So much of worry starts in a battle of the mind. Our thoughts consume us to the point that we start wondering if what could happen, probably is going to happen–and that’s […]
I was nominated by a sweet friend on Facebook to name ten books that have stuck with me over the years, but decided it was easier to blog about it rather than […]
Sometimes… A girl’s just gotta cry. Sometimes it is joy, sometimes it’s grief. Sometimes it’s both–at exactly the same moment. The wonderful and the painful joined together in such raw emotion […]
There’s not a soul on this earth that has taught me more about prayer than my children and grandchildren. The honest prayers of my precious little ones have moved me to tears […]
Wow. The preacher steps on your toes and doesn’t even apologize… He doesn’t need to, really–it’s not his fault that the Truth comes, walks straight down that aisle… right into the pew. […]
