  • It Takes A Village

    I told God at the beginning of this adventure that if he opened doors, I would go. As we loaded up and backed out of the driveway a few weekends ago, Isabella asked for about the tenth time, “mom where on earth is this place located?” I had been invited to speak at a church […]

  • Chosen Path

    Volleyball camp, science camp, baseball camp, church camps, new summer clothes, travel, and don’t forget the lifetime memories. Did I mention food and everyday needs that a family of 7 require?

    The Grinch or Santa Clause, Princess or evil witch, Mary Or Martha, Jesus or Satan! In so many different aspects of life, we must make the conscious decision to do good or evil. We either add or subtract to the world by the words we use and our choice to follow either God or Satan. […]

    The struggle is real. Quite possibly the most popular saying in today’s world. A saying that rings true through some seasons more than others. I haven’t sat down to type in over a week because honestly, I didn’t have a single idea what to say. There have been times in my life that I knew […]
