Never Say Never!

Never say never

It started off as a bit of a joke that every time I said I was never going to do something, it seemed to happen. However as I think about my life, especially my life since I have become a Christian (when I was 18) it is very clear that saying I will never do something....and even thinking I will never do something, is a personal challenge to God. … [Read more...]

Baked Pumpkin Risotto {Recipe}

Baked Pumpkin Risotto

Protecting Your Relationship from Inappropriate Friendships?

Inappropriate Friendships

My husband and I attended a marriage conference a couple of weeks ago and honestly it came at the perfect time. We had been having a hard time, and with three little people to look after and a busy life we really hadn't had many chances to talk about the things that were hard in our marriage. The conference was wonderful. There were two talks on … [Read more...]
