More than anything, I value peace.  I live each day... moment by moment.  I do not stress over things I cannot change nor have control of.  As a Christian, I regularly, throughout the day, delightfully give every concern I have to God with the belief that I will receive peace in exchange (1 Peter 5:7).

My faith guides me in servant leadership.  It commits me to be the best mom I am humanly capable of being for my girls.  My prayer for all is to, " Receive the wisdom to achieve serenity in the storms of the day and the patience to listen actively to oneself and others in the midst of chaos." - Mesha Mainor



We are not all the same, but we should accept each other all the same

I tell my girls that people will come & go in their lives, but they will always remember the ones that make them laugh!  Laughter can extend your life.


My great-great grandfather's war registration, 1884

I love family reunions and researching my family's heritage.  My family is from Dooly County, GA traced as far back as 1820.  We are farmers still in Dooly County with the best muscadines, watermelons, and peaches.

Creating Memories

Secret to Life

Children have a short & selective memory.  I try to create as many as I can so at least one will stick!

Living off the Land

For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations - Isaiah 61:11
