Let’s Double Up

By Carrie / May 23, 2024 /

Hi friends! I’ve been thinking about the saying “many hands make light work” which emphasizes the importance of teamwork and cooperation. This idiom represents how a tough, ‘heavy‘ task can become easier and ‘lighter‘ when people pitch in together. Everyone needs a helping hand at times, which not only brings comfort and relief but also…

Hello friends – does life seem to be rushing by with each passing day, month and year? Most of us would agree that we are so busy and yet there never seems to be enough time (or energy) to get all the things done. With the constant advancement in technology, we’re driven to distraction. Staying…

At the beginning of January I decided to read through the entire Bible in a year. The plan I’m following goes in chronological order, and so we just finished up the book of Job. I was reminded why this is one of my favorite books in all of Scripture. Job is an example of how…

Hello friends! As we reflect on this past year, we see changes happening all around. Change can be good or not so good for us, yet always represents the end to something. The unknown of what’s ahead can be like a huge mountain in front of us and may bring up emotions of uncertainty, anxiety and…

A Special Delivery

By Carrie / September 6, 2022 /

Hello friends! Towards the end of a morning meeting a few weeks ago, I suddenly heard the mail truck driving down the street. This caught my attention because our mailman always comes in the afternoon. Hearing the truck nearing my house, I wondered to myself why he was here so early. While I continued to think about…

It’s A New Day Dawning!

By Carrie / July 1, 2022 /

Hello friends! The beautiful Summer season has started, and I have something exciting to share: “the old is gone, and the new has come” (this quote reminds me of one of my favorite Bible verses, found in 2 Corinthians 5:17). I’ve recently rebranded my business, and have created a new website where I’m offering a…

By Carrie / November 25, 2020 /

Hello friends – the holidays are here, and I recognize how hard they can be on many of us who feel alone. With the pandemic restrictions, we may not be able to spend time with those we love. We are all keenly aware of what’s been lost, whether it’s a person, place or thing. Human…
