Don't give up! Keep trying. Said Charlie. It started out as a normal day on the boat. We were on the island and trying to catch some fish. We actually caught a lot of fish. And big ones too for so early in the season. Charlie was really excited, however, one of us wasn't catching [...]
Have you ever been lost? Or felt like you were lost? We were at the playground today and as Olivia was playing I moved from where I was to another spot in the play area to sit. I thought Olivia had seen, but she went to where I had been sitting to ask me a [...]
She is usually the go-with-the-flow child. The comfortable in most situations child. But when Olivia gets uncomfortable she comes and sits next to me. She will then tell anyone who tries to play with her that she just wants to sit by her mom. This year we put her in camp, and usually, she likes [...]

If you could name the season in life, in regards to your faith, that you are in, what would you name it? Think about that for a second, before reading on. Would you name it faith? Fear? Disbelief? Disobedience? Surrender? Name it...

So this morning after church, we went to pick up my husbands car at his parent's house. Apparently over night, a few cars in the neighborhood got things stolen from them. And our car got our check book stolen from it. Not really a huge deal, but really annoying because it is my birthday, and [...]
What is the one thing that you wouldn't want to sacrifice if God asked you? You family? Your house? Your job? What is your most love thing? Name it. I could name a few, and one of them I had to lay down this week.
