The Ride of Our Lives

The Ride of Our Lives

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth The past few weeks for me have been like a roller coaster ride at Disney World.  Emotions have been at an all-time high, sleep at an all-time low, and patience has been wearing thin. Our end-of-the-year conferences weren’t coming together like they normally do, and Farmer Dean was experiencing chest pains.  […]

When Life is Out of Control

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth I’ll never forget that afternoon I was driving home.  The road was slippery, the snow had been coming down steadily, and I was on my way home from running errands.  A few miles from a neighboring town, I answered my phone to hear my mother’s voice asking if I was home […]

The Path You Take

As I walked down the hill near my childhood home, I tagged along behind my family.  They were all busily taking care of kids and the dog, while making their way down to the park. I kicked the fall leaves with my feet and enjoyed the sound they made while crunching underneath my shoes.  It […]

Embracing God’s Best

 Today is a “Good Things of God” day at the Weckwerth Farm, and I’m celebrating the things in life that I find encouraging, comforting, and uplifting. Let me describe what it’s like here. The sun rays are bursting through the windows and warming the carpet where the sweet kitty, Melinda, is now sleeping. The windows […]

The Big Red Etch a Sketch

My youngest daughter, Jenessa, is an artist.  Ever since she was a little girl, she would sit down in the middle of the floor, her crayons, scissors, glitter and glue sprawled out beside her, and would begin the adventurous task of creating some new work of art. But on her 7th birthday, Jenessa received an […]

Facing Things Alone

This week was one filled with angst and trepidation and looking back, I thank God for the signs that He comforted me with as He reminded me … we are never alone. I think about it often … the days where no one can face what we’re up against but us.  Can you relate? There […]

Good Grief

Good Grief

The phone rang and I picked it up saying, “Hello?” On the other end was a dear friend sobbing, crying, barely uttering words. I said, “Slow down, deep breath, and start from the beginning.  Don’t miss any details.” I learned that line from Good Friend, Carolyn, years ago, and have used it ever since. My […]

Your World

By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth It was 19 years ago that I picked up the phone and answered politely, “Hello, law office.”  The woman on the other end of the line was very snappy.  Actually, snappy doesn’t even begin to describe it.  She was downright unkind. The voice began, “I want answers and I want them […]

Ginger Snaps & Jesus’ Prayers

The Ginger Snaps By:  Kathy A. Weckwerth When I was thirteen, I was a quirky kid.  I had a few kind friends from school and a few from church, but I mostly focused on my music for church (I played the piano each Sunday morning, Sunday night and Wednesday night) and loved to write songs. […]

Circle of Encouragement

Circle of Encouragement By: Kathy A. Weckwerth “What makes you do that?” the young girl looked at me with big eyes and asked almost apprehensively. “What?”  I questioned. “The encouragement thing.  You know, how you encourage people … why do you do it?” she continued. “Because in this world, there aren’t enough people encouraging others.  […]
