Publishing a Book

Today I am really working hard to publish one of my ebooks that I have been working on. I’ve got a lot to do but I am feeling confident that I will finish by the end of the day. Publishing a book is not as simple as I thought. To be honest I love writing, hate editing, and well yeah I am sure you get it. Billy, my husband, thinks it’s funny because it has taken me this long to even get a book out.

Right now I am just spending time with the kids while an AT&T technician works on our internet. It has not been user friendly at all for over a month which has also caused me a lot of time as well. Hoping it will be back up soon!

To be honest it has been nice to take a break from the digital world. I can’t say my kids agree but it definitely has encouraged them to be more adventurous! It has forced them to use their imagination and has pushed me to get tons done around the house. There is a lesson to come from this too! It is so easy to get caught up with our digital devices that we forget what’s truly important in life. Hope everyone is having an amazing Wednesday! Feel free to comment below as well ūüôā

My Summer 2018

This summer is going by so quickly!!! It is blowing my mind. I was able to actually find time to finish my website today. I still need to produce more content on it but I was able to get it fully up and running! http://www.embracingtheimpossible.com

Also this week I have truly fallen in love with Pinterest! It is the ultimate guide to anything….literally lol! Here are tons of pictures for you to enjoy of our summer so far!

Shirley and Ryder

I am dedicating this post to my daughter Shirley and her boyfriend Ryder!


For two years my daughter and Ryder have been boyfriend and girlfriend!  The only time they see each other is camp but ALL year around they stay devoted to each other!  It is the cutest little romance!  I just love the innocence behind their little fling!  They are so inspiring and are both such sweethearts!  Church Camp 2016!!!

The Ultimate Gift

This week I have been at church camp and have been unable to get as much done with my writing. This week has been so rewarding though! Watching young children get saved and commit their lives to the Lord is what it is ALL about!

Today I am going to share with you an experience that happened this week that really touched me. ¬†My daughter Shirley broke down into tears Wednesday night after service. ¬†I questioned her to see what was wrong! ¬†The first thought as a mother you automatically think the worst. ¬†Well she opened up and said ‘Jesus’! ¬†At first I didn’t know how to react, I went on probing her thoughts as any mother would. ¬†She went on to say ‘died for our sins and I’m a sinner’. ¬†Once those words slipped out of her mouth I felt the tears form in my eyes. ¬†I knew then she was grasping the weight of the price Jesus paid for ALL of us. ¬†She was hurting because of the price Jesus paid for her sins, our sins! ¬†It was such a beautiful and touching moment. ¬†She will be six next week and has become aware! ¬†God can convict your heart at any age and at anytime! ¬†This was an eye opener for me because I forget how much our kids pick up and how much they truly understand!!


God sent Jesus to die on the Cross for OUR sins.  He paid the ULTIMATE price!  It is a FREE gift, ALL you have to do is pray and put your TRUST in JESUS!
