I’m only responsible for me. Which helps when you have no idea what’s going on.

I’m only responsible for me. Which helps when you have no idea what’s going on.

I've been listening to a lot of podcasts and sermons recently. I have a few pastors and teachers that really challenge me to be the best person I can be. I've been trying to take this seriously in how I relate to the people around me. I know I have blind spots in how I [...]

G is combining, and I need Jesus.

G is combining, and I need Jesus.

It's May 1st here in Canada, and the combines are out in full force. If you didn't grow up in a farming community you're probably thinking "ok cool, whatever." If you did grow up in a farming community, you will think one of two things: 1. She's obviously on drugs. 2. What the heck happened [...]

What is family?A different way of looking at step-kids.

I went to therapy recently. My lovely friend helped me with some of my issues regarding my step-kid's mom. She opened my eyes to a few truths I was having trouble seeing, and it helped.

I can’t drink coffee anymore..probs not gonna make it.

It is now January the 29th, in the year of our Lord 2020. It has been precisely 25 days since I've been able to handle a cup of coffee. I'm obviously dying. I've been sick the whole month of January. The whole freaking month! I had this inner ear thing going on where I was [...]
