…In Honor of His and Many Others’ Efforts

 Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward. Free at last, Free at last, Thank […]

When Storms Come

  On Thursday afternoon, I made the dreaded trip to the grocery store.  We are under a Winter Storm Warning, so we must be prepared. You know the drill: milk and bread in every shopping cart.  When the forecast calls for extreme weather events, it’s only natural to prepare.  Even those of us who live […]

Fight the Good Fight

My sons are gamers. They have played video games since they were old enough to hold remotes in their little toddler hands. I have watched them over the last 20+ years beat game after game. If you were to ask one of them how they do that, they would tell you they begin with learning […]

The Little Drummer Boy

The Journey

The last 17 years of my journey with Christ has not been easy. I am a Mama to six, Mimi to three, working from home, and we are a homeschool family. It seems like I am always racing against the clock. Setting aside time daily to pray and study God’s Word is super hard but […]

Process Pattern of Prayer

Sometimes your heart is heavy about “stuff.”  You may not be angry…disappointed…not even sad. (“Well, maybe I have been a tad sad at times.  Smile.”)  Your heart is simply processing.
