Christmas Update – Coupon Style

I’ve been busy in my sewing room.  I will be sharing soon {Read More}

Precious Moments Christmas Storybook ~ Tommy Mommy Review & Giveaway

  Rambunctious, Energetic, Full of Joy…. These are words to describe my daughter.  Moving constantly she listens to books as she sways back and forth, or taps her feet.  With the My Christmas Storybook Bible it was different.  This book geared for 2-6 year olds brought a sweet change. She sat still. Enthralled. Taking in every word. Each page brings a short story, poem, song, prayer or verse.  The endearing pictures are attractive to my 4 year old daughter and {Read More}

Just Plain Ugly

I wake up this beautiful morning in a strange bed.  Crawling out of bed, I head to the living room to write.  My mind is swirling with ideas and I cannot get past the fact that this long awaited vacation is half-over. The sheet covered couch greets me as I attempt to connect to the internet.  The kids had beat me to it and messed up the connection to the wall playing with the “old-school” phone days prior.  Now I {Read More}

Dear November,

My Story ~ The Saga of the Brain Tumor

My friends joke that I have helped the local hospitals earn more money because of MRIs of 30 year old women thinking they may have a brain tumor.  I feel like I’ve been writing long enough that you’d hopefully know my heart when I share this.  I do not want you to be anxious, but I want to share what God has done in my life and how he showed me symptoms so I could be healed. Here’s a part {Read More}
