Online Dating, (The Verdict is In) & A Marriage Proposal

So, I cancelled my membership today for the online dating site I joined last month.  It’s been almost 30 days and nothing.  No emails, no instant messages, nothing.  Now, I did get one “smile” from a guy…that’s the site’s ways of someone kinda testing the waters and seeing if you’re interested.  But I will just… Continue reading Online Dating, (The Verdict is In) & A Marriage Proposal

Let It Snow!

Today it snowed.  I can’t remember the last time it waited this long to snow in Cleveland.  Last winter was definitely a mild one and I don’t think anyone expected to have another mild one back to back, but hey, if God wants to prove us wrong, let Him!  Now, normally I dread seeing the white stuff.  To me,… Continue reading Let It Snow!

My freshman year of… Continue reading When the Going Get’s Tough…

Daddy’s Girl

Like millions of Americans, I grew up without a dad.  It’s a complex story but I only saw my dad once as a child.  I remember him burying me and my half sis in the sand on the beach, the sand still in our bathing suits as we sat in the backseat of the car,… Continue reading Daddy’s Girl


I’ve been reading Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s biography written by Eric Metaxas.  Bonhoeffer. Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.  It’s been very enjoyable thus far.  I’m only a little more than a tenth of the way in (it’s a 600+ page book so I’m taking my time) but I find myself falling in love with the journey of Bonhoeffer. … Continue reading Bonhoeffer
