New Page on Susanna's Apron Tells the Ancient Story

Check out the new page on Susanna's Apron, "The Ancient Story." It's a brief summary of the Gospel message. Be sure to play the music video at the end, a lovely rendition of a beautiful hymn we sang in church last week.
May God bless you with a joyous and peaceful holiday season!

Call a Friend

Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad. – Proverbs 12:25

The holidays can be magical and wonderful. While it's refreshing to break out of the routine, visit family, and reflect on the passing year, the season's heightened stress can also highlight areas of life we struggle with. This can drain a mom's emotional tank pretty quickly!

Today my depressing thoughts kicked and shoved me around in grand style. I feared the future; I regretted the past; I considered a thousand miserable perplexities; I engaged in a power struggle with my teenage son, which made me not only a depressed mom, but a control freak to boot! I felt unworthy and inadequate. I gushed tears on the way to the grocery store, smiled down every aisle, and drove away, a watery, sniffling basket case.
