Around our house when you say, “I have been thinking . . . ” or “I have an idea . . . ” you’re likely to hear the response, “I thought I smelled smoke.” Hence the title of my blog. I intent to use this blog to share some of my thoughts on the topics that matter most to me: parenting, living a Christian life, finding happiness. That kind of thing. To begin with, many of my posts will be quotes from religious leaders that I really respect.
