Our home is still under construction, finalizing g all the details for our final inspection. One of the people helping us finish the detai...

So, we are currently in London, UK. It is a very interesting place. Taking the Underground, also known as The Tube, is considered active transportation. This means that you have to walk or ride your bike to take the subway, train, or bus to a location that is too far to walk or ride your bike. By taking the Tube, I rack...

I never really felt beautiful. I’m not to the majority of the world, to be honest. Both of my husbands believed otherwise. Each one felt that ...

In my last blog post, I talked about the obvious dwindling number of nativities over the last few years. Whether you try to buy one or find one in someone’s yard, there aren’t as many around nowadays. Secularization has taken over in so many ways.

My Boaz and I love our pilgrimage to Frankenmuth every Christmas season. We love to go into Bronners, an amazing Christmas-everything store! It is major Christmas overload in that place. While we've been building our house, we scoped out a particular nativity set for our large front yard. Each piece is life-sized plastic that can be lit at night....

While my father was still alive, we used to take our children to visit him either just before or just after Thanksgiving. Dad was agnostic, in other words, he believed there was a Higher Power out there somewhere just not necessarily the God of the Bible. As a Christian family it was important to us to say grace because we believed God...

When my first husband was in his last couple of weeks before passing on to eternity with God, we needed our sofa moved so he could finally have a hospital bed to sleep on. He had been sleeping on our sofa because he was unable to take the stairs. I asked around at the gym, where I worked as a personal trainer, for help to get the sofa moved to upstairs. Two co-wor...
