Arrows in My Hands

Arrows in My Hands

I am from East Texas but have lived in NW Romania for nearly 14 years! I came over as a single missionary, and have done a lot since but most significantly in my opinion is getting married and having 2 boys. Now my focus is on Raising them. The name of my blog comes from … Continue reading

Sometimes you make due….

Sometimes you make due….

Living in Romania challenges you in many ways. Some simple, some more complicated. There are things you don’t have that you want – maple syrup, Reese’s peanut butter cups, brown sugar…. There are some that you can make on your own that work – the first two are also examples. And there are things that … Continue reading

Ever had one of those days?

Ever had one of those days?

Family

That is something special. No matter what your family is there. There is a Christmas song that I have loved the last couple of years, “there’s no place like home for the holidays”.
