Crowned By the King

Sometimes I need a reminder as to whom I belong.  I am more than a wife, mother, sister, and friend, I am a daughter of the King of Kings!  This is a beautiful time of year to remember that.  As many think about how the King left His glorious throne to come to this 'ole earth as a humble baby only to be rejected and crucified.  All for the love of undeserving, the ones who rejected him, mankind.

Happy Birthday, Dad!

This is the last picture I have of my dad before he walked out the door last summer only to enter the hospital and never return.  I wish it was one of the two of us together.

If you were here dad this is what I would give you for your birthday:

And you would LOVE it!  

But you're not here, yet, I know you are where there are things way better than homemade apple pie!

A Giveaway for your horse-loving reader!

This is an adorable story about Libby, a ten year old horse lover.  But it's a bit more than that.  It's a story of dreams and willing those dreams to come true.  

If you have a horse lover in your family, then she will absolutely want this book!  Age level 7 and up.

"Ten-year-old Libby Thump loves two things: her dog Margaret and horses. She dreams about them, draws them all the time, and more than anything she wants to take lessons and learn to ride like a real horsewoman. But when her mother decides to give the lessons to her older sister instead, Libby is beside herself. Libby’s mom says Brittany needs the lessons more, to cure her “boy crazy phase”—and she also wants Libby to be “more girly,” like Brittany. But Libby just wants to be herself.
