I'm in the middle of one of the most hectic stretches that I can remember. It's a season of a lot of change and transition....3 teens starting a new school, 1 son heading to another state for college, my husband adjusting to a new job, my family attempting to find a church, and etc. Read More

January 5, 2016 started like any other day. I woke up, checked my email and Instagram, brushed my teeth, ate breakfast while scrolling through Facebook, had my quiet time, showered and got ready to go to BSF (Bible Study Fellowship).
