November Sounds

Here is your November Sounds! Do you ever wish you could go back to change something you said or did? (and not just the extra hour of sleep we got last night). Well, I am the type of person where sometimes I speak before thinking, and then spend the rest of the day wishing I would’ve said something else or just kept my mouth shut. Sometimes it’s just out of embarrassment for ourselves, but other times things we have said and…

October Sounds

Here is your October Sounds! Fall is here, and I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite thing about coming into Fall is having a somewhat consistent schedule again. While the Summer brings some fun and unique adventures in my life, there is something about having a plan that makes me feel more at peace… I don’t struggle with control at all…  As we move into the holiday season, it seems our time is more scheduled out than any…

September Sounds

To pumpkin spice, or not to pumpkin spice? Or wait is it too early? While some of you are all on for Fall to begin, others have taken all this talk about Fall beginning as a trespass against Summer and oneself. Of course, it’s all a joke and trivial as we poke fun at when is the right time to change our drink of choice and decorations in our home. The truth is, as trivial as this may be, there are many…

August Sounds

Here is your August Sounds! Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your summer before we head back into Fall. I have been reading through the Psalms lately and wanted to encourage you to read this one Psalm. Have peace my friends that He is with you. Through it all, he is there – not just in the good times, and not just in certain places. I hope you can find rest, peace, and hope in He who remains faithful…

July Sounds

Here is your July Sounds! I don’t remember much of my grandmother – she was a “patriotic” woman, traditional, and quite straightforward. One thing I do remember my Grandmother always saying was- “freedom isn’t really free”. She had stickers with this phrase plastered on them and she had them everywhere. I used to stare at the one she put on my window and just ponder this phrase. Truly I struggled – I want you to picture a 7-year-old girl staring at the word freedom wondering why…

June Sounds

Here is your June Sounds! Just when I thought I experienced the peak of the cicada season by stepping on shells and carcasses for about three weeks, I realized it was only the beginning. I have now started to bob and weave my way into work as I avoid cicadas flying aimlessly from every direction. They are gross, not cute, and provide no sense of comfort when they land on your skin – not to mention the 24/7 cicada song that plays in…

March Sounds

Here is your March Sounds! It’s March and can you believe it? We are now a year into this pandemic, and I am sure you don’t need the reminder, but it was just the “other day” I came here to be interviewed… meaning last March. No way did we think this would last a year; masks and social distancing, and surely our plans would resume to “normal” quickly. Well, once again, we are reminded we are not in control, and here…
