Just let Him drive

This post may contain affiliates. We recently spent the weekend hillside with family. It was picture perfect. Fall is here and I can feel the crisp air and see signs with falling leaves and autumn decor out. My niece is in the teenage years and we all know what that means, she is wild about being behind the […]

Could you find Jesus in a bar?

The place was familiar, it was what I would consider “my old stomping ground.” As I sat there spinning on the stool slightly uncomfortable swigging my ice water and lemon, this particular spot was new to me but pretty much the same as all of the other bars. The lights turned down low, you know so […]

From Orphan to a Queen

When I was a little girl I remember my parent’s telling me I could be anything I wanted to be.  Do you remember what that felt like?  For me, it was pure satisfaction, I wanted to be a giraffe. My mama said I told the pageant judge at the ripe age of 7, when ask what I […]

“She picked them, He chose me.”

It was a breezy April evening, lately our Mississippi weather has remixed on us leaving our flowers so confused. The Sharks (my son, Xander’s soccer team) were playing an excellent game, they are in the fundamental stage of soccer so watching it click for them is so entertaining.  Meraleigh, our sweet 3 year old found herself skipping and picking clovers […]

Convenient Christian

I have, we live in Mississippi and our hot is different, you might pass clean out just from heat. I’ll be that car sitting in the isle with my blinker on directing […]

A Pearly Mess

Saturday seemed like perfect day for me to pull my summer box from the attic, out with the sweaters and in with the strappy dresses! I was glad to spend a few hours organizing my closet, in my mind it looked like HGTV came but in real life it is just a mama closet where […]

Mama Nem’

Mama Nem’ It’s no surprise that I love old things, matter of fact the shirt I’m wearing today is ten years old. Old cookware, brooms, tools, aprons, frames, furniture, and the list forever grows. I have an old screwdriver that was my great grandmothers, it has a clear yellow handle and is rusty as the […]
