Healed By Grace 2

I love a good story. Whether it is a made-up story from a book or a story my grandmother told me about her childhood, I think stories have a way of connecting people. Our church has been celebrating different "heritage months" through the year, and it has brought about many stories. There have been stories... Continue Reading →

Like Arrows

"I can't do this alone." This is probably something all parents have thought or said at one or multiple times in the parenting journey. There are no handbooks, and even if there are, every single kiddo is different and what worked for one doesn't always work for another. I love that this new movie coming... Continue Reading →
