I “Press” On

Over a year ago, I decided to share a blog post I had written on my Facebook page.  It was a story about me and my daughters that happened several years ago- one that was especially dear to me.  Within about 5 minutes, I had a notification from Facebook that my article had been reported […]

less is more

Less is more. Even when it comes to the words we say. My husband says I’m the queen of the 3 minute sermon.  Having led worship at our church nearly every Sunday for the past 10 years, I’ve pretty much gotten the mini sermonette down to an art. Less is more. When I speak, what […]

The Secret

when things need mending

I have a favorite pair of shoes. They are nothing special.  In fact, one of the reasons I love them is because they reminded me of a pair of shoes a friend of mine had in high school a few…umm 20 something years ago.  They are a simple pair of Mary Jane black flats, made out […]

Kernels of Truth

                  “Oh, oooh!  Can I finish it?” my daughter begs as she holds up a plastic jar of “trail mix”.  This isn’t just some ole trail mix you’d buy from the store.  This is a home-made, one-of-a kind jar filled with sweet, salty goodness made by a […]
