Who is Essential?

Remember how before this pandemic began that people looked down upon others in certain jobs or positions (and especially upon those without jobs)? If you didn’t have a degree you were considered worthless. I mean, really, who wants to be a cashier at a grocery store? Who wants to be the person who picks up trash? What wants to be the person who cleans the … Continue reading Who is Essential?

Better Late than Never: My New Year’s Resolutions

It’s crazy that January 2020 is almost over and that we are soon to enter into the second month of the year. I find that as I get older, the years simply go faster too. My kids often say this as well, so maybe it’s not just me getting older but also the fact that all our lives are jammed pack with things that make … Continue reading Better Late than Never: My New Year’s Resolutions

The Alibi Prank Part 2: The Lesson Learned

Yesterday I pulled an epic prank on my kids. I told them that if a police officer came to the house or contacted them to tell him I was with them all day. I’m not good at pranks or lying and so for me to pull one over on them is pretty awesome. The sheer thought of me doing something so terrible that a police … Continue reading The Alibi Prank Part 2: The Lesson Learned

Taking Advantage of the Little Moments: Finding Time to Pray

If you have ever tried to create a prayer life when you have little ones underfoot you know that it can be nearly impossible on some days. St. Teresa of Avila once said that God moves among the pots and pans… and many years ago I adopted the idea of offering the things I do through the day as a prayer to God. While I … Continue reading Taking Advantage of the Little Moments: Finding Time to Pray

Journey to Rediscover Jesus Day 39: People of Possibility

Philippians 4:13 reads, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” I have had to rely upon this bible verse throughout Lent as I have faced challenges and worries. I have often said to others that I don’t know how people without faith get through the difficult times. It has only been with Christ’s help that I have been able to keep going. … Continue reading Journey to Rediscover Jesus Day 39: People of Possibility

Journey to Rediscover Jesus Day 38

Yesterday I stood in a courtroom ready to defend my worthiness to be in the life of my granddaughter. It’s an odd thing having to think about why you should be allowed in someone’s life and how their well-being is at risk because you aren’t there. I certainly didn’t wish to toot my own horn, but I also didn’t want to leave anything out that … Continue reading Journey to Rediscover Jesus Day 38

If you are like me, most mornings when you wake up you have high hopes for the day. It’s a fresh start and you haven’t messed anything up yet.
