The Jesus Storybook Bible

Although I’m a former teacher with lots of opinions on when & how the best way to teach certain things to children, I’ve often wondered what was the best way to teach Jonah about the Lord and the Christian faith. I’ve often prayed, long before Ray and I were married, that God would guide me […]

I know it’s time for Fall when…

I can order “liquid pumpkin pie” with a shot of whipped cream on top. Thank you Starbucks for the delicious Pumpkin Spice Latte!

Movin’ on up…

Aaack! I was featured today in the Birthday Party Round-Up at One Pretty Thing!!! I noticed an email telling me I had a comment on the blog and the commenter was congratulating me….I’m so excited!

Super […]
