Taking Off the Limits

May 24th, 2012 by Stacie Reeser | Posted in Blog | No Comments »

I can remember shortly after giving birth to my first child, Claire, I sat outside on the porch crying from exhaustion. I told the Lord through tears, “Lord, I am so tired.

See the Moon

May 15th, 2012 by Melissa Cole | Posted in Blog | No Comments »

Several years ago, I was driving home from work late in the evening and came to a stretch of road that ran alongside a clearing in a field. It was then that in the open night sky I noticed the largest, brightest moon I had ever seen in my life! It was HUGE and hung …Read More
