A filter is a common word in today’s vernacular. Growing up, it meant a white, paper thingy you used in your Mr. Coffee to keep the coffee grains from getting into your cup of caffeine. Now, we have the French press and the Keurig, and there is no need of the big, white filters anymore….

Are you Thriving or just Getting by? Part 2

Last week’s blog post was on thriving in our spiritual lives, but this week I want to talk about thriving physically.

A Feast of Words and a Free book

How do you feed your soul? I just returned from a Christian writers conference in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. It was an exhausting, yet exhilarating five days.
