Start Here

If you’re like most of my readers and listeners your faith is important to you. So is your freedom—your freedom to live what you believe, to say what you think, and to defend the greatest nation on earth.

You’re sickened by so much of the craziness you see and the bickering you hear in the world today. You’re tired of all the voices yelling at one another, but you still believe TRUTH matters.

You wake up every day wanting to make a difference.

But it’s not easy to keep moving forward sometimes, especially when

  • you feel as if you’ve made too many mistakes in life already,
  • you worry about the future of our freedoms in America, or
  • you fear the evil that stands against you may just be stronger than the good within you.

If you’ve ever felt that way—join the club! You are not alone.

We’ve all been there. We’ve all wondered if we could really make a difference.

And we’ve all listened to the lies designed to get us to drop out and let the world collapse around us.

I Know How You Feel

dsc_5847ab-copyI know what it feels like to fall down and feel as if you could never get back up.

Sometimes it can feel as if life has just taken everything out of you and left you wondering if you’ll ever be satisfied again.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the attacks on our FREEDOMS—both the freedom we find in Christ and the God-given freedoms we enjoy as Americans.

For years, I, too, struggled to make sense of it all. As a widow of 17 years to ALS, I’m a single mother who’s endured some of the worst that life could throw at me.

I’ve made my share of mistakes (sometimes falling flat on my face), but by God’s grace, I’ve kept getting back up—because greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. (Can I get a witness?!)

I’ve had to confront the reality that if the world is going to change, it has to begin with me.

I can’t run and hide—no matter how hard it gets.

I have to keep speaking the truth—to myself, to you, to everyone who tries to restrict our precious freedoms.

dsc_5735a-copyabcMy Goal for This Site

If you could use some encouragement from a straight-shooting, southern gal who cares more about speaking TRUTH to help YOU than having everyone like her—this is the place for you.

I have opinions—and I’m not afraid to share them. But that doesn’t mean everyone has to be enemies. I want to give you clarity to cut through the clutter and make sense of Faith, Life, & Politics.

So be warned—candid conversations take place here.

No, I don’t do “trigger warnings.” No, I don’t indulge in whining.

Yes, I tell the truth without apology. Yes, I talk about God my Father and my fiance, Jesus Christ.

And yes, if you care about FREEDOM, you’ve found a friend to keep you informed and encourage you to keep moving forward.
