Oct 19 – Throwing In The Towel

3:294 – Throwing In The Towel #faithbites #faithjourney towel Setting Today has been a rough day. Internet down. Kids both sick at home. Kids picking on each other. It’s been rough. I’m exhausted.

Sep 9 – I’m The Worst Person in The World

3:253 – I’m The Worst Person in The World Setting Last night my youngest was upset, and for the second time in as many nights, said she was the worst person in the world.

July 29 – You’ve Got To Start Somewhere

3:211 – You’ve Got To Start Somewhere #faithbites #faithjourney start Setting I did a thing and got a 3D printer. I’ve been #gazelling for a while and saving my money. So I did it.

May 20 – It Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

3:141 – If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes #faihbites #faithjourney changes In chemistry and physics, a closed system at rest will stay at rest until something changes. Change the temperature, increase the pressure, add something to the system, and you have a change. The same is true in our life. If we don’t make a change, nothing will change. I found […]

May 17 – It’s Not About You, It’s About Us

3:138 – It’s Not About You, It’s About Us #faithbites #faithjourney Us When I was in High School, I did Lincoln-Douglas debating.

Feb 6 – How Many Spoons Do You Have?
