Journey of a Seed

Journey of a Seed

I have created a place in my kitchen to have an herb garden using mason jars and wall baskets.  I am pretty excited!   I read the directions on how to plant the seeds in the little peat moss pots and when to water the little seeds. Here are the herbs...
The Power of Our Words!

The Power of Our Words!

During my 8 year battle through darkness, I tried to read and understand the Bible, God started making the words in the Bible come to life for me.  During my quit time one morning I had a memorable light bulb moment! I was reading John Chapter 1 and it sounded so...
Mountains in Life

Mountains in Life

My girls and I recently tried to conquer a local trail “Valentine Peak”.  It was a hard hike for us, who are new to hiking.  It is about 3 ½ miles to get to the 8050 ft. peak. If that makes any sense! On this challenging adventure, we were lucky to meet a...
Life on the Ranch!

Life on the Ranch!

As we are trying to settle in at the ranch, there has been many challenges! I love learning how to take care of the ranch! To see how everything works. Fixing things that have been worn down and broken. As I learn how to use the weed eater, I might need to invest in a...

I Am Finally Home!

It has been a long journey.  A journey full of many lessons and a lot of grace.  I am finally home! I am so thankful for my time in Iowa.  I was really broken when I first came to Iowa 15 years ago.  I had two young girls and I was afraid of making the wrong...

Hornets in the House!

Hornets in the House!

About 2 months ago I saw a hornet, which I first thought was a wasp, flying around the window in our laundry room, in the basement.  I did not think anything of it.  I swatted the hornet, put it in the trash and went on with life. About two weeks had passed and my...
Who I am

Who I am

I sit at my computer with my warm, maple-ginger tea steeping, a cup of spicy trail mix and the sound of the cold wind blowing wildly outside, and I think back on this past year.  It was just over a year ago.  “Wednesday’s Place” had been...
What would I say to the Younger Me?

What would I say to the Younger Me?

  I love Christian music.  I lean on it daily to get through life’s craziness.  It reminds me of God’s love.  Sometimes the words make me stop and cry, but when I hear Toby Mac, I just want to “Move”! Mercy Me’s song “Dear Younger Me” pulls on the...
