The Importance of Education

I am on day 9 of the writing challenge.  I am so proud of myself for posting so consistently!  Woo hoo!  Today’s topic is “how important you think education is”. I am a teacher.  I am the daughter, niece, cousin, sister-in-law, and granddaughter of teachers.  Education, you might say, is in my blood.  I am … Continue reading

Seriously?

Day 8 of the writing challenge is not my favorite.  The topic is “what you ate today”.  Seriously?  I truly do not want to write it! I am a food addict.  In my youth, I was a scrawny beanpole who could eat anything and not gain an ounce.  The Boy is the same way.  My … Continue reading

Five Pet Peeves

Day seven of the writing challenge with Alyssa from The Tin Roof Teacher. Today’s topic is “five pet peeves”. This is a tough one, honestly.  I am a pretty easy going person and am fairly tolerant… I teach after all.  But if I reflect deeply, there are some things that do get under my skin more … Continue reading

My Kind of Music

I am on day six of my writing challenge with Alyssa at The Tin Roof Teacher.  Today’s topic is “your views on mainstream music”. My radio has several presets… and I barely listen to any of them thanks to Apple Music.  I do not listen to the most recent and popular mainstream music.  I do … Continue reading

The One I Want to Skip…

Day five of the writing challenge with Alyssa from The Tin Roof Teacher… and this is the first one I want to skip.  The topic is “things you want to say to an ex”.  Seriously?  I think conversations like that should be private, not posted for all to see!  That’s the problem with social media … Continue reading

A Day in the Life…

Day four of the writing challenge with Alyssa from The Tin Roof Teacher… and this one is a weird one… today’s topic is “bullet your whole day”…I am currently on a trip to Myrtle Beach with The Boy and his chorus… so this is nothing like a normal day for me. Wake at 5:30.  Normally … Continue reading

Frindle

Day three of the writing challenge with Alyssa from The Tin Roof Teacher!  This time the topic is “a book you love”. I have mentioned several times that the Bible is my favorite book.  I do not say that to earn brownie points or appear more righteous… I seriously love that book!  Since I have … Continue reading

The Literal Word of God

The Literal Word of God

It’s day two of the writing challenge!  I am linking up with my teammate, Alyssa from The Tin Roof Teacher, for 30 days of blogging!  Today’s topic is “something I feel strongly about”. The Bible is my favorite book.  I love to read the history, the poetry, the prophecies, and the promises it holds nestled … Continue reading

Five Ways to Win My Heart

Five Ways to Win My Heart

I have accepted a 30 day writing challenge with my friend Alyssa at The Tin Roof Teacher.  Just a little something to get my creative juices flowing again and get back into the habit of blogging.  Sorry to my nine followers to have been gone so long.  Hopefully you are still around and will stick … Continue reading

God’s Gift to Me…

I have felt a strong calling on my life to go into ministry for a long time.  In my spirit, I feel like this calling involves writing a book and teaching God’s people about the love and ministry of Christ… especially young people and women.  Two years ago, I started a certificate program with Liberty … Continue reading

Time to Get Serious

It is time for me to get serious about a few things.  I have felt a strong calling on my life for some time now.  I have openly testified that I feel God has been calling me into ministry.  That was my go-to response when people would ask me what I planned to do after … Continue reading

Consider it Pure Joy…

Consider it Pure Joy…

I was listening to the radio today and heard a commercial for “I am Second”.  The commercial was talking about a recent interview with ice skater and Olympic gold medalist, Scott Hamilton.  It intrigued me so much, I just had to listen to the entire interview. Scott spoke having a mysterious childhood disease which kept … Continue reading

Compassion

Compassion

I haven’t written in a while… not because I haven’t wanted to or because I’ve had nothing to say.  On the contrary, I have plenty to write, but no time to carve out to write it.  But I hope to remedy that now. I love the Bible.  It is my absolute favorite book.  I may … Continue reading

How’s Your Prayer Life

How’s Your Prayer Life

For the Collage Class… I love you! How’s Your Prayer Life? On a scale from 1 to 10 (1 being nonexistent and 10 being Mother Teresa), how would you rate your prayer life? I am hesitant to rate myself very high… as a matter of fact, my prayer life is something I definitely need to … Continue reading
