Recently, a friend shared with me the song, “One Day{When We All Get to Heaven}”, and I haven’t been able to get enough. Amelia refers to it as the “Heaven” song, and we sing along together. We even sang it at the balloon release I went to a few weeks ago. I feel like I […]

Grow Grass, Grow

encouragement, faith

When Neil and I moved into our first home well over a year ago, we knew very little about taking care of our yard. More specifically, our grass. I have fond memories of weeding our flowerbeds growing up, under the supervision of my dad. I felt like I had done my fair share of yard […]

October Book Review


book review

I am not going to lie, October was not my favorite month. Typically, I love all that this month has to offer, but this month was hectic and our family struggled to find our rhythm and it felt like our “normal days” were few and far between. We are eagerly awaiting November!  I did mange […]

There should have been five, though.   Five little pieces of wax that didn’t represent the age of a person, but instead, the age of our small group. We have been meeting together for five […]
