My Girls

This is my oldest daughter Ashleigh, she is 15 and my best friend. She is very motivated and growing so much everyday in Christ that it brings tears to my eyes. She plans to be an Oncologist and I am so proud of her. The little boy in the picture is Aydin, we help his mother out with him whenever we can, I consider him my first grandchild.

This is my baby Alyssa, we call her Boo because when she was little she looked just like Boo from Monsters Inc.  She is 12 and she has such a big heart and worries about everyone she meets. It makes me such a proud mom to see how she cares so much for everyone.  She wants to be a veterinarian when she is older.


I want to see the movie Courageous pretty bad, I think it looks to be very good.  I would love to hear any reviews if anyone goes to see it.

Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, they face danger every day. Yet when tragedy strikes close to home, these fathers are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, and their faith. From this struggle will come a decision that changes all of their lives. With action, drama, and humor, the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures embraces God's promise to "turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers." Souls will be stirred, and hearts will be challenged to be ... courageous!~~Taken from

Youth Groups

I help at our church with the youth group and I just have to say that I love to see the youth pray over each other and reach out to one another like they do, it really touches my heart. I'm curious to know what some of you like about your church youth group, what types of lessons do you have and how do you reach out to the community.

A sad day

Well  my daughters best friend lost her granny to cancer today. Please keep her family in your prayers as they face these hard times. I tried to be there for her and it brought back losing my own mother the same way a year ago.

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

Oh so tired

So do any of you suffer from restless leg syndrome? It is the most annoying thing I can think of. It comes on about once every month or two and lasts for several nights for me. I finally fell asleep at 5 am this morning and was hoping to avoid it tonight but of course I am having no such luck. I have tried stretching them, walking around for a bit and am thinking maybe a warm bath may give me a little bit of relief. Wish me luck. I would love to hear if any of you have any tricks that help.

Praying for others

I just wanted to put out there that I love praying for others and when I do it really brings me closer to the Lord so please feel free to ask for any prayer requests, anytime.

My mother, my angel!

I cried when you passed away. I cry today still. Although I loved you dearly, I couldn't make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me he only takes the best. Put this on your status if there is someone in heaven you miss everyday.  
My mother passed away from cancer on November 19th, 2010, that was by far the worst day of my life and I miss her so much.  She was an amazing person and loved by all who met her.  I just really felt like I needed to put her on here somewhere.

John 3:16

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (NIV)

Isn't it truly an awesome thing to know that God loves all of us, no matter what we have done in our lives?


I am new to blogging and hoping that it will be an awesome experience.  I just wanted to let everyone know that I am open to any questions you have about anything, I will try to answer as best I can and I love to give advice and help other people.
