Just Be You

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you…                  Jeremiah 1:5                 It amazes me, when I actually stop and meditate on that verse and what it truly means.  The God of all creation formed ME and consecrated ME.  He knew who I would be: […]

Diamond Elite

  Anyone who has the opportunity to park in a Hilton property parking space with a big blue sign is better known as a road warrior!  Yep. That’s me, road warrior!  If you have read some of my prior posts, you have probably figured out by now that I travel A LOT for work! It […]

Unleashed to Pray and Fast

It’s has been awhile since I posted.  Yet, I have enjoyed reading excellent words of encouragement and even some of the humorous sides of life from the bloggers that God has provided.  I am thankful for each of them for blessing my life as we do life together.

Hold on Tight!!!

  I absolutely love this picture my husband and I took a few weeks ago in the Grand Canyon.  It captures the silly fun times we enjoy together!  At the same time, it serves as a reminder of days gone by when our marriage felt as though we were dangling off the side of the […]

Ready, Set, Go A couple of years ago I was asked to go to Disney World and run the Princess Half Marathon – another of our Sister Chick trips.  Let me stress that I am not a runner – at all.  About 20 yrs ago I ran a 5K in Miami – I was much […]

Identity Crisis

When I first got married I loved saying and writing my new last name. It was ‘who’ I was… so I thought. Nearly 16 years have passed, we have raised and are still raising several children, we have had our share of  financial ups and downs, ugly public marital problems, many burnt pot roasts, pies and tears.

Lord, Melt My Heart with Your Love

“Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart.”  If you watched the movie “Frozen” then you might have picked up on this line.  I recently watched the movie with my daughter and was captivated!  Anna was willing to sacrifice her own life for the life of her sister, Elsa.   When Elsa realized […]

The Vanity of a Chicken

Who knew chickens liked to prance around in front of a mirror and admire themselves?  So much so they even root their other coop-mates out of the way to vie for more mirror time and space!  It’s true! I recently blogged about converting our out building into a hen house so we could gather farm […]

Need Is A Pretty Strong Word

  A couple of years ago, some friends and I took our first of many “sister chick” trips to Disney World.  While still at the airport we started writing down our favorite vacation quotes.  The best quote (and one we have used many times since) was heard while standing in line for the monorail.  A […]
