Whether it’s Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday…“because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 Have a GREAT Saturday, moms….may you experience God’s faithfulness in the areas of your […]
“Look at the land with your own eyes, since you are not going to cross this Jordan.” Deut 3:27 We can often look at ourselves or our children through the lenses of others. I’ve got them. You’ve got them. We’ve all got them….people in our lives who have something to […]
Do your children ever wander? Maybe at Target or in the grocery store?
