As a nation, we've experienced some tragic events lately - from the Las Vegas massacre to hurricanes and wild fires leaving destruction in their wake.

In Search of Treasure

by Meredith Mills @DazzledByTheSon Don’t you love a good treasure hunt?

This Changes Everything

Look-alikes

By Meredith Mills @DazzledByTheSon “You can’t deny that one’s yours!” That was the comment we heard as my husband carried our littlest into the church where he would be speaking later that morning. It’s true - she definitely bears his image. In fact, I’ve been told she's the female version of him as a child.… Continue reading Look-alikes

We Are Family

We need committed friendships and regular fellowship that we aren’t quick to walk away from.
