Football is now in full swing! We spent Saturday evening watching LSU and Sam Houston State. It was exciting for us since we are from Houston but live  near LSU now. We were pulling for both teams. SHHH… don’t tell anyone. We are football at home people. With two kiddos, going to games would be a crazy idea. It would be expensive, stressful, and just not a good idea. So for now, we watch from the comfort of our living room. That doesn’t mean we can’t make it exciting. We tailgate in our living room. I whip up easy...

Last weekend was pretty awesome. We celebrated our 12 year anniversary. WHAT? I’m not sure how that happened! But it did! And it is exciting. Just like birthdays we should celebrate each and every year. I didn’t think we would be able to celebrate this year. At least, not by ourselves.

It is no secret that the last 11 months have been very challenging for me and my little family. When we moved to a new state, left behind family and friends, and started a new life in this small town, I struggled.  I knew it was what God wanted for us and knew we were supposed to be here. But I did not totally agree. I was like a kid being pulled into a doctor office, trying to be brave, but unable to hide the terrified feeling and tears of what is to come. You could say, I came kicking and screaming, but knowing I was supposed to go....

Heaven is for Real is a beautiful, heartfelt story of a boy, his family, his church, his community, and God! I am very excited to share this movie with you. This is one of my favorite books and movies! You are probably aware of the book and the movie and what it is about. In case you are not here is a little more information, an honest Heaven is for Real Review and discussion ideas for the family. Heaven, faith, and courage are all themes in this story.
