Pinterest can be overwhelming.   But I have found a couple of ideas that have suited me.  One of my favorite ideas was assisting Kati Ann in learning to tie her shoe.  I won’t lie and tell you that I didn’t consider letting her wear velcro shoes for the rest of her life.  Unfortunately Kati Ann more »

Some months ago, I stumbled upon a random blog because the blogger had a post go viral and I happened to read it.   The blogger’s name is Addie Zierman and I first clicked on her blog around the time I was feeling the stir to start a new blog of my own.  When I got there, more »

I Have Nothing To Wear

Do you ever stand in your closet disgusted thinking, “I have nothing to wear”, “I don’t like any of these clothes.”? I certainly do. It’s one of many 1st World problems we as rich Americans suffer with. But what about we as wealthy believers? I don’t mean “wealthy” in terms of monetary wealth, I mean more »

What I Learned from Diego about Letting Go of Control

I’ve been praying for a while about really specific things that God wants from my life.  #2 on my list is Letting Go of Control.  That sounds fun, huh?  I don’t want that to be on the list.  But I felt like God put it on my list!  Ouch! So, just when I think I’ve more »
