40 Things I Plan to Do Before I Turn 40

Well, today is the big day. I am 39. 39 amazing years. God has been good to me. Even in my darkest moments, I have felt His presence. I thank Him for that.

Are You Seeing Your Kids For Who They Really Are?

Years ago, I was at an event. I can’t tell you the name of the event or who I was with because I can’t remeber, but I do recall something said by one of the speakers. She shared a story about raising her daughter. This woman talked about how she was outgoing and social while her daughter was more quiet and soft spoken.
