Being remade…and a song I wrote about it

 “Remade” I used to live my life so unaware I didn’t know You or that You’d care About my thoughtless sin and casual lies until the day You opened up my eyes and the moment I knew what I’d done the price had already been paid by Your Son May I never forget what You’ve […]

The Peace of Jesus

when strife comes my way all I have to say is “yes” to His perfect peace   Sometimes I can feel the storms brewing between my two girls.  You know the warning signs… their talking gets a little faster, the volume becomes slightly elevated and higher in pitch…a door slams, and then the yelling ensues.

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em

I have a little confession to make- I do NOT like loud noises.  Of any kind.
