Thankful for Strings and Buttons

Thankful for Strings and Buttons

It was a cold Saturday evening in downtown Atlanta. The homeless shelter kitchen was filled with the down-and-out, men and women with only the clothes on their backs to call their own.

Has God Trusted You with His Silence?

Has God Trusted You with His Silence?

* This contains affiliate links. Is God silent in your life right now regarding situations and circumstances? I can hear the proverbial crickets chirping in mine most days. I want answers now. I want the pressure and uncertainty wiped from my life along with the sinking feeling in my stomach that says unless God shows up all is lost. Are you there too?

Should I Have My Child Evaluated for Speech Delays?

Milestones in babbling, saying “dada” and “mama,” passed us {Read More}
