How to REALLY Keep that Colgate Grin

Do you go to the dentist regularly? As a young child my parents instilled the importance of taking care of our teeth and having regular dental check-ups. As incentive to brush our teeth every day and avoid sugar, my daddy told us we would earn $5 each time we came out of a check-up with no cavities. Obviously, that was a hundred years ago when $5 would purchase you more than a cup of coffee at Starbucks. In fact, when I would get that $5, I felt like the richest girl in the world. I mean, think of all the [...]

Do you have people?

My Wesley UMC People who I've journeyed with for years now. LOVE these ladies! Are you a people person? Do you like to have people around you? Do things with friends? Or are you more of a loner? Like the quiet and solitude of a party of one? Whether you're an introvert or an extrovert, we all need people. Some of us prefer more people than others but as the saying goes, No man is an island." I have a group of ladies I have known for over seventeen years. I met them when I first moved to [...]

The Great Escape

They also have a massive garden where they grow most of what they serve in their restaurants in the community. The community is made up of restaurants, boutiques, a general store, a school, parks, and residential homes, among other things. Two of my good friends share the same birthday, so we made the trip to Serenbe [...]

“Remember your Jerusalem!”

Do you fly often? I flew for the first time at twenty-four years old and was scared to death. I used to be able to tell you exactly how many flights I'd been on, but now I've lost count. I've also gotten much more comfortable on flights. There are a few flights that stand out vividly in my mind. Like the time a flew a sex trafficking survivor to St. Louis to take her to Mercy Ministries. She had never been on a plane before and let's just say that from the moment we entered the airport until we landed [...]

Where are you investing?

What did you do last night? I attended a community awareness seminar on human sex trafficking sponsored by a police department outside of Atlanta. I went for two reasons.  First, I like to stay on top of the latest research and make sure I haven't missed any new information available.  I also went because a high school senior asked me to be her mentor for her senior project.  Her topic is human sex trafficking.  Her goal is to raise awareness in her high school and community. This was her first event on the issue and she learned a lot. As [...]
