A friend once joked that all my blogs have happy endings. I don’t necessarily think that is true, as my life isn’t particularly always going in the direction I desire, but I do try to find the victory that is within everything I face. Or at least something to be thankful for. This is one … Continue reading When the Answer Devastates You
At some point in our lives, most of us have sat in a doctor’s office, and they have ordered testing for information about a concerning matter. Any time we have a medical test, there is always the possibility of unfavorable news and a life changing report coming back. How do you usually respond?

Just when things were going well…I’d been rejoicing that the tide was finally turning in our family’s favor, as it appeared that we’d finally won the faith fight concerning Kennedi’s injury.

Last week I was surprised on Social Media, learning that I had won tickets from Faith on the Field for a concert with the Christian band, Unspoken.

The nation observed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s Day of Service this past Monday. This time of year also brings MLK weekend sports tournaments around the country.
