Thankful for a Wonderful God to Praise in the Storm

I am so thankful that God is there for me each day. God is there for each of us, no matter what we are going through. Tonight, I received an email that made my face go pale. I had made suggestions to this person to avoid the exact thing that happened today. Last month, she… Continue reading Thankful for a Wonderful God to Praise in the Storm

Letting Go: No More Back-up Options for my Back-up Option

Boo! Today is Halloween! My kids go trick or treating every year. This year we planned to do something new. We planned to go to a Harvest Party at our church with rides, games and bouncy houses.

Everyone Can Change

Right now, I am struggling. My mom has stage 4 cancer. She started radiation and a chemo pill last Friday. The prognosis for Glioblastoma is two years at the most with surgery, chemo pills and radiation. One day, I think that I accept it, and I am at peace. The next day, I feel overwhelming… Continue reading Everyone Can Change

Nourished in the Words of Faith

This morning, I read the first book of Timothy in my womens bible study. I am mediating on one verse, "nourished in the words of faith". It sounds like we need the words of faith to live a happy, healthy life. A Good Servant of Jesus Christ If you instruct the brethren in these things,… Continue reading Nourished in the Words of Faith
