Book Review: The Proverbs 31 Police Wife

There are a few things that I hold very dear to my world… (other then my Lord and Husband that is…) Police Wives…. AKA LEOW’s and Dispatchers. Mainly because I am a police wife and I was a dispatcher.   Secondly because both are vastly misunderstood and even those that think they understand….. Unless they are……

Book Review: Love Does/Everybody Always

Imagine you are standing in a stadium full of people…. Some you know and many you don’t. And each one… one by one… they come up to you and poke you in the shoulder. After the first few hundred your shoulder starts to hurt, but the poking keeps happening. You’re in pain and you literally shut yourself down, because you see the line of people… and there is no place for you to go.. but to keep getting poked….

2018 – Looking Back

I sit here… Looking out at this beautiful view that God created just for me… And I am overwhelmed at His love for us.  2018 was a year we declared as Growth and Healing.  A year we were spending to recover from the hell of 2016 and 2017. We needed the entire year to recover….

To The Tired Mommy On Christmas Eve

Old Fashioned Is Just Who I Am.

Let’s set the scene…. The music is playing… Easy on the ears with a nice melody to welcome someone in the door after a long day of working. The home is warm.. with the wafting scent of freshly baked cornbread in the air. The sausage and bean soup my man loves is on the stove-top…
