A Lesson About the Past

When I first started this blog, it took me a while to come up with a fitting name for it.

The Journey

Not Alone

Sitting on a rock over looking a gorgeous lake at a women’s retreat I begrudgingly accepted an invite to, I am recapping this morning’s events thus far.

As I enjoy the holiday off of work with my family, sitting in my cushy recliner, wearing the most comfortable clothing in my closet I am in awe of God and his leading hand in my life. In case you didn’t know already, I recently wrote a book! (That was a little bit of sarcasm […]
