I feel like I need to grab my broom to dust the cobwebs off over here. It's been far, far too long. My last post was published on May 24...the day that my grandmother passed away 12 years ago. I don't find it ironic that that was the last day that I published here. And now, here I am, back to introduce you guys to something else. I have written so much here over the last eight plus years. I … [Read more...] about Are you Anchored?

I'm going to be really honest...up until I met my husband's late grandmother, I didn't think that much about prayer. I said the blessing. I half-heartedly asked God for protection and safety when I began to drift off to sleep at night. If I was traveling somewhere or my family was traveling, I would pray hard for safety; and when things in my life were bad...like really bad, I would pray a whole … [Read more...] about Humble Expectancy // Fervent Conclusion
