Make Plans To Keep Summer Stress Under Control

I am leaving you with a gift—peace of

Summer. It's my absolute most favorite time of year. Especially when the weather is perfect, the kids are getting along, and the pressures and worries of normal life stay at bay.

In today's Proverbs 31 Devotion, I shared some tips on how to survive the stress of summer, and I'd love to encourage you to head over and read it.  (click here to Continue Reading

Wonderful Wednesday – Week 7


Monday's video talked about how important it is  (and how freeing and exciting it is!) to live our lives as proof of the power of Jesus Christ.
