Why Blog?

Why blog? My mother brought this idea to me and I was a bit skeptical at first. However, a calling has been felt lately to somehow share my insight and journey as a soldier for Christ. It has been prayed about and I don’t want to risk missing His answer. God blessed me with the […]

Life’s Drastic Detour – Entry 57

Prayer request : Today at 3:30pm TyAnn will have several scans done to see if her tumor has shrunk. Tomorrow she will have a bone scan to make sure it has not spread. Please pray! Matthew 21:22 ” If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” TyAnn is home and doing […]
