  • When we first moved to Florida, our oldest daughter was 14 and not happy about the move.
    Being 14, she cried. A lot.
    One of her many places of tears was Sunken Gardens, the old Florida attraction in St. Petersburg. It’s supposedly the oldest commercial tourist attraction on Florida’s west coast and one of the first botanical gardens in the U.S.
    In 1903, George Turner, Sr., a plumber and avid gardener, bought the site, which included a shallow lake, 10 feet below sea level. He drained it and planted a “sunken” garden.

  • Sometimes I get letters or emails from people that make me want to spit tacks.
    I’m not talking about critical letters. (Those make me want to hide under my covers, suck my thumb and cry.)
    I’m talking about letters from people, from fellow Christians, who are sure God isn’t pleased with them and who are desperate for a how-to to help them get back on track, to finally be faithful to God.

  • Do you know any military who might be interested in either sending their children to camp or attending camp together?
