QUote book

Do you like quotes? I am a word person and I love collecting powerful quotes and chewing on the a while, as they say. While I’ve always loved quotes, it wasn’t until a couple of years ago I purchased a journal to record quotes in that are meaningful to me. I think I stole the idea […]

Are you a cheater?


  Do you like to play board games? I love them. When my children were growing up we would play games all the time. We have a whole closet full of games. As they got older, I would purge or sell some games to make room for others. My daughter was distraught when I sold […]

McLain's Key

What does your office look like? Mine is a collection of the places and people I’ve served in ministry. My favorite chair in my office was a gift to me from the students I served in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA). It is draped with a quilt that was gifted to me from the Adullam Orphanage […]

Could today be the day?

Ordinary to Extraordinary

Have you ever noticed that amazing days start out as ordinary days? The day I got my first full time job was an ordinary day until the phone call came with a job offer. The day my husband proposed to me was just an ordinary day until he got down on one knee. The day I […]

Shark Attacks Happening Closer Than You Think

Holden Beach, North Carolina

Have you been to the beach this summer? I’ve had the opportunity to go twice. My immediately family went to St. Augustine for a couple of days and then I traveled to the NC coast to see my brother’s family for a few days. My niece and nephew and I would go on treasure hunts each […]
