Grave Robber Moments

Playing college golf taught my kids many things and, for that, I am grateful. Was it all fun and exhilaration? NO! But there is a “grave robber” moment that we all experienced. For our family personally, it was one of the most amazing ways we have seen God’s provision. This is still a very emotional […]

My Goal

“Oh NO…she’s up!” Yep, I am determined to wage war on Satan in 2015! This 5′ 1 1/2″, 52 and half year old woman with blonde hair from a bottle…in the Back 9 of life…is sick and tired of being sick and tired and I am going down fighting the enemy! I am determined to […]

An Opportune Time

Have you ever done something wrong and the minute you did it…..you thought…”Wow…why did I do/say that?” Maybe I am alone…but I have done it and done it recently. The minute….the words rolled off my tongue…I was regretting it! I am thankful for what I have learned about these moments when they come. I have […]
