In 2015, more than 44,000 Americans died by suicide—one death every 12 minutes, as the Department of Health and Human Services put it. The overall suicide rate has grown by nearly 30 percent over the past 15 years, prompting some to call it a new public health crisis. Christianity has declined in the same amount of numbers per year. Men die by suicide 3.5x more than women. Single motherhood by all races is also increasing. More boys are being raised by women at school, in the home, and some at so-called Christian churches. This change in God’s design is created all kinds of problems for everyone involved.
The answer to this problem is the same as it has always been. God has only given one answer to mankind and it is found in His Son Jesus. Reject his only answer and mankind will continue suffering the effects of confusion as…

I have 5 adult children and married and have my animals, gardening, designing clothes, and do love my blogs.
Describe your creative process! How do you get unstuck creatively? I usually have a vision of a pattern that I want to make and in between time with my littles during the day, I try to get a sketch down on paper. Once everyone is tucked into bed at night, I start designing. I will then scan in my sketch and redraw it in Illustrator. I add color (my fav part) and texture and then place my art into pattern form.
Whenever I get stuck creatively, I find that working with watercolor for a couple of days along with a break from the computer, is usually enough to get me out of my funk. When all else fails, I can ask my oldest daughter for ideas. 4-year-olds usually have fun ideas!
What are you inspired by? Who are some of your design heroes?
I have a lot of design heroes. One…

Ok, so it’s official. I’m madly in love and this goes far beyond my affection for Tom Brady, Justin Timberlake and quite frankly, my husband. Deny has launched the new stool and bench collection and it’s got me swooning. The girls over at Deny have been begging for a seating collection for some time now and when it became a reality a month ago, we were all jumping up and down.
For weeks on end, we tested leg designs, colors and fabrics. We narrowed down the options and landed on the Aston leg, which was the clear winner in the office vote. It’s just so elegant, sleek and stunning. Next up, we picked the metal leg colors. I’m in love with the gold, but there were lots of other people who wanted a black option. So it was natural that we’d launch with those two colors. However, I’m still pushing…

“Your heaven is within. Mine is here too, in this now, in my heart, in my body, in my soul. I can share it with you and, as I do, we ARE heaven together and creating this as our experience together of life.
Life doesn’t create the experience yet, rather, you create your experience of life. Isn’t this wonderful that you can dial this in to BEcome this more? It is easy to forget this in the world you live in, that you choose to experience fuzzy signal INside of your inner heaven so that you would focus outside you.
As you return to your Heaven within frequency, you experience heaven on the outside. The two vibrate in unity rather than in dissonance. This is the natural way….the animals live and know this, you can learn from them in this. Dolphins ride the waves and the…

To All You Dear People
I sometimes wonder after our mommies have us and
LIFE and LOVE begin does the love always stay?
My mom use to say believe that life is not a BED OF ROSES
When I think of that saying, they really ARE negative words
It true but instead… Think!! LIFE IS A BED OF ROSES!!!
From child on and through our lives we don’t need negative thoughts
its hard enough to keep your self going…. so the strong will ..think
It is A BED OF ROSES,We need to stay in the right places
Where are the right places…For me it is my God and me inside
for those that are still looking… God Bless You , Life can turnaround!!
BELIEVE IN GOD AND YOUR SELF!!!
STAY AWAY FROM NEGATIVE PEOPLE, AND LOOK FOR ALL THE BEAUTY IN LIFE
Share The Love, Peace and Kindness to all
