I just wanted to break into tears, watching as our governor gave an update on the state of how schools will be opening in the Fall. I want my children to go back to school, it has been hard for them to be away from their structure, and friends. But I have a really hard … Continue reading How To Wear A Mask
This is a letter I wrote to an older "Olivia" but it was inspired by someone who struggles with fearing she won't go to heaven out of the worry she will make the wrong decisions. This letter is for her... and for others who may feel like her.
Today I am sharing about the second time that the disciples get stuck in a storm while they are on a boat... but this time, Jesus isn't in the boat with them...
The other day I was texting a friend of mine, and I asked her what she was struggling with in the faith department. I knew that she would be honest, and she was.
