Saturday Confession: My Relationship? It’s Complicated

If you’re on Facebook, you’ve seen the relationship status choice: It’s complicated. Yeah, that’s me. Not my marriage, but me. And Jesus. What makes it so frustrating is Jesus isn’t feeling any complications. He knows. And I’m really having a hard time with that. There are things I know about me that I finally receive.

Saturday Confession: I’ve Ghosted Before

I try as a mom and mentor of sorts to stay on top of the latest terms, crazes and technology. Not to be the cool middle aged lady, but to know what’s out there trying to harm my kids and children I care about. I’d love to say I always know the latest, but often I’m still behind the times.

I ¬†threw an ice sleeve and ice in a freezer bag with the cake and hoped for the best. When I presented the cake, it took a gasp of air and collapsed into a pile of peanut butter goo. My husband asked why didn’t…

Saturday Confession: The Side Trip

It was probably eight years ago, maybe longer. The kids were with grandma and my husband and I were on a fact-finding mission. We looked into adopting a senior dog and wanted to visit her before making a decision. It wasn’t local so we plugged the address into a GPS and went on our way. Once the task was done we realized we didn’t have to go the same way…
