“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you”

Our missional community was asked this past week by Brandon who leads our discussions, “what scripture brings you comfort?” For me, I’d say Isaiah 41:8-20 is one of many that brings me comfort because it demonstrates how powerful and mighty our God is. Isaiah 41:8-20 8 “But as for you, Israel my servant, Jacob my […]


Behind the Door (Part 2)

A few posts ago I showed you a picture of my son in his crib and how he had ripped down the bumper and pulled off his socks, etc. This morning I peeked in to see if he was awake and to my surprise he was still asleep at 7:30am, but the crib was, well…see […]


How to Reduce Camera Shake – 6 Techniques

In this post photographer Natalie Norton explores 6 ways you can hand hold lenses at low apertures and low shutter speeds and still avoid blurry images caused by camera shake.

A picnic lunch

Once a week, Corbin and I like to visit my mom. On this particular day we decided to order a sub sandwich from Lenardo Pizzeria and have a little picnic at Nancy Jane Park near her home. It was a gorgeous day and perfect for a picnic. After we picked up our food, we headed […]


Oma’s Pumpkin Patch

Today we had the Oma Pumpkin Patch experience. About 10 friends and their kids met us at the Van Ommering Dairy Farm in Lakeside. It was a little hectic throughout our stay, but we ended up having fun in the process. They have a ton of activities to keep kids occupied for hours…especially kids ages […]

Getting out of town

This past weekend we were able to get out of town and visit Luke’s family up in Hesperia. While we were there I was able to wear a turtleneck and sweater which made me extremely happy. We also made Luke’s moms famous chocolate chips cookies (more like scones with all the flour she adds…hehe), visited […]


Thursday Blahs

I am feeling a bit blah today. I can’t exactly pin point why because I think it’s an accumulation of little and big things. In a few months I will be turning 30, my baby will be turning 1, the finances are getting tighter and are praying and seeking Gods provision, my spiritual walk is […]


Mt. Helix

On Saturday, we decided to go to Mt. Helix to see the cross. I was looking forward to sharing this experience with my men since they have never been. It really is a beautiful place. You have a 360 degree view of San Diego and it’s breathtaking. Some people go regularly and hang out and […]
