Welcome! I'm so glad you're here. As a milspouse of nearly 30 years, and the mom of an active duty son, I write about all things military spouse and military family related, with a few side notes about homeschooling, running, and foodie life. Start here to learn more about me! 


I've been listening again to this beautiful music lately, by Barrett Awai, and remembering our time at wonderful New Hope Church in Honolulu, Hawaii. Seeing hula dancers bringing glory to God was amazing. This video doesn't do the music justice, either. "Kalana" means "the sky, heavens, royal one". It is also my favorite song on this album. Enjoy!
