Abusive Thoughts…

One day as I was recently driving, which I do lots with my career, I was thinking about a biography I am editing with my amazing 10th grade English teacher.  Sometimes, I cry as I read chapter after chapter of this powerful story of abuse that my mother endured, but was spared.  I hope you can read her story one…

Joy + Joy =

Joy + Joy = Joy Overflowing….seems like a simple formula right?  When we have joy in our lives and we know what we are doing is pleasing to Christ, thus giving Him joy, then our joy overflows into other lives.
