The day I realized Jesus was enough.

Roller coasters can be great thrills, can’t they? The clinking of the chains as it slowly gains track up that first hill is too much anticipation to stand. Once the cart makes it over that first peak, hearts will drop and eyes will get wide as the ride rockets into twists and turns. The highs […]

The call to write.

  This blog post may be the scariest yet. When I created this blog, one piece of advice I read was to admit to your readers how you are feeling. So, I am confessing to you this writing venture is hard for me. The writing part is fun and admittedly, I have a ton of […]
