Spiritual Reset

Can we go back to reading the bible and turn off the media? We weren’t getting the answers from them anyways.

Make the Memories

So today, I ask you to make the memories. Do the mundane things that seem pointless and unrewarding. Keep the traditions. Take the pictures.

Jesus Knew

I’ve taken a bit of time away from all of my media accounts again. I really felt like I needed to process and regroup before I could start writing again. I’ve been spending time in my yard, cleaning and redoing my gardens. Playing with my kids. Getting our chickens more used to us. And today,…

The Power of Your Testimony

A God that gave us a spirit of power, love and self control. And what is more powerful than love? God given love.
