Today I have great news! After what seems like a long, drawn-out homeschool year, which included summer school, my youngest daughter has successfully graduated from high school. She finished all the work on a Friday, and a week ago she received her official diploma! Yay!!! Multiple forms of celebration are, and have already been, taking… Read More Day 253- Thankful my daughter graduated high school
Yesterday evening I was driving my daughter to her youth group meeting, and I opened up to her about how I’ve been feeling a bit down, uninterested, and even sometimes irritable. It’s discouraging for me to be struggling with this after having experienced so many of God’s victories in my life. But I guess if… Read More Day 249- Thankful that God’s not done with me
When I was growing up, I was taught, somehow or other, to root for the underdog. I don’t know who taught it to me. I don’t remember having a lesson on it; I just learned it. Think about it; David was the underdog against Goliath, but with God on His side, he won anyway! And… Read More Day 241- Thankful for underdogs and long shots

“These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings.” Revelation 17:14a There is so much darkness in the world today.

Sometimes, when we sit down and read these, the words fit our situation perfectly, and… Read More Scripture prayers #9
As our family was driving through the beautiful mountains of Tennessee a couple of years ago, we happened upon this sign. It struck me as funny that somebody would embrace their grumpiness so much that they would make a sign introducing themselves as such, so I quickly took a picture of it! In the region… Read More Grumpy or Grace?
I love to read passages of the Bible where God appears to man. If you haven’t read through the Bible, you may be surprised how many times this happened. Joshua 5 and 6 contains one of these passages. In Joshua 5:13-15 we see that a man is standing before Joshua with his sword drawn. At… Read More Appearances of God to Man – Breakthroughs
