Do you invite people over to spend time at your house without hesitation? Do you hold BBQs, parties and holidays in your home? I do!! I love having people over to pr house. Our house […]
Comparison is the thief of joy! Shine like the beautiful, individual soul that you are. There is more than enough room for the moon, sun, planets and stars. Don’t let anyone put that light inside of you out. Happy Friday
A gentle reminder to be gracious in your speech. To think about what you are saying and how, especially around young ears. Teaching them about how what you say and to whom matters.

I have felt like this for a very long time. My husband and I have conversations about this regularly.

Yesterday I went to the funeral of my husband’s aunt. I’m pretty fortunate that at 38 I haven’t been to what I would say is a lot of funerals. The “closest” relatives I’ve had pass are great grandparents. I’ve never been involved in funeral arrangements, decisions about the body/burial, etc. Most of the funerals I’ve […]
For those of you who don’t know I am a member of the United Methodist Church. For the most part, I have been a very proud member for 38 years. This includes years where I attended other types of congregations, took religion classes and did my part to learn more about other religions. I found […]
