We all need God to save us from our sin — to stand in our place on the front line of a spiritual battle we can never win. You can read my testimony here. Some of us also need God to save us from someone else’s sin.
I have a love/hate relationship with traditional systems. As a somewhat OCD driven kinda person, I love organization and structure. How else would I get stuff done?! I make lists… long ones… for every-stinking-thing. I check stuff off and feel oh-so productive. Howeverrr, I hate the way formal systems encourage pretense and discourage real-life relationships.
We’ve recently added a deck to the back of our house and can’t wait to share it with folks, so a simple serving tray project was right on time. This would also make a great gift! pssst, a bag of coffee and a couple of pretty mugs would make it extra nice. ; ) I’ve seen lots […]
Half of the people who know Dwight & I can’t imagine us partying, drunk or high. The other half can’t imagine us involved in church, reading the Bible or praying. There are lots of stories like ours — of lives and marriages transformed by God’s grace — and they should all be told. I’m not […]
I had a good fight with my feelings today. I’m happy to say they didn’t win, but I’d be lying if I made out like it was easy. It was a disappointing email that brought me down early this morning — it was a reply to my application to sell my artwork at an upcoming […]
I’ve dabbled in many forms of art throughout my life, but I got serious about it in 2014. The sure way to get serious about your passion is to make it your business. It’s no longer a hobby when you need it to help feed you and your family. It takes a lot of effort to push […]

Things aren’t likely going to get better for America, no matter who becomes President because our government is a reflection of the people. Unless the hearts of the people […]
You really have to live under a rock not to have seen or heard the essential oil craze happening everywhere. Is it quackery or are they truly pure and natural gifts from God? Since we’re bombarded with gimmicks and someone always trying to sell us something, we’re left feeling like we can never let our guard down. I […]
Don’t you love it when your home is decorated with things that not only look good, but have an actual purpose? That’s what this map/art project delivers ~ beauty and function. The first thing you need is a map of a favorite family destination…
I hope summer is going great for you. It’s been busy around here, but all is good. We’ve got 20-ish chicks running around… so cute! This late sleeper cracks me up, all like — “Where’d everybody go?” lol! They’re getting your worms, dude. = ) We made a fun pair of wooden flip-flips for some summer decor. […]
