The title of this post sounds like something you’ve heard kids scream on more than one occasion, right? Unfortunately, I hate to admit that those were the words that popped out of my mouth one night about a week ago when my husband and I were upstairs playing Yoshi’s Woolly World on our Wii U. … More Give Me Some!
I think I always believed in God, but even after my husband and I got married, I thought God was just “up there somewhere.” I figured He was watching what was going on down here on earth, and figured He had some way that I didn’t understand to keep track of everyone and the things they … More My Father Is Always With Me
My husband and I have been so blessed with those of you who have shared how you had been praying for our recent trip to Arizona to visit with our son, Jeffrey. To hear how the family of our great God has been interceding for us means more than we can ever put in words. … More God’s Timing

As I sat drafting this post, I started thinking that I’ve been kind of cranky lately. Why? I actually can’t pinpoint it. I’m at a point in my life where I’m doing so many things that I love, such as writing, helping at church, and getting ready for a couple foster-kid camps that will be … More What Am I Focusing On?
One morning I got up very early to go sit out on our patio. All was quiet except for a few birds chirping. My phone was inside and my husband still sound asleep in bed. I treasured my time that morning as I prayed, read my Bible and wrote in my journal. When I finally … More Walking Forward
When people look at you, what do they see?

A friend recently told me that … More Set Apart For Jesus
“Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4 NIV). That’s one of my favorite verses ever!
