Maybe it feels like you are in a state of wonder these days….
Wondering if the decisions you make today are the best for your family in these uncertain months

Looking down recently so close to my baby girl's little face, I saw my reflection in her sweet baby eyes
And I felt God's spirit say…

I’ve been wanting to make homemade yogurt for a long time but held back for several reasons.
I didn’t think I had enough time. I didn’t think I had the right equipment. I didn’t think it would turn out right because it would be too runny. I didn’t know what incubati...

Our baby girl’s story starts before birth really, so I am going to share about while she was still in heaven first as Rena says.
Lenna means “lion’s strength” and Shayne means “God is gracious.” So there is no better name for our sweet baby girl because of what she mean...

And as I'm snuggling my nearly 3 week old baby now while I write this post to pass on what I've love...
