13 Ways to Maintain a Conference High @MindyJPeltier

13 Ways to Maintain a Conference High

A conference high comes from rubbing shoulders with like-minded people at an event related to work, faith, or hobby. We’re so filled with wisdom and inspiration, that we bubble-over with renewed zest for our calling or position. But once home, the demands of life nip at our heels like a tiny, yappy dog with a Napoleon complex. The toilet has ring-around-the collar, […]

Type A Girl @MindyJPeltier

Type AAA! Girl Gone BBBad!

I’m a driven, organized type A personality with OCD tendencies. A large family and many hobbies keep me from being a total neat freak, but I love having my life organized. I love making lists and crossing things off my lists. Everything needs to be done yesterday, or at the latest, today. If my house is messy, my […]

9 Free Vintage Bible Verse Cards

These Bible verse cards are vintage, but the messages are still relevant because God’s Word is timeless.

You can be ALONE but not LONELY. @MindyJPeltier

Are You ALONE or LONELY?

Some assume that alone and lonely are interchangeable. I don’t see it that way. You can be alone, but not be lonely. You can be lonely, but not be alone.   You can be alone, but not be lonely. You can be lonely, but not be alone.   Alone is a condition in which there are no other humans around […]

The Boy Who Walked With Me @MindyJPeltier

The Boy Who Walked With Me

Childhood fades into staccato memories tinged with joy or sorrow. Like fence posts, they stand tall in the field of our mind, strung together with great lengths of fuzziness and occasional barbs. Not all memories retained initially merit much value, but a simple event often remembered with fondness becomes a prized memory, the way a child cherishes an inexpensive trinket given in love. An event as […]
