The power of being a woman 


Proverbs 14:1  The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down. I heard this saying once, " I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been." William Golding.  It's amazing to me that we as women want… Continue reading The power of being a woman 

Dear younger Ana


There are so many things I've learned in just a short amount of time about marriage. The first three years (I was 16) or so I strayed from my walk with God and it wasn't until I was 19 that I returned to Jesus, but for years I struggled to follow Jesus after that and… Continue reading Dear younger Ana

There’s no greater joy

Advent tradition & day one 


Advent, there's a huge controversy over this. Should we celebrate it or not as Christians? Being that it started as a Catholic tradition... like marriage and other holidays. I love this source as it's been found to be theologically accurate: Advent calendars, used to count down the days till Christmas, are popular in many homes.… Continue reading Advent tradition & day one
