What should we do with the Planned Parenthood information?

What should we do with the Planned Parenthood information?

I’m pretty sure we are all aware of what is going on in the news with Planned Parenthood. I cringe to even call it that….  from the time I learned what was going on behind those doors the entire organization has disgusted me. To be honest though, I have not watched a single second of any of the footage released nor have I read any of the articles. I just cannot stomach it. As a mother who has lost 5 babies,…

Three Things I would teach myself if I could go back in time

Three Things I would teach myself if I could go back in time

If I could go back in time and have a conversation with my younger self, there are a few things I would love to share with me.  Since that is just not possible, I thought I would share them with you! Since we can’t all meet at a coffee shop together, lets meet right here.  I’ve got my coffee with me, do you have yours? As I look back on my younger years I am flooded with memories of the…

There Is HOPE to raise Godly children today

There Is HOPE to raise Godly children today

I am a mother to three young children.  As a mom I hear all kinds of advice, some asked for, some not.  Everyone has an opinion of what a mother should or should not be doing.  From the start, once a baby is born a young mother is often overwhelmed with well meaning friends and family {and even strangers!} who begin to flood her with “try this”, “never do that”, “this is the brand of clothing and food choices you…

When the LGBT movement hits home

When the LGBT movement hits home

We grew up in the same home, were raised by the same parents, surrounded by the same siblings.  We are siblings.  All five of us have now grown and moved to various states across this country, yet one of my siblings has chosen to live a gay lifestyle. Did that just shock you?  Ya, it was a shock to me too. I feel rather vulnerable even now, opening up on here to share this with you all.  Yet, I feel…

Two truths of forgiveness

Two truths of forgiveness

We have a two year old in our house.  I can only imagine what thoughts just ran through your mind hearing those words!  Let me be straight with you though, I don’t hate the two year old year.  I really don’t. They are full of adventure, discovery, cute new words they learn, smiles, laughter, and joy! All that being said, we all know, if you have spent any amount of time with a two year old, that year is chock…

Three Lessons from Lot’s Wife

Three Lessons from Lot’s Wife

This morning in my personal Bible study I was reading about the wife of Lot in Genesis 19.  I read about how the angels were telling Lot and his family to get out of Sodom and Gomorrah because God was ready to destroy it!  From what I was reading, Lot and his family literally were dragging their feet in leaving. Lot had grown to love the cities he lived in and he planted his roots so deep there he just…

A Study in Proverbs 31:20-24

A Study in Proverbs 31:20-24

She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.  She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.  Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.  She maketh fine linen,…

Update on my book

Update on my book

This morning I got up with the plan to head {all the way across the grass!!} over to our church.  I had just finished gelling my curls locks and was on the hunt for my flip flops when my phone buzzed with a new message. Curious I picked it up and read….. it was from the publishing company I had sent my book to. The one I had been waiting a month to hear back from. My heart flipped and…

Memorial Day

Memorial Day

In the fall of 1999 I was blessed to be able to travel with my Senior high school class all the way from the west coast to the east coast.  An early morning flight landed us mid-day in the heart of our nations capitol. It was the trip of a life time.  Seeing History come alive was truly incredible!  I remember seeing Lincoln’s Memorial at night, it was beautiful!  I’ve never been the History buff my husband is, but that…
