Have you ever bought a new car, and then all of a sudden you see the same make and model of your new car everywhere? I never knew there were so many white mid-size SUVs on the road. I never noticed the cars before because, well, I wasn’t looking for them. But now that I […]

Even though I don’t have school-aged kids, as an adult I still have always looked at the end of summer and start of fall as an opportunity to reset, course correct on my goals, and finish the year strong. This year, however, everything just feels weird. We are supposed to be buying notebooks and backpacks […]

Who THE SON sets free is free indeed. -John 8:36 Freedom. It’s something that we, as citizens of the United States of America, enjoy to an extent that no other people in the world get to enjoy. By virtue of where we are born, we have rights and privileges afforded to us that others around […]

Happy New Year! Happy New DECADE! I love any excuse to set new goals, fill out blank planners, and start life with a fresh, clean slate. New Year’s is a pretty wonderful holiday for a Type A planner like me. So when the new year doesn’t just mark a new year, but a new decade? […]

Long lay the world in sin and error pining, ‘Til He appeared, and the soul felt its worth. One of my favorite lines in any Christmas song, ever. Did your parents ever promise you something big? Maybe a special toy for your birthday, or a promise to take a trip somewhere? Do you remember the […]

I never knew how much WORK went into Thanksgiving Day until I got married. On both my mom and my dad’s sides of the family, you aren’t asked to bring any food to family Thanksgiving until you’re married. And even then, you aren’t trusted to bring an actual cooked dish for the first few years. […]
