There are days I intend to open my Bible only to find myself reading emails—then POOF, time has vanished and it’s 6:30 a.m. Time to wake the kids up for school. Life gets so busy and sometimes I neglect to separate myself from the distractions that pull me away...read more
ENTER THE GIVEAWAY AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST! Victory! The morning sun was shining brightly. I had my Starbucks nonfat Cinnamon Dolce Latte in the cupholder and my 12-year-old daughter singing a Taylor Swift song, and I was driving her to an out-of-town soccer game....read more
