Peacefully terrified.

“But Marissa, that makes no sense…” I’m aware. Keep reading! There is plenty of election talk, news, and opinions running around. I get it. This blog is my space to give my two cents and I pray that my readers respect that as I share mine. I’m terrified for the state of our country, butContinue reading “Peacefully terrified.”

This Is Our Wake-Up Call.

Dear America, This is our wake-up call. Our world is threatened by a pandemic and how do we react? In the beginning, some react in panic and buying up all of the groceries and toilet paper we can find while others react with a nonchalant attitude and shrugged shoulders to what’s happening around the world.Continue reading “This Is Our Wake-Up Call.”

“Prayer is Wrestling”

Think of that for second. I read this in my devotion this morning that was all about learning how to and how not to pray. Fitting for such a time as this.

Spread THIS, not Coronavirus.

I’m sure everyone at this point is aware of the pandemic sweeping our nation and world right now. We have all heard of it, but have we done our own research on it or are we just running around like chickens with our heads cut off because of what others are telling us via theContinue reading “Spread THIS, not Coronavirus.”

Ready or Not!

I’m sitting here at the doctor’s office, and – men feel free to tune out for this one if you want. I’m at the GYNO and am deciding if now is the time to go birth control free or not. I’ve been married for two years. We are healthy, happy and the most financially stableContinue reading “Ready or Not!”
