We had the threat of tornadoes on Thursday.

I’ll admit it – I’m a big scaredy cat when it comes to tornadoes. (Years ago when I lived by myself, there was one that touched down really close to my house. It was sooo scary!) So, any time they’re in the forecast I go into a mini state of panic. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration…at least until they’re scheduled to arrive.

Thankfully we didn’t have any touch down here on Thursday, but we did have strong winds and lots of rain. You’ll love this – Trent napped as I was glued to the weather channel and wondering whether or not we should get in our safe spot. (My dad used to do the same thing when we were little.)

I’m definitely thankful that the storms passed and we were safe. Hopefully you are too!



homemade brownies


Earlier this week I was hankering some brownies. I didn’t have a box mix on hand so I opted to make some from scratch. I whipped up this Homemade Brownie Recipe. These were the best homemade brownies I’ve ever had – moist and delicious!

Now that I have this yummy recipe, there’s no need to buy a box mix. Plus, it’s “healthier” to make them myself, right? (No preservatives!)


I Almost Missed A Blessing

We all have those lazy moments when we don’t want to go to church. (Or maybe it’s just me.) Wednesday was a dreary day and I had almost talked myself out of going to church to worship with the students. But then I realized I was being selfish and forced myself to go.

Boy was I glad that I went. There were seven students that prayed to receive Christ. Had I not gone, I would have missed out on a huge blessing! (Of course, I couldn’t help but think of how many blessings I’ve missed in the past from being selfish.)

A Blast From The Past

Here’s a post from the archives that will make you think! Before you think I’m crazy, please hear me out. Read Is It Time To Take A Social Media Fast here.


Well, that’s a peek into my week and a bit of the “excitement” that’s gone on around our house. What have you been up to?
