The weekend after Thanksgiving, I received an incredible blessing. On Sunday November 25th, 2018, I walked into church knowing I needed to be anointed with oil and prayed over. Our church calls it administration. It’s when two ministers anoint your head with blessed oil and pray for you. It talks about this in James chapter … More The Lord Jesus Christ prays for you.
In the last month, I have faced some evils. A fake publishing company CEO tried to dupe me into paying $6000 to let his company publish my book. My oldest son’s orthodontist tried to trick us into treatment he didn’t need, and paying a balance we didn’t have. A travel company try to scam me … More No more trick or treat. I choose Thanksgiving.
The other night, I couldn’t contain my thoughts. I needed a sounding board. My husband was the recipient. Worries started pouring out.

On Sunday, I was getting ready for church, and had the thought that maybe I should ask to be prayed over with oil. It was sacrament Sunday. I was reasoning with myself in my mind.

When I was 13, I took a repelling class at church camp. I’m naturally adventurous and used to be a teeny bit of an adrenaline junky before my body disintegrated. I thought a repelling class would be a piece of cake. We went to a 40 foot water tower, geared up, and started. When it … More White Knuckled Grip
This is something my husband calls me as a joke. I hate it. I loathe the term “Floxed.” It makes this sound like some horrible hobby club. This isn’t a club anyone wants to join.

So what is “Floxed?” The FDA press announcement here: https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm513183.htm describes it as ,”disabling … More One Floxie Lady
God closes doors sometimes. The trick is, not hanging on so tight, you get your fingers caught in the door. When I graduated high school, I had a plan.

I ran myself ragged the last few weeks. We’ve had a lot going on, as I’m sure most of you do. We’ve had family in from out of town, which was wonderful, but my body needs recoup time from being out and about, and I didn’t allow myself time to recover. My time with … More He did it first.
