The Precious Things They Say (Plus A Recipe)

The beginning of this post is to share of utter doom and failure. Okay, it isn’t the end of the world but I have a confession: I lied and broke trust with my kids. No, it’s not about the tooth fairy or Santa (although, the 7 year old is still a believer). However, it is…… Continue reading The Precious Things They Say (Plus A Recipe)

This Mother’s Prayer

I read somewhere on social media saying that mothers who are young write about parenting techniques and mothers who have grown children write books on prayer.

Operate Out of His Goodness

Lamentations 3:22-24 NKJV Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.
