So we all know the flu is going around. It was no different for the safe mountains of Colorado. At some point all through the week someone was on the couch.

5 Ways to Stay Connected #2

There are many-a-time when I’m driving that my kids will be talking to me and I simply do not hear them.

I’m looking at a blank blogger post section. Well, now it’s not because I’m typing, but I’m only typing to fill in the space. That’s kind of my brain lately, little bit blank.

To Big D

Friday, Kim and I jumped in her car and headed to Big D for another Single Mom’s Conference. Before we got out of town, however, we had to swing by and pick up someone we didn’t know to ride with us. *Gasp!* What were we going to do!? Girlfriend time cut short by a stranger!

I so appreciate everyone’s wisdom and knowledge and insight concerning what power our words have…or don’t have. 🙂 With that said, I do want to say this: I totally believe, with all my heart, that the power of the spoken Word of God in my life is an undeniable truth and absolutely necessary…
