Know the Difference

You know, I think most of us try our best to be good humans. At the very least, people try to be good at something. What makes life frustrating, however, is when you experience something that just isn’t fair. For example, like when you are doing your best and it’s still not enough. You still […]

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 […]

Love, Liz

About 14 years ago, I received a call from the nursing home that my grandmother wasn’t going to make it. I immediately called my husband to see if he could meet me there.

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.

Change

I always love it when I see that first leaf that reveals summer is coming to an end. Most of the leaves are still green, and then before you know it most of them have changed. There’s nothing like stumbling upon a rainbow of colors scattered around a tree. For me, this season is magical […]
