This weekend, Jason & I took a nice long walk/jog along the road that leads from our island (Ocean City) to the next island (containing the towns of Strathmere & Sea Isle). Jason works in Strathmere in the summertime and wanted to check out the beach situation, since storms tend to wash part of it [...]
Stop, Drop, & Roll…. you probably learned this as a young child, just in case your clothing ever caught on fire. To put out the fire, your teachers had you practice these three things:
Stop what you are doing.
Drop to the ground.
Roll until the fire is out.
Now, I’ve never had to use this method in a [...]
Are you up for a good challenge? Depending on your personality, or even what’s going on in your life at the time, this challenge may or may not be EXTREMELY difficult!
Your challenge is, for a WHOLE WEEK, to not complain. No complaining about your husband, your kids, your co-workers, your boss. No complaining about [...]
As a wife, a mom, or a woman… what kinds of FEAR do you face?
As a wife, I face the fear of failure - that my husband won’t think I’m good enough, that I’ll fail at being the best wife out there.
I face the fear of rejection - that if I do something “wrong”, my [...]
Wow, has it REALLY been over a month since my last blog post?! My goodness! What a month this has been! And what a major case of writer’s block I have had!!
However, I HAVE been reading… a lot. I’m currently in the midst of reading 4 books - at the same time! One is in [...]
February was the “Month of Love,” right? There’s Valentine’s Day, and of course…. my engagement day was in February as well! My pastor did a series this month on marriage… we had a “Fireproof” outreach the other evening…. Stores go nuts for Valentine’s day related love … Hallmark cards are splashed in red as they [...]
My husband rocks because… yesterday I came home with a headache, & my hubby was AMAZING!!
While I napped, he went right to work (without being asked) doing the laundry (including folding & putting away the clothes!)
He offered to make dinner (but I already had it covered).
He cleaned up after dinner by clearing the table, doing [...]

Panic attacks or anxiety
Extreme carefulness (like an OCD)

‘Twas one week til Christmas
And all through the house
The Marshall’s are typing
And clicking the mouse
How’s that for poetry? :) Well, it’s true… we’re both on our computers, typing and clicking away. Why? Because in just a few SHORT, BUSY weeks we will be officially launching our new website called NOfearYEAR.com!!
NOfearYEAR is going to be a [...]
That’s right, Christmas is 2 weeks away… WOW.
Hard to imagine it, especially when it hit 60 degrees yesterday! Last year, Jason & I were in DisneyWorld at this time of year, so when I was getting a sunburn in 85 degree weather, hearing “Merry Christmas” seemed soooo strange.
And now, this time of year [...]
