These are the Best Days of My Life

posted in: #LinkUp, Favorites | 2

  When I first read the topic for this week’s #FridayFive,  “Days I would live again” the first thing that came to my mind was the song, “Best Day of My Life” by American Authors. I started thinking about days I would want to live over again. For one reason or another, this was hard. There are some days, you think you should want to live over – and don’t. Like for instance, I have four beautiful babies, and I … Read More

Sweet Sounds in a Noisy World

posted in: #LinkUp | 12

Today is #LinkUp Day for #FridayFive at my friend Kelly’s blog Mrs. Disciple. Today’s prompt was audibles. I had some difficulty at first thinking of these as the last time Kelly did an ‘audible’ prompt she talked all about Podcasts. If you are interested in checking out some new podcasts, head over there to see what she recommends. I, however, have not ventured into the realm of podcasts, so I felt I was at a loss.   I started just … Read More

Down.   The book is Love Does by Bob Goff.   Let me share with you first, how I heard about it…   A FTL (For The Love… do I need to keep spelling this out?)

When Your No Is A Blessings Thief

posted in: #LinkUp | 0

Do you need anything? NO.   Can I make you a meal? NO.   Is there something I could help you with? NO.   I think we are saying “No” too often to the things we need to be saying, “Yes, Please.”   Now, let me start off by saying, that I am all for saying “No” to things that are not #onmybeam.   Last year I read Lysa Terkeurst’s book, The Best Yes, and it was excellent. It didn’t … Read More

Fascinating Bible Stories that Guide the Way I Live

posted in: Favorites | 9

When I was little, my parents would take me to Sunday School every week. I learned about several Bible stories that I am sure most little kids learn. I learned all about Noah and how he took 2 of each animal on the ark. (Side note – did you know he actually took more than two of some animals so he could sacrifice them? Yes! I was amazed when I read this fact – in the Bible!!) Another favorite when … Read More

Hope… My One Word for 2016

posted in: One Word | 0

There is so much talk all over the internet about picking ‘one word’ for a year to be your main focus. I have done this on and off for a couple of years. Previous words of mine have been, “Presence” where I focused on God’s Presence and also being aware of my presence with my family. Another one was “Intentional” and that year I really strived to be intentional in all that I said and all that I did.   … Read More

For the Love – Anniversary

posted in: Favorites | 0

  One year ago today on March 10th, 2015 I received this email… what was to come of that, no one ever could have imagined.    This was the beginning of an amazing journey that has been a blessing to my life more than I can adequately put into words. What has formed from a group of 500 women from all over the world via a Facebook group – is priceless. I have grown and learned so much through these … Read More

Five Obstacles of Launching a Blog

posted in: Uncategorized | 8

  At the beginning of the year when I “had a feeling” that I wanted to launch a blog, I really did not know all that went into it, and all the “behind the scenes” work that it takes to launch a blog. I thought I would write a few words and put them online. What began as a feeling in January grew to – OK, I am going to do this. I planned to launch at the beginning of … Read More

So, Why a Blog?

posted in: Uncategorized | 4

I have started a blog.   This has been months in the making and I am excited that I am finally able to launch this thing and hit “Publish.”   Months ago, I started getting a little nudge that I needed to write. I felt and still feel that God is asking me to write… a book. That seems like such a huge leap. When the time is right I will share more about the book, but for now – … Read More
