For the Woman Who Struggles to Live Authentically

One of the hardest things to do in this life is to be authentic. We are sooooo afraid of what others think of us. Afraid?  We’re down right terrified!

Then I'll lament the past; but today, I'm throwing a ... [ Read More ]

Father’s Day Blessings

Howdy Friends! I've been quiet for a while. Truth be told, I've been enjoying going to bed early in an effort to rise early (about 6:30ish) to protect my quiet time with the Lord.  I was really scrubbing in that department - the quiet time department - so, I'm trying to turn over a new leaf.  So ...
