Check out this short clip from Danny as he shares his thoughts on Skillet, Appreciation and finding a burden in our hearts for Forgiveness!
Yesterday I found myself Celebrating Independence, although not exactly as expected on the Fourth of July. It was only the third day in a month that I was able to sleep eight hours, so by the time got up, walked our two Danes and made breakfast, it was late morning. My husband and I listened […]
I never considered laundry to be much of a faith-stretching activity. I mean it’s not as if loading clothes into one machine, pushing buttons and later moving them to another machine is difficult.

That is a serious trigger for my mouth to start shooting out ammo before my mind begins sorting out a better game plan.
