About Me

To quote the words of an old song , “I’m a one God, apostolic, tongue talking, holy rolling, born again, heaven bound believer in the liberating power of Jesus’ name. I’ve been washed in the blood, sanctified by the Spirit. I believe in holiness, and I suggest that you do the same. I was set free at a Pentecostal altar on my knees, would you pardon me, but I’m not ashamed!”

In addition to that,  I’m a pastor’s wife , former homeschooling mom(Both children have graduated.) and part time behavioral therapist, working with autistic children.  I enjoy life, because Jesus Christ makes my life worth the living!  I like to read, write, sing, spend time with family and friends and play word games like Scrabble, Boggle, Balderdash, etc. etc.

  1. Jen,

    I don’t know what it was called. It was like a pastry on the outside, but it had a meat filling on the inside. It was very good, and the Costa Rican coffee I had there was some of the best coffee I have ever had!

  2. Sissy My Dear:

    So good to be back on your beautiful blogspot and be blogging again. I missed my time on the computer, but I also enjoyed the quiet and peace.

  3. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my site today, and for the encouraging words. I’m a stay at home mom who will be starting to homeschool this fall, and will be a “Pastor’s wife” as of this Sunday, when my husband accepts a call to an area church! So…I look forward to returning to your site for wisdom and ideas to help me begin this new chapter in my life!

    Many blessings,


  4. Hey Carol,

    I noticed some similarities too when I had previously visited your “about” page.

    Thanks for your nice comments on my blog. I will be back to visit yours again as well!

    Have a blessed day!

  5. I stumbled onto your page while working on my Bookstore. I love to see people who love Jesus Christ and enjoy living it for Him. I’m a stay at home dad (Widowed) and just started Homeschooling this year. Thanks for the inspiration…


    Hi Dan. Thanks for stopping by, and may God bless and guide you in your homeschool endeavors. Your bookstore looks very nice, and I may stop by again to check it out again when I have a little more time.

  6. Thanks, for now it seems to be going well, but I’ve only just started. My daughter is in the second Grade, my son is in college. Sometimes I ask myself what have I got myself into, other times I’m praising the Lord she doesn’t have to go through the fiasco of Public School and all that comes with it.

    Well its off to Class.

    God Bless

  7. Hi, Carol. We were thinking of you as we were contemplating a family newsletter this year- so, I searched your names and found you here. If your address is the same, we’ll send you a letter this year. We didn’t get one out last year.

    Best regards,

    Kenny and Becky Bellew

  8. Hey Sissy,

    Love your new header. So festive!

    Do you recognize the picture? I took it in your backyard when I was there on Wednesday. By the way, I love your yard with all the Christmas decor and the waterfall. It’s like a holiday sanctuary!

  9. Hi Carol,

    Thanks for your comment recently! 🙂 I’d meant to reply before now, but..

    How fun that your daughter plays piano too! Yay for homeschooling ~ yeah, I actually have you on my blog surfer, so I get all your new stuff! Thanks for all the great thoughts!

    Have a beautiful day…
    ~ Tara

  10. Hey,
    Just letting you know that you have been “tagged.” It’s new to me and since I am trying to learn everything about blogging I decided to try it (probably just this once). If you choose to not participate It’s okay with me, my feelings won’t be hurt! 😉 I hope it will send folks to your site. It deserves to be visited!

    Find the rules here:


    Hi Kweenmama. Yes, I am familiar with tags. I haven’t done all of them that have come my way, but I will try to get to this one since I haven’t done one in a while. Thanks for the compliment on my blog.

  11. Thanks for your recent comment on my blog. I’m enjoying the blogging experieince, but hope most of all to glorify God in my photos and writing. I have’nt come out boldly so far because I hope to bring in some readers who don’t know the Lord. Perhaps out of that some relationships will grow. You can pray for me on that, if you’d like. I enjoy your site. It’s fresh and down to earth. I’ll be back.

  12. Hello, I fell onto your blog through a different one I look at. I really like the things I have read so far with yours. I don’t have a blog myself. If you don’t mind I would like to keep reading yours. It is so very nice to see someone write about the Bible and Jesus. I have only read a few blogs and have a huge problem with them talking about a higher source in life. Then they wreck it bay saying why put a name on it, and if you beleive in anything that is fine. It was nice to read yours and read the good things I have so far. Thank you for not hiding your belief in God!!! This is why I will read your blogs more often. Theresa

    Hi Theresa. Welcome and thank you for your kind comments! I can’t help but talk about Jesus a lot on this blog, because He is the center of my life. Please come by often and visit and feel free to leave your comments. Who knows, you may want to start a blog after a while. I checked out the blog world for a few weeks before I started mine and then felt directed by God to jump in. It just might happen to you too. 🙂

  13. Carol,

    I was scanning some old photos (before they turn to dust), and I came across these that I thought you might like to have.

    Hope all is well. Check my family blog in the comment link for recent photos of my kids.

    Best regards,

    Kenny Bellew

    Wow, Kenny! Talk about a blast from the past. Thanks so much for sending these. It’s nice to look back and remember that we were once young and thin. LOL

  14. Hello Carol,
    I came across your blog when I was planning my own webpage about foreign languages. I hope you survived that Spanish course and moved on! God bless you and thanks for spreading the good word about Christ. When I get it established, my site will be about spreading the good word in different languages! Don’t give up on your language studies – it can take many years to get our tongues oiled and coordinated with our brains! Buenas suerte!

    Hola Henry. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, I did survive that Spanish course, and I even did some of my daughter’s Auralog Spanish on our computer, but I still have a long way to go. I’d like to take more Spanish at our community college, but I can’t find anyone to take a course with me, and I really don’t want to go by myself. Maybe a little insecurity on my part. However, thanks for your encouragement, and I do hope you’ll stop by again.
    Via con Dios!

  15. Hi! I visit your blog often and I’m blessed by your entries. I’m real glad to bump into a blog of someone who’s a proud Jesus baby. I’m starting my own blog and would like to add you in my blog friends’ list. Hope you don’t mind…

    Bless you!

    Hi Donna. It’s nice to meet you. I would be honored to be on your blogroll, and I will add you to mine the next time I’m on our regular computer. I’m on my husband’s laptop right now, and it’s a little bit more difficult for me to navigate. I hope you will enjoy blogging as much as I have. You just never know how God might use you to encourage someone through your writing. Blog on for Jesus!

  16. Hi Carol!

    I am looking up as many of my ABI friends as I can…what i9s on my heart is the importance of Almsgiving/good deeds….this is part of the Acts 2 message that many are quick to explain away…

    take care

    Spike(Mike) Harvey, it’s good to hear from you! I do believe that almsgiving/good deeds is important. It is a way to let our light shine to others. Jesus said in Matthew 5:16,
    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    Hope you and your family are doing well. It’s good to hear from another ABI classmate. Lori Nantz contacted me recently too.
    Blessings to you,

  17. Just wondering if you’d take a look at my blog site and consider adding it to your blogroll. Thank you and God bless!
    Hi Stephanie. Yes, I will add you to my blogroll when I do some updating later this week. I stopped by your blog, read a little and enjoyed the content. Keep writing for Jesus. God bless.
    Carol Connell

  18. Hi Sissy, I dont have your current phone number as we dont have a cell phone at this time. How are things with you and the fam? It is amazing how time has gone by so quick.. I see you guys have been there for nine years, we have been gone five years now. We found a good church after we moved again. It will be three years since we changed churches all for the best. We are doing ok. Take care.

    Donna Aldridge

    Hi McDunnah! Remember we used to call you that? It’s good to hear from you, and I’m glad now that I have your e-mail address. I will write you more there. 🙂
