Let’s talk … Right now, Joey and I are in between churches. We feel led to join a church that we’ve been visiting but we haven’t been able to get to the required class for membership yet because of illness and Joey’s surgery in August. Once we can get there and join, I plan to… Continue reading Let’s Talk … Thoughts on Singing in Church

“Holy Spirit, Activate”
If ever there was a quote for this picture it would be that. For the last week and a half, I have been unwell. On top of daily headaches, several of which have turned into migraines, I had a chronic fatigue syndrome flare-up which triggered a spiral into depression and left me battling some major… Continue reading “Holy Spirit, Activate”
Do you ever find yourself wondering how do we live at peace with others in a world that is so hell-bent on destroying peace in the name of fighting for peace? I think I may have found the answer in Proverbs 16:7. This verse is referring back to King Jehoshaphat. Read 2 Chronicles 17-20… Continue reading Peace 101

That Other Story for Another Day …
"Comparison is the thief of joy." - Jennifer Harvey Yesterday marked 11 weeks that I have been completely off my anti-anxiety/depression medication after 7 years of being on it. I'll be honest with you ... I should have never been on it this long if I should have ever been on it in the first… Continue reading That Other Story for Another Day …
A funny thing happens every May, I find myself feeling a bit nostalgic and remembering my senior year of High School.
