I published this post a year ago! I was scanning through some of my older posts, and decided to post this again. Because last week I had the most awful case of loneliness I've had in a long time. It was good to reread this as a reminder. Maybe some of you are experiencing loneliness… Continue reading Lean On Me Cuz It’s Lonely Up In Here
Tell your story! Seriously, once you share the hard stuff, several things happen:* it's not as devastating because it's no longer hidden* you actually "hear" it as told to someone else and often make more sense of it* your story helps someone* you take away the paralyzing power of what happened to you,… Continue reading Tell Your Story!
From the book Indestructible by Blake Healy, these sentences really grabbed my attention: "The enemy is fighting to get you to see things his way because a simple act can release a massive amount of God's goodness, leaving a mark that can last for generations." Satan does not want us to realize the… Continue reading Focus On The Light

I wanted to tell you that I appreciate you. Is it weird that I think about my readers during the day? Perhaps that's what bloggers do. I wouldn't know, I'm still relatively new at this and haven't talked to other bloggers. I have been wondering....how are you? No, I mean really. Not what you think… Continue reading Grandmama’s Quilt

But here's the deal, once we admit that we… Continue reading Lean On Me Cuz It’s Lonely Up In Here
Fear divides us. And I know that there are so many things that cause fear right now. I’m not down-playing the dire situation our world is in. But honestly, how does it help us to bash people, to write ugly comments about our leaders, to become hateful about certain people? Y’all, our strongest weapon is… Continue reading Quit Yer Yappin’ And Pray!
On March 20, 2020, as I was spending time with God, praying against the COVID-19 virus that was overtaking the world and now our country, I felt led to start praying for the unborn babies and the mamas who carried them.
