This can’t be possible

Brooke is currently sitting in her second class of Drivers Ed. This wasn’t my idea. I don’t think she needs to drive, but she and daddy disagree with me. How did she grow up so quickly?

Jacob and Joseph

Genesis 28:20-40:11 Day 3 of 90 I loved today’s reading. There was so much information to process so I’m gonna jump right in. 1. Talk about love at first sight! Jacob loved Rachel and promised to work for seven years in order to marry her. Seven years was up and Laban tricked him into sleeping […]

Genesis 1:1-16:16

After a rough start, I can officially check day one off the list. I should know by now that making a commitment like this gets satan all out of whack, so that he then takes it out on me. Well try as he might, he did not win. I listened to the reading on my […]

Victory with Jesus
