Of sacrifices, boomerang kids, and jammies that stick

March 29, 2012 Rhonda Schrock altarsliving sacrificeobedience

It was a funny little thing that happened one night at bedtime.  Things were not settling down overhead.  Every set of tail lights had headed north, but judging by the thumps and bumps filtering through the wooden floors, there was, if not an actual riot, a small village gathering, at the least.  The natives, it was […]

I’ll take a side of Novocaine with that handbag, please

March 27, 2012 Rhonda Schrock 03/26/12 Grounds for Insanity column

Note:  This “Grounds for Insanity” column was published in the 03/26/12 edition of The Goshen News. Of all the things that got me riled, grumpy, and unsettled, this one hit the top 10.  Reading the writing on the wall, my husband had said, “Now’s the time,” and he sent the tech on over. I knew […]

Cleaning up the world, one pair of jeans at a time

March 23, 2012 Rhonda Schrock budgetscleaningdirtlaundry soapsaving money

As many conversations do, it began with a status update on Facebook.  “I feel like such a pioneer woman,” I’d noted one Saturday afternoon, “cooking up laundry soap on my stove.  Just call me Ma Ingalls.”  And with this simple proclamation, there it went, women from Idaho to Pennsylvania to Ohio lighting up my wall, […]
