Book Review - " Before Love Dies"
Wednesday, June 01, 2016      2 comments

"Before Love Dies " - Larry J Russell 3/5 stars I'd call this a "basic guidebook to Christian relationships." It has some great info, but it also has a lot of common sense and fluff thrown in there. (Although, perhaps common sense to m... Read more

Mother's Day
Saturday, May 07, 2016      6 comments

Mother's Day has been rough for me for my whole adult life. Originally, I had been told I wouldn't ever naturally conceive. (Ha! guess God showed them!) So Mother's Day was always a painful reminder that I would never be a "mother." (Granted,... Read more
