When you know you know. When you see you can’t unsee. This is what I’ve learned going out with The Street Angels supporting our homeless friends. When I first read some of co-founder Shelly’s posts about helping their “homeless friends” I thought it was heartwarming to refer to the homeless as “friends!” Then I got to… Continue reading You’re Not Invisible!
We stopped at a park and ride along the freeway, where we met several friends. A bit different as they live in their cars. One couple had their cats out of their car on leashes.

God will give you… Continue reading Homelessness in Milwaukee
Man, it’s rough. If I’m being as transparent as possible I have to keep it real. Joey is a senior in high school, how? I shouldn’t have blinked! 🤭 We raised a very independent young man. Which can be a blessing and a curse! A blessing because he doesn’t let any obstacle get in his… Continue reading Parenting a teen with T1D
