Genealogy Page is Open for Business

That's right!  The genealogy section of my blog is open!   It hasn't been updated recently but feel free to have a look around.  You can always click the genealogy link in the upper right corner of my blog to take you right there.

About 9 years ago I began an adventure that has led me to find many lost and unknown relatives.  It started with one simple question, am I able to get into the DAR?  That one question has now developed into a great passion of mine.

I have found not just one or two but many ancestors that have service in the revolutionary as well as many of the wars our country has fought in since then.  I have found great stories and great sadness, broken down brick walls, and met some family members along the way.

I'm not just focused on my own family history.  I also enjoy helping others on their own family history.  I assist them in finding records and documenting family graves around the Hampton Roads area and some near my home town in New Jersey.  

If you have any questions, I'm always happy to help out in any way possible.

Bible Journaling on Easter

I wanted to catch up and put the pages I have worked on so far in my journal in one place so that I stay current.  I focused and prayed over 2 pages today and I love how they turned out.

This one is my favorite from today.

 The rest I have done over the last 2 weeks.

I love working on these.  I really makes me focus on the verse/book I'm on and it relaxes me.  I know I'm not an artist but I'm not worried about that at all.

Have a blessed Easter.

It's been a while...

Life has a way of going out of control.  And I'm not talking about a bad way, just in general.  I mean here it is, 23 days in to March already and it's 83 days into the new year.  I've been working like crazy at work, at home and just in general while my blog sat waiting patiently for me to return.

To tell you the truth, I didn't know what to write about.  I needed to refocus and see what came to me. During that time I started bible journaling (I'm DEFINITELY no artist!!) and dove into a bible study led by Time Warp Wife.  I started up my genealogy hobby again (more on that later)  and planned out my garden for the summer.  Then it occurred to me.  I just listed off everything I want to write about.  
So That's what I'm going to do.  Over the next few days/weeks I'm going to fill in the missing pieces of the blog, introduce you to my hobbies and entertain you with my craziness I call life.
