that is a depiction of Jesus laughing. Now his laugh wasn’t just a smiling chuckle. It was a throw your head back, mouth wide open, from the belly, boisterous laugh.  While I am not partial to such...

The month of July has been just berserk for me and my family. Planning for Arts Camp, working on curricula for Christian education, daily ins and outs, and of course, my father’s death. As I told Ivee a few days ago (I think that’s when it was anyway), “July has been so long I...

My youngest daughter, Clélie, will be 3 years old in July. Her energy and zest for life are amazing. (Quite frankly, at 45 if I could harness it and bottle it, there’s not much I wouldn’t do to  make it happen.) Clélie does just about everything and anything full...
