If you are local to Charlotte you might have heard my baby sister, Emily chatting it up in the mornings with Eric on New Life 91.9.  They are doing a four-week series complete with videos (remember, they filmed them at my house?) based on her books Grace for the Good Girl and Graceful.  The first video is here, the second here, the rest…are yet to come.

Did you know that my dad, Gary Morland is a blogger too?  He started years before both me and Emily.  Dad’s the guy everyone goes to for advice.  He knows how to make decisions and is generous enough to share his thoughts with us.  I love his most recent post about How to Pray for a Sofa.  He also has two ebooks Scary Hope and From Beer to Eternity.

My husband recently spoke at our church.  If you are folding laundry and doing dishes today, click over and listen (you can even watch it if you want), he’s talking about : BUSY.

  1. So…I have this section in my Google Reader called “Healthy Christian Women.” You and your sister are in that section. Now, after reading your dad’s post on “Praying for a Couch,” I’ve added him.

    Hope you’re Dad doesn’t mind too much being labeled a Healthy Christian Woman! ;)

    • OH he is a dad of two girls, of course married to a girl, they have a girl dog and he works at a radio station where most of the listeners are women–he is SO used to it!

  2. Thanks for the great links. I loved the messages. Have a beautiful weekend.

  3. After listening to your hubby, I’m thinking that Mr. and Mrs. Smith are quite a duo! Thanks for sharing your family with us

  4. Fun family.


  5. Checked out your dad’s blog, and his “my awesome girls” page is too sweet! So fun to see a such a talented and Christ-centered family :)

  6. Love your dad’s perspective on praying for the sofa. I’ve been having that conversation in my heart constantly as we fix up and furnish our house. WHO am I doing this for? Do I really need this, that? How will it serve my family and friends? It’s a good thing to keep in mind when walking into Homegoods and that line between need and want gets so blurry!!!

  7. Dear Nester, Thank you so much for introducing us to your sister! Yesterday I listened to both of her first 2 sessions filmed in your living room. They were well done and challenging! Would you please let us know when the next two are available? I would so appreciate it! :)

  8. Oh my goodness! Your sister is a little angel, your husband, so wise and I have yet to listen to your father but these are all great messages at the perfect time. It’s so easy to lose the proper focus!

  9. Loved your husband’s message. I think I will listen to it again today…and then again maybe tomorrow. Please tell him thank you from me, and thanks to you for sharing.
