Whether you’re trying to learn to play a musical instrument or training to do pull ups, nothing beats the power of perseverance.
In today’s devotional I want to talk about facing adversity and the discouragement that can grow when the odds seem stacked against you.
Today’s devotion is for those who’ve gone through a divorce and are still struggling with pain, anxiety, and uncertainty about the future.
Sometimes we need a helping hand and a shoulder to lean on. Someone that will listen without judgement. Someone who will empathize.

I haven’t really shared anything for a while, and I’m not sure if anyone even noticed. Life get’s busy. For everyone. So much so that I sometimes feel like speaking in nothing more than three word sentences, forcing some simplicity into my life.

When Peach showed up, she was a stray dog in terrible shape in need of a lot of attention. She’s got a wonderful spirit and has made an amazing recovery!
Our family has gone to the dogs. Or have they come to us? It doesn’t matter, either way, we are a dog family! The population of the furry members of our family fluctuates over time; the wise older ones show the young ones the ropes, the young ones ever eager to play and find mischief. […]
