Can be called an accident, happenstance, fate, or a fluke.” I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe in a mighty God who can plan out the tiniest details in a way our minds cannot comprehend. Therefore, […]

I Need Some Salt

           “But, Mom. You don’t understand. She asked for my opinion, so I gave it to her.”      “Jill, she is your teacher and your coach. You have to be respectful. You can’t just tell her whatever is on your mind.” My Mom was serious. […]

I Hate when I’m Being a Hypocrite

We all know how important it is to make sure our children take time away from their electronics: time to read, time to be with God, and time to play. Last week, I shared with you about our “Summer Rules,” which give some structure to the days of summer, and […]
