Making Friends

Saturday I went to the big spring opening of the Pepper Place Market. I walked up on this enormous, friendly Alaskan Malamute and his adorable admirer. Normally I would have chosen just one, but I love the series as they became friends!

I love seeing the stories of the Bible through the eyes of the children at our church. They heard the stories told by a catechist then they act them out as a way to internalize what they have learned. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd reaches children from 3 years to 4th grade.

It's often said that the best things in life are free. For those who struggle to make ends meet or are homeless, this is especially true. How fortunate there are places across this city who feed the hungry. Highlands United Methodist Church offers breakfast 6 days a week. A blessing in our community.

Lenten Photo a Day - Day 8 Preserve

As a photographer, I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph events in the life of a family, my church or my community. Through the years I have experienced moments in history that I can capture and preserve. This is the best part of what I do.

Last Sunday, I traveled to Selma, Alabama with friends for the 52nd Selma March marking that day in the history of the Civil Rights Movement. It was the first time I'd ever walked over the infamous Edmund Pettus Bridge and I felt the same way as this young boy with his sister.
