What If?

Posted on

Let’s just pretend, for those of you who do not believe in the existence of God or those of you who may, but don’t care to have a relationship with Him, or those of you who do believe in Him but are fine with keeping Him at a distance… Let’s just pretend for a minute […]

Lose Weight FAST!

Throughout history people have tried to be like God. Some have falsely abused power, wielding it over others, as if they knew the first thing about God and how He works…instilling fear to gain followers or a false sense of admiration or respect.

Jason and I celebrated 20 years of marriage in June, but since January, we’ve been dreaming and planning out the details for a trip to Spain, just the two of us.  We have spent hours and hours looking through books, reading reviews, mapping out our adventures, talking about it on date nights, road trips, in […]

So, this friend who is a missionary is home on furlough.  We […]

For Obvious Reasons

Posted on

This morning, I was reading some of The Picture Bible to Emily and Ryan as they ate breakfast.  Before Em woke up, I had been sharing with Ryan the meaning of Easter and the significance of this week in history, as well as modern day, so decided we’d read the days leading up to “Palm […]
