Face of the Father

Over the long weekend my family decided to drive up and see other family in a nearby town. While there we grilled out, walked the shore of the lake and decided to drive a little further out and hike the gloss mountains. My husband and I grew up in the small town and surrounding countryside.… Continue reading Face of the Father

A fresh wind

FRESH. Fresh is a word associated with many good things. Fresh fallen snow. The smell of fresh rain. Fresh baked bread. Fresh coffee. Clothes fresh from the dryer just to name a few.

Radical Love

My husband and I began another small group class on marriage.  This is one of many classes, seminars and breakaways we have done since 2012 when we began our ministry to couples and families.  Our hope in doing this is to give them tools we did not have in order to have a Christ centered… Continue reading Radical Love

I will fight for my family, for… Continue reading I will fight

Can one person make a difference?  Cause a revival of unity? and on and on the questions go; till I felt overwhelmed with the task.  Thankfully God made me a big picture person.  He… Continue reading Seeing the bigger picture

As light pushes back the dark

I usually woke early way before the others who would serve that day.  My essentials gathered : coffee, devotional and bible.  I sat between the rising sun and the setting moon.  I needed to meet with God to try to make sense of what I was feeling and seeing.  Try reconcile old with new and allow God’s presence… Continue reading As light pushes back the dark
