It’s Not Called a Hole Punch

About a month ago, our weekly Bible theme was “God is holy.” Every day that week, our discussion or craft activity revolved around the concept of God’s holiness and what holiness means.

My Final Playlist

I am not tech savvy AT ALL!  I am literally not kidding.  Just ask my husband and Sandy (my friend and coworker) who regularly rescue me from technological quandaries at home and work. As a result, the task of compiling a playlist of music on my phone has been quite a group effort and has […]
