My Heart’s Cry 100th Blog

I didn't just wake up one day and decide to start a blog. I bet you didn't either. But here we are, 100 blogs later, and this is the story of how it happened. My writing days started with a journal. I read an article about journaling in Victoria Magazine when my second child was... Continue Reading →

Easing off Social Media

Social Media (such as Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn) have been places for me to communicate for a little more than a decade. I have been able to communicate with people from my childhood, school friends, teachers, family, ministry partners, organizations like church and other ministries. During this time I've run different pages/groups like one for... Continue Reading →

Driving Ms. Daisy

"Driving Miss Daisy" was a popular movie about a woman and her chauffer. In life sometimes we are chauffer to someone who needs a ride as a small act of kindness. Several years ago, I worked for "Young Life" and their program for young moms was called "Young Lives" . It was called Young Lives... Continue Reading →

Unfortunately each party is deeply flawed because people are involved. Having the Dems in control of the House, Senate and Presidency makes me feel a bit like the Israelites... Continue Reading →

Homeschooling: An ungrateful student

Have you encountered grumbling instead of appreciation in your children during school lately? I have. So how do we get back to a grateful attitude in these strenuous times? It doesn't matter what year it is, we need to be training up our children to love learning and learning how to be thankful. It's been... Continue Reading →

Remove all Fear

Don’t be afraid of what others say or what will spook up the nation. What this fear is doing to the mind and emotions of the nation - the fear it evokes - is not God's doing at all. Remove all fear from your mind. Don’t listen to those who go on and on. Guard... Continue Reading →

America Wake Up!

The time has come for America to wake up! Sometimes I don’t like to hear statements like this, especially from others who seem judgmental. In fact, it makes me upset because I like to see the good in people. Do you lean towards grace or judgement? I've had to reckon with the fact that vast... Continue Reading →
