When Blessings Aren’t Fulfilled

Photo from Quotefancy  Recently, I fell ill with a pretty nasty sickness. I was miserable, more miserable than I’ve ever been, and I asked my husband for a blessing. In the blessing, he blessed me with a speedy recovery. However, it took about three months for me to fully recover. A week after my husband […]

Thankful for My Many Faces

Since it is the season of giving thanks, I wanted to touch on something I am especially thankful for the older I become, and that is my many faces. The many faces of my personality, that is!

Just One Thing

A Church of Imperfect People
