Off to the Races!

I'm neither a horse fanatic or betting woman, but I love the idea of the Kentucky Derby & have always wanted to go. Let's be real. It's probably the hats & seersucker that makes me fantasize the splendid day of racing. Not to mention, mint juleps sound like a good time! Once a week I [...]

Purim, Pastries, & Paper Crowns

The timing of this celebration is really sweet because I just finished a 'She Reads Truth' study on Esther which is the origin of Purim. If you aren't familiar with the story of Esther go check it out then come back! Esther has always held a special position in my heart. Mom & I got [...]

Thanks-fetti

I am a STRICT no Christmas-until-after-Thanksgiving celebrator. (Although I must confess that I broke everything I stand for by listening to Ben Rector's new Christmas album, but can you blame me??) Hear me loud and clear: Christmas is my favorite holiday. But I am an equal opportunity holiday celebrator. I think Thanksgiving deserves it's time [...]

Every day has a designated day to celebrate something...isn't that wonderful?!! October 4th was National Golf Lover's Day. At the community center I oversee I have at least one golf lover, so this day was really made for him. Typically, to celebrate one of these non-traditional holidays we'll give a brief history of said day, [...]

Celebration as a Spiritual Discipline

There are several things that count as spiritual disciplines such as Sabbath, gratitude, & fasting. You're probably thinking these all sound real religious, but when you break them [...]
