jonisblog-48.jpg I’m a wife, stay-at-home mom, vocalist, worship leader(semi-retired). I have lots of thoughts on lots of things. If you do too, please leave a comment so I won’t feel bad that no one is reading this! Did I mention I’m a little insecure? I hope you enjoy what you see.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my page…here is what i wrote: God bless you and thanks for stopping by…in regards to what you said about “God showed Adam he had a need that he didn’t realize.”
    I heard that too but im glad that you took the time to write it here…God bless..

  5. […] Joni is a stay-at-home mom who has, as she puts it, “lots of thoughts on lots of things.” This, thankfully, is something that works to our benefit for Joni manages to blog away the daily trials and joys of family life (as well as her own personal thoughts) with more than sufficient humor, candor, and insight. One of my own personal favorites was Joni’s musings on the issue of teaching Santa to children. […]

    i’m sure you’ve been told this, but you need to be not only a wife, stay-at-home mom, vocalist, worship leader(semi-retired); but also a writer. I love reading your posts, friend. As a mommy, i find them pertinent, poignant, perfect, and pfunny (silent “p”)…

    Mommies of the world… unite!


  12. hey found you thru RED’s blog. Love what you have here. Will be back for more!!
    God bless,


  13. Hey Joni! I found you through Scott Hodge’s blog. I absolutely LOVE what I am reading here. I was a stay at home then I was a working mom. Now I am a work from home mom which I absolutely enjoy. My son, David, is five years old. I am looking forward to connecting with you and reading your thoughts on being a wife and mom.


  14. Hi Joni. Just responding to your comment post on my site. Yeah its a bit of a late April Fools Joke, but I thought it was pretty funny. Sorry for making you go through all that trouble of posting and taking it back down again. Yea I’m a single guy and I always chuckle to myself when I see those eHarmony.com or Match.com commercials on TV. I thought this was a great added touch. They have a bunch of funny articles on there website. Enjoy! Maybe you can get someone too! Oh I see you follow Scott Hodge’s blog….he’s a awesome guy from what I can observe. Got to talk to him once too. Well off to bed. Good night.


  15. Thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving some feedback…did I mention that I too am a little insecure at times?.. 🙂
    sometimes after I post a blog it’s so silent you can hear a pin drop….then I start second guessing myself…but then I think to myself….oh well, I thought it was good, so I pick myself up, dust myself off, and away I go. By the grace of God, I have a wife who loves me JUST the way I am, for who I am., and that is very good! In His Grip. DM

    Joni, coming over from floatingaxhead, just really enjoy reading your blog – you make it look really easy, and fun – makes me almost want to start my own!

    Love the blog’s new look: very streamlined!


  18. Posted by madaline on August 9, 2007 at 9:12 pm

    Joni – still loving reading your blog. Hope you are well!! I’m doing well, God is Gooooood!


  19. Thanks for the comments on my blog! I just recently found yours, and have really enjoyed reading it. I have a 9-year-old girl and a 4 -year-old boy, with frequent visits by our 4-year-old neighbor girl (we have an amazing childcare swap thing going with our neighbors). I love what you write about what your kids say. So much fun.

    One question: exactly what is a ‘semi-retired worship leader’? And how do I get to be one?

    There was this guy see.
    He wasn’t very bright and he reached his adult life without ever having learned “the facts”.
    Somehow, it gets to be his wedding day.
    While he is walking down the isle, his father tugs his sleeve and says,

    “Son, when you get to the hotel room…Call me”

    Hours later he gets to the hotel room with his beautiful blushing bride and he calls his father,

    “Dad, we are the hotel, what do I do?”

    “O.K. Son, listen up, take off your clothes and get in the bed, then she should take off her clothes and get in the bed, if not help her. Then either way, ah, call me”

    A few moments later…

    “Dad we took off our clothes and we are in the bed, what do I do?”

    O.K. Son, listen up. Move real close to her and she should move real close to you, and then… Ah, call me.”

    A few moments later…


    “O.K. Son, Listen up, this is the most important part. Stick the long part of your body into the place where she goes to the bathroom.”

    A few moments later…

    “Dad, I’ve got my foot in the toilet, what do I do?”

    Thanks for welcoming us to the Orchard over on my blog. We can’t wait to get there. I’m so jealous….Larry is getting to come out next week and spend some time with all of you.
    I, also, can’t wait to buy ear muffs, snow/winter boots, actual coats, and all the other fun real winter stuff. In Texas, hoodies pretty well get us through the winter. 🙂


  28. Stopped by your site and enjoyed your latest post. I will be by the channel…

    Hi Everyone

    I just joined this forum.

    Great work forum crew!

    Yesterday I read that there is a cure for diabetes on http://www.healthcaredaily.org
    Is this way of curing diabetes mentioned actually true, If so I should have found out earlier! The website http://www.healthcaredaily.org looks legit

    Has anyone tried beating diabetes this way?

    Thanks a lot



  30. Hey Joni,
    I’ve been following you on twitter and here as well. You have great ways of putting things down. Thanks for letting us into your experiences.
