You’re Loved No Matter What {a review plus}

Sometimes you can’t read a book quickly. When I get review copies I try and get through them as soon as possible in order to get the review up in the time frame that the publisher wants it. I couldn’t do that with this book. I needed to absorb it. Slowly. Perfectionism is something that […]

Questions without Answers

I have been wrecked for the last few days. I read this post from Ann Voskamp about the choices that women need to make…choosing between their children. I read about nine year old girls that are sold as wives or whatever… My little girl is nine. I cannot imagine her being used in that way. […]

The Best Medicine

Last night I happened upon a super funny post on Facebook. It hit my funny bone. HARD!!! I have not laughed that hard in YEARS people.

The Drama Queen wishes to abdicate…

Yeah, I do! I love drama, really I do! There’s nothing like a great character to sink your teeth into and have fun with on a stage, however, this is not the kind of drama I am talking about. I am talking about renovations and non-trustworthy plumbers and kids off the rails and decision making […]

Grace, the crazy kind…

Grace. Sometimes I think we push away from grace. Grace shows us just how weak we really are. I am prone to despise what I need most, exercise being a case in point. I need to exercise, I can’t do too much because it whacks out my adrenal glands if I overdo it. I am […]

The Crimson Cord {a review}

Rahab is a woman who captures our imagination. How did she end up as a prostitute with such courage and bravery so as to hide Israelite spies and risk her life for them? Not only that, she forsakes her country, her gods and her entire way of life in order to live with them after […]
