I Chose Wisconsin and Now I’m Back :)

For three weeks during this past month I Chose Wisconsin. True. It’s true. And how could I not? The high temps reached the mid 70’s and I got to go fishing everyday. We took my parents boat to different restaurants on the lake for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We toured a 8,000 cow dairy farm….

Why I Choose Cheverly

There is a book in the Bible that is called Proverbs. It’s often called the “wisdom book” and it contains many beautiful truths that have been helpful for my own life. With my constant obsession for homes, I need to remind myself of Proverbs 27:20, “the eyes of man are never satisfied.” I grew up…
