Birthday Bash 2013 Intro

Woo-hoo! It’s time for my annual Birthday Bash where I celebrate my birth month by giving YOU great gifts! Like I said on my Facebook Page, this was not my first choice out of the MANY takes we did trying to shoot it but it was the only one I could get to actually upload so […]

Book Review: Faith Leaps

     I “met” Alyssa online a couple of years ago and have followed her ever since for a few reasons. One is because her website has a lot of purple (which I read in the book is her favorite color! Woo-Hoo!) but mostly because everything she does is what I want to do…I want […]

Book Review: Hope Springs

I received a copy of Hope Springs by Kim Cash Tate to review in June and I don’t know why but I didn’t get a chance to read it until this week.  I have to tell you, the timing was perfect not only because the story starts off on December 23rd, the same day I started reading […]

Mirror Broken Mirror

And just like that, the mirror slid from the top of my makeup case and crashed onto the tile floor.  Shattered, Broken, Shiny pieces…Some so tiny, others large chunks. I cleaned up the mess and went on about my day but God kept whispering to take a look at that broken mirror. Ok, God, I […]

Just Another Statistic

This morning I was thinking about all of the statistics we hear and about how I don’t want to be just another statistic. You know the ones: 50% of marriages end in divorce 43% of people who marry young divorce within 15 years 66% of married people whose parents are divorced end up divorced also […]

Book Review: Stained Glass Hearts by Patsy Clairmont

 Patsy Clairmont shares her broken pieces of life with the readers and uses them to show that Christ can take all of those shattered dreams and make a beautiful work of art, like stained glass. At the end of each chapter, she has an “Art Gallery” where she points the reader to visual, musical, and […]

Even though…

I have felt God’s call on my life for years so I have served in a variety of ways…as a children’s Sunday school teacher, nursery director, choir,  VBS director, etc. In the past few years, I have really felt like I am supposed to step up and really mentor ladies but something, or should I […]

Leftover Masterpiece

My Sunday School class is currently going through Jonah: Navigating a Life Interrupted .  We are on week 2 and this morning as I was reading day 5, I was especially struck by what Mrs. Shirer says about how God can take our leftover messes and make beautiful masterpieces.  She gave the analogy of how […]

My One Thousand Gifts List

Inspired by the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, I decided to make my list of 1000 things that I love…things that make me smile…things that I see as gifts from God. I am starting this list on May 12, 2011 and will add to it as I think of things…I wonder how long […]
