I Thirst

We had just left the opening night of our church’s passion play. The scene that unfolded in the restaurant is still a source of laughter around our house.

When we moved in, we were seven people from three generations. One generation left us over these years. Another […]

Stretch Marks

Stretch marks. They are the bane of so many women…more precisely, so many moms. Tiny scars that form because a body is being radically reshaped to make room to bring life into the world.
