It dawned on me recently that it’s been about three years since I quit my job as a group home manager. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss it, I LOVED my career and never thought I would be a stay-at-home mom. But God has been truly gracious with me over the last…Continue Reading “Surviving your first year as a homemaker”
I’m blogging on The Mighty today about church and inclusiveness. Check it out!

Among the six was a very close friend of mine, one of the first people I became close to at Karis. Before our pastors baptize a believer, they always give the individual a chance…Continue Reading “The joy of a life unlived.”
One of the cooler things about Karis is that 3/4th’s of the congregation has their own blog.
