My “Little” Pandemic Friend 🤗

A delight to highlight my little sister in the faith, Catherine. Our first meeting was during this 2020 pandemic at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru a few miles from my house! It was her pleasure to serve me and my pleasure to meet her 😍. Catherine’s parents are from South Korea, but she and her older sister…

Beautiful Bella

Delighted to highlight Bella who lives in the small town of Fairview, Pennsylvania by Lake Erie, my hometown 🙆‍♀️. I met Bella in a homeschool co-op eight years ago when our family was beginning our homeschool adventure. I had the opportunity to be a helper in her art class. Bella is so gracious to share…

Imani (Faith) Bê

It’s my pleasure to highlight Imani Bê (her late grandma’s name) Bell this week 🤗. She is my beautiful niece😍! I held her at just two weeks old! Look at her now. She has blossomed into a pretty tween 😘. Like her mom, my baby sister, Imani is artistic and enjoys drawing. Her favorite subject…

More than Apple

What are you worth? If you asked most people they would look at your clothes, your house, your car, your bling, your friends, and yes, even your phone to determine what they think you’re worth. If you look at the world’s standards for measuring worth, you’d say I’m not worth very much. You see, I…

Lovely Lauren

I met Lauren the first year I volunteered to help with my church’s middle school students. She was a shy and quiet 6th grader in our small group who has matured into a lovely high school sophomore 🤗. Here’s a snapshot of Lauren’s story. Her mom was born in Florida and her dad in Kentucky….

Do Love Yourself

This one’s tough for me. I’ve always had a hard time loving myself. I don’t really know why. I guess it’s because I didn’t feel worthy to be loved. It seemed I always missed the mark. I was just a little off on everything. A slow learner by design, I was not creative, witty, or…

My Little Friend 🤗

This week’s summer highlight is my favorite Starbucks barista down the road from my house. I call her my little friend 🤗. Rachel is from Newnan, GA although her dad is from Minnesota and her mom is from Indiana. She is a shift supervisor and certified barista trainer at Starbucks 🙆‍♀️😍. Presently, Rachel is waiting…

Meet Alyssa

Meet my friend Alyssa Moore. I met Alyssa in a women’s group when we first moved to Georgia in 2015. Alyssa’s friendly smile and welcoming personality made me feel right at home in our new church. Since then, we’ve chatted between church services and I’ve enjoyed getting to know the sweet spirit of Jesus in…

Know Your True Worth

True worth can’t be seen, measured, or bought. It’s why popularity, status, titles, achievements, riches, and stuff still leave us striving for more. True worth comes from what God knows about you and not what people think of you. True worth is decided by God, your Designer. It is not determined by how much you’ve…
