Days of Gratitude: Cubs Win!

I really had not planned on doing the #30DaysofGratitude theme this year, because I knew I wouldn’t keep up with it.  Here it is, November 5th, and I am just getting around to writing my first post in 2 weeks.  Where have I been?  Watching and being completely distracted by the most amazing post season […]

#WorthRevisit: Climb Every Mountain

I have been working on a few non-writing projects, but decided to dust things off here.  The perfect way to do that is to participate in #WorthRevisit posts, linked up at Reconciled to You.  This post was originally published exactly three years ago.  I had started blogging about our Italian vacation, using my husband’s tablet […]

#WorthRevisit: #EveryLifeisaGift

It’s time for another Wednesday #WorthRevisit. Plus I am continuing my focus on Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Month.

#MondayMercy: Visit the Sick

#WorthRevisit: Grab Your Umbrella!

It’s Wednesday, which means I am revisiting a post from before, and linking it up to Reconciled to You and Theology is a Verb. I appreciate these two blogs sharing my posts, but I am also happy to discover other blogs too! This post originally appeared in August 2015. Students for Life Illinois will be […]

#MondayMercy: Ransom the Captive

#WorthRevisit: My Deformed Left Hand

It’s time for a #WorthRevisit post!  Today, a friend tagged me in a Facebook “memory” from four years ago.  It was a picture (not the one below) from the local Walk for Life.  It sparked memories for me too, as it was one of the last events I served as Executive Director.  I remembered that […]
