I have launched a new ministry blog for the purpose of ministering to women. The posts will be submitted by various authors….. Christian women with a desire to share their thoughts, their testimonies, their experiences, their hurts,… and their hearts, in order to encourage other women. We need women who would like to join us and become a contributing author. Read more about this ministry on our new blog, “Healing for Women’s Hearts“.

Healing for Women's Hearts

iStock_000012584007XSmallWelcome to our new blog created by Christian women to minister to all women.

The purpose of this blog is to minister to women of all ages, all races, all cultures, and all backgrounds. We may have many differences, we may look different, live differently, come from backgrounds that are very different, but we have one thing in common; God created us all “female”… we are women and we are affected differently than men by the things of life.

Many of us have a heart that is easily broken, but because we have others who depend on us, we often keep that broken-heart hidden. We don’t have time to nurture our own heart… we are too busy caring for others. This blog is meant to be a place for women to share their brokenness and receive encouragement from others.

Furry Friends


A new year has begun and for us it means that we have nine weeks left here in Belize. We have started the process of cleaning out closets and store rooms. We’ve begun sorting through books, keepsakes and photos and we’ve started packing things up that we will take with us. As we sort through these items, we of course stop and take time to look at old photos and take a walk down memory lane. Eight years may not seem like a long time in the grand scheme of things but a lot of memories can be packed into eight years.

We always knew that one day we would leave Belize and return to Alabama but we didn’t live our everyday life preparing to leave. We went about our life just as anyone does. We bought things, we accumulated “stuff” and we welcomed pets into our family. Not only did we welcome pets but we also rescued many animals in need. Some of our rescues were domestic animals such as dogs and cats but many were wild animals.

During our walk down memory lane, we found lots of photos of our precious furry friends so I put the photos together in a slide show to make sure we never forget their sweet faces.

Today’s blog post is for all those who share our love of animals. Our sweet pets have brought us much joy over the years and they made it easier for us to be so far from our children and grandchildren. They filled the void in our heart at times when we missed our babies at home.
