Missions, Serve The World

Sweetly Sent

Today is the day. I’m as nervous as I am excited, and I’d appreciate your prayers so much… For open doors to gospel conversations and faith sharing. I love the way my friend Christina put it in a text message yesterday: “Praying for unexpected opportunities and conversations with faith-filled responses.” Yes, that! Also…the forming of… Read More Sweetly Sent

Greece Is The Word (One More Week!)

I couldn’t help myself with that title. You guys know it refers to one of my favorite childhood movies and musicians, because even at age eight I was already a big Olivia fan. Thankfully, almost all innuendos were completely lost on me at the time. Being in second grade meant it was all purely “isn’t… Read More Greece Is The Word (One More Week!)

It Was Too Cold To Blog

 See what I mean?  You really can’t do anything in temps like that. The winter of 2015 was a deep freeze like we’ve never experienced before. And then my blog disappeared probably also due to the arctic temps. I had to rescue it from cyberspace by approving my domain name via Robert’s near-obsolete chilidogk AOL… Read More It Was Too Cold To Blog

Everyone’s Home

It seems like we have been scattered near and far this year, but today and for the rest of the summer everyone is at home, and it feels good. It’s not that I minded “the scattering.” Everyone in the Krum family had wonderful and necessary experiences off on their own, but it’s nice to be… Read More Everyone’s Home

Gluten Free Friday ~ Prada and Paleo in NYC

This experience and post should definitely be filed under “things you never thought you would do,” because spending three days in NYC for the purpose of going to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week is most certainly a thing I never thought I would do.  Actually, I’m not sure I even knew the event existed, so it… Read More Gluten Free Friday ~ Prada and Paleo in NYC

Stu and Rachel’s SoCal Wedding {Part 2}

Decadent gluten free waffles and pancakes, a worship service with old friends in Burbank, and an afternoon of beach volleyball ~ that’s what the Sunday after my brother’s wedding held.  We knew that our church-planting friends, Robby and Kim, had, in the last few years, moved from Burlington, VT to Burbank, CA to plant a… Read More Stu and Rachel’s SoCal Wedding {Part 2}

Second Half of the 2000 Mile Journey

 Well, we’ve been in Texas almost a week now, but I promised to share the second half of our journey, so here goes… (I’m sure you’re dying to know the details!) The first half was to Altoona, PA, and Loisville, KY.  Well, soon after we left our friends’ home in Louisville, we stopped at a… Read More Second Half of the 2000 Mile Journey

Gluten Free Friday ~ Camping Gluten Free

 Recently, I was asked to share my “emotional transition” story in having to adjust to a gluten free diet.  What’s funny is that I had to share that I  had a difficult time relating to those who were having an emotional transition, since I was just so relieved to discover that my son’s (the first… Read More Gluten Free Friday ~ Camping Gluten Free

And Then the Kids Came to Maine…

After Robert and I enjoyed 4 nights in Acadia and Bar Harbor, Maine, our friend, Lois, drove the kids up to meet us in Ogunquit.  I think we’ve spent time in Ogunquit, ME nearly every one of the 12 summers we’ve lived in Massachusetts ~ again, thanks to a very special couple and the studio… Read More And Then the Kids Came to Maine…
