We just went through a season where everything felt hard, harder than normal. Between spiritual battles and emotional challenges and days that felt heavy, I feel like I’m just walking in the light next to Jesus now. For real, praise Him for that; for His promise that He won’t leave us and His reminder to… Read More Thankful
Snakes, Tarantulas, and Scorpions. All three of those things are animals we have found in our bedroom.

Psalms 95:4 In His hands are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. In these last couple steaming hot months, going day to day has been tough.

Other than sharing our crazy experiences, my favorite thing to talk about is food and health related things.
