What he didn’t know…

What he didn’t know was the impact he had on our lives. What he didn’t know was that first Sunday when he hugged our then seven year old’s neck as a greeter at church he changed my heart about a “big church”. We’d been in town three days when we walked through the doors of…

Update by the numbers

6 months • In our new environment we are thriving and exactly where we never knew we needed to be. In fact it’s so amazing I’ve had trouble putting it all in words. It’s been nothing short of a miracle. It was a quick, unexpected move. Just 45 days from job offer, to sell house,…

January 25, 2020

Can you believe it is 2020? It’s hard to believe Christmas was a month ago. A month ago we were indulging in Christmas goodies and traditions. I tend to hold on to Christmas longer than most. I may actually be watching a Christmas movie as I type 😉 I love the Christmas carols, Christmas movies,…

Sunday Night Supper

Sunday afternoons I try to cook things for the week. I made pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip muffins (recipe below) and soup. Tonight it’s extra chilly and a perfect soup night. Tomato soup & grilled cheese were requested by my eight year old. She loves soup almost as much as I do. I didn’t have celery…

The Day I Never Want to Forget

Today is the day I never want to forget. It started with howling winds and pouring rain. I was warm and snuggly when my newly eight year old bounced on my bed. Shelton’s been planning this day for weeks. Church then breakfast at the Waffle House, lunch of rice and beans, followed by dinner of…

Hangry Girl Bisque

After school and swim I had a cold and cranky girl on my hands. She was beyond starving and not ready for homework. While she had a hot shower I made her favorite soup. Thick, warm, and yummy! It’s actually a super easy soup recipe I’ve previously posted. Today I revised Shelton’s favorite “pumpkin soup”…

Football • Food • Family

My idea of a great Fall Saturday involves drinking coffee, watching football, and cooking in my jommies. Family, Football, and Food, are definitely a few of my favorite things. My uncle Marshall always put a roast in the crockpot when we were all coming home. Since we were all coming from different directions and arriving…

Exciting Adventure

Another September 1st marks another new beginning, another birthday, another year to plan, pray, and dream. But the most amazing part is that I’m exactly where I did not pray to be. That’s the exciting part of surrendering everything { I Mean Everything } to The One who knows what you need better than you…
