For those who don’t give up

Please enjoy this post from guest writer Amy Driskill, who was kind enough to share her gratitude transformation with us. I have a confession.  I am not sure I am qualified to write about gratitude.  Recently, my husband and I got into an argument. … Continue Reading “For those who don’t give up”

Thank God for dental hygiene!

“There are kids in other countries who would love to get their teeth cleaned, Bethany.” Really, Mom? There are kids who’d love to have bubble gum scented paste (I say “scented” because it certainly doesn’t taste anything like bubble gum) spread across their gums… Continue Reading “Thank God for dental hygiene!”

Trading the attitude for gratitude

Thanks to Linda Unger for sharing her gratitude in today’s post as a guest contributor through her writing and photography gifts. I come from a family where sarcasm rules. I zing you, you zing me. Whoever zings the fastest and the loudest is the… Continue Reading “Trading the attitude for gratitude”

Amazing grace

Special thanks to today’s guest writer, Shelli White, of http://www.brandnewchurch.com.

I have… Continue Reading “Amazing grace”

Who you are is who they were

Yesterday, I sat in a quiet room for five hours, surrounded by musty old books and newspapers. As I conducted research at the mecca for Methodism in our state for one of my grad school courses, I was lucky enough to meet two kind… Continue Reading “Who you are is who they were”

I get to!

*Today’s post is written by yesterday’s featured vlogger, Henry Petty. Thank you, Henry, for sharing your experience with us!* I work in an office.  You would think this would be the end of the post, as “working in an office” is synonymous with “living… Continue Reading “I get to!”

Joy and gratitude: my friend, Henry Petty

My friend since college, Henry Petty, is one of the most light-hearted, joyful people I know. It’s not because his life has been easy or because he’s achieved every single goal he set for himself  or because he is  spoiled rotten. It’s because he… Continue Reading “Joy and gratitude: my friend, Henry Petty”
