Giving Up Negativity for Lent

For Lent this year, I’m giving up negativity.  “Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25 NLT I’m not one to typically give up… Read more →

God Provides

Earlier this week my husband dropped off my car for routine maintenance, and he ended up leaving a couple grand lighter. This, of course, is the same week we had to call the vet to schedule a couple pricey procedures for our dear, aging pup. Oh, and did I mention I just went to the eye doctor to stock up on… Read more →

Patient Endurance

2015 was a challenging year for our little family, and deep down I think we knew it would be—we just didn’t know all the reasons why. So when I was challenged to come up with a guiding word or phrase for 2016, I really wanted to pick something like “joy,” but after prayerful consideration God led me to “patient endurance.”… Read more →

Little Artist’s Gallery Wall

In my post about Levi’s Toddler Room I mentioned that we were planning a little artist’s gallery wall to showcase our son’s artwork. Well, we finally have it up. We decided to place it on the only wall in his room that was completely blank at a height just high enough that he can’t pull everything down right now. Thanks, Honeybee Vintage, for… Read more →

Lovingly Handcrafted Baby Blankets

Just like her mother and grandmother did before her, my mom quilts. Over the years she has lovingly crafted quilts to welcome new babies. She made baby blankets for me and my sisters and now has made gorgeous quilts for both my children. She’s currently planning one for my sister, Kayla, and her husband’s, Dylan, firstborn, due in September. My mom—known to my kids… Read more →

I am thrilled to announce that we welcomed Alexia Grace LeFevre on Monday, March 16, 2015 at 3:13 p.m. She weighed 5 pounds, 15 ounces and was 19 inches long.

Alexia Grace’s Nursery

Now that the nursery is finished and I’m becoming increasingly uncomfortable at 36-weeks pregnant, I’m excited and more than ready to meet our sweet, little Alexia Grace. Celebrating the birth of four friends’ babies in the past few weeks may also be contributing to my eager anticipation. Before we could even start on the nursery we had to downsize our office and… Read more →
