Childhood Friends

Remembering a Friend

#repost from December 2019 I met this guy today many summers ago. We were both 10 years old. Through the years we remained friends through each others’ marriages, divorces, children, ministry, troubles and triumphs. He was a friend to the Tankard family for years. My mom would invite him over for dinner when we were […]


God is our Help

“Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me.” Psalms 54:4 NIV I love this scripture. It gives me hope and keeps me going. Being happy every day is a wonderful forte for me. It is my personal goal to find a reason to be happy every single day in spite […]

With All of Your Might

Take a Stand and Carry On

It is important to live life and live it freely. But how many of us are living according to what other expect of us? Do you care what others think about you when it comes down to doing something that is right for you? People may not agree with your goals, dreams, visions, goals or […]



How do you see yourself? Do you live in the  “box” that people tend to put you in? Do you care what people say about you when you try to move forward or try do something new? How many friends do you have and do they support your dreams?  Sometimes people have a certain image […]
