Memorial Day Weekend – Friday Night at the Tent

If you miss lunch on purpose so you can eat at the “food shack,” you might be in Carnesville, Georgia over Memorial Day Weekend.  Indian Creek Baptist Church hosts a three day Gospel sing and one of the things they’re known for is their cooking! In front of the tent is what we affectionately call…

Memorial Day Weekend – Thursday Night at the Tent

If you’ve been attending an event so long you can’t remember what year you started going, I guess that makes it a tradition, right?  Because that’s the case when Memorial Day Weekend comes around – I know I’ll be in Carnesville, Georgia at the Indian Creek Memorial Day Weekend Gospel Singing.  Not only does Indian…

The Heyward- Washington House | Charleston, SC

Charleston, South Carolina has become one of my favorite places to visit.  Downtown, you literally can walk past history and enjoy things like Starbucks or Five Guys in the same step.  The atmosphere makes for an unforgettable visit and this year, my crew was in the mood for a relaxing day walking around town, with…

Hymn Sing Taping at Indian Trail Baptist Church

Shuttle buses maneuvered through the parking lot to let folks off at the church doors while guys in neon yellow vests directed even more cars to various areas of the lot.  I stood watching from inside the church windows and thought, “Where are they putting all of those cars?” Just that morning, my friend and…

Live The Let-Go Life – Joseph Prince

We’ve all seen the t-shirts, tote bags and coffee mugs that boast, “Too blessed to be stressed.”  Maybe you even have one. (I do, too!) But after we pour the caffeine into our favorite mug, or, look in the mirror wearing a cute shirt, reality begs for an answer to the question, “How do we…

Behold The Man – Bodie and Brock Thoene

The last book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, Behold The Man, was such an eye opener for me.  Set during the time of Christ’s earthly ministry, it’s written from a Roman point of view and had this theme, “What did Rome think of Jesus?”  Honestly, every time I’ve read the gospels, it never occurred to me…

Take This Cup – Bodie and Brock Thoene

Take This Cup is the second book in the Jerusalem Chronicles, a biblical fiction series set at the time of Christ.  If you read my review of the first book (When Jesus Wept) you may remember I began this series for Easter and really enjoyed it.  The writing style and characters drew me into the…

When Jesus Wept – Bodie and Brock Thoene

For Easter, I wanted to read a Biblical Fiction series set in the New Testament.  I wanted something that would connect me to the time period Jesus lived in and maybe even offer new understanding in the way fiction does best.  I chose The Jerusalem Chronicles by Bodie and Brock Thoene and what can I…

Singing At Sea Cruise | Friday

It’s the last day of a cruise, how do you spend your time?  Plan every hour down to the minute and pack in as much as you can?  Find a chair on deck and relax? I’ve found that the answer varies from cruise to cruise, and this year, I took a more relaxed pace on…
