It’s the question that makes teachers and parents cringe: “Why do I have to learn this? Am I ever going to use this?” It’s such a hard question, because there’s a lot riding on the answer. If we simply say, “Listen, you just have to learn it to get a good grade, and, no, you’re […]

A Sad Generation with Happy Pictures

My neighbors are really cool.  They moved to Lakeland about a year ago from Colorado with two big dogs.  They do adventurous things all the time that young married couples without kids enjoy doing.  Every Saturday they have a bunch of friends meet at their house and go ride their dirt bikes.  Sometimes they bring […]

I asked if I could have the privilege of a picture with O.D. He readily agreed to my request and we helped the 98-year-old gentleman to his feet for the photo op. We had just experienced the funeral for his wife of 72 years and most of the guests had departed.  When I mentioned Lakeland […]

Will Your Eulogy Reflect Jesus?

In Public Speaking class we are working on “special occasion speeches.” Students are writing their eulogies as if they lived to ninety and are reflecting on their lives. When their time is up, hopefully at a ripe old age, what will they want the most important people in their lives to say about them? Who […]

Crazy Bird Lady

My husband Darren tells me that I am like a weird cat lady, but with birds instead of cats.  One of my favorite things to do is lay in a hammock in the backyard and read.  One day last year as I was laying under our big oak tree, I noticed a red cardinal flying […]
