This past weekend, as we are in our Toxic series, my husband talked about "Toxic Influences".  I thought it was a wonderful, timely message (yes, I am totally partial... I think that man is amazing).  I myself was really convicted about some little things that I have allowed to seep into our home.  I certainly... Continue Reading →


I love this picture!! I took it yesterday in between our two AM services.  My son, Ethan and I meet my husband, Eric in his office after the 9:00 am service to just have a few moments together before the next service.  Eric and I were talking about the service and I happened to notice...

That is my little man, Ethan, right there in the green shirt. This was at the "See You At the Pole" this morning at his school.  He is in the 2nd grade! I, of course was going to go. Our church is hosting a big rally tonight and lots of people from our church were... Continue Reading →

Greener Pastures

This picture is from my window at work. I love having a window right next to my computer.  It got me to thinking this morning... we take really good care of the grass on our side of the fence. So... it looks a lot prettier than other people's grass around us.  You know the old... Continue Reading →

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. We just all got a long weekend because of Labor Day. Oh, how I enjoyed that precious time with... Continue Reading →

New Territory

Last week was crazy! Crazy like a roller coaster! We had some awful trials and some wonderful things happen all in the same week. It was up and down minute to minute. It was to the point where we were just laughing about it, (maybe out of temporary insanity)but still laughing. It started really a... Continue Reading →

Kick it Up a Notch

I was watching Emeril the other day and he used the phrase "Kick it up a Notch".  It has been in my head for a while now.  Almost everyone I have talked to this week has mentioned something about how rough their week has been.  Vehicle trouble, marriage trouble, money trouble, attitude trouble... it goes...

Don’t Dwell on the Past

Yesterday's "At the Movies" series at Oasis was awesome.  The message that was brought out through the life of Johnny Cash really makes you think.  Especially about dwelling on the past.  A lot of us do that. We let the mistakes of our own and others dictate our future. We let it determine who we... Continue Reading →
