“Feeding” a different beast

This past summer I spent the entirety of my time off in a period of self-care and healing. Working on and loving who God had created me to be. Part of that was understanding just how much I was loved. Through that process, I spent a lot of time in His Word, writing down a [...]

One Word: Hope

"This just doesn't seem fair. Now our insurance may go up because she decided to lie?" "Sorry, hun. Now it's a matter of principle. This time I filed a claim purely for justice sake. I am not paying for the damage she caused. I am not paying for her to lie and get away with [...]

Need an answer? Don’t Google it…

“I saw it on the internet.” “I don’t know. I googled it.” This. This is how we get our answers to many of life’s problems. To the things we don’t know. I am of the generation who had to research via encyclopedia. Trying to find out information on anything took more than 30 minutes; sometimes [...]

How are you….really?

The age old question..."How are you, today?" Then...the usual response: A painted on smile. A handy-dandy, "Good. Great.

a boy and his bible

Take hold of my instructions; don't let them go. Guard them, for they are the key to life.         Proverbs 4:13 "Mom! I'm ready!" This is the call from the steps, or the couch, or the bed of a little boy ready for his bedtime routine. After having lavender rubbed gently on his [...]

Let’s Be Honest

The king is pleased with words from righteous lips; he loves those who speak honestly. Proverbs 16:13 The boy above...the one with the laughing eyes, cool as a cucumber demeanor, and mile wide grin also happens to be the example of brutal honesty. Honest to a fault at times. Honest enough to even get himself [...]
