How to Begin Cherishing Your Life

  We made it through another 31 Days of writing for me and reading for you. I’m actually finishing this a little past the 31st day, but that is just my life. Thank you so much for joining me on this journey. I told you about my day, my week, my year. I shared about

Cherishing My World

  “For God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten Son…” So familiar. Such a beloved verse. But I question, do I love enough to give? Cherishing life broadens from those people and things closest to me. But sometimes, I’m narrow-minded and think only of those things I naturally cherish and love. The

Cherishing and Honoring Life

  It was the best of times and it was the worst of times. That may be the beginning of a classic novel, but it is also the story of our life this year. In a bittersweet way, we have learned the value of another person’s life. I cannot have a series on cherishing without

Cherishing the Celebrations

  Like any other family, we have special traditions¬†over the year. Here is a quick pictorial tour of our year:

Cherishing My Children

  When I first started my parenting journey 13 years ago, I never could have dreamed how special motherhood could be. I also never could have dreamed how challenging and heart-wrenching it could be. However, despite all the difficulties of parenting, it is amazing that God chooses to bless us with beautiful relationships. Over the

Cherishing Church Family

  I am sure you have figured out by now that our family embraces the Christian faith. We believe that faith is active and part of an active faith for us is church attendance. We do not go to church as a way to maintain a checklist of good activities. Why We Go To Church
