The last day of the year can bring all the feels!

I don't know how it is for you, but the last day of the year can bring all the feels! It's 24 hours mixed with all the things this year brought to your life...  all the things you hoped the year would have brought to your life... combined with a heart filled with hope and excitement about all the possibilities that this next year may bring.   Twenty-sixteen brought a significant birthday my way. I celebrated by buying a domain name and making a commitment to moving forward with some ideas for women I've had for years. I'll be sharing lot's more about that in the coming days with the launch of the SHE IS NETWORK in January 2017. (I...

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior...

Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. Psalm 127:3,4 Around 19 years ago during a season of desiring to have another child and for whatever reason that not happening for us, a close friend felt impressed to share Psalm 127 with Ron and I.   Within a few months we were expecting our first son and the words of Psalm 127 has hung on a wall in our house along with all 5 of our children's baby pictures. A few months ago I bought 5 arrows representing each of our children.  I wrote out the verse...
