Meant to Be

We were late. We had been driving back from Michigan the day before and not arrived home until after 11pm. When we fell asleep at 1am, we decided that 7am was too early to leave in the morning, so we pushed it back to 9am. We were having a leisurely morning and so we didn’t … [Read more…]

My Why

Last weekend I got to check Utah off my list of states I haven’t yet visited. While I was there, I attended JamCon (a conference for a company called Jamberry, which I’ve sold nail products for as a hobby for over 3 years). I am glad I finally had the chance to go. It was … [Read more…]

Wk 2: My Neighbor is Hungry

This week’s post comes from a friend of mine, Jennifer, who had an experience just last week. I asked if her story could be shared here and with her permission, it is written below. After Ash Wednesday Noon Service I had the privilege to have lunch with a friend. As I was leaving the restaurant; … [Read more…]
