Lori Parrish   My TV has a “smart” function, and lately I’ve been using it to watch sermons on YouTube. It’s a way better use of my time instead of watching reruns of the “Love Boat” or “Fantasy Island.” Earlier this week, I pulled up a...

Abbey Parsley   I wake with a purpose to clean. Not because I feel my house is particularly dirty, but because it’s been a little while since I’ve mopped the floors so it’s probably time to do so. The cavalry has arrived home (aka Husband), allowing me a chance to get...

Lori Parrish   If there were such a thing as a struggle bus, I’d be sitting on its front seat this week. It seems like this is one of those weeks when I’m in the spiritual valley trying desperately to get back to the mountaintop. As I mope in my misery and wallow in self-pity...
