Baptism

A story to make you laugh. Or shake your head. I was reading Babylon Bee, which is a satire site. Some of their “news articles” hit a little too close to home at times. They had a piece on sermons taken from popular movies. It reminded me of a sermon we heard in New Jersey…

Today’s Tractor Talk 

A while back I went LIVE on Facebook while driving down the Hwy. don’t worry, it’s not a busy Hwy. Rural north Texas.  It’s become a fun thing. Here Today’s Tractor Talk. (2 minutes) I was thinking while mowing this morning. Why is it so hard for us women to share wonderful things about ourselves?…

Grades

For those who lead online Bible studies, I have a question: How do you assign grades to your students? In my local Bible study, these ladies all earned an A: Melanie – brought me cake Nell – brought cinnamon roll and stuffed shells Courtney – brought me ice cream.  But my online students cannot bring…

Here is the one I posted tonight.  TODAY’S…

Trip Log 1.2

Star Date 3/7/16 Monday  This is how we do conference calls on the road. Notice my fun colored pencils for my Bible study and the postcards for the kids and grandkids! I worked with my headphones on while Rachel and Ron talked with engineering and marketing back in Texas. I wore headphones because their conversations are…
