Deliverance From The Sting of Divorce

A few weeks ago Tuesday September 6, 2011, something SPECTACULAR HAPPENED! I woke up in my bed and NEITHER of my daughters was there! For me, that was a divine moment that really represented a point of deliverance for my family. As I searched to figure out what the date was and why ALL OF [...]

Let's Talk About being Single, Saved and Starting to Date Again!?!

Okay, so it’s been a LONG, LONG, LONG time since I’ve posted to this blog. Definitely due to more reasons than one.
