  • A love of buildings shows they’re built for great things

    Last month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities.

    We stayed uptown — which I would call downtown, but what do I know? — right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers.

    I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses.

  • ‘Take five’ to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas

    Saint Paul encourages us in 1 Thessalonians, “Rejoice always…for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

    It takes conscious decision making to stay focused on this message as Christmas gallops toward us like a deer in headlights and the days get more and more hectic. When we are most preoccupied, most overwhelmed, most disheartened, it’s the perfect time to “take five.”

  • Biehl to sign book at the library

    Biehl has been working on the book since moving to Carrollton in 2006.

  • Sow fertilizer, help children grow through affirmation

    “Whatever you are affirming, you are fertilizing.” That’s been one of the tough parenting lessons that I’ve had to learn over the years. 

    I’m not a farmer. I’m not really even a gardener, even though we grew a few peppers this summer in our backyard.
