September has been flying by, and I’m sure October will come and go just as quickly. With each day that passes, we are moving closer to Election Day. Since this election year just so happens to also be during a pandemic, tension and confusion seem to be at an all-time high. Part of the confusion...

I was the kid who always got excited when I walked into Walmart and saw a fully-stocked school supply section; nothing made me happier than choosing folders and pens, as I prepared for the first day. Along with my enthusiasm for school supplies came the appreciation of my teachers who showed how...

Patriotism was never a question for me. With parents who had served in the Marine Corps and Navy, I learned a lot about sacrifice and the importance of standing behind those who protect us. After 9/11, this commitment to our country only grew stronger, and there isn’t a day that goes by where I...

It seems that, everywhere I go, people are describing this time as “the new normal.” In terms of families spending more time together, valuing our time, and not taking the little things for granted, I truly hope this is considered “the new normal.” These past months have been a wake-up call to...

In 2018, Rachel Hollis shot up to stardom with the publication of her book “Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be.” This book became wildly popular within the Christian women community; I was even on the launch team for it....
