Learning to Serve

Last week I did not get the posts written that I wanted to write. I found myself a bit occupied with the craziness of life that comes with being a mother. Our household, along with most of the city I live in, got hit by a nasty stomach bug. It seemed to circulate around our home for about a month.…

The Start of Holy Week

Growing up in church I learned a lot about what the Bible teaches. I learned many different Bible stories about all the different characters that are portrayed in the pages of the scriptures.

Or maybe you would forget your diet and eat and enjoy all the foods you normally restricted from yourself. What about the people around you, would…

Have you ever had a garden? I have attempted to have a small garden several times over the past several years and my harvest is usually pretty pitiful. Last year I managed to grow a few radishes and some okra, but over all the harvest was small. There are many reasons why the harvest has been pitiful. A few of…
