Coconut Oil~A review

Monday, August 31st, 2009

I was sent a sample of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil to try. I am excited to try it because I’ve just started learning about coconut oil and how to use it. This coconut oil smells really nice. So far, I’ve put a tablespoon or two in a smoothie and put it on toast like […]

Photo credit: jade from I was going to save this one for Works of God, but it’s too cool to save. Yesterday, Lee and I were driving around the town I grew up in. We drove past my family’s old home and saw a for rent sign. I said, “We should just call and […]

New chaplain

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

The prison Lee was incarcerated in awhile ago has a new chaplain. Apparently the chaplain is a pagan and has canceled the marriage seminars that we loved going to. We don’t go now (just in case you wondered). It was such a blessing to us and a way to feel connected for a couple hours. […]

Meeting with the parole officer

Lee and I met with the parole officer today. I’m not sure how she thought the meeting went, but I thought it was good. I got to air a few frustrations. She said nothing was changing, but maybe she listened. Even if she heard just a little bit of my heart, I think it’s good. […]
