So what is with us Femina girls just checking out of the blogosphere and disappearing? Well, we didn’t mean to really. But here’s the update on what’s been going on.
First of all, though you haven’t heard from Rachel lately, the good news is that she wrote a book! Canon Press is releasing it, Lord willing, the day after Thanksgiving (which is also her 30th birthday!) and it is called: Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches. We are very excited about this and you should be too! It is full of her insights about practical Christian living as a mother of little ones. So that’s a good excuse for her, right? And after she hit the deadline, she just lay down on the couch and panted. I was going to wait to announce the arrival of this little book once I had a picture to go with it, but that should be coming soon.
Bekah decided life was a little slow, so she picked up two high-school lit classes to teach at Logos School this fall. She’s teaching the seniors British lit and the juniors Classical lit. She now has a whole new genre of school stories to add to her repertoire! She figured that since she had all five enrolled in the school, she may as well be there too. That’s why she hasn’t been putting up any new pictures of that fabulous old wall paper in her house. Oh! I almost forgot! She also just got a contract for fabric design (I am not kidding) with Timeless Treasures, so she just got the designs up and ready to mail off. We are so excited for her to get to sew with her very own fabric designs!
Heather is full-timing it with her kids, her house, and her busy husband, keeping everyone happy, especially cutie-pie Marisol who is on the verge of crawling. I am confident once the elections draw nigh, we will get a political post from her.
Meanwhile, I just hang on for dear life and ride in the wake of my children. While hanging on with one hand, I’ve been using my other one to do a few things of my own. I too have been teaching a class in literature at Logos (to the ninth graders) and enjoying it very much. Read, read, read. We finished The Song of Roland and are now breaking into Ivanhoe. Doug and I just got back from a delightful trip to Virginia where he debated, taught, and preached while I enjoyed lunching and shopping with those lovely southern ladies.
And, okay, I confess, I also got a book finished. This one is for the unmarried women, and it’s called Why Isn’t a Pretty Girl Like You Married? and other useful comments. Over the years I have led studies for single women, and I put all those studies together in one place. It’s about living the Christian life in a fruitful, faithful manner while in the midst of many married people. Thank you, Canon Press.
So please give us a warm welcome as we come back to our own blog! (Just kidding!)
