Merry Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„

It's snowing as I write this. We may have a white Christmas where I live in Pennsylvania. I honestly didn't think I would actually see snow today. The school district where I substitute teach decided to go virtual today due to possible icy roads in the afternoon causing unsafe travel conditions. Looks like they made the right call. This gives me the chance to get some cleaning done and provide you with updates on upcoming events that you don't want to miss. โ„โ›„


My kiddos are home from college. We will be celebrating Christmas with my side of the family Christmas eve and my husband's family on Christmas day.

Not Again


"It is not a traditional Christian novel filled with fluff and easy answers, but a raw and real portrait of what real teens and young adults go through. Real trauma was addressed in this book. The scripture references were healing and can be applied to any hardship one is facing in life." ~ Reviewer
