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 […]

Reclaiming FMF : {Welcome}

I let FMF (five minute friday) go for awhile. When I started the October 31 day challenge it just didn’t fit in with what I was writing at the time and I didn’t want to interupt the flow of the book I was posting (click on the Alphabet Soup tab if you’re wondering what I’m […]

Reclamation Project #1

See that sparkly little bit on my nose? My daughter and I went together to get our noses pierced one crisp Saturday in November. We were a little nervous and kinda excited at the prospect. I’ve always thought they looked so nice on my friends that had them. Unfortunately I encountered some issues with mine. […]
