What a cute problem

The other day, I noticed that there was a tube of Preparation H on our bathroom floor. I didn't put it there. My wife didn't put it there. Neither one of us knew how it got there. Neither one of us even knew when it showed up. For all we knew, it had A...

Birthday Suits

My husband recently had a crazy idea. He read a health article on the benefits of sleeping in our “birthday suits”. I was a bit skeptical at first, especially since I have two grown boys living at home and the dogs and I make frequent trips to the restroom during the night (mine is inside, theirs outside :)). I’ve been trying to get to bed earlier to get on a healthier sleep schedule, so I committed to a firm “lights out” at 10pm. This is way too early for my night-owl hubby… So armed with my big fluffy housecoat on the edge of the dresser, I slipped into bed just me and my birthday suit. Even with my heating blanket turned on high, I laid there and shivered. I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it! After Zoe (our German short-haired pointer) jumped up into bed with me and the heat off her helped settle me in, I finally dozed off.

I woke up at 1am with a sharp cramp in my foot. Probably because it was frozen! I got up to walk it off, yes – in my housecoat. I made my ritual trip to the restroom and let the dogs out. This time, as I headed off to bed, John was ready to join me. We both slipped back into bed in our birthday suits. Now it made sense! I had to turn off the heating blanket…

In the morning, I shared with John about my experience and how it doesn’t work if there aren’t two of us – I was literally freezing. I thought about what God would have to say about this and was reminded that scripture tells us, “A man […]

Choose to Love

I’m so excited to start my own blog! I thought it would be a good idea to start my first blog with an introduction. So here goes…

Hi, my name is Danielle Scherer. Everyone calls me Dani. First and foremost, I am a follower of Jesus! Second, I am a wife. I have been married to my wonderful and amazing husband, John, for 26 years! Yep, 26 years… Everyday is a new day. Every day we make a choice to love each other. I love him more today than ever!  I’m a mother of three beautiful, healthy children — Aaron (23), Angel (22), and James (20). I love my kids very much and am so proud of the amazing, young adults they’ve grown up to become.  I also have furry kids :).  Zoe (a 8 yr old German shorted-hair pointer / dobbie mix), Simon (a 2 yr old Shitzu), and a gecko who will out live us all.  If we weren’t currently renting, we’d probably have a dozen more rescues, but three is enough for now.  hahaha

2012 Scherer Family Christmas Picture

My “motto” – for lack of a better word – is “Choose to Love”. I’m very passionate about helping those who are hurting and broken. There is hope! We’ve experienced a lot of trials and tribulations, but through them all God has made us stronger, deepened our faith, and we’ve grown closer together. My passions include building up healthy marriages, making families whole through adoption, church plants, financial peace, animal rescue, the elderly, weight-loss management, and business start-ups. As I’m sure you’ll hear a lot more about my family, I promise to share more about my passions as time goes on.

I love keeping busy […]
