Hey, everyone! 😀 We have had some super hot days lately. Just the other night my family and I had a fire and ate dinner (and smores!) outside. Guess who joined us. Mosquitos! (Ahh... those little guys just keep comin' back, don't they?) Mosquitos have a tendency to invite themselves to outside gatherings and over-stay their nonwelcome. We must … Continue reading Homemade Bugspray- Wellness Mama

I still remember vividly the first time (but not the only time) that someone told me that I need to "be comfortable in my own skin".

A lot of you had questions asking me to … Continue reading 4 Differences Between Courtship and Dating

This is how I see courtship (though this isn't a full explanation of how I see … Continue reading Is Courtship a Fail Without a Proposal?

I've mentioned Terra when I posted about her 16th birthday (that post was deleted due to my blog mistake 😦 ), but you can find a bit more about her here, I've mentioned Sandy (click here to get to her blog), and … Continue reading La Belles on Wheels- Blog Announcement
Death, to many people, is like an empty pit that everyone will inevitably fall into. It's a hopeless word that effects everyone. We all go through a time when we lose someone close to us... but what is death to the believer? Today, May 5, is the one-year anniversary of losing a very dear woman … Continue reading Death is a Door
Isn't it awesome to see how the seasons change? God is such an amazing artist. 😉 Here are some pictures from around my yard that show some Spring-y-ness! So, Spring has officially sprung, I suppose. The weather has been warmer, but we still get a cold day here and there. What's the weather … Continue reading Spring!
Hello, everyone!! Yesterday (Friday, the 28th), I went up to New Hampshire for a meeting about the Quebec trip I told you about. I stayed overnight at a dear friend's house and the meeting continued into today. I'm finally home now! 😉 The meeting was a blast. This was the first year we had an overnighter … Continue reading Merrimack, NH- Meeting For Quebec Trip
Hello, everyone! A lot has been going on lately, but I felt like I needed to post something. On the 21st through the 22nd a group of women from my church attended a wonderful woman's retreat. Ellen Dykas, from Harvest USA, taught us this year. Her ministry is focused on discipleship with women who are … Continue reading An Inspiring Quote/Where Have I Been?
