What Faith Can Do

A friend of mine gave me a bag that says that and every time I read it, I think, “YES! I KNOW that God will!” There is a song about what faith can do and from the first time I heard it, I loved it. I will literally play it over and over. I know […]

Social Media Bandwagon

One of the things that I enjoy doing as a virtual assistant is help businesses jump on the social media bandwagon.  Often, the business owner really wants to get into the  world of Facebook, Twitter, blogging, etc, but just doesn’t have the time to dedicate to it so I get to do it for them. […]

Pray Without Ceasing

I receive phone calls & see posts on Facebook frequently about people looking for prayer for themselves, a family member or a friend.  There are so many people who are needing prayer. I fully believe that God answers prayers…just not always the answer we desire. You can’t just order what you want off of the […]

Playland Party Zone

Today we were supposed to do “Craft Day” with one of the homeschool groups we are involved with but because I put the wrong time in my calendar (see, I DO make mistakes sometimes!) and realized yesterday that it was later than I thought so I wouldn’t be able to go.  My youngest was really […]

Preschoolers In Our Classroom

I have been watching kids in my home since my daughter was around 3…she is 16 now. People often ask how we can possibly homeschool with the extra little ones here.  It has taken a little adjustment but we do it and it works! Yes, some days we have to do some school work later […]

Facebook Pages for Business

Did you know that Facebook Terms of Service states “Profiles represent individuals and must be held under an individual name, while Pages allow an organization, business, celebrity, or band to maintain a professional presence on Facebook.”? If you set up your business as a “friends page” and your profile gets shut down by Facebook for […]

Sometimes when you come across a website, you simply think “Now, why didn’t I think of this?”  This is one of those times! Allow me to introduce you to Perfect Potluck, a brand new website that is a FREE online tool for coordinating your group meals.  Have you ever planned a large gathering and had […]

Coupon Lesson

At the end of each month I try to gather up all of the expired coupons and mail them to an overseas military base because the service personnel can use them for up to 6 months after they expire. I pick a different military base each month from the list on Grocery Saving Tips.  Unfortunately […]

The Day After

So you are probably wondering how I am doing the day after I walked my first 5K…well, I gotta tell ya, I was soooo sore this morning! I kinda figured I would be so I sent my Sunday School director a text yesterday to let her know that I was calling in “immobile”.  My legs […]

My First 5K

Well I did it! I walked in my first 5K this morning. Here I am with my friends, Amy and Renee, standing at the starting line when it was still dark and early outside. These two are really the reason I did this. Last year they ran in the 5K and Amy, the one in […]
