I became a Christian as an adult and I've heard words like redemption, salvation, glory, kingdom of God...but do I really know what they mean? I love quotes, Albert Einstein said if you can't explain something simply, you don't understand... Continue reading

Two personas exisiting in ONE person. Elsa a bit rigid (frigid? bad joke), Anna-a free spirit, Elsa-practical, Anna-childlike and playful, Elsa-reserved and shut down with all consuming fear. Elsa is driven out of her rightful kingdom because of greedy, evil... Continue reading

Finding Nemo is deeply connected to my journey with Tage. Tage stayed home with the stomach flu today and I put that movie on for him. Way back when, I "felt" Jesus sit on the couch with me, arm around... Continue reading

I can't go in elevators. I'll attempt carrying my baby in one arm, yanking a stroller up 2 flights of stairs with the other, while encouraging Tage to keep up versus taking an elevator. Thankfully a Good Samaritan helped me.... Continue reading

Jacob's cry ignited a world wide campaign to stop evil. Deep, buried in the pit of his soul, where he dares not enter if he can help it. The pit seals off to trap the trauma and horror of seeing... Continue reading
