It has been a long time

Wow! It really has been years since I was last on my blog. to much has happen to write about now. I am a senior in colloge my oldest is a senior in high school. I was sitting here thinking if I could only stop time for a moment and just remember all the good days that have since past.. It makes me sad to think about all the great times we used to have together as a family. New chapters are starting for our family and it is a very sad time for me as a mother, but I know the Lord has great plans for our family, no matter what is going on right now. I Love you to the moon and back and dont ever forget that! As one door closes another one is going to open

Remember the childhood song, “Jesus Loves Me?” Sing that to yourself for a minute.

10 Ways to be a Better Friend




We all have them. Some are wonderful, others are not that great. Some are close and some are distant.

I find people interesting; and sometimes intimidating because of how introverted I am. It’s a lot easier for me to write an email to someone than talk on the phone. Because of this, I have had drama in my life. Miscommunications. Hurt feelings. Messes to clean up. You’d think I’d learn. Speaking to people face to face is the best way to communicate. And that takes time. Time is precious.

But then again, we spend time doing whatever we feel is important.

Over the past few weeks I have been led to take inventory of my time, my relationships, and my priorities. I’m not really all that pleased with what I am finding.

Does tragedy actually help gun rights?

Gun Owners of America

In much the same way that World War II got us out of the Depression, it is one of those things that is not wished for, yet the reality of it remains.  One should not seek out war in order to bolster a country’s economy, nor should one wish for tragedy in order to bolster their position.

Come Join an Online Mom’s Bible Study in January!

Beginning in mid-January I will begin an online study of God’s Wisdom for a Mother’s Heartby Bobbie Wolgemuth. Moms need encouragement. And this study looks like it will be practical and help encourage us moms to set priorities, teach obedience, how to pray for our kids, and how to help our kids form God-filled dreams. I’m excited about this!!

The study is meant to last 7 weeks. But I am going to stretch it out over 14 weeks. This will allow “life” to happen. And because this will be an online study, we’ll have discussion and accountability through comments.

If you are interested in…
