Ripe for Redemption

I picked up the kiddos from their amazing school in the wealthy, sheltered part of town. The magnificent building, the pristine landscaping, the haven that the school and church property is… This place has been a great blessing in our lives. When I drive through its parking lot dotted with gorgeous red maples, it seems […]

Not about the soccer schedule….

Spoke to my best friend yesterday. We didn’t shoot the breeze about our kid’s soccer teams.  Or about ballet schedules being busy.  Didn’t talk about the sale at Macy’s or about what color we will paint our kitchens.

A panelist of women speakers was scheduled. ~ Everything we ready for the End of the Year Women’s brunch for the seminary wives and female students. I […]
