This is my birthday month as well as my 4th Anniversary of being Cancer FREE!!!!!!!  This is not some big marketing ploy, I want to celebrate and to do so in every aspect of my life. I am very grateful for another year of life, especially one that is cancer free!  I have been given

Worship Week @ Ridgecrest Conference Center

Worship Week is here.  I’m so excited I got my room set up this morning.  The kids helped me unload the car. It is so easy to pack more when you are driving than when you are flying. I was setting up when McKenzie comes running in, “Mom, listen what I just read in Nehemiah……!.”

3 Years Cancer FREE!

July 6th, a day that will forever be locked in my memory. July 6th, the day my life and the lives of my husband and children were turned right upside down. That was four years ago. Today was July 6th again. Funny how it comes around every year about this time. My day was so busy

The Refreshed Coupon Clipper

OK, anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE a good deal. However, you won’t see me buying something based only on the fact that it is a good deal. I LOVE a good deal on the things that we need and use. I can consistently save about 30% on my groceries with coupons. I

Hit the Ground Running

Wow, making the decision to turn the light off on cancer has felt like getting off of a merry-go-round. The only thing is we have had to hit the ground running. Both of my girls are going on a Mission Trip to Belize at the end of May 2014. So we are beginning with fundraising.
