For the past six and a half years, I have been blessed to share the stories of the greater Greer community.

This week is my final edition as a staff writer for the Greer Citizen.

The parting is bittersweet as I have developed friendships with coworkers—who are like family—and have enjoyed writing articles each week.

Over the years, I have seen the faithfulness of the Lord.

At the young age of about six, I prayed with my parents to give my life to Christ, and I have continued to grow ever since then.

As a child, traveling with my missionary parents, I learned early the difference Jesus makes in a person’s life.

Sweet moments

Having children has plenty of challenges, yet the sweet moments will forever remain treasured memories.

The other day, Luke, who is now 17 months and has been walking on his own since nine months, fell asleep on me—something he hasn’t done since he was really little.

Love does not come naturally.

Every one of us is by nature fallen in sin with selfishness, pride, greed, envy, malice and more.

Titus 2:4 says for older women to “train the young women to love their husbands and children.”

My husband Brad, son Lucas, and daughter on the way are some of the greatest blessings in my life.

Answered prayers

My husband Brad has been traveling in and out of town to train for his new job.

Recently, he had a couple of flights to get from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the GSP Airport with a layover in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Brad was flying home after being out of state from Sunday to Thursday.

Some people choose a word for each new year.

I have thought off and on about doing so since I heard about the idea a couple of years ago.

As this year has started, I think I would like to reflect on the word faithful.

Publishing a book

Having a published book with my name on the front as the author has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl, along with being a missionary and a mom.

Over the years, I have written a number of stories.

Many of us think of the young and healthy as invincible to harm.

Yet recent news has challenged those assumptions and brought our own mortality into sharp perspective; any of us could die at any time.

Recognizing this reality can really bring into focus what is most important.

16 months

Our son, Lucas Jean Cashman, just turned 16 months old yesterday.

It is hard to believe how much he has grown during that time, yet it is a joy to watch him discover the world.

Luke is both brave and wary.

A new year

Each season is filled with ups and downs, joys and trials.

As the year of 2023 begins, my husband Brad and I are getting to know his new company and preparing to welcome our second child.

Our daughter is due April 21.
