Finding Joy

It was 11 years ago when a young woman living in east central China learned she was expecting a baby. She was a hard working wife, but financial resources were very low, and visiting a doctor was out of the question.

The guy who ruined Christmas in November

I hang my head in shame as I write this, and I know this is an overused cliché, but if I can save one parent from making this painful mistake, then he or she won’t have to experience the horrors of sucking the joy out of their children (because I have yet to meet a parent who strives to do that).

Dying to self…not my cup of tea

The Tea Cups. One of my favorite “must dos” when hanging out at an amusement park. Oh, but Tea Cups are just a warmup for me. I am the consummate theme park “fearless warrior”. I can ride anything at any time…and multiple times in a row if given the chance. For you see, I am called to lead the family through…
