The Last Great Generation

I’ve had a lot of time to think these last few months.  And I’ve pondered about GGPa.  I was so blessed to have this man be a part of my life for 8 years.  He was in his late 80’s when I became part of his family, but it wasn’t until his last 3 years…

The Least of These

I pray that we would let go of the images we have built up of ourselves. Whether they are good or bad, I can promise they are not how God sees us. I pray that we would set that down and follow where He leads us. And that we would know that wherever He leads us will be so much better than we could ever imagine for ourselves.

Challenges

I am planning to take you through my journey of unpacking the baggage and tossing out the things I carried that weren’t important and true anymore. I’d love for you to come along and hopefully inspire you to unpack your own bags. Let’s lighten the load together.

Broken Pieces

I don’t know how you are feeling with the way things are going in your world, but I know I quite often find myself having to lean more in to God lately. I live in a relatively small town. Our financial climate is driven by logging, ranching, mining, and tourism mostly. All of these industries…
