A Life Without Social Media
I said I was doing an experiment in soul care: turn off all social media for... well, I didn't know how long.  I knew I felt the need to deactivate.  So on January 1, that's what I did.  Here's a bit about my experience, and why I turned it all back on. Ini...

Loss and Hope
I could still smell the puppy on my hands as I got the phone call.  The phone call that said Dad's cancer lit up the scans, again.    I had just left the breeder's house with hearts in my eyes.  Suddenly, I had hope, joy, sorrow and loss, all at the same ti...

Father, You are the great I AM.  You are God the Father from whom are all things and for whom I exist. All of creation came from your mind and heart.  You are full of mercy, grace, and unfailing love.  I was made in your image, inwardly and outwardly.  You ...
