“That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:” I Peter 1:7 I claimed this verse during the very early months of my grief and it has very… Read More Three Lessons (I’m Still Learning) From Grief
I first think I owe all my friends somewhat of an apology…..as I was trying to decide which stories to share from our trip, my brain divided them into the good, the bad, the ugly – our trip was great but certainly got off to a rough start (ALL me) – and that lead to… Read More The Rest of the Story

I don’t live right… Read More A New Point of View
