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

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

My Favorite Love Story- Part One

As you know, I love a love story. I believe that every person does, too. I am often asked what is my favorite book or love story. The answer is easy- our love story. Tony and I met in college.

Which One Will You Be?

Proverbs 14:1 The wise woman builds her house,     but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.   This has been a scripture that has been woven into my mind for many years.  I'll admit that in the beginning of my marriage I was very foolish.  I talked before I thought, I got… Continue reading Which One Will You Be?

Together Is The Best Place To Be…

Working together, as in owning a business together, is not for everyone.  I wish that every married couple wanted to spend every minute possible together, but they don't.  I, however, look forward to every minute I get to spend with Tony.  We love owning our herb farm and working towards a common goal.  Today was… Continue reading Together Is The Best Place To Be…

My Honey Isn’t Feeling Too Good…

Tony has been sick, to be honest sometimes it is hard for me to be compassionate when he is sick.  The trouble arises from the fact that when I am sick, Tony totally deviates from his usual way.  Normally, Tony would go to the moon and back if I wanted something.  I am spoiled and… Continue reading My Honey Isn’t Feeling Too Good…
