Malin comes up with some deeply theological thoughts sometimes. Lately, it seems like she’s been popping out a new one every night when I come to pray with her and tuck her into bed. I wrote a couple of them down.

Malin: If you let Jesus into your heart just a little bit, he’ll grow and grow and it will get bigger and bigger.

Malin: Even if you believe that Jesus and God are 2 different people, when you get to heaven, you’ll just find one person – just one holy person.

Malin, praying: “….and hopefully Julia has a good time having her baby come out…”

And finally…. (not quite so theological, but thoughtful just the same) praying for our 2 friends who are expecting babies soon: “…and hopefully, Lauren’s baby will stay in as long as it can ..…. and hopefully Julia has a good time having her baby come out…”

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.
