Just a word…

I’m heavy-hearted today…so many around me are going through a difficult time and I just want to send a word of encouragement to you. You are LOVED and prayed for today. GOD’S WORD is the HOPE we have in difficult days. My prayer for you is that you will HOLD ON to the hope that is in you!

Pick up a penny…

It was several years ago that I heard a statement that I can never seem to get out of my head and my heart (not that I want to!).  My husband preached a sermon on compassion and had given every family in the congregation a token reminder of this principle: “Every Person Matters” He had…

The Value of the Unlikely

At the risk of sounding like I’m plugging my husband’s book, “Warriors in Hiding”, I HAVE to say that this principle of God using UNLIKELY people has been filling my mind lately. After witnessing the incredible life and death of my sweet father-in-law, I was again reminded that it’s often the humble and unlikely person…

DIY Quick and Easy Pillow Cover

I have always said, SIMPLE is best, and when it comes to furniture, I LOVE my leather. It’s easy to clean, lasts long, and since NEUTRAL is always my first choice for big items, and you can change the pillows to change the look any time you want with little investment. This summer I saw a DIY on…

Life’s a Puzzle…

If you have read my previous post, “May the Words of My Mouth”, then you know we have spent the last 8 weeks in and out of the hospital with my wonderful father-in-law, who has end stage renal failure. This week he personally made the decision to stop the painful treatment that was keeping him…

Young Mom–“Some Days are Just Like That…”

Homemade Peach Cobbler…YUMMM!

Summertime is here and so are the PEACHES!!  There’s nothing like fresh peaches, and a local favorite is ECKERT’S FAMILY FARM.  From peaches in the summer to pumpkins in the fall, Eckert’s provides us with the best of every harvest. I actually prefer pie over cake any day, so when fruit is in season, I head to…

In Other Words…

When Doug and I moved into our home almost 7 years ago, I made the decision to SIMPLIFY.  My goal was to get rid of clutter and display only things that would represent my faith and my family.  Apparently, I am a fan of WORDS, because almost every room in my house has something to say!. Since…

Hello world!

It’s only in the beginning stages, but I’m excited to finally get into the blogging world!  My goal is to open a window of communication that will encourage women, young and old and those in between. God is the author of my salvation and the motivation of my heart-– I want to be ready, willing, and…
