The Five of Us, Spring 2014


Title. Did you notice it? Aaron thinks it's "not as descriptive as 'Rachel's Blatherings' was." What do you think? I think "Rachel's Blatherings" is just about the same as saying "Rachel's Blog" which is about to put me to sleep right here on my keyboard!

I just like the way "S Cubed" sounds when you say it out loud. But, most of you probably aren't saying it out loud. And, I don't really like the way it looks typed out.

So, any suggestions? Comments? Hey, that gives me an idea: "Confessions of a Comment Junkie." Yeah. The hardest part (for me) of writing a sermon or teaching is the title. It's either flat or waaaaaay too goofy. Help me! Save me from myself!

I definitely like the word "blathering" -- its descriptive and fun... but not too predictable.
Just like you! :)

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
