I absolutely loved everything about the ceremony – and most of all, I love the people who were in it. My husband officiated it, my other two sons were groomsmen, and my granddaughter was the […]

Can You Tell Her?

Opportunities. It’s funny how they sometimes land right in front of us, and other times we have to search for them like that lost sock in the dryer. The type of opportunity that I’m referring to is sharing the gospel with others. I want to let people know that they can spend eternity with God […]

Hope for you

We planted sunflowers and zinnias in our garden this year. Still waiting on the sunflowers to bloom. However, the zinnias are absolutely beautiful. I love all the different colors and details that make them all so unique. I recently decided to gather a few and make a bouquet. I’m not very experienced with this, so […]

Jesus – There’s something about that name
