No Weapon Formed Against You

Tonight was an amazing night spent with thousands of women in the DFW area at Awaken.  It was at a beautiful and gracious church in Dallas.  And the atmosphere was completely different than any "event" I had been to.  I went hoping for a night filled with worship and a Word from God.  I truly felt the presence of Jesus all around.

Interrupted & We are Moving

Sometime close to this time last year, we set out to move.  Moving for our sweet Mia.  Looking for a smaller school district to better serve her.  I did lots of research and calling lots of principals directly.  I found a couple of districts that were just so excited to welcome us in.  I concentrated my efforts on those two areas.

Blessings Through the Storms

This post is a wee bit more sharing than I typically do.  But I am trying to find and share the blessings that come from storms in our lives.  Trying to find our new normal over the last few months has been anything but fun or pretty.  And you come here to find beautiful finishes on beautiful or not so beautiful furniture... but it's not always … [Read more...]
