When I was young, I was extremely shy. I cried in my Kindergarten school photo (yes, the yearbook photo). I had one friend who took care of me throughout those younger years in school. If the teacher asked me questions, I would tell my friend the answer and she would tell the teacher for me.… Continue reading What’s YOUR Story?
I’m going to be an open book for a few minutes (ha – like I’m ever anything else!) Something I’ve learned this last year or so of my life, is to pray specifically. God cares about us, and sometimes we are so shy to pray for what we want, what we need, that we don’t… Continue reading Have not, because ye ask not…

Sitting at Chili’s with Macy, Olivia, their friend Hannah, and my friend (Hannah’s mom)… Continue reading Macy is a “Proper Girl”
