Back to School: Wellbeing

Returning to the classroom after more than a year of virtual or hybrid schooling may be both exciting and stressful for everyone in the household. And for those still not able to attend school in person, the start of the school year may be filled with mixed emotions. Change is challenging for everyone, and it is essential to remember that not every person reacts to change in the same way. Children recognize that this coming school year will look different than past years, whether they...

The Good Fruit of Adversity

In seasons of adversity, the pain and indignities suffered can sometimes feel overwhelming and pointless. In the last four years I have faced several hardships that I wasn’t sure I would survive, including the loss of a marriage and the death of a child. But even in these hard trials where nothing makes sense, I have found that God is faithful to use every single one to produce something deeper and sweeter in my life. God often uses the natural aspects of my three-acre property to speak to...

THERE’S SO MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT JUNETEENTH……

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. On June 19, 1865, a Union General rode into Galveston, Texas to announce that the Civil War had ended, and slaves had been freed. I have never written a blog before and had to do a lot of research on Juneteenth to make sure the facts are correct and to find out exactly what Juneteenth meant.  In the process, my heart ached at what I was reading.  The inhumanity of man never...

Hit by the Hot New Crime: Catalytic Converter Theft

Two weeks ago if I had seen someone’s legs sticking out from underneath a car, or if I’d heard the sound of a power saw coming from under a car, I’d have thought, Gee, I guess this person has no other place to work on their car. Then, one morning when my husband started our car to come home after work, he realized something was very wrong. The normally quiet engine was now VERY LOUD, and was not running smoothly. It only took our mechanic a few seconds to diagnose the problem; he knew...
