Pinterest is an amazing thing, and by amazing I mean an unimaginable time-sucking, black hole of inspiration that can either brighten a person's day, or cause them despair over their own lack of creativeness. The other day while I was wasting time taking a break and scanning the latest pins on Pinterest, I came across this… Continue reading To Journal or Not to Journal, That is MY Question
"But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin." 1 John 1:7 Our LORD is amazing and He works in ways we couldn't begin to imagine.

When I chose FAITH, I didn't know how it would affect my life. I just knew that after prayerful consideration I felt led to choose it.

He is working on having eight teeth inside his once gummy little mouth. Some times, this isn't bad, but there are… Continue reading Building Character One Tooth at a Time
Honestly, the title of this post should have been "Trying Really Hard to Parent the Way God Would Want, but Failing Miserably Every Step of the Way". Unfortunately, that title was a little too long, and didn't really set the positive tone I'm trying to make a daily part of my life. There are many… Continue reading Parenting with the LORD
Every year people make New Year's resolutions. They're going to get in shape, lose weight, join a gym, eat better, drink less, read more, the lists of changes go on and on.
