Eternal Hope

Some people come into our lives for a season, a specific period of time...others come into our lives and stay.

Where I Find Joy…

Last fall when Alyssa asked if she could take a cooking class at her school it sounded like a great idea. She loves cooking, being in the kitchen, and has thoughts of owning a restaurant one day. While I hadn’t met the chefs, Derrick and Chris Melton, I knew they owned Mimosa, a French restaurant in … [Read more...]


It was so easy making banners for Advent, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day…words like noel, hope, peace, joy, and love just fell into my lap. Easter, the most holy of holidays, is just around the corner, and I find myself coming up empty on how best to depict this event in words. … [Read more...]
