My family and I took a much needed break from reality this past weekend. We slipped away in our motor home that has seen very little activity of late and went to the beach. It was so beautiful there. The beaches were white and the water was so clear. As usual our *apostolicness* turned some […]

The Musings of a Reluctant Drama Queen

By Sheri Boulet / a few months ago

You know, all I long for is a nice, quiet existence, my family around me, my home orderly and neat, being with my church family and hearing the anointed Word of God, nothing extravagant, nothing out of the ordinary, just peace.
