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 25

When we got home from the hospital yesterday, two of TyAnn’s older sisters were waiting on her with stuffed crust pizza, animal fries, new fish and a new fish tank that lights up different colors for her bedside.
