I don’t need a resolution I need a…

Planner? No…. work out plan? No…. I need a Savior.     I have wrestled with the thought of coming up with one word for 2017 and what goals I’d like to to achieve in 2017. Only one real thing came to mind. I need more of Jesus. When I fill myself up with more of Him I am content.   I was reminded by a sweet friend of mine the other day about how many times our children cry out…

What every teacher needs!

    I have been teaching for 7 years now and still love it after all these years. When I first started my job I was not a coffee drinker but as the years the went on something was missing. That something was coffee. I needed coffee to start my day and I still do after many years of teaching. I take my coffee very differently than you probably. I can not drink coffee without creamer. I’d say my cup is 1/2…

It’s okay to not cry.

Being emotional is okay.   BUT what if you don’t cry when you’re going through hard things. That’s also OKAY.  God has been so faithful in my life. He has proven himself gracious and loving. Going through a miscarriage is by far one of the hardest things I have dealt with. During both…
