It had been about 4 years since I attended Buckhead Church for the very first time. I had drifted away since last Christmas but was feeling like I needed to go last Sunday. I walked in and the worship band consisting of Casey Darnell, Andy and Tan were performing “Africa” by the band Toto. It was an amazing moment. Joseph welcomed everyone with a comfortable presence that made me feel like I knew him. Then Andy Stanley walked out and began a series titled “Starting Over.” I knew at that moment I was destined to be there. Tears of love, healing and light flowed down my face. I felt a total peace that supersedes all understanding. Experience the same feeling like this. Whether you’re starting over in a work situation, relationship, life lesson, or starting over at anything, this is the series for you! You can attend any North Point church location.

I’ve always been a fan of artist Rebecca Puig and her whimsical paintings on life. I was thrilled to actually meet her and have her sign my favorite piece, “White Dog!” She started Sugarboo Designs in 2005 from the nicknames of her children. You can see her different art pieces and designs here. My dogs Parker and Angel had their lives celebrated around the world in the book “Divinity of Dogs!”
