I am a follower of Christ, Wife, Mom, Teacher, Musician and Artist. I am an observer of people and nature and am working on learning how to truly “live love”. I talk to birds and butterflies, have been known to rescue baby snakes, love to get my hands dirty in the flower garden, and can lay on the sidewalk at night and watch the moon and stars for hours. I just love living!

The Desert Experience

The desert is not a comfortable place physically, neither is it a pleasant place spiritually or creatively. I have been in all three and more than likely you have too. At this very moment I am experiencing one of the driest, hottest, most uncomfortable desert...

Willing to Give it All

The impact of this Sunday School lesson I prepared for last week continues to resonate in my soul for my own life. I decided I needed to share it here because God has just not allowed me to let it go. Sometimes we all need a reminder of the importance, value, and...

Lessons from the Holy Land – Lesson 20 – The Crucifixion

Golgotha Jesus went to the cross for you and for me.  The culmination of every moment in the past, present, and future comes to completion in three days.  Regardless of all the arguments, one fact remains.  The man called Jesus laid down His life for all of humanity....
