If you knew my youngest son, Ben, you would possibly describe him as a fireball, full of energy. He is confident. He never stops talking, and he runs until he cant run anymore! One day, he and I were running on the trail with 2 of his older siblings. He wanted to lead; but then… Continue reading Running with Ben

Our family is following a program to read through the Bible in one year. I haven’t done this in years, but I was encouraged by my prayer partner as she explained how her family was doing this together in 2019.

We all run at our own pace. We all need different training. Each one of us are motivated by different songs, outcomes, and rewards.

Some stretch out their legs and just stride to victory,… Continue reading Things I’m Learning about Jesus…While running with my family
“Sit down!” “Be still” “Quiet!” I’ve said it a hundred times… But how do I really train them?
