Lock ‘em up!

BY LEANN DILBECK – Toddlers love to play with buttons. Our son’s favorite toy and teether was either the TV remote control or cordless phone..

No Excuses…

BY LEANN DILBECK – There are many staples in a self-respecting southerner’s closet and among them is camouflage.  Regardless of whether you actually pull the trigger as a hunter, because, after all, it’s not always about practicality or necessity, but an actual fashion statement for others.  And it’s not just your run of the mill GI Joe camo anymore. Oh, ...

Best Laid Plans… Part II

BY LEANN DILBECK – Who knew the word “purpose” could have such an impact on people, but when it is a Word from God, be prepared!
