The Entertainer in You

  As women, God made us uniquely nurturing. The way we care for and touch our family, friends and acquaintances may vary.

Three-Fold Foundation for Fall and Winter Wellness

The last picking of fall’s garden filled the bushel baskets in Grandma’s cellar with bold colors of gold, orange, and green.

I recall the mature women in Christ as shining examples […]
