Friendship

November 11, 2019

“Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold,” sing Girl Scouts around campfires across America. That’s easier sung than done in today’s fast paced life.

Your Purse is Too Full

August 10, 2019

I think it finally hit me in the Chick-fil-A drive through. I had just finished a long day in the office, two children in the backseat, waiting at a window for dinner, texting my husband to see where we could meet to pass off my three year old, so I could make it to a…

Maybe you’re volunteering all the time with your children, but can’t get your family tied closer together. Are you making good food choices, but can’t lose…

What’s the Do for You

August 10, 2019

The Bible is full of stories of people who were called to do things – they really didn’t feel qualified to do. What’s a cup bearer like Nehemiah know about building walls? What’s a man like Noah who’s never seen rain know about boats? One of my favorite unlikely heroes was Gideon – farmer turned…
