Family Lake Trip

Last week, my family and I drove up to North Carolina. We were meeting my dad’s side of the family at a lake house in the Appalachian Mountains for a¬†get-together-vacation. The scenery was stunning! Even though I’ve grown up living in a mountainous area, these mountains were far grander! The size and magnitude of it…… Continue reading Family Lake Trip

So Not Happening: Book Review

So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones is a humor-filled story that is a melting pot of God, faith, and city-girl meets countryside living.

Every time I hit my ingrown tail nail – even if it’s gently! – on a surface, it hurts like the dickens. And that is why,…… Continue reading Sin and the Ingrown Toe Nail

Romantically Inclined

As I sat reading through a romantic book one warm, summer day, I began to wonder…what is it about these stories that causes us to love them so? It could not be the plot…for a plot in itself does not serve to penetrate your soul. Though characters quickly become memorable, they could not be the…… Continue reading Romantically Inclined
