They Got It!

For me, mentoring started at home. It was a lifestyle of pouring into the three lives that were always with me. If I was working in the yard, they were there. If I was cleaning the house, they were given tasks to help. Many hours of directing plays, skits, musicals, human videos, etc., for church... Continue Reading →

Love Enough

"Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." - Jesus February. It is the time of year we hear the most talk about love. Flowers, roses and candy can be seen in every store. The main focus during this time tends to be set aside for showing... Continue Reading →

Lessons from a Train

It was a priceless moment. As I got on the floor to play with my three year old grandson, his 14 month old brother spotted us. It didn't take long for that bundle of energy to land in my lap. As much as I attempted to prevent it, those small hands grabbed the wooden train... Continue Reading →

Care for the Heart

Jesus is the key to broken hearts. Sitting across the table from a young mom, I listened to as she shared her story of shock, pain and grief.
