Making It Your Own

This whole week I’ve been busting my tail to paint my new office and desk and put my new space together so that I am ready for my first day of my new full-time job on this coming Monday. I’m super excited and it’s going to be gorgeous!!!  Thankfully, Lee has been right by my […]

Thinking VS Doing

Did you know there is a difference between thinking about doing something and actually doing it? This may sound ridiculous, but it made a ton of sense this past Sunday when my pastor asked how many of us thought about reading the Bible and then asked how many of us actually DO IT. The number […]

Looking Forward

As I see the summer coming to an end, I find myself looking forward to the new school year and all of the exciting things it will hold. Go figure, but my boys are not nearly as happy as I am that the summer is over and it’s now time to get down to business…hee, […]

It’s Gonna Be Us Some Day….

Last week was full of tragic stories of loss.  It seemed everywhere I turned there was another heartbreaking tale from friends and family. The 25-year-old cousin of my nephew who overdosed after a long-term sobriety, two teenagers lost at sea who were friends of a friend of mine, the 45-year-old acquaintance who died of a […]
