Marriage is like the Tour de France–so keep pedaling

July 29, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: With the completion of a Schrock summer favorite, the Tour de France, The Lively One is sharing this favorite from the archives. Who knew that a bike race’d contain marriage lessons? Viva la France! Who would’ve thought a race like that could be so fascinating? In a household where the sports channel (whispering here) […]

In the night, there’ll be light

July 25, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

If you’ve been reading the blog for any length of time, then you already know a tiny part of my story. You know that we have four sons. You know that one of them strayed, and you know that the Lord brought him back. What you don’t know (unless you’ve walked it) is all that’s […]

Do it anyway

July 23, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This post is written from a writer’s point of view. In no way do I think that writing is harder or scarier than what you’re called to do. It’s just that…writing’s what I know. Your “thing” is different than mine, and that’s great!  Being a writer is a different occupation. Someone said that it’s the […]

Schrock boys could add excitement to the White House

July 21, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: For the first time in the column’s history, Grounds for Insanity ran in the Sunday edition (07/20/14) of The Goshen News. The front-page shout out made its writer happy, and she hopes that getting it one day early will make you happy. What a wonderful time of year. As I write, a summer rain […]

Find blessings, happiness where you are

July 15, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: This Grounds for Insanity column was published in the 07/14/14 edition of The Goshen News. It was a quote that came through my news feed. Where many inspirational thoughts evoked laughter or comfort or fuzzy, warm feelings, this one struck like a bullet. “If we do not feel grateful for what we already have, […]

The ground at the foot is level (we are family)

July 10, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

“I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able.” The notes ring clear, words spilling from lips to tumble up, up, up to the rafters… In a tiny chapel ‘neath skies of blue, we’ve gathered. There, where hawks ride the thermals, circling high above ridges; there in the place where Nowhere […]

All I really needed to know, I learned at the baseball park

July 8, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: This Grounds for Insanity column was published in this girl’s paper of record, The Goshen News, on July 7, 2014. Rhonda expresses her gratitude to a stellar gentleman, Coach Curvin, who has made the last two years in Pee Wee League some of the very best. Thanks, Coach. And thanks, Little S. After a […]

When you need to be pulled from the net

July 3, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

In the midst of the morning hustle, souls racing about, it’s Him and me. Alone and still. I open the Word. And the psalmist speaks. “In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust. Let me never be ashamed. Deliver me in thy righteousness.” Inside, I’m nodding. “Bow down thine ear to me.” The old, […]

Language is tricky; singing (not sinning) encouraged

July 1, 2014 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Note: This Grounds for Insanity column was published in the 06/30/14 edition of The Goshen News. Wait. Is that ‘Noos’ or ‘Noose?’ No, I think it’s ‘News.’ 😀 It was a small letter, but the difference it made was big. “The patient recently sold her hose.” Wait. What? I looked at what I’d just typed.
