An important part of our family life is friends. My daughter’s best friend, Heather (pictured above on left) ¬†is an intigual part of Alicia’s life. They share life together: The good, bad and ugly.


My son, Austin, is plugged into his youth group Young Life is important that he connects with like minded high schoolers. They support another with life’s pressures.


I have some gals I’ve connected with in the past couple of years. I¬†appreciate I can share my life with them and they can share their lives with me.

I believe friendships enrich our family lives. Do you?

Do you have special friends you do life with?

Blessings, Rebecca


Rest & Relaxation


As I reflect on another year on planet Earth, I realized I had been remise in spending quality time with girlfriends.

So, when my friend, Annette, invited me to a local women’s church retreat, I jumped on it.

Below, we are pictured next to a grove of gorgeous redwood trees located in the majestic Santa Cruz mountains.


We had a blast talking for hours around a firepit, eating food we didn’t have to prepare, worshipping God, and listening to our guest speakers share their life experiences.

One bit of wisdom I walked away with is being a part of a purposeful community where we allow others to minister to us and where can minister to them.

Man, I needed to hear that, because I tend to go at life independently much of the time. However, it is wearisome and as women, daughters, sisters, wives and mothers we need each other’s support.

Let us consider how we may spur one

another on toward love and good deeds,

not giving up meeting together, as some

are in the habit of doing, but encouraging

one another… – Hebrew’s 10:24-25
