I’ve never been a drama queen. In fact, I’m happy if I’m not anywhere near drama and will do whatever I can to make sure it doesn’t find me. But unfortunately in this day and age, drama isn’t always avoidable. It crops up in our families, at work, and in our surroundings. The point is […]
I’ve been under the weather for the past week and a half. I can’t even remember when I’ve been this sick and for this long. I’m past the achy body and sleeping for hours on end, but there still is something lingering in my head and sinuses. Throughout my time of being sick, I’ve had […]
On this Christmas Eve, may our hearts be turned toward the return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Praying you and your family have a blessed Christmas celebrating our Messiah’s birth. Merry Christmas!
Praying you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, remembering God’s abundant blessings in your life this past year.
How do you respond when your world is shaken? When life throws you a devastating blow, do you stay in the mire of the struggle or do you pick yourself up and keep going? I recently finished reading Tim Tebow’s new book which comes out tomorrow called Shaken, and I’ve been thinking about this topic. […]
My husband and I recently watched the movie, God’s Not Dead 2. It’s one of those movies that makes you think and ponder long after the final credits have rolled. One main thought has been…if I were on trial for my faith, how much evidence could be shown to support it? Would the scale be […]
It’s been a busy week, with not a whole lot of sleep. That’s what happens when a newborn enters the world. On Sunday evening at 11:20 pm, my youngest son and his wife welcomed their first little one into their lives. This little sweetie was 8 lb. 10 oz. and 20″ long. It was a […]
It’s been a busy few weeks as I’ve been sorting through 16+ years of accumulated home school materials. I’m working on getting things together for a ‘retirement yard sale’. 🙂 Now, it actually has been four years since I finished home educating my two sons all the way through high school graduation, but I finally […]
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” Ephesians 6:11 (NIV) “Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, […]
It’s been three weeks since I released a novella. Things have been a little busy as I work on blog interviews, promotions, etc. It’s been a lot of fun but also a bit overwhelming too. The question I’m often asked is what am I working on next, and do I have the next novella written […]
Most of my life I have been a glass is half empty type of gal. I’m not sure exactly why, but I have often struggled with being more negative when it comes to looking at things. This is something that I asked the Lord to change about me several years ago. I found that as […]
On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to prepare the Passover meal for you?” “As you go into the city,” he told them, “you will see a certain man. Tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My time has come, and I […]
And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the […]
I absolutely LOVE snow. In fact my husband and I were praying we’d be hit hard with this current snow storm. As I write, we’ve had snow for 24 hours and it’s still going strong. We have at least two feet, not counting the drifts and could get another foot. Definitely my kind of snow […]
By the time you read this you’ll likely have finished all your Christmas shopping. You might still be wrapping gifts, baking cookies or preparing food for family. I know I’ll be in the midst of preparations and festivities since both of my sons and their families will be with us this year. My husband and […]
I’ve been thinking a lot about what to post for my first time as a contributor for Putting on the New. I kept coming back to the idea of a ‘getting to know me’ post. What may you find interesting about me? Hmm. I’m the youngest of three, with two older brothers three and four […]
