With Vision comes Revelation!chosen and precious

With the traditional Christmas right around the corner I want to share something that has always intrigued me… and that is When was Jesus really born?

First, I want to start with a personal story before I go into the biblical prophecies, facts and events.

There was a time I was very depressed and Christ came to me in a vision and  handed me a amethyest stone and stated that He was my “Living Rock” and that I was his precious stone. He then showed me the 12 foundational stones in scripture where I had been meditating for quite some time. He spoke to my  heart that I am HIS amethyst stone. Very shortly after that day a long lost friend of mine came over out of the blue and handed me a beautiful amethyest stone.. the confirmation was awesome!

“And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.                  Rev 21:18-20

*I used to wonder how the 12 stone (month) with Amethyst as the birth stone could be December.. read till the end….

Okay now lets search the scriptures. We learn that Jesus is born 6 months after John the baptist; thefore we must start with The prophecy of John the Baptist:

“When his time of service was completed, he returned home. After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. Luke 1,23-24, 26-36

Now let’s look at some biblical history, facts & events:

We know that when Christ was born, He was born in a manger in Bethlehem. Shepherds, told by an angel of His birth, visited Him and found Him “wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger” -Luke 2:12-17.

Eight days later Mary and Joseph had Him circumcised, according to the commandment –Luke 2:21 Mary then fulfilled the days of her purification — which culminated 40 days after His birth.-Luke 2:22-24

So we are talking about a Jesus and Mary started her purification 8 days AFTER her Son’s birth. Nowadays known as the 40 Days of Fasting before Passover/Easter. According to several scientific researches by renowned historian scholars we know that Passover was on April 14th in 4 B.C. mainly because they know when King Herod died.

Now the year of Herod’s death has been ascertained with, we may say, absolute certainty, as shortly before the Passover of the year 750 A.U.C., which corresponds to about the 14th of April of the year 4 B.C., according to our common reckoning. More particularly, shortly before the death of Herod there was a lunar eclipse, which it is astronomically ascertained, occurred on the night from the 12th to the 13th of March of the year 4 B.C.

Now we go on to those renowned Wise Men who followed the so called ‘Star of Bethlehem’ which was in fact the conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the constellation of Pisces. Which occurs every 800 years and it was in the year 7 B.C..and only visible for 15 days.

As Biblical history tells us that the Star was shown when ‘Jesus’ was born, the Wise Men walked on and were not already there when he was a fresh born baby. PLUS they respectfully would have to wait for visitation after the purification period. Which ended April 11th. We know so because of the passing of King Herod 3 years later, and seen it all happened before the invention of the leap-days, we can just count back from April 14th in 4 B.C., to April 13th in 5 B.C., April 12th in 6 B.C. and April 11th in 7 B.C.
Sometime not too long after His birthday, the wise men visited Him, and gave Him gifts. -Matt.2:1-11.  When they arrived, they found him as a “young child” -Matt.2:9, 11.
— in year 5 before the Christian era, brings us to the year 747 A.U.C., or 7 years before Christ [B.C.], in which such a Star should appear in the East.

The Star shall rise forth from the East, and this is the Star of the Messiah. And it will shine from the East for fifteen days, and if it be prolonged, it will be for the good of Israel. Did such a Star, then, really appear in the East seven years before the Christian era? Astronomically speaking, and without any reference to controversy, THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT THAT THE MOST REMARKABLE CONJUNCTION OF PLANETS — THAT OF JUPITER AND SATURN in the constellation of Pisces, which occurs ONCE IN 800 YEARS.

So to sum up events we have to see the WHOLE picture.. biblical dates, customs, prophecies and events..

Conjunction Jupiter/Saturn in Pisces, February 7 B.C.
End of purification April 11th 7 B.C.
Minus the 40 purification days and the 8 days await after ‘Jesus’ his Birth for his Circumcision equals:
Jeshua (Jesus) was a Pisces born between February 24th- 28th in 7 B.C. ❤

*To help one understand a bit more, because there are a ton of other studies that put his birth at September dates, April dates and other dates, let us remember the December date is a catholic date & not from the Jewish calander . Plus biblical months are two months difference, putting December in Febuary. Many scholars claim that John the Baptist was born in June (six months before Jesus.) Keep in mind our  current calendar is two months off, which would make his true birth month August; thefore putting Jesus born six months later, which is Febuary!  I’m fully convince that Jesus is a Pisces!



Don’t let schooling interfere with your Education.


I was led to make Novembers blog about education. Once upon a time I thought homeshooling was for crazy hoover mamma’s (and maybe that is true); however I truly thought that one only homeschooled out of fear or was told their child could not attend if they refused the “Up To Date” hideous vacccine schedule. But as years went by and I went from PTA home room mamma and being politically involved with many town & school functions to  being absolutely burnt out and becoming exhasparated at the way the school system is run. I started desiring to homeschool and realized how many assumptions I had made; for one I am a crazy hoover mamma and there’s nothing wrong with that, except when I have to cut the cord & send them out into the “REAL world”.

I’ve always had the option to do “whatever I decide with my children” but I didn’t always have the support system, go ahead or confidence that I can do it. My middle child (now 17) has had years of struggling with focus and anxiety; she simply could not learn at the basic pace of the one size fits all system.  They simply pushed her along year after year. The school system liked labels and would suggest the medication route, in which we decided on a natural route with her. Her anxiety lessened but her focus and organization skills lacked. I can’t say since I started homeschooling that she’s gotten any better with organization, nor has she got a huge hold on her focus, but since we can move at a slower pace with a one on one route we have been able to get her to a point of confidence and passing grades, very good grades I might add. And now she is getting extra help at our community college.. she needs to pass the constitution.. send prayers. she test on 12/12.


I also do refuse to vaccinate and that was not an issue with school; I simply wrote up a vaccine exemption and signed off on it and into the nurses school file it went, no questions asked. I quit vaccinating before my youngest (now 15) hit kindergarten, so yes my two eldest have had a few vaccine injuries along the way, but it wasn’t until my youngest had a seizure after her 1 year chicken pox vaccine that we “connected the dots” and I became a die hard resesacher and ex-vaxxer.

I shared all that because some of the major dots I conneced with my middle child and all her anxiety is that is started after her 6mo shots when she suffered a lump in her leg that lasted for years.. this lump created pain so bad that she never crawled and she became super anxious and this caused major constipation.. The doctor even stated that the lump was “toxins from her vaccines stuck in a fat cell” that she could not detox out. I’ve always had doctors accidently “spill the beans”; hence why the dots connect. Then at age 5 she had her one and only filling and they gave her laughing gas without my consent, by the time I realized it, it was too late and she had a reaction to the gas. She’s actually never been the same since. Her depression and anxiety as a child and teen-  her melt downs, her super sensitive heart, all due part of being unneccesarily poisoned and not able to properly detox them out. We all have diffent levels of detoxing and many of us have a mutation in one of both of our MTHFR genes.. (research it).. this is a crucial matter if you want healthy children.

With all that let me just say’ You’ve been educated on my ‘dot connection’ course. LOL

Truthfully though I’ve realized that we have made the schools system model such a demanded structure that it wasn’t until I started  homeshcooling that taking one – three courses max at a time, studing for about 1-4 hours max a day is sufficient and in all reality makes more sense- I can feed through the assignement, help them get through each section and then I get to teach them “REAL LIFE” issues and how to forget all the “CRAP” they just had to memorize… I teach them how to disecern between propaganda and truth.  My intentions are  not to educate them in basic education forums or to memorize half truths but I intend to raise  them to be “Awakend & Enlightned”  Adults! Indoctrination has no place in this  home!


Tons of love from the Crazy Homeschooling Hoover Mamma! 😉

–How did you discover you were a writer?

When I realized it was my most comforting therapy.

–How many books have you written and what are their titles?

I’ve written two books:
I was taking a book launching course with my nutritional school- we had a finish date to submit something by May 2016. My book that I had been writing since 2007 was just not complete.. It was actually finished as in material- but it needed more editing in which had to be another set of eyes other than my own. So as I was encouraged to write a quick childs book or a book of poetry, I kinda combined the two ideas and wrote, “Oraganic Baby Holistically Raised” which I used my two year old grand-daughter (at the time) as the voice of the book. It was basically a poetic book written though her eyes of how she would explain my upbringing of her. It was published on May 10th 2016 (the anniversary of my step fathers death).

My second book, “Becoming Me While Losing You” my original purpose of the book launching course was complete on January 23, 2017 in honor of my stepfather.. (January 23rd is my stepfathers birthday) making it another personal accomplishment for me.
I had a book signing event on May 27, 2017, in honor and remembrance of the loss of my mother, 18 years to the date of losing her. 😥

–What is your favorite childhood book?

Ironically ‘Bambi’ I just lost my cat Bambi this week to the hunger of coyotes, natures carnivorous hunters. 😦

me and bambi

Me & My Bambi Girl! ❤

–Tell us about a pivotal book you read as a teenager?

Read as a teenager? Unless it was assigned- I didn’t read. Seriously though Charlottes Web stands out to me, yet again another eye-opening, heart-opening subject to my now Vegan heart. Step by step I’ve read my way into ‘who I am’ I guess. I now LOVE to read, write & save the animals. 😉

–What is your writing kryptonite?

Vison- after prayer, meditation and alone, quiet time. Then I let the juices flow. Writing is my therapy for all things! 🙂

–What is the best money you ever spent as a writer?

Hands down, My awesome editor, Mysti Linne. I can’t put a price on the love, support, and awesome creativity she brought to my book and my life. She is priceless! ❤

–How do you choose the names for your characters?

Both my books are memoir’s- obviously I use real characters.

–Do you hide secrets in your books that only a few people will find?

Oh- there is definitely “read between the lines” messages; I’ve been told by many that they both speak in volumes on my many subjects. Even my first little book that is only 2o something pages long.

–What activities do you enjoy when you’re not writing?

Reading, researching, spending time with my girls and grandloves, and peaceful time in nature, It’s where I recieve my best visions and messages.

–What was your last project?

Becoming Me While Losing You. It sereves as a great ministerial tool with my clients.

–What is your next project?

I have three “next projects” on the back burner:
One is to make a study guide for “Becoming Me While Losing You.” I’ve also been asked if I’d ever turn it into a Christian movie, In which I’d have to share many more details that were left out. 😉
I’ve been asked to turn “Orgaic Baby Holistically Raised’  into a coloring book, and others have asked me to expand it into chapters on all the subjects I touched on.
And of course as a health coach I have many books started on Healing through Faith and Food.

In Future Terms



Pulling my 7 am writing grind.. yes, for me it’s so much easier to think and live in my future terms.. Ya know I’ll get to it tomorrow? Procrastination! Ahhhhh! It’s my middle name, ah no it isn’t – I’m not all bad, heck I’m a health coach and one of our talents are how to help others get things in order, how to plan ahead, how to get moving in the NOW! So I guess I’ll just hire myself to motivate myself then. Time for some bootcamp butt- kicking! 😉

In reality, the future has always been a (spiritually) seen thing for me, it’s the in the moment I have some trouble with – I know Faith is in the things hoped for, not in the things seen, and my scripture promise is for a great future filled with great hope.

~”For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the LORD. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope.”- Jer 29:11

It’s living in the now, if I don’t take my first moments of everyday and meditate on the moment I lose myself for the rest of the day… My life and schedule allows me to around 1-3 hours of quiet alone time, depending if Bob works or my grandson wakes early, but usually I have some alone, grounding time which I use for walking the neighborhood, reading, writing praying and meditating.. << that’s number one for all my clients too, I tell them to attempt a few moments in the beginning of thier day to reflect, and allow peace to enter the premises so to enter the day fueled up.

Most people don’t spend any down, quiet, quality time with themselves nor God, and that is a terrible set up for a terrible day .. Get into you NOW moment.. (speaking to myself here too).

So with that all said, I am seeking to get in the now moments more with my career too, I work from home except when I see clients and do events obviously; My proverbs woman life creates a lot of avenues of income for me (if I work them).. I’ve obviously been slacking; not really, just having a hard time putting things in a working order. With homeschooling, taking care of our little guy, and attempting to keep my husband buisness from devoring all of our time- I am one busy mamma.

~”She carefully watches everything in her household and suffers nothing from laziness.” – Pro 31:27

So with me vamping my career and sharing all my avenues, I have an event page on my Organic line of great health and wellness products. If you have a facebook check out my page for the event at: Nourishing Life Remedies.

I’m also still seeking a few health clients; I have my basic 3,6,9,12 mo programs, and as always my one on one couseling. Message me at: Vegan By Revelation (no you do not have to be Vegan- however my main food therory was plant base, so I teach on how to encorporate more and more and more plants into the lifestyle).
And never forget my main calling is writing, so I am seeking some more book idea’s as time allows..

I want to add to my ‘Organic Baby-Holistically Raised’. I’ve had many people ask for me to speak in detail on the subjects I touch on in the book that would help them raise organic, holistic families & some asked if I can make it a coloring book for kids. Check out my page: My Beloved Family

I want to add more details, struggles and victories to my ‘Becoming Me While Losing You’, because I was actually asked if I’d ever wish to make my story a Christian movie deal.. I know WOW & LOL.. Anyhow there is too many painful but powerful details left out that would MAKE the MOVIE and reach more people. Keep that in your prayers. Cuz who really wants their life out there for the world to see? Well, God asked so I wrote, if you haven’t already ordered a copy you can still order my book online or come by I have copies on hand. Check out my page: Becoming Me While Losing You. I’m also pondering a study guide within the book too.

I have a book I’ve started in honor of my step father as promised in the ending of my last book. It’s a book on healing through faith and food. Check out my page: Faith & Food for Healing; this will speak on my spritual fast that led me to a plant base lifestyle and started my journey in Holistic Health and thus began my carer as a AADP & INHC & Health Minister. It’s all part of my WIDE AWAKENING and THE SOCIETY BLINDERS FALLING OFF!

My books are my business cards so onward I go.. So let me encourage all of you, learn from the past, live in the now and plan for the future! And NEVER FORGET LIVE FOR THE LORD!! ❤

~Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.”- Pro 31:29

My Interview



1. What do I do best?
(Tell us what you think you do better than anything else – personal or business related)

I detect propaganda.. lies, insincerity, immorality, and insecure, fear based thinking. I can see through the façade. I know to know to know on things that get past the normal eye. I’m a keen detective, almost nothing gets past me. I investigate everything thoroughly. I’m also a visionary.  I used to tell fortunes, but in my new awakened life, I now rather Give God the Glory and tell it like it is.. (heed warning, share prophecies, enlighten, awaken, inspire & love); hence why my personal life either flourishes or suffers (depending on the receiving recipients personality and ability to hear the message being given).

In my business life it is what I do, I share eye opening TRUTHS. I kill the ‘clung to for so long lies’ with plain and simple yet profound life changing- belief arranging TRUTH. It is what it is, take it or leave it, it is the center core of WHO I AM!12189905_784823218294523_7111899389402740534_n

2. What makes me the best version of myself?
(Tell us the most important quality or characteristic that has gotten you to where you are today)

My most important quality is I LOVE hard when LOVE is genuine. I give 110% to any person or cause that is placed upon my heart. I give 1,000% to my convictions. I’m the best version of myself when I am loved and accepted for being MYSELF, and that is the adamant Christian Vegan God ordained me to be- because GOD and ANIMALS ! Enough said! 🙂

3.What are my aspirations?
(Describe both your: a. PERSONAL and b. BUSINESS goals, ambitions or desires)

My first and foremost personal aspiration would be to see that this world be a NO HARM world, and to see us all learn to love and respect each and every breathing soul, including all people and animal as equally worthy of family, life, peace and love. I’d love to see us live in True Harmony. ❤

“Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.” — Albert Schweitzer


My business aspirations is to someday own a  B&B, health and healing retreat (most likely in the beautiful country of Belize).. in this retreat we will help strengthen and heal the body, soul and spirit. I will of course have many animals simply to love and bring love to this place of healing also.Vision Belize

Three daughters (ages 24, 17 & 15) that I live and die for daily.My daughters

I also have two spunky, joyous grandloves. One grand daughter (age 3) and one grandson (age 1). They are my success, and I wouldn’t trade them for the World! ❤grandloves

Built On A Rock!


“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”  – Mat 7:24-27

Happy Anniversary to OUR HOME!  My husband and I built this house from the hole in the ground up in 1997. Well, we actually hired a construction company and crew. We  just picked out the details. From the model, the color scheme, the siding, brick, carpet tile, to light fixtures.. I was not as close to the Divine as I am now, I had the absolute Divine living in me- but did not always seek or trust that inner voice of God as I do now. So my main focus was “how the house was goining to look” and that it would be cozy and safe enough to raise a few rambunctious kids (and who knew grandloves too). 😉

As we sat in a clostophobic buisness office to close on a home we watched be build from the ground up, this home in which we almost lost at the very last minute.  I can remember this hot summer day; July 31, 1997, was our day of getting handed the keys to our future  home for our future family. The numbers came back that during our loan process we took on another debt (Bob bought me a $10,000 engagement ring), which meant we’d have to come up with  another $5,000 dollars at the closing.. and as a young couple with no savings (I know this was a start of  a pattern of failure right there. Do not operate out of such pattern, always have savings – budget, sacrifice, disipline oneself, do without, gain and build self control).

I about threw up when the construction companies laywer said, “well sorry you can’t have the home,” – the owner of the company said “well wait a minute we can work something out.” In those few moments of sadness and panick as I was just about to hypervenaliate, I stopped and tapped into my Divine inner still small voice and prayed.. It was as if My ABBA DADDY spoke to my heart – “the Father always provides for His children, when you stop to seek Me you will find Me, when you start to trust Me things will happen.”

~”Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow.”- James 1:17

Next as Bob and I started calling our parents to bail us out and borrow us the money, they decided to allow us to post date a check for $1,000 and promised not to cash it till the date we said it  would be covered.. (next pay check) living moment to  moment and pay check to paycheck. This satified the lawyer, and the zillion amounts of papers were signed and the keys handed to US, The home was OURS! IT WAS AT THIS MOMENT THAT I REALIZED THIS HOME WOULD BE BUILT ON THE WORD OF THE LORD!

~ “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”- Josh 24:15


~”For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” -Isa 9:6


~To all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God,” – John 1:12


~”Hope in Lord Jehovah from your whole heart and do not trust upon the wisdom of your soul. Know Him in all your ways and he straightens your paths.”

– Pro 3:5 &6

Family Melt down moments! ;)


With fathers day around the corner and as my last blog stated my next book Idea would be about eating our way back to health in honor of a promise I made to my step father on his death bed, I must share that since his announcment of caner in April of 2011, my “food for thought” has never been the same.

As  I pondered back in time as to how my truly intellectual parents raised us girls, and how mother put a lot of time, thought and dedication into the details of most our meals, excect her single mom years when she worked. We fended for ourselves, with her leaving behind simple food idea’s and on a tight budget; meals of canned mushroom soup with white crackers, or fried bologna sandwhiches with pickels and chips that my big sis would throw together, (keep in mind we grew up without the invention of the microwave, ((probably a good thing)).

I then realize that step dad was the provider by godly order and a call he took on with care and pride. He was a generous, kind, loving, dedicted man that simply worked without complaint and made sure to keep food on the table and a roof over our head no matter how hard the times were. He NEVER ever made my mother feel that she had to work outside the home to help contribute finically and he never made us kids feel bad either. I can remember as a young girl brining him thermoses full of hot soup and coffee while he was bundled up in his winter gear pumping gas and selling cigarettes at the nearest gas station.  This kind of dedication taught respect and love to my heart and I couldn’t be prouder of him. He did what it took to give my mother the opportunity to be home with us girls and that to me was one of life’s most precious gifts! ❤

I was most thankful that mom did NOT HAVE to work but could if it suited the family.  It was a family decision, a well thought out process that they both did with all the family’s needs taken into consideration. When we truly think of our necessities vs our wants and selfish desires, this is the key to ‘what is best for all involved’.  I am no way against both parents working.  I am against  however mothers and or fathers putting a pay check, career status or selfish dream over thier children! It’s so degrading to the family unit to put pride and carnal desires over our true call and godly design of the family! I see broken family units constantly, mine included. You see we can try to do our utmost best, try to follow the godly order, and put our hearts desire inline with Gods, but still the ways of the world and the lust of the flesh can and still does wreak havoc on this beautiful design of the family unit that God has so graciously considered to be HIS most precious gift in all of HIS creation! ❤

We are  human people, we truly do and will mess up! I have always drempt of being a mommy, (and a nana was and is such a awesome bonus)! I have had the oppoutninty to be an at home mother, and I have been in a single mother postion working outside my home to provide for my daughter.. then came three.. 😉

So I do realize both ends of the spectrum. I have also taken the time to educate myself while my girls were being educated. I have cracked open my dreams and mad many of them come true; I have cetificates, diploma’s, degree’s,  a practitioner license, a ministry license, I have reached a level of ordainment, and I’ve finally published some books.  I’ve contibuted to the mission field- helped build a church in my home away from home Belize; I will have a healing B&B there soome day because that is what God has placed upon my heart! HE PUT IT THERE- so where God gives vision He gives provision. I do not share any of this to brag, because not one of these levels of accomplishment mean a darn thing if I do not put my family first and if I do not LOVE Then unconditionally.  So I do realize that my biggest most precious accomplishment is that of MOTHER! My most valued certificates are my three precious girls birth certificates! NOTHING is or EVER will be more precious to ME!! Well now the precious gift of nanahood, that’s pretty darn awesome too! ❤

With all that shared and said, I have so graciously been lucky enough in the past 20 years to be able to put them first. I have worked many jobs and had many positions during this mommy journey but have also been able to stay home with them when needed. I have always PUT THEIR NEEDS BEFORE MY OWN.  Especially my sanity! I have suffered many years of neglect and abuse by my lovely family.. (My kindness gets mistaken for weakness on many occasions)  and then my kindness evaporates and I have exploded many of these times at them. NOT the ideal way to deal with family. Sadly this is a pattern of many mammas.  Definlty not a proud mamma moment, but a mamma melt down moment to be aware of: Take Caution to my new  house rules:


So I guess since it is fathers day weekend I would just use this moment to thank all the hard working, dream sacrificing daddy’s making mother hood easier without guilt ridden words or degration to the mamma’s that sacrifices for their family on a daily basis!

Most importantly I want to thank My Father God and my two daddy’s for brining me up in love, respect and honor of What God has ordained the family unit to be..  And yes I realize that we are also brought up in mistakes and meltdowns so let’s just thank God for being the super glue that bonds us together even in our brokenness!


*p.s. please lift my real father Dennis Smiley up in prayer for he has suffered a stroke while visiting family in Arizona.  Bob and I  and other family members intend to fly out there soon to be with him during a stent surgery. All is well & God is good! ❤
