The Power of Words – The Power in a Name

July 29, 2019

When I was a little girl playing in the neighborhood we had a silly little song we would sing when a neighborhood child spoke something hurtful to us.  We would chant, “Stick and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me.”  I am not sure where that nursery rhyme came from because…

Dads and Daughters, Vol. IV

June 11, 2019

Your daughter is of age where she is now interested in boys (where has the time gone?); and you want to make sure she survives this period of her life so you can walk her down the aisle unscathed, maybe a few cuts and bruises, but physically and mentally intact. As always you have a…

Despair & Hope

April 17, 2019

“Utter loss of hope.”  “…A cause of hopelessness.”  That’s what Webster says.  Sound familiar?  Have you ever been there?  I don’t think any human being on the planet escapes the feeling of despair at some point in their life.  It comes in many forms:  despair, desperation, despondency, discouragement and hopelessness, all refer to a state…

Dads and Daughters – Vol III

April 11, 2019

Well dads, let’s tackle an extremely difficult subject to discuss with your daughter, yep you guessed it, the subject of sex. Ironically, the best time to discuss this topic is when she is not necessarily interested in the subject or the object of the subject, boys. It is important that you have this discussion with…

“Unplanned”

April 4, 2019

Life is so unpredictable.  There are mountains and valleys all along the way.  We want to control it, but we can’t.  We want to know what is going to happen tomorrow, but do we?  We would worry today about what was to come if we knew that.  God clearly tells us that He made us…

40 Days for Life and Hope

March 28, 2019

We are in the middle of this year’s 40 Days for Life Campaign that runs March 6th to April 14th.  Life is a wonderful thing to celebrate, isn’t it?  Think about the things you would celebrate about life.  The smell after a rain?  Would it be a pink and blue sunset?  The smell of grass…

Dads and Daughters – Vol II

March 21, 2019

Dads, when was the last time you looked into your daughter’s eyes and said, “I love you?”  Equally important, when was the last time your daughter saw you look into her mom’s eyes and say, “When is dinner ready?”  Kidding aside, does your daughter ever see you hold her mom’s hand, hug her, or even…

New Birth

March 12, 2019

Here we are in the middle of a March following a snow storm just days ago, but spring is coming!  I know because I saw evidence.  Driving home from work one day last week I saw some yellow flowers popping through in someone’s yard.  My husband also brought in an old, discarded flower pot from…

Saved from Choices by Grace

February 22, 2019

In my early twenties, I choose to terminate two pregnancies.  At the time, the reasons I thought were good, but later I discovered that for me they were kind of selfish.  To know the Lord today, to know a life lived for Him, to know a saved life, to know I’ll have eternal life, makes…

Tips for Caring for a Newborn

February 13, 2019

I have been a mom for all of eight months.  My baby girl just turned eight months today so I am in no way an expert in all things momma.  However, having just recently come out of the newborn stage and feeling as though it is still fresh in my brain, I wanted to share…
