The Story Our Christmas Tree Tells

Have you gotten your Christmas tree up yet?

We just did. And as I look at it today, I see the years like lines on my face. . .or the notches on the kids' growth chart in their room.  Read more...

Where Your Focus Is or Isn't

Things looked a lot different for my husband and I a year ago. You see those curves on the edges of our mouths there?... Well, they started curving downward when we were together. I let myself focus on everything that was lacking in our life. After eating a meal with a friend... Read more...

“Whatever It Takes” Kind of Commitment

One of the kids at Quinn’s Football practice 'lost his lunch' only 20 minutes in to their 2 1/2 hour practice. He cleaned himself up, laughed out loud and ran back out onto the field. Wow. I’m not sure that I could have done that at 10 years old, or at 37! Read more...

Never Too Far Gone

We got a call from Carmella. She wanted to hear the thought from Mr. Rogers that was shared just a moment ago. In a trembling voice she shared that things were not going well and it felt hopeless between her and her husband. Read more...

Jumping in!

Sochi . . . They make it look so easy. I find myself watching the bobsledding thinking to myself. . .a few seconds of really hard running, then, you close your eyes for the rest of the event. I can do that. The ice skaters doing their “twizzles” look like so much fun. It looks like something I could do. Have you ever thought you could do something, then, quickly realized you were in over your head? Read more...

"Because a lifetime is irrelevant"

Ashley had been listening to SPIRIT 105.3 for only a few weeks when she found out she and her husband were going to have a baby! He was born a beautiful healthy boy! At 10 weeks old he died at naptime. Ashley said that although it was a tragic time—she wouldn’t have traded that time together with him. Read more...

It's His Birthday

When I came home he looked ragged from the day. Caring for our two girls, Maggie and Della, can give you both life and suck it out of you all at once. When we met, he had just graduated from law school. He wore a bow tie on our first date. For most of our marriage... Read more...

Della's Prayer

This is so sweet. So much to be thankful for! Read more...

Caramel Toffee Crunch Cheesecake

My family says they are full from dinner and plan to pass on dessert. However, when my Caramel Toffee Crunch Cheesecake rounds the corner, everyone in the room is tranquilized. Read more...

Pull the Plug

My brother is a genius. I never thought those words would come out of my mouth, (or on to a page), but it’s true. My brother who pulled my pigtails, ran off and left me in the dark to try to catch the school bus, thought it was funny that I was embarrassed to ride in his 69’ Blue Nova…that same brother is now dispelling great wisdom.

  • Opa! Time To Find That Passport!

    SPIRIT 105.3 is heading to the Greek islands to retrace the footsteps of the Apostle Paul. Your bible will come to life as we explore the ancient land where Paul made missionary journeys. I have never been to Greece so I’m very excited to share this amazing journey with you. I’m brushing up on the Greek language as we speak. ;-) Read More
