My husband Brad and I are trying a new diet.

Last week, we cut back on fruits and grains but continued to use up what we already had at home.

We are going to try to eat mostly vegetables and non-processed meats for the next couple of weeks before starting to re-introduce fruits and other foods.

Wedding anniversary

My husband Brad and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary on Sunday.
Over this past year, we have both learned a lot from each other, and I would like to highlight three areas of growth for me.

Gun ownership

Whoever holds a gun potentially has power to determine who lives and who dies.

With the state of sinful mankind, no one can be fully trusted to own a firearm, yet certain measures can be taken to keep gun owners accountable.

In any case, I would not trust any government to be the sole owners of guns.

Weekends continue to fill up with date nights, fellowship and family.

Brad and I reserve Friday nights for our date night where we can relax together with dinner and a movie.

Saturdays, we generally spend time with family or friends.

America’s Pastor

As most of us have heard by now, Billy Graham passed away last Wednesday at the age of 99.

His legacy from 1918 to 2018 is one of faithfulness in living out what he preached.

Seeing anyone live out their faith until the day of their death gives me hope in my own walk with Jesus Christ.

Losing a loved one is heart breaking.

While my own personal interactions with death have been limited, it is a reality everyone is bound to face sooner or later.

Students in schools these days seem to be facing that reality sooner.

Ice skating

Figure skating has always been my favorite winter olympic sport.

As the skaters glide across the ice, beauty and grace flow from every movement.

Watching how the skaters match their movements to the pace of the music is one of the best parts.

Growing up, I enjoyed the movie “Ice Princess.”

Super Bowl

I have stayed away from discussing pro football because I dislike controversy.

But with Sunday night’s outcome, maybe you will hear me out even though my family cheers for the New England Patriots.

My family moved down from Vermont, and we have been fans since before they became champions.

Life is full of choices from big ones to little ones.

Our circumstances often dictate what choices we’re given, but we can also impact our circumstances through the choices we make.

Two of the major determining factors are time and money.

Snow day

Snow days are beautiful gifts of time with loved ones.

Last Wednesday, while the roads whitened with the falling snow, my husband Brad and I enjoyed the additional time to rest as well as play in the snow.

We threw snowballs at each other and took a long walk together.
