Thanks for stopping by! While you are here, be sure to check out our brand new ebook find joy in the journey: how 12 women could face tomorrow just because He lives for inspiring stories of women who found overwhelming joy despite their circumstances. These woman have been through some of the toughest, darkest times in their lives and yet stand here today to testify that through it all they have seen the face of God and Him glorified. It is my hope and prayer that each day you, too, will be filled with the kind of joy that only God can give, despite your circumstances, no matter where you are on your journey!

Awesome list! As my kids get older, they still love many of the Fall activities you've mentioned, but in recent years we've also added haunted houses and hayrides to the list. We've checked out some of the best Haunted Houses in the PA area in pursuit of some scary fun!
