God Cares About Who You Vote For

These words have been rolling around in my head, my gut, and my heart for weeks. I have been listening to people, all kinds of people and I have been pondering the reasons people give to what they do and who they are voting for - but I can get away from this one issue… Continue reading God Cares About Who You Vote For

What To Look At In Galveston

I have the pleasure of living in the East End Historical District in Galveston. This is the original spot where the city grew up first. We even have ruins that a pirate called home. With such an old place comes beautiful and diverse architecture. I walk about 20 miles a week with my husband and… Continue reading What To Look At In Galveston

Best Advice I Ever Got

https://videopress.com/v/Y7MsioB4?preloadContent=metadata When I was all of 19 years old, I was getting married. Lots of people weighed in on my decision- some welcome, some not.

The Best Belongs At Home

So often, we give our best to our boss or our coworkers or our church family and we are so spent when we get home that our family gets the leftovers. Leftovers are, 9 times out of 10, gross. Nobody wants leftovers, certainly not on a regular basis. If we want a thriving marriage, then… Continue reading The Best Belongs At Home

Island Life & Ice Cream

One of the BEST things about living on the island is that we can pick up the grandkids and head to the water. We don't have to stay long, but it always refreshes my soul.

Living Bravely in a Dangerous World

When you live with a first responder, you think about the "what if". Not all the time, but frequently. At least I did. All in a vain attempt to make myself feel like I had a plan. There were times you had no choice, like when your husband needs to know how you want to… Continue reading Living Bravely in a Dangerous World

The Handwritten Word

I love writing. Not jus the act of stringing words together to tell a story, but the actual, physical act of writing. I like watching the ink leave the pen, the ink flowing from one letter to the next, one word added to another until a page is filled. So beautiful! I learned by accident… Continue reading The Handwritten Word
