Your Words Speak

This week I received a Facebook message that left me completely speechless. It contained two lines of text from a college professor I had not spoken to since graduation. Yes, posting one picture up on social media prompted him to share a piece of encouragement. The message was simple, yet profound. It was one of […]

My husband and I will be celebrating our 6th Christmas…with kids. As much as we may attempt planning out our month of activities, the unexpected must be expected. Something will go wrong and most definitely right at the moment that mommy desperately needs events go oh just right.  That’s why I’ve embraced the idea of […]

Keep Playing

Have you ever caught yourself comparing your success against those around you? As if we have the golden measuring stick to judge our hard work against the faulty outside appearances of others.

The Song In Your Heart

 Don’t forget about the “Before Amen Prayer Journal” giveaway going on right now! Today is the last day!  A girl like me does not play violin.
