“Mayberry Gals” Workout

Due to a summer day camp and the Independence holiday, we haven’t had class at Mayberry Outreach Center in two weeks. I’ve missed the folks out there and I had promised them a workout, so I thought I would share it with you as well. This is based on a “Name Workout” a friend had […]

God’s Provision

Yesterday, I read an article in Guidepost magazine about this lady who was feeling down and went running. When she got to her mailbox, a friend had sent her a book because she had recently lost her dog. I’ve been waiting on something for a while and today God delivered. I was starting to get […]

Conformed versus Transformed

It’s so exciting when God speaks to me through His word. He can speak to you as well! I’m still in Genesis and following J. Vernon McGee’s book “Thru the Bible”. Reading Genesis 24 today about Abraham’s servant going to find Isaac (Abraham’s son) a wife. The word “transforms” popped off the page! Why? My […]

Blessed Beyond Measure

I can’t think you enough for the kind words, gifts, cards, and support as I finished up teaching at the Carroll Wellness Center. I’ve fought back tears saying “good bye” to you guys, but it’s really just “see ya later”. You can’t get rid of me that easily. You don’t know how much I’ve enjoyed […]


There’s only 8 business days left in the month of February. I know because I have decided to quit teaching group exercise classes at Carroll Wellness Center at the end of the month, and it’s a little bittersweet counting down the days. Why have I decided to give up one of my favorite callings thus far […]

Study of Genesis

Right before Christmas, I started studying the book of Genesis. I’ve read bits and pieces before, but not done an in-depth study of it. I’m really enjoying it and came across this that I wanted to share with you today: I’ve already learned so much in this study and I love Mr. McGee’s insight and […]

The end of 2016

Even though the bed was comfortable and I didn’t want to rise, I got up with my husband at 4:30 am this morning. He had to go to work and I really wanted to get my Bible reading in before the boys woke up. I’m glad I did. I’ve had time to pray, journal, and […]

Year End Review

Happy New Year! The end of the year arrived very quickly! I had intended the newsletter to be at least a quarterly event, but the everyday events got in the way. I wanted to share with you what has transpired the last half of this year. Working with youth at Joy Ranch – In March, […]

Isaiah 54

I have this music CD in my car that are verses being sung to help you remember scripture. I’ve been listening to it for a few months and one of the verses is Isaiah 54:2 “2Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy […]

I have failed.

Recently, I heard of a gal who is 16 and pregnant. It broke my heart, because even though I don’t know her very well, I remember thinking nearly a year ago that someone needed to step in and invite this gal to church. It was supposed to be me. I failed. I never “got around” […]
