My First Triathlon Sprint

Checked in and ready to go! This past weekend I was able to accomplish a goal that even a year ago seemed impossible. Last April, I weighed in at the doctors office at a hefty 235 lbs.

My hope would be that no one would intentionally start their day in this manner … Continue reading Life Lesson Series – Choose to Love

Your Love

I wrote the following a week ago. I had read a passage of scripture from Ephesians 2:19-22 and was overwhelmed by the promise found in verse 22. That within each of us who believe in Christ, He is within us. May we always remember that!! YOUR LOVE Your love, your grace, your mercy for me, … Continue reading Your Love
