I have been wanting to write this post for a couple of weeks now! But due to ministry activities and lots and lots of doctor appointments, I haven't had much opportunity to write anything. So here's a quick pregnancy/baby update: How far along am I? At this writing I am 38 weeks, so on the… Continue reading Pregnancy Update

I spoke a kind goodbye to her and shut the door. She likely had a home somewhere, and I wasn't in the habit of taking in strays. But… Continue reading Meet Macie
So this went down this week. It was Abby's idea. 🙂
