An Update & Why I Won’t Be a Blogger Anymore

So, it’s been quiet around here. If this were a house, I would be in deep-dusting mode. In mid-January we finally got to move out of our house so it could be fixed for the second time. {Our city went through a gazillion earthquakes about five years ago.} It was repaired just before our son…

One Blessing From Suffering.

I remember when I first became a Christian and learned in the Bible┬áthat I was going to suffer in this life. I wasn’t a stranger to suffering. In fact, I was still in deep pain when I came to the Lord. But for some reason, I thought that when I became a Christian, everything would…

This Is Me: Accepting How God Made Me

Never has it been harder to accept who we are than the age we are in right now. Though our western society has hashtags galore to promote beauty standards and “accept yourself” movements, people are more insecure, lost, and self-haters than ever before.
