The Legacy of Worship

The love of music is a legacy I am So thankful for. Music is the rhythm of the soul, it can change the atmosphere in the home in seconds.

Engaging but Not Encouraging Halloween

Beautiful fall with all its glory. Wonderful bounty, plentiful harvest, and Halloween. Do you ever feel like Halloween ruins it? When I was a young mom, I struggled so much with how to handle Halloween. We were teaching our daughter to love Jesus, to walk in purity, turn from sin, and to also be a LIGHT in the darkness.
