“Mommy, do you know how long it took me to smile for this picture!!!!”
Look where Philo and the SuperHolies have landed!
I have been a committed bookworm ever since I could read. Why can’t reading be recognized as a top international achievement to be celebrated? We are exercising our minds after all!
Small specification: all my Sunday school students are angels- except my son, who spends most of the lesson devising elaborate ways to escape the class – it is a very heartwarming experience!
Same ingredients, same ratios.
I took a first sip in my car. Shock and disbelief!
It simply did not taste the same. In fact, my fangs grew longer, the hair became greener and a third arm was trying to sprout from my left shoulder.
On the best day, I feel like I have spun out of my own orbit a hundred times. Running from work to home, making supper, taking care of any household chores and then rushing to whatever sport/activity on the schedule for the night. I am out of breath simply recounting what an average day sounds like for most parents.
The idea came to me for the book when I was thinking about my son and his love of superheroes. I said to my husband, I wish Philopatir understood that he already has superpowers as a Christian child that are WAY more useful than a cloak of invisibility! So that’s where the idea of the Superholies came from.
I often wish I could go around with a “closed for renovations” sign around my neck. Imagine what that would entail? People have less expectations of any establishment that is “closed for renovation”.
I had found 4 “perfect” seashells, one pebble and an intense realization- and appreciation- of God’s mercy, acceptance and His longing for our salvation.
