No Shame

I HAVE SUFFERED DEPRESSION MOST OF MY LIFE! And I am not ashamed to admit it. Some may even say I've been "crazy". Not ashamed of that either. I fully believe that Satan wants us to feel shame. God gives us remorse for things we've done wrong, but shame doesn't come from Him. If Satan… Continue reading No Shame

Motivational Monday: Even though it’s Tuesday

I let yesterday get away from me. And I'll admit, I was being lazy and spent the day reading. 🙂 I do that every so often. I love to read and sometimes get wrapped up and refuse to put my book down. That was yesterday for me. Today, I'll put up yesterday's post and today's.… Continue reading Motivational Monday: Even though it’s Tuesday

Big Changes…Big Blessings

Yesterday, after nearly 19 years of living with my oldest baby, we took her off to college. My baby is smart (graduated Valedictorian, got full-ride scholarships to her college), kind, loving, and beautiful in every way. She's a hard worker and takes her talents and increases them. If she wants to do something she may… Continue reading Big Changes…Big Blessings

While we… Continue reading For the Dogs (and Cats)

While I find the article extremely interesting, I'm not writing about medicine or the importance of good doctors in the world, which, even though I am… Continue reading BECOME WHO YOU MUST BECOME!

Keeping the Commandments of God

  As parents, we have rules and guidelines for our children to follow. We teach them things that will help them live their lives happier and safer. We teach our children how to stay safe with strangers. We (hopefully) pay attention to their online activities and friends. We know who their friends are and try… Continue reading Keeping the Commandments of God

Humility and Pride

Today in church we discussed the difference between a Humble Heart and a Prideful Heart. I think, at different times, we find ourselves in both catagories. Being human, we often find ourselves prideful. Though it's natural, it's not what God asks of us. We must repent and strive daily to be more HUMBLE. To be… Continue reading Humility and Pride
