Following in the Footsteps of Billy Graham

I woke up this morning to the news that Billy Graham passed away. For some reason, I haven't been able to get it off of my mind ever since. No, I've never met him.

Smile: Make Life Beautiful Again

What's the first thing you notice about a person when you see them? Is it the color of their eyes? Maybe it's their outfit or the way they style their hair? For me, it's the smile.

Running Made Me a Better Mom

Tonight...I ran! If you know me, I am not a runner...at all! In fact, I despise it! My husband is the runner in the family. Even when he's deployed on his submarine, he's always trying to fit in time for a treadmill run. It's pretty crazy how they cram a treadmill onto a submarine (just… Continue reading Running Made Me a Better Mom
