To me, this is one of the best things I can hear from you. If you are a Christian, you understand it. If you’re not, then it doesn’t make sense. This past year I have seen on social media the rudest forms of mockery on thoughts and prayers. Not just one post, but dozens. Cynical…Read more
Healthy, Happy, Optimistic!
Some of you have heard those three words, together just like that, several times, if not a million. It is our family motto! When people ask me how I’m doing, my response almost 90% of the time is, “Happy, Healthy, and Optimistic. Sometimes even a “Opti-freak-‘n-mistic!”. It was years and years and years ago, (2006)…Read more
When Tragedy Strikes
If you know anything about me at all, it is my penchant for forgiveness. I talk about it all the time, and push it all the time. I feel that it is the key to life. So many people are hurting out there, and many are wallowing in self-pity and hurt. If we could only…Read more

Being divorced was definitely a no-no, and obviously if you were, then you must be such a horrible sinner. This is what I learned growing…Read more
I am so HAPPY!!! (even though I’m divorced)
I am so HAPPY! And what do I have to be happy about? First things first – God LOVES ME! Even though I’m imperfect, he loves me for who I am. I have noticed a common thread among Christians – and that is that many of them do not understand God’s forgiveness. And because of…Read more
Ever Say Something You Regret?
Okay, I have to admit – if this was a course in school, I would be getting A’s. Top marks. Full credit. Perhaps I really should be wearing a neon sign that says “insert foot here” with an arrow pointing at my mouth. Sigh. LIFE IS TOO SHORT FOR REGRETS Regrets. Life is too SHORT…Read more
