My Prayer

Dear Lord, You already know what’s on my mind. However, you know how important it is for me to say this out loud. This Thanksgiving was so very different. Life is different. Every time I hear the phone ring, I know it’s bad news. We’ve lost a lot of people – not the normal age […]

Open the door

It’s Halloween. Most people think about decorating, dressing up, handing out candy, and parties. Some of those things come to my mind, however, losing my mom will always be right there at the top.

Pick Me

I have always loved Queen Anne’s Lace and I’ve often wondered how something so beautiful could possibly be a weed. If you’re not familiar with it, you can find it growing along a country road or next to a field. Be sure to look for it. Its unique design reminds me of a snowflake. Recently, […]

What’s holding you back?

You guys. If you read my previous thoughts about going to the Dominican, I hope you will read this one! I’m back home now, and oh my….. I’m so thankful I didn’t let fear stop me from going on this mission trip. Every single bad thing I thought might happen….didn’t. What I thought would be […]
