Six nominations…

Following Him Beside Still Water and My Loud Bipolar Whispers nominated me for this and I accepted the challenge, because I feel this is a wonderful way to 'pay it forward' and acknowledge those who read, comment, and express their support for all of us out there pouring out our hearts...

The calling on our lives…

“What’s your calling in life?” Honoring God. I saw this question on a blog post by Insanity Bytes (love her blog so hard!).

The sound of her voice…

Our daughter was a quiet baby and, at the time, we didn't think too much about it. Not only was she a quiet baby, but she slept on a schedule the moment she came home from the hospital. We just thought she was an easy baby. One of the things that stood out, though, was the… Continue reading The sound of her voice…

Discovery in the flaws…

After much work editing and formatting, I looked over the proof copy that arrived. I wasn't sure what I would discover, but I didn't expect to see all of the flaws and imperfections. There were stray commas peppered on the pages, spacing didn't seem to be aligned, and words missing started jumping out at me. How… Continue reading Discovery in the flaws…
