Rise Up

As a young girl, I remember standing next to my mom in worship services at our church, listening to her sing. I hated singing, because I felt like I could never reach the notes of the melody and didn’t like the sound of my own voice. With my limited range, I would strain to hear my mom’s harmonies and try to follow along with her. As I grew up and learned to play piano, I began to discover how to {Read More}

365 Project – April

April was  a rough month with the loss of my husband’s sister and with Rayah’s teeth accident, but there are still many smiles and fun memories in the pictures above. I especially like the activity I did with my son Justice for Easter, where you can see the tomb in the garden where Jesus was laid after He died for us on the cross and then on the 3rd day, there He is – alive again!! There is so much {Read More}

Fall Family Foto Shoot

Sorry, I couldn’t resist the opportunity for some alliteration in the title of my post. I realize that this is REALLY belated, but now that I finally posted my updated review of my Christmas cards, now I feel like I can share the pictures from that photo shoot, taken by my friend Alyssa Rempel.  I already gave you a sneak peek with the post full of pictures of Justice, so I won’t include those again, but here are a few {Read More}

365 Project – January

Well, I completed my first month of my 365 Photography Project and so far, so good! I enjoy the challenge and find it fun to wonder each day what my photo of the day will be? A couple days I couldn’t choose just one and on some days I was scraping the bottom of the barrel to try and come up with something. 95% of the photos were taken with my iPhone this month, with only a few taken with {Read More}
