    HOME OF THE HUSKIES

    I have always had a passion for animals, and knew I had to get involved when I came across two huskies belonging to a young Marine on a Facebook group I follow. The group is for men and women that get deployed and need to find a temporary home for their animals while they're serving. The foster family he lined up had fallen through, and he was going to have to give up his beloved dogs while he was serving overseas for a year. I could only imagine the devastation he was feeling. My husband and I talked it over and decided… Read More

    LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOR

    The Bible says love your neighbor as yourself, but what does it actually mean? How do we actually love our neighbors as ourselves? I began praying and asking the Lord to show what it looked like for me. He showed me several ways that we could love our neighbors. My children and I made goody bags filled with candy, scripture cards, candles, hand soaps, and homemade goods to pass out for Valentines Day, Easter (which also would include a Bible), Summer, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Our children looked so forward to making these bags and passing them out in the evenings.… Read More
