The 2nd Annual Corwin/Clemins Extravaganza!

The 2nd Annual Corwin/Clemins Extravaganza!

Ben and I set sail a few Friday afternoons ago for Seward for our 2nd Annual Corwin/Clemins Cabin Extravaganza! I’m sure you all remember our epic adventure last year and we really couldn’t wait to repeat! We were able to make it out of Anchorage around 1:00pm and arrived at the trailhead around 3:30. We were skinning […]

Jesus is Water

I’ve always loved water. In fact, right now I’m sipping on a big mug of… hot water. I know right, weird. But I love water. I especially love Alaska water. Ahh… refreshing and cold. Yum. I grew up hating all forms of juice. No joke, I didn’t like apple juice or orange juice or koolaid […]

Jesus is Light

I’m reading through the book of John and giggling at Jesus. I’m not sure if that’s the 100% right reaction to reading the gospels but Jesus is making me giggle. My, how he knew how to get those Pharisees and religious leaders going. He knew just what to say and just where their hearts were […]

First Fruits: His dying breath hath brought me life

I’ve been thinking a lot about living a holy life. And honestly, I’ve been trying to take some steps to get there. But just like I wrote in my last blog, living a life that reflects Jesus is the hardest thing to do in this world. My whole body and mind rebel against that call […]

Unleavened Bread: the call for a holy life

What does it mean to live a holy life, to walk a holy walk? This is a question I’ve been pondering as I plan for my Feast of Unleavened Bread. I’ve been pondering it because I feel as if I’m so far away from such a thing… a holy walk, a holy Katie… that doesn’t […]

Passover: the Passover Lamb

Keep two things in mind: Everything makes a lot more sense about the Week of Feasts if you remember that the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar. Each month of the Jewish calendar starts with a new moon and therefore, reaches a full moon in the midst of the 28 day cycle. Zola Levitt in […]

January/February Wrap-up!

January/February Wrap-up!

My, oh my, I’ve been slightly terrible about blogging about our adventures! January and February have been weird this year as it seems that a combination of weird weather, house projects and knee surgery has kept us from doing all of our usual activities! But I’ll try to catch you up on as much as […]

Emma Paisley

Emma Paisley

My little niece, Emma Paisley was born on 02/15/2013 to the loving arms of her parents, Jenn and Ricky, her Grammy, and her Papa. Ben and I waited and prayed for mom and baby all the way up in Anchorage and met little Emma P. over facetime just minutes after she was born. It was […]

Getting ready for Passover week!

Passover week entails three major Levitical feasts…. Quick caveat here. I still have so much to learn about Jewish holidays and feasts. You’d be surprised at how much I’d already learned and yet still have so much yet to learn. But with each feast, and each new round of research, I discover new tidbits. So […]
