I'm a huge fan of hearing why I'm not good enough. It gives me great delight to see the many ways that I fail. I thrive at feeling incompetent. Ha! Yeah...actually, I hate it. Whenever someone tells me I can't do something, I desperately want to prove them wrong. I hate feeling exposed of my… Continue reading Who is the Worst Sinner?
Goodness: by definition is virtue; moral excellence. Is that what we see today? Maybe I just like to live under a rock...maybe I'm so disgusted by the news and friends postings on Facebook that I'd rather just pretend that it's not out there.

As a mother, the only time I really get to myself is when Kaylee is down for a nap. Otherwise, she's with me everywhere. And I mean EVERYWHERE in this house.

Teenagers and young adults running around a church sanctuary with faces COMPLETELY covered with random shapes, colors, and designs while no one says a word...this is the Mime.
