Stop What You’re Doing

If you’ve ever suffered physically in some way from the heat, then you will be able to relate to this experience. You will most likely remember your details like it was yesterday because it’s scary, a bit embarrassing, and a good reminder to be prepared when you’re out in 90 degree temps. My husband and […]

P.S. I Love You

  I’m one of those people who tends to hold things in. I’ve worked on this lately – especially the past 6 or so years. I’m improving, but I still struggle with it. There’s nothing worse than that moment when you feel those emotions surface when you least expect them to…. and then they explode […]

That One Thing

Do you have that one thing that you’re afraid to admit you’ve never done? I mean like something that even your closest friends assume you’ve done because they know you know it’s important.

Fear Not – He Has a Plan

Do you trust that God can use something bad for the good? When I read the following, it revealed something that I needed to hear. Maybe you need a change in perspective, too. Betsie and Corrie ten Boom spent time in a concentration camp for hiding Jews in their home during the Nazi occupation of […]

Jesus is More

I’ve been searching for a good book to read. I am so tired of reading the same…..old…..thing. Know what I mean? It’s like everyone jumps on the bandwagon and focuses on the same topic. Too often I find myself skimming over words without really reading them because I swear I just read the same thing […]

Are You a Loser?

Interesting thing happened at preschool this week. If you are reading this, please understand that I do love this little girl who I’m about to talk about. She is only 4 and is still learning – that’s what preschool is all about. I know without a doubt that there is a good lesson in this. When […]

Sometimes Taking a Stand Means Standing Alone

    Just finished reading a remarkable book – Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. It’s a novel written about a boy, Auggie, who was born with a facial deformity. He was homeschooled up until the beginning of 5th grade–when his parents took a giant step of faith and enrolled him in a school.  This story holds […]
