Pick! How to choose right when times are just wrong. Today’s pick of the day.

There are many components to publishing a magazine. One, stories. I'm all about the stories. So many to be told, so little time. Don't let anyone tell you God is not at work. Second, advertising. Selling ads supports the magazine. It is not an option, therefore takes time and energy. With that comes the opportunity to… Continue reading Pick! How to choose right when times are just wrong. Today’s pick of the day.

Plans… New Years Resolutions vs. Old Year Revelations. Which works and which doesn’t? Today’s pick of the day.

  I'm not a planner because it's my nature. I'm a planner because a lack of planning has proven costly over the years. I've learned the hard way. While I don't think it necessary to have New Years Resolutions, I do think it wise to have Old Year Revelations. To me that is key to reaching a… Continue reading Plans… New Years Resolutions vs. Old Year Revelations. Which works and which doesn’t? Today’s pick of the day.

Positions and privileges! The power of knowing what you have and how to use it. Today’s pick of the day.

Our pastor made a statement Sunday that caused me to become quite introspective. "It's not what you have, it's what you do with what you have." At seventeen years old I became financially independent out of high school. My options were limited due to circumstances beyond my control.  College like most of my friends? Or a job that would… Continue reading Positions and privileges!

Parenting! It’s never predictable and sometimes…?!?! Today’s pick of the day.

Ironically the plan was to watch Mom's Night Out. I'd heard it was a funny movie and it was a good day for funny.  I'd picked up dinner, sprawled out on the sofa, and after a deep sigh of relief, sank.  Curling up on the couch I nestled in. All alone. No one home. Me, myself and… Continue reading Parenting! It’s never predictable and sometimes…?!?! Today’s pick of the day.

Preach! It was the worst sermon I’d heard… Or perhaps the best. You decide. Today’s pick of the day.

"Serve em'." Listening as I cringed, I knew it could change everything. "If you don't know what to do when relationships are being tested, serve em'." Our pastor was in a sermon series called Life Rules. It centered around the unspoken life rules that families live by on a daily basis. The rolling eyes, clanking pots and… Continue reading Preach!
