The View from Here

Priscilla | Nov 22, 2009

  I woke up this morning to a different view.You see, for the past week I’ve had a glorious vacation. Jerry and I celebrated our 10th anniversary by taking a trip with a few friends. Our room was right on the beach. The comfy bed, in the spacious accommodations, faced a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows […]

My Kids are Growing Up!

Nov 19, 2009

I just realized that my kids are growing up. It just occurred to me last week when my 5 year old turned to his daddy and said, “Dad, where can I find a woman?” What?? That startled me into the reality of the passage of time. As I pondered, it occurred to me that my […]

Small Beginnings, Big God

Rachel Anne |

  Pushed back behind the medicine bin, on a shelf in my kitchen cupboard, sits a square ceramic trivet.  It is the first thing I ever painted. When I look at the simple grapevine wreath design, made years ago in a tole painting class at my local hobby store, I have to smile.  It smacks […]

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year already. I was first introduced to Jerry and Priscilla in September 2007 – at that time I was […]

Help! I’m in Women’s Ministry

Rachel Anne | Nov 12, 2009

I was recently asked to help lead the women’s ministry in my local church.  I was pretty excited about it until I was given 3 large boxes of paperwork and history from the past 20 years! The ladies who served before our current team did such a fantastic job (and were so organized) that I […]

Momentum: You’re Invited!

Priscilla | Nov 11, 2009

Hey sisters, Jerry and I are so blessed to be connected with LifeWay. Most folks just know this ministry as a local bookstore in their area. What many don’t know is that this is a HUGE company in Nashville. When I say HUGE, I mean it. The campus takes up one whole city block in […]

Here’s to the Moms…

Nov 10, 2009

  Hey sister. I’ve stopped trying to be the perfect mother. I’m exhausted. You too? When Jerry and I started having our children 7 years ago, I had an image of what the role of motherhood would look like. It included nothing less than a peaceful home, filled with the wonderful scents of fresh baking […]
