Just a glimpse of me...

Do you ever feel STUCK? In 2000, I began looking for answers to some tough questions in my life. I'd searched high & low and finally conceded to search the promises found in the Bible. Those promises have sustained & guided me through the loss of a parent, the struggle with anxiety & depression, the loss of a valued relationship and so much more! I've found joy amid the pain. And, I want to share it with you!

    1. Yep! Life is full... and good (on most days - LOL!).

  3. Oh, I haven't had a Malibu treatment in a long time. I'm buying one next time I go to the supply store - I love how my hair feels after!

    1. It does make your hair feel great -- and look less ORANGE in my case :O
