During the early years of marriage, my husband and I consistently talked about speech, body language, and tone. I had married a man highly sensitive to communication and he had married a woman who was less than aware. I was happy to say my truth and didn’t always care about how it was said. He [...]

After kissing the head of my 10 year old, I entered my almost 12-year-old daughter’s room to find her waiting eagerly with her Bible open. “Mama, I want to show you something.” My daughter [...]

The beginning of the year didn't start off quite like I planned...anyone else? The transition between 2016 and 2017 was going to be seamless for me.
