My Sanctuary

October 11, 2015



I’ve always considered the great outdoors to be my sanctuary ~ The only safe haven I have ever known and a place of healing. Growing up in the mid-west, the woods (mountains) with all its streams and rivers is where I’ve always felt the most peace, the most comfortable, and the most at home. It is […]

Thank You…

September 30, 2015


You are such a blessing!

I’d just like to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for SO many things, but especially for all of you! While parts of our journey may be best spent in solitude, I don’t think they were meant to be traveled alone in their entirety. In fact, how else would God be […]

Do Not Judge

Do not judge...

 DO NOT JUDGE “You don’t know what storm I’ve asked her to walk through.”  ~GOD We’ve each been given a cross to bear… It doesn’t matter it’s weight or size. It doesn’t matter if you believe or not. What matters is that we are not designed to carry it alone. But, perhaps… that is exactly why we have them.

Beautifully Broken

I'm So Beautifully Broken

Yes, I am.   Humbled and Loved Even in my absence during the last two months, the stats show you’ve continued to stop by regularly.
