Hi. I'm Trish. I love blogging on Blogger. And I enjoy helping other women whose interests are similar to mine. Blogging is just the tip of the iceberg. I also write self-help books, I transcribe in different niches, and I enjoy crafting and reading. 

I make sure to spend quality time with my family along this journey. In particular, we eat dinner together and have a family Bible study almost every night. And we also watch a few old movies throughout the week as we wind down before bedtime. Sometimes we'll even find time to play a fun game of cornhole.

Joy is what I'm always seeking. I hope you will find a little bit of that here on your visit. Simply Making Life was started in April 2020 at the beginning of the COVID pandemic. At that time, I thought women could use a little good news along the way. And it has since turned into a passion to help women who are looking for ways to simplify their lives regardless of the season of their lives they're in. It's better than worrying about what to do next, right?

Ladies, if you enjoy this blog, please tell your friends about it. My goal is to spread as many smiles around the world as possible. Whether you need housework tips or need someone to transcribe for you, I want to help you. Thanks for dropping by today.

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:

New Elderly Tips

I have added some elderly tips  to my Senior Care Memoirs website. We all have a senior in our family, such as a parent or grandparent. Or we see elderly people while we're shopping. They deserve to feel respected and independent. So, I have added these new tips as some helpful advice. Watch for posts to be added to the Senior Care Memoirs site more frequently as new stages evolve in my senior family members' lives.  I hope you enjoy these tips and other upcoming posts. Together, we can figure this out. We're going to fill our blank canvas with helpful information. I won't be posting any future updates to the other site here, so you will want to bookmark it if you're interested in reading this type of information. Thanks for stopping by today.
