What I Learned in Church Today….Lifting Up My Cross

What I Learned in Church Today….Lifting Up My Cross

I have a plan that each Sunday I will write, either at nap time or after tucking the kids in bed, about what I learned in church that day. It is not really for you the reader, but more for me, so I can find my takeaway and focus on it outside of church. Which brings meRead More

What’s your biggest life changing event?

What’s your biggest life changing event?

This is my favorite personal story. Shortly after graduating from University within three weeks I quit my job, ended the relationship with the man I believed at the time I was going to marry, obtained a work visa, found an apartment (flat) abroad online to share with local occupants, and bought a one way ticketRead More
