Mama to a future NBA star…

in his dreams! But Jared did make it through an entire week of tryouts for the 7th grade basketball team and made the first cut from 24 kids to 18 and the LAST cut from 18 to 12. The boy made the team! He is officially a Spring Mills Patriot and nearly bursting with prideContinue Reading

New Look, Same Blog

Let this be a lesson to all of you non-HTML gifted, CSS ignorant, technologically challenged bloggers out there (unless I am the only one) DO NOT attempt to change hosts, blog design, etc without professional assistance!!!

Courtesy of MckMama and her fun meme I am now participating in Not me, Monday’s. This is where we get to be brutally honest at our own expense about the prior week. I have been lurking on her blog anyway because she has a beautiful story to tell of faith and the power of prayer.Continue Reading

Holy Rest

Rest is holy. That is a difficult concept at times for this multi-tasking mama! Most of my life I thought that my worth and value was directly related to my contribution to the world- be it through my performance as a mom, a wife, a friend, an employee, a volunteer, a daughter, granddaughter, sister, andContinue Reading
