When we celebrate Christmas- all of heaven and earth joins with us!
The Magic of Christmas is His presence- Jesus Christ

Our life verses are
“Oh, magnify and praise the Lord with me, we will exalt His name together.” Ps. 34

Our hope is we can share with you nuggets of wisdom we’ve picked up along the way, the beauty He’s given us for ashes and the power of His grace and mercy that knows no bounds.
God is our greatest Treasure.

My mission is to encourage, bring insight and comfort to everyone traveling this earth journey. To encourage all to seek and find God’s purposes and meaning in life’s difficulties, disappointments, and challenges.
Isaiah 45:3 is my foundational verse:
“I will give you hidden treasure,

So that you will know I am the Lord your God
who calls you by name.”
